The cast of veteran actors supports the movie.
Main cast Mamoru (Rikusho Yoshimoto) 12 years old
She is shy and is always shy. The only time he can express himself is in front of his mother, father, and best friend Kouga. Although he is smart and gets good grades in class, he is completely labeled as a nerd by society’s standards. He always walks through the school hallways with his eyes downcast, unable to maintain eye contact with others for more than 10 seconds, and immediately turns his head down. My hobbies are astronomy, mathematics, and history. And my love for heavy metal comes from my father. Being a fan of heavy metal is Mamoru’s only cool hobby that he can be proud of. He is always loyal to his only friend Kouga. He has been his best friend for many years and would do anything for Koga, who is like a real brother to him. Kouga (Ota Saiuchi) 12 years old
I believe there is nothing scary on earth. Tough and stubborn. Her parents were alcoholics and gamblers, and she grew up in a difficult family environment, far from a normal life. His grades in studies are the worst, and he is only interested in baseball and judo. Although he has enough elements to fit into the cool group at school, he is always by Mamoru’s side, his childhood friend and lifelong best friend. She deeply appreciates and respects the fact that Mamoru never treats her like an idiot and continues to support her so that she can do her best in studies. I have never received such support from my family. Veteran actor cast
