Good! All those people...looks like it was a big production. How long did it take to do? And where is that?

It took two days. The first day was all in Makuhari with Koide, Tamesue, Suetsugu and some of the group running scenes.

The morning of the second day was around Tocho in Nishi Shinjuku. That's where the scenes with Wainaina and Soh at the beginning were filmed, along with the part where we're running in place. In the afternoon we went back to Makuhari to do more of the group running scenes and the parts with Masuda and Neko.
