── Suddenly, with Diablos as the directorI want to go hunting together.
Diablos should go hunting with Mira. I’m better than me (laughs).
── That sounds like fun too. Suddenly I was very sorry for my personal question. Now let’s get into the main subject. Please tell us in detail about your encounter with the game “Monster Hunter” series and how it was made into a movie.
I first played “Monster Hunter” 12 years ago. It was a very well-known game in Japan from that time, but it was not so well known outside of Japan. In the first place, it was a work that was developed almost exclusively in Japan. I happened to have a friend tell me about this work, and I played it for the first time. I felt like the character of Sam Neill in “Jurassic Park”. It’s amazing to see a dinosaur for the first time.
