The cast greeted the audience after the screening of a special edition of episodes 1 and 2.

The cast first talked about how excited they were over the special edition which was showed on screen.
At the characters introduction segment, Uemura called his character Minato as “someone with a charming forehead”. Ichikawa described Seiya as “someone who seems gentle and soft at first sight but gets very fixated about Minato”. Suzuki defined Ryohei as “someone who’s as bright as the sun and extremely affectionate, like a puppy”. Yano detailed Nanase as “someone who seems shallow, but one who can access situations with a calm mind”.
A surprise greeting video of Kaito Ishikawa, the voice of Kaito Onogi, was then shown at the event. The cast described Ishikawa as a leader who constantly motivates them during recording sessions. The cast also read a surprise letter from the Director, Takuya Yamamura.
