Completion screening event of new movie "Sekai wa kyou kara kimi no mono"

The completion screening event of new movie "Sekai wa kyou kara kimi no mono" was held on 5 July which was attended by the director Ozaki Masaya, cast members Kadowaki Mugi, Miura Takahiro and Hirukawa Yu as well as Fujiwara Sakura who sings the theme song for the movie. The movie will be shown in cinemas from 15 July.

Kadowaki plays the lead character Konuma Mami who has been shutting herself at home since she was in senior high school and spends all her time on manga and copying illustrations. At the recommendation of her father Eisuke (Makita Sports), she goes to work at a gaming company where she finds bugs in their products. One day, she helps to draw the illustrations in the game managed by her colleague Yabe Ryotaro (Miura Takahiro) and is recognised for her talent so she is asked to take on the job of drawing character illustrations. Mami develops feelings for Ryotaro and decides to face up to her own issues through her illustration work. Co-stars also include Hirukawa Yu and YOU.

The director revealed that he made this movie with the intention of doing a comedy featuring an unusual girl who is an introvert and discovers a new world through her talent. As such, he decided to choose Kadowaki to play the lead since they had worked together in the FujiTV drama "Black President" before when Ozaki wrote its script. On the other hand, Kadowaki commented that her character Mami is like the female version of Ozaki as she saw similarities between them during the filming e.g. a slightly hunched back. As for similarities with herself, Kadowaki cited the lack of interest in trends and the gap in how they treat the things which matter and don't matter to them.

As Miura who plays Mami's colleague had a lot of scenes with Kadowaki, he was asked about what kind of advice he had for people who needed to break out of their comfort zone. In response, Miura said that there was no need to do something drastic but rather, a small change will probably be sufficient. Upon hearing this, Kadowaki laughed and said that he has an interesting way of looking at things.
