■ Comment from the original author, Hachimoku Mei
“The Tunnel to Summer, the Exit of Goodbye” is a story that was born by hitting the key with all one’s might while feeling frustrated by the passage of time. I never dreamed that the heart-wrenching feelings of those days would make a movie in this way. Director Taguchi and all the staff are passionate about the production. As a spectator, I can’t wait to see the movie complete.
