Kamen Rider THE NEXT Production Diary: 2/25 (Sunday)

2/25 (Sunday)
Today we film a scene in a girls high school.

Kamen Rider THE NEXT Production Diary: 2/25 (Sunday) Hongo has finished his term at the university research center and now works at Jonan University and High School and teaches biology. Even our hero, the protector of justice, is having trouble with his rebellious students… Although he was a genetics researcher, the students are chanting “Hongo the Virgin,” and Hongo flees from the classroom. I used to think that finding a torn page from an “adult” magazine was the ultimate thrill, but it’s no comparison to today’s generation.

Today one of Hongo’s students, Kotomi, makes an appearance. Kotomi isn’t being picked on, but she went against her peers and her strong personality is clashing with their agenda. She hasn’t opened up to Hongo either, so she is essentially a lone wolf.
Kotomi is played by Ishida Miku-chan. She is very likable and polite, but once the camera starts rolling she becomes a different person. There was a scene where she gets rejected by her peers and darts out of the classroom in anger, which was very exciting to watch.

Kamen Rider THE NEXT Production Diary: 2/25 (Sunday)Now, the text on the chalkboard in Hongo’s classroom was written by me. I studied information on genetics for reference, but the director praised me saying that “this is the best chalkboard I’ve ever used in a movie.” These little compliments are truly the best~(T_T)/
I didn’t get too many praises from the director this day…

    WTF?! Why the heck isn’t Hongo working on anymore research projects? He must have lost THE CHARM in between movies no?
    Last time we saw him, he was researching “water crystals,” aka snowflakes. And all we got was “they are beautiful.” I’m surprised Jonan University let him conduct that experiment. Hongo has mad conning skillz.

    Maybe he’s researching on the side ๐Ÿ˜› Perhaps he found teaching to be rewarding. Japan’s been having some issue with students turning into punks, should be an interesting scene ๐Ÿ˜›
