Ikigami opens in theatres

Director Takimoto's advice to new Prime Minister Aso... the movie Ikigami

Ikigami opens in theatres on the 27th of September and the cast was present at TOHO Cinema Roppongi Hills for the stage greetings.

In this manga turned movie, an ikigami is delivered to selected people to inform them that they have only 24 hours left to live. Matsuda Shota (23) plays the role of Fujimoto. "During filming, I was in Fujimoto's state of mind, always uneasy, so much so that even in my own time I was emotionally affected. I couldn't tell which was good or bad. Personally, I feel that everyone should be allowed to live their own lives the way they wish, without being made to feel shamed. I'm not a politician but I want to convey this as much as I can in my capacity as an actor," he said, sending his message out passionately.

Director Takimoto said," There are many irresponsible politicians but the new Prime Minister has confessed that he likes manga so I hope he watches this movie and steers us in the right direction. I don't know how long he'll stay though..."
