First-day-screening event of new movie "Tantei wa BAR ni iru 3"

The first-day-screening event of new movie "Tantei wa BAR ni iru 3" was held at Marunouchi TOEI on 1 December which was attended by the director Yoshida Teruyuki and cast members Ooizumi Yo, Matsuda Ryuhei, Kitagawa Keiko, Maeda Atsuko, Shison Jun and Suzuki Sawa. Ooizumi commented enthusiastically that the feeling of seeing the film's release was as if he had raised a son and was about to send him off to be on his own while Matsuda was his usual subdued self which made Ooizumi poke fun at the latter for being an interesting person. Ooizumi then said that although he thought that he was funnier than Matsuda, he was jealous of Matsuda's ability to make people laugh just by speaking in a dazed state but he had to wear just underwear in the freezing Otaru winter to achieve a similar effect. However, he went on to praise Matsuda for being such a reliable partner and regarded it as his luck to be able to do something so happy with the latter.

Upon hearing Ooizumi's words about him, Matsuda was smiling and asked what good points Ooizumi had. As Matsuda paused for an answer, Ooizumi hurried him to come up with something which led Matsuda to say that it is very enjoyable to talk to Ooizumi even though the things he say aren't actually that funny by nature. As such, he hoped to become someone who can speak well like Ooizumi but revealed that he actually thought of perming his hair like Ooizumi and later realised that changing his appearance won't change his personality anyway. Matsuda expressed his gratitude to be able to participate in the series and hoped that this would continue for a long time.

There was an open call for applications from various cinemas so that the detective i.e. Ooizumi could be dispatched to help them. As such, before the event, Ooizumi had taken on a part-time job from 10am to 12 noon at Cineplaza Sun to Moon in Shizuoka to help the staff there with various tasks as they were short-handed. A video showing what he had done in those two hours was shown during the event which made Kitagawa exclaim that she would have loved to tag along to see what he did while Maeda expressed her surprise that he had done so much in the morning. When Shison revealed that he was sleeping during the same time while Ooizumi was working, the latter "chided" him for doing that. Ooizumi revealed that he only got 100 yen as transportation and suffered a huge loss since he took the Shinkansen to Shizuoka. He also commented that it was tougher to do the promotional rounds as compared to the filming since he was interviewed by more than 300 media organisations.

At the end of the event, Ooizumi said that they hoped to work hard towards another installment in this series so he asked for everyone's support to make Part 3 a success in order for their dream to materialise.
