Otogawa is a character that I have never played before, and it was a challenge for me, but I can’t see this kind of scenery. Thanks to everyone’s support.
I’m looking forward to seeing what the end of the TV anime will look like.
Witness the new “odd taxi” at the theater!

It is a great honor and happiness to be involved in this work again as a movie. I was able to make it while having fun. After that, I was really asked what would happen to Otogawa, so I presented one answer (I’m not saying it would help). Please check at the theater.
