Switch Girl mangaka talking about the drama!
Translation of Jinnai Sho part 3 (sorry for my poor English in advance ^^;)
(She talked about the scene in the park at night when Nika rejects Masamune)
For this very serious scene, Jinnai went away from the staff, stared at a point of the night sky and sometimes glanced at the photos of Nika in OFF mode, with which he is supposed to blackmail her.
→ He had such an expression of gentleness on the face looking at the photos! Amazing!!
→ When he would normally laugh a lot because of the photos… (laughs)
I was very moved when I understood it was like that he could absorb the affection of Masamune to Nika.
• I wonder if the Masamune of the manga looked these photos as the same way…
In the second panel, she said it was difficult to Mariya (the actress) to play this scene. And because the scene was filmed a lot of times to have various points of views, the actors lost their spontaneity and rythm little by little. Not to mention the cold who disturbed their concentration…
In the third panel, she said the shooting needed long breaks before being finished. In the end, Mariya deeply apologized in front of all the staff crying her eyes out.
In the fourth panel, she said the staff conforted and encouraged her instead of reproach her.
I noticed that Jinnai took care of her too. I was touched.
In any case, it’s a very interesting anecdote on Masamune. It is an unforgettable memory.
In the last panel, the mangaka said she could see that a shooting isn’t always easy because she saw that the atmosphere was tense this time. And she encourages Mariya.
