It was Tegoshi’s turn to update this week.
He said he was writing from the set of ‘Hontoni Atta Kowai Hanashi’ and that that day they would be finishing up filming. He said it was fun and that he’d wanted to do horror.
He talked about the sound of cicadas in summer and all the things he’d been able to do this summer, including go to the beach twice and see fireworks. Apparently from the set of ‘Hontoni Atta Kowai Hanashi’ they were able to see as many as four different fireworks shows so he was able to watch with the staff.
Tegoshi said he’s playing lots of sports, soccer and golf. The one demerit of summer is getting tanned. At the end he asked us to wait as he’s working hard to deliver even at least one more work before the year’s end.
