So hey guys! I’m finally free so I’m going to start translating all the HnR Live Action goodies. I’m going to try and split it up because it’ll be such a long post.
“The shoot is going well (good job) ☺︎. Everyone, the seasons are changing so please be careful in not catching a cold!”
“Recently, the weather has been good constantly ☀️✨. The shooting site is going well too!! This photo is of Mei-chan with an onigiri for the shoot”
“Hirunaka no Ryuusei. I’m filming everyday surrounded by lovely staff. I’m with Nagano Mei-chan who plays the role of Suzume. Her clarity is awesome. - Shirahama Alan”
“Today is a Hirunaka shoot as well! The shooting site is so fun! Ahhh. I want to return to being a high school student… (laughs) - ALAN”
“Today we’ve been shooting while it was getting a bit muddy 🎥✨ Shirahama-kun, we heard that you encounted a wild deer when you were moving around 👀 After that, I heard this was your “intimidation pose”!!”
“Everyday I’m seriously thinking and feeling that it was good that Shirahama-kun could play Mamura 😭 Also, this is really beautiful…!! I went to the shooting location with my assistant Kame-chan and because Shirahama-kun was shining so much we couldn’t look at him at close range 😳”
“Hirunaka (slightly cloudy) talks. Shohei and Shirahama talking in the school yard… What kind of big talk are they having…!?”
“This is a bit sudden, but seeing these people making the story that I’ve written somehow makes me feel so grateful. Wah!”
“The result of the talk… A friendly pose ✌️️✨ Their distance has slowly shrunk 😍💕 Shohei-san is cherishing Shirahama”
“When I was at the shooting location, I met Shohei Miura-san for the first time and he was really cool as a gentleman, it’s almost like he came out of a shoujo manga I thought “This is so luxurious having a guy like him playing Shishio…!!!”. I’ve been impressed. I’m sorry for running my mouth like this 😭”
“Today is a Hirunaka shoot ☄️ I haven’t been excited on the ground in a long time 🔥😂 A flare from a stretch! 🌀”
“Practising repeatedly whilst on break…Mei-chan wants to be good enough so that she can boast at these stilts 😂 Look at the hands 👀✨ On this blue sky day, isn’t this smile such a match!? I have a video of this so please look forward to it (^^)!!”
“Shishio-sensei and Mamura 🐴 Their roles often has a lot of conflicts but… once the camera stops they become the friendly pair. These are 2 photos taken on their breaks”
For the people who might be disappointed with the cast PLEASE READ. Yamamori explains a lot of things here! Cast confirmation news here.
“The cast has been announced! This will be long so I’ll summarise it.
Without further ado, the cast has been announced but this was honestly the most difficult part… When the live action was announced, the cast was not decided at that time (the live action itself was decided long ago). The creators tried to really live up to my hopes… even so it was still undecided. In this time, there were a lot of things that happened… but I still looked up to the heavens. I had a lot of pressure from work and deadlines, so the people who decided the cast was undertaken by the production team.
In particular, Alan Shirahama did not know about this production at all when the announcement was serialized, he graciously took on the role of Mamura who was based on another model. On top of that, in order to fully immerse himself into the role, he has reduced his schedule drastically. I am very grateful.
In fact, I met up with Shirahama-san and of course Nagano-san and Miura-san as well. Everyone seemed to understand their character really well so I’m relieved.
Of course, there are a lot of fans might be “hmmmm”. So it’s best if you guys to think that “the original is the original” and “the film is the film”. Also, there are some people who never wanted a film to being with as well, I’m planning to write a one-shot about the continuation for the story of HnR, so please look forward to that (!). You are free to watch or not to watch the film, I’ll leave that up to you. Personally, I’m looking forward to it. This became really long but for now, I will do my best with my poor ability.
Thank you for your kind words everyone. I’m really happy that I draw manga!”
