Iwata commented that this is the first time that he is playing a manga character and with a physical handicap. As the theme of living with one's most important person and coping with the challenges of a handicap are serious topics, he will put in his best effort to make the story as easy to identify with as possible. As for Sugisaki, she hopes to show the charm of the story directly to the viewers and try her best to portray her character.
Filming began on 2 June and is expected to wrap up by mid July. The movie will be shown in cinemas in 2018.
