On March 8, the awarding ceremony for the "36th Japan Academy Prize" was held at Grand Prince Hotel New Takanawa, Tokyo, and Kamiki Ryunosuke's starring movie "Kirishima, Bukatsu Yamerutteyo" was the big winner, being selected for the "Picture of the Year", "Director of the Year", and "Outstanding Achievement in Film Editing."
The movie also received the popularity award (for the picture category), and Hashimoto Ai and Higashide Masahiro who both appeared in the film, have been chosen as two of the winners for the "Newcomer of the Year."
The director of the film Yoshida Daihachi shared his delight, "Thank you. I'm really surprised at this since I never expected to receive this much. I was able to film it freely with the way I wanted, and first of all, I would like to thank the producer for that. Then the young actors, as well as the staff members who let those young actors have the place to work to their complete satisfaction. I feel gratitude toward all of them from bottom of my heart."
When the announcement for the Picture of the Year was made, Hashimoto Ai shed tears, and said, "I'm happy to see the director's joyful face." Higashide who made his acting debut with the film, also said, "Kamiki-kun, the lead of this movie, could not attend today because of his work. It would have been great if all of us were here, but our hearts are one, so we will have a dinner party at my place later."
"Kirishima, Bukatsu Yamerutteyo" is based on Asai Ryo's award-winning novel of the same name, and the story starts where the most popular student at the school, and the captain of the school volleyball team, "Kirishima" suddenly quits the team. This news about Kirishima shocks the entire school, and it also causes distortion among students which brings a disruption of the hierarchy at the high school.
