From Sachiko Kobayashi

From the start, Junretsu told me, “We’re doing a movie, and we want you to be in it,” so I thought it’d be fine to play a queen. Then I read the script and found out that I’m a villainous spirit that’s lived for thousands of years! It was too late to turn down the role, so I chose to give it a try. And I was quite surprised at how interesting this last boss, this Furo-de-warsa, is! But why am I so big? Not that I have a problem being that gigantic. (laughs) I’m very satisfied with my role. This is a movie with cute, silly scenes as well as wholesome scenes that show the Junretsu members’ kindness.

From Kazuyoshi Sakai

The theme behind the casting is “gratitude”, so we wanted to take this movie to one of the birthplace of tokusatsu heroes. We wanted to work with Toei’s recording staff, composers, health center, and everyone else we could. Kiyoshi Maekawa is our savior. He brought Junretsu together, came with us to many places, and guided us when members quit. Sachiko Kobayashi has also been a great help to us. Junretsu was supposed to appeared in her new music video “Goodbye, Poker Face,” but although we turned the appearance down, she smiled and told us to do our best as if nothing had happened. This is our first movie, so for all they’ve done for us, we wanted the two of them in our movie no matter what.
