Sakurai-san acts a university professor of earth science·Aoe Shusuke. The character investigates two consecutive suspicious death incidents at a strange hot spring, trying to find out the truth. With expectation on Director Miike’s work “Many staff in this crew also worked in “Yatterman”, I savour the joy of being able to be same members again”, the filming started with the aim of making a new hit work.

The filming started crank in at Kanto suburban. The co-cast includes Hirose Suzu-san (18) and Fukushi Sota-san (23). Director Miike also has confidence “there is no way it isn’t interesting”.

While he is active in works of artist and caster, he would also demonstrate his excellence in acting work stimulated by the two co-acts with whom he works for the first time.
