Interview

About Chapter Three:

The final chapter of the trilogy is both philosophical and touching, maybe more so than the original manga. To play the part of Konchi I had both my eyebrows shaved at one edge and lowered them with my facial muscles. I also lowered the corners of my mouth as much as humanly possible to replicate Konchi's appearance in the original manga. Teruyuki Kagawa and Takako Tokiwa told me that I looked exactly like him so I was happy. It was exciting to perform in the concert scene in front of all those extras. The scenes with Masao Tamura at the abandoned factory were also exhilarating, with the helicopter and all. That's what big budget moviemaking's about!
