Honey and Clover
Toma Interview Part II


Q 璃子ちゃんとは撮影の合間、どんな話をしているんですか?
A 最初は食べ物の話から入って…。好きな食べ物とか嫌いな食べ物の話とか。あと、ゲテモノの話(笑)。璃子ちゃんが本を読んでいて、「何の本を読んでいるのかな?」って思って見たら、ゲテモノの本で(笑)。「今日、私、ゲテモノの本を持ってきたんで、後で一緒に見ましょう」って言われました(笑)。「そういうのも読むんだ?幅広いね」って感心しました(笑)。

Q 生田さん、璃子ちゃんのおふたりに、原田夏希さん、向井理さん、成宮寛貴さんを加えた5人は、本当に仲がいいですよね。
A ロケの合間とかも、気づいたら5人が固まっている、みたいな感じですね。「まさにいまこの感じ、“ハチクロ”じゃん!」みたいな雰囲気に、スッと入れましたね。

Q 璃子ちゃんは、原作のキャラクターでは森田さんが好きだそうですね。
A 本人にも言ったんですけど、前にテレビのインタビューを見てたら、「『ハチミツとクローバー』が凄く好きで、いつも読んでるんです。森田くんとか、真山くんとか凄くいいですよね」って言ってたんですけけど、「竹本」なんて「た」の字も出てこなかった(笑)。

Q 今回は、またまた片思いする役ですが…。
A 寂しいですね(笑)。竹本の恋愛は、そこを超えちゃってる感じもありますからね。一応「好きだ」という気持ちは伝えるけど、受け入れてもらえなくても言ったことを後悔していないし…みたいな。男も女も、恋愛によって変ることって凄くあると思うんですよね。だから、そこはリアルに表現できたらいいな、って思っています。

Q “片思い”と聞いて思い出すことは?
A 片思い…難しいですね。後で、そのときに聴いていた曲とか見ていた景色とかを思い出したりするものじゃないですかね? あとは…冬場に片思いすることが結構多いかもしれないですね。

Q 改めて、『ハチミツとクローバー』の魅力とはどこにあると思いますか?
A 凄くキレイな漫画だと思います。どこにもない、『ハチクロ』だけの世界観があるし、たくさん出てくる詩的な部分も凄くステキだし、おバカな部分とせつない部分のバランスもいいし…。ドラマも、そういうバランスを大事にしながらいけたらいいですね。芝居中も、何かしら動いていることが多くて、止まってしゃべり合っている、というよりも、細かく作りこんでいるんですね。監督も、男3人でいるときは、アップよりも引きの絵を撮ったりすることが多くて…。そういうグループ感みたいなものは、ずっと大事にしていきたいですね。

Q. What do you talk about with Riko-chan during filming breaks ?
A. At first, it was about food... The kind of food we like and don't like. After that, we talked about getemono (*laugh*) Riko-chan read a book on it [What kind of book does she read, I wonder ?] I thought and went to have a look. It's a book on getemono (*laugh*). [Today I brought this getemono book here, so let's read it together from the beginning] she said (*laugh*) [She reads this kind of thing ? Reads widely, doesn't she ?] I was impressed (*laugh*)

getemono --> strange food

Q. Ikuta-san, you and Riko-chan get along well with the rest Narimiya Hiroki-san, Mukai Osamu-san and Harada Natsuki-san, don't you ?
A. During times like filming breaks, the 5 of us are noticeably getting closer, I can feel it. [Just like that, and we feel this way already, it's really Hachikuro isn't it ?] We bonded fast.

Q. Riko-chan seems to have a fondness for the character of Morita-san in the original work right ?
A. Yeah, she said it herself, before she watched it on television, she really loves Honey and Clover and always reads it. She said people like Morita-kun and Mayama-kun were great. Takemoto's character wasn't mentioned (*laugh*)

Q. Is it a a one-sided affair again this time...
A. It's lonesome, isn't it ? (*laugh*) Takemoto is going to experience that kind of feeling. For once, to able to tell someone [I like you] and not feel regret about it ... I want to try it. Man or woman, to change because of love is a wonderful thing isn't it. So, to represent it 'real' in that way would be good, wouldn't it.

Q. When you hear "unrequited love", what do you think of ?
A. Unrequited love... it's difficult isn't it. During that time, when you listen to some music or glimpse at certain scenery, the memories will come back. Perhaps, during the winter season there's many cases of unrequited love.

Q. What do you think, is the charm in Honey and Clover ?
A. I think it's a really beautiful manga. You can't find it anywhere else. In Hachikuro's world, a lot of of lovely poetic moments will appear, baka moments, painful moments, there's good balance... Even in a drama that kind of balance is an important quality. In plays also, there are many things to move it along, the right moment to stop, to do a detailed production. The director, there are people to upload, to do filming, many things ... That sort of group feeling, it's important to go on doing it this way.
