-Profile of Hiromi Sakimoto-
Born in Tokyo in 1986. Worked as a child actor from the age of 6. After attending Kaijo Junior High School and High School, graduated from Keio University Faculty of Law, Department of Political Science. His major works include the serial TV novels “Wakaba”, “Yamikin Ushijima-kun”, “Kasouken no Onna”, and “Kids War”. “Quiz Hexagon! ] Also appeared. Currently, he not only works as an actor, but also disseminates financial information as an asset management advisor.
—-As an actor, I heard that during the period when you played the role of a collector in the “Yamikin Ushijima-kun” series, you were accumulating debts from consumer finance in your private life. Is that true?
In my 20s, I was able to earn a stable income and my standard of living was rising. The debt of the loan swelled up. While facing various debtors that appear in Ushijima-kun, I secretly went to the consumer finance ATM to return the debt, worried about what I would do if the debt in my private life was found out and made the news. rice field.
—-What are the characteristics of people who fail financially? I think that people who have a gap between their self-evaluation and the evaluation of others, or who cannot see things objectively, are unsuitable for managing money, including investments. Also, there are many people who do not have a firm grasp of “the amount of money they can spend” as a characteristic of those who fail. At least it is important to create something called “money that should never be touched”. I think people who can’t follow the rules they set for themselves are the ones who end up making money mistakes. But humans don’t understand themselves. Therefore, “Yamikin Ushijima-kun” shows the image of a person who fails with money by pattern, so you can project yourself while watching the story, and you will notice the money drawn in this work by talking to people. , I feel that it is a work that will be an opportunity to learn.
—-Is there anything you want to say to your past self or what you learned from your money-related failures?
There are too many failure episodes to choose from (bitter smile), but I don’t think you’ll know unless you look at it painfully. There is nothing better than not failing, but I feel that there is no chance to change other than seeing a painful eye. In the Ushijima-kun series, you can experience many patterns of failure vividly, so on the other hand, it is a good teaching material that can be used as a teacher. And I would like to tell my past self, “I want you to identify the people who are really important to you, and even if you are a little embarrassed, I want you to take good care of them on a daily basis.” When I was most in trouble with money, I wasn’t kind to my closest family. There was a time when I got carried away and looked down on my family. But in the end, I was able to recover because of the help of my family, and it was my family who became my spiritual support. Now I take care of my family and try to get together regularly. I have a nephew, so I’m completely an uncle. I want to buy my nephew toys and do whatever I can unconditionally.
—-You said that your dream for the future is to become the cornerstone of the establishment of finance that connects the entertainment world and investors.
I would like to create a form of financing for movies and stage productions. Unlike the United States and China, Japan doesn’t have a movie fund that individuals can invest in, so I thought it would be nice to have a form of crowdfunding to create interesting films. I like Japanese entertainment,
I believe that I can make a contribution that is unique to me. Also, the current situation is that I am studying while starting YouTube to grow my influence.
—-Please tell us the highlights of the currently airing “Yamikin Saihara-san”. The highlight is the heartwarming scene where some of the characters have not changed, while others have evolved and worked properly. I think that the Ushijima-kun series is more enjoyable than other works in that characters from the past reappear at unexpected times, and I want you to enjoy the depth of emotion.
—- Do you have a strategy for the series that you would recommend to those who came to know about Ushijima-kun through Yamikin Saihara-san? There are a total of 8 works in the series, which is a lot, but if you look at all of them, they are connected, so please take a look at them all! That’s what I think, but if you’re interested in seeing Saihara-san, who’s currently airing, I think it’ll be easier for you to enjoy it if you watch just season 2 of the movie.
—-Were there any quotes from the Ushijima-kun series that touched your heart? “People change if they take responsibility for what they have done.” We tend to think that changing ourselves means throwing away the past or not being who we used to be, but rather, it’s like cleaning up the road we’ve walked so far, and regretting what we left behind. I think it’s about going back to the part where you were immature and starting over from there. I think that way of thinking is very effective if you want to change yourself. Many of the quotes that Ushijima has come up with resonate with me.
—-You can enjoy video works such as popular movies, dramas, and live videos such as the Ushijima-kun series on dTV. How do you usually enjoy video content, Mr. Sakimoto?
Originally, I really like watching anime, but it’s a pity that I haven’t been able to watch it much lately because I’ve been so busy. Also, since I got married this year, my wife is watching Korean dramas and live videos of male idols at home, and I look at them sideways. Even though he said he doesn’t like handsome wives… lol
—-Finally, what message would you like to convey through your past experiences?
“Aren’t you accumulating mental debt?”
If there are things that have not been settled in the past, other things will not go well. I was not good at facing things that were inconvenient, but now I think that in the end, facing the negative legacies was the shortest way to focus on the “now.”
