Hayashi commented that when he read the original manga, he was drawn strongly to the story which gave a lot of courage to him as the group of cherry boys in their mid 20s try to overcome their deficiencies and inferiority complexes just before they are about to give up on their lives. As such, he hoped that the audience will be able to empathise with the troubles of these young men and how they try to overcome their problems. As for Yanagi, he reflected on the filming which ended about 6 months ago and said that it brought back memories of his younger days and they were very sad as the approached the end of the filming. Last but not least, Maeno said that the staff and cast had put in their all for this movie and hoped that everyone will be able to watch this film which discusses the theme of virginity in a serious manner.
Filming of the movie took place from late March to early April in Kanagawa Prefecture and the film will be shown in cinemas from 17 February 2018.
