First-day-screening event of new movie "Sakurada Reset Zenpen"

The first-day-screening event of new movie "Sakurada Reset Zenpen" was held at TOHO Cinemas Shinjuku on 28 March which was attended by the director Fukagawa Yoshihiro and cast members Nomura Shuhei, Kuroshima Yuina, Taira Yuna, Kentaro, Tamashiro Tina and Tsunematsu Yuri. The movie is set in a town named Sakurada where half of its residents have some form of a special power. Nomura plays the role of Asai Kei who has the ability to maintain memories while Kuroshima plays Harusaki Misora who can turn the world's time back by a maximum of three days. Kei and Misora combine forces to turn the world's time back in Part 1 to save their classmate from dying due to their previous reset action while Part 2 describes how they try to stop a plan about Sakurada's future.

Nomura commented that he had been doing PR for the movie over the last two months and appearing in variety programmes almost every day so he was very relieved that the movie is finally released although the feeling of realisation hasn't really sunk in yet for him. Nonetheless, he could see the positive side of the PR appearances as some people would have come to watch the movie after seeing him on TV.

During the event, when asked about any special powers they have, Nomura said that he is a lucky person who doesn't get into trouble because he knows who he can become close with and who he should stay away from. Upon hearing this, Kentaro retorted jokingly that Nomura is actually the one who causes the trouble and disappears without a trace immediately. The director also chipped in to say that Nomura has double standards because when he got stung by an insect during the filming, Nomura continued with the shooting. However, when Kuroshima got stung, he made the director suspend the filming for her which made everyone laugh at this comment.
