Miyazaki, who is in charge of the the protagonist Hana's voice, commented on Osawa, who voices her husband 'wolf man', saying, "He is a kind person. Even on days we didn't have dubbing, he would show his face on set. He would bring delicious gifts, and would play with the child actors."

In response, Osawa said, "I had time to spare." He continued by praising Miyazaki, "Miyazaki-san has the ability to concentrate. On set, she would release a good atmosphere. Everyday was fun."

Other attendees of the event included Ono Momoka, Kabe Amon, Kuroki Haru, and Nishii Yukito who provided the voices for Ame and Yuki. Ono reflected on the time when Osawa played with her saying, "Osawa-san drew a treasure map, and we looked for treasure while looking at it. But the treasure turned out to be snacks Osawa-san bought." Kabe also shared, "The treasure upgraded every time. He's a very good person."

On this day, it was announced that the movie will be released in 34 different countries and regions. The world premiere will be held in France on June 25th.
