First-day-screening event of new movie "Yamikin Ushijima-kun The Final"

The first-day-screening event of new movie "Yamikin Ushijima-kun The Final" was held at Cinema Mediage on 22nd October which was attended by the director Yamaguchi Masatoshi and cast members Yamada Takayuki, Ayano Go, Nagayama Kento, Mogami Moga, Takahashi Maryjun, Yabe Kyousuke, Tamashiro Tina, Ando Masanobu, Mamiya Shotaro, Taiga, YOUNG DAIS and Sakimoto Hiromi.

During the event, Yamada denied that there was a likelihood of another sequel being made for the "Yamikin Ushijima-kun" series which was met with cries from the audience asking him to reconsider the decision. However, Yamada said that since this final movie already depicts the past of Ushijima, he thinks that those who watch it will not think of wanting a sequel. He thanked the fans for their support all this while as without it, they would never have managed to come this far.

Sakimoto and Yabe who play Ushijima's subordinates for the past six years, commented that this is a work which they will never forget. Yabe joked that although he is already 43 and been in showbiz for 25 years, he has been playing a 26-year-old for the past 6 years so for him, this final movie is probably the limit for him too. As for Sakimoto, he looked upon the last six years as a very precious period of his life.

Takahashi who plays a rival moneylender of Ushijima, said that now that the filming had concluded, the rivalry between her and Yamada has also ended and she praised him for having done very well in the last six years. She also asked Yamada to bring them out for dinner which he agreed to immediately.

Ayano who plays Ushijima's buddy, expressed his respect for the crew and cast for their hard work over this long period of time. Although he only joined this team four years ago, he was glad to be able to participate in the series and thanked Yamada for taking the lead all this while.
