Interview

About Chapter Three:

I've been in a couple of movies but I've never played the part of a bassist. It was a great experience. Since I can't play the bass guitar, I had to practice. I like the song Urawsawa wrote. The music and lyrics are great. Listening to it, I can imagine what kind of rock'n'roll life Urasawa led. He has musical roots similar to mine so I understand what the song meant for him. Toshiaki Karasawa's depiction of Kenji playing the guitar is so authentic that I couldn't help admiring his acting spirit.
