Haha also added the caption, “I won’t say much. Thank you for allowing me to experience an era with you. The Bible that helped me end my wandering period… I love you.”
Then, using the hashtag function, the comedian said, “I didn’t know that happened to Ryota Miyagi. I love you”, “Hanamichi Sakuragi is still the same. I love you. I can’t say it because I’m afraid it’s a spoiler, but I really like you”, “Writer Inoue, let’s do one more version for Ryota Miyagi version. Let’s go further”, “Tell me the truth, you are not done making it. This isn’t the last movie, right?”, and so on.
On the other hand, the movie “The First Slam Dunk” depicts the dreams, passion, and unstoppable challenges of 5 basketball players of Shohoku High School who dream of winning the national championship.
