Completion screening event of new movie "Okuda Tamio ni naritai Boy to Deau otoko subete kuruwaseru Girl"

The completion screening event of new movie "Okuda Tamio ni naritai Boy to Deau otoko subete kuruwaseru Girl" was held on 14 August which was attended by the director Ohne Hitoshi and cast members Tsumabuki Satoshi, Mizuhara Kiko and Arai Hirofumi. The movie will be shown in cinemas from 16 September.

 The film is based on the same-titled manga by Shibuya Chokkaku which was serialised in "Shukan SPA!". Tsumabuki plays the role of a magazine Kooroki Yuuji who aspires to live like singer-songwriter Okuda Tamio while Mizuhara plays Amami Akari who works at an apparel maker's promotions department. After Kooroki falls in love with Akari at first sight and they start dating, she starts to show the bewitching side of her and messes up the lives of the men around her.

As there was a mass group date side event involving the audience of 100 young men and women before the main event, the atmosphere was somewhat different from other similar screening events. With regard to this, Tsumabuki joked that he never imagined that the event would have such a flashy feel and suggested that those who had met someone they liked today should invite that person out again when the movie is officially released.

When asked to comment about the movie, Tsumabuki said that the story is mainly based on the wild imagination of men and the lifestyle magazine MALET featured in the movie will be released for real on 31 August. He also revealed that he had contributed many things to this magazine such as shooting the cover's photo. On the other hand, Mizuhara commented that this is the first movie that she had kissed and removed her clothes so many times but it was a fun filming experience especially since she had to apply cream to her breasts and buttocks to make them look good on screen. As for Arai, he said with a wry smile that the most memorable thing for him during the filming was that he suffered a slipped disk.
