Sato Takeru, Jealous of Kamiki Ryunosuke & Sometani Shota's Closeness?
On the 8th, actors Sato Takeru, Kamiki Ryunosuke & Sometani Shota attended the premiere and stage greeting of the film "Bakuman." in Tokyo. During the event, Kamiki and Sometani had harmonious exchanges to which Sato accidentally became a one-act Tsukkomi*.
The film is adapted as a youth drama from the original popular manga of "DEATH NOTE" creators, Ohba Tsugumi & Obata Takeshi. The protagonists are two high school students who aims to become cartoonists and publish their work in Weekly Shounen Jump. In-charge of the art is Mashiro Moritaka(Sato) and in-charge of the story is Takagi Akito (Kamiki). On this day, Komatsu Nana, Sometani Shota, Kiritani Kenta, Arai Hirofumi, Minagawa Sarutoki, Kudo Kankuro, Yamada Takayuki, Lily Franky, Director One Hitoshi and the band Sakanaction, who is in-charge of the film's theme, also attended.
Sato commented "It is a work that I have confidence in. Working to draw manga seems plain so we have engaged a great battle that takes place inside the brain, this ground-breaking idea is presented through CGI so by all means, please come and see."
On the other hand Sometani, who has been recently referred to as 'Wakadoshiyori = a young person who acts like an old man', excitedly commented "The action and CG this time is amazing! We also challenged doing wire action. I did my best to "even move like this!"**
Right beside Sometani, Kamiki said "I see, I see." while nodding, "It is just like 'Kiseijuu' vs 'Rurouni Kenshin', right?" Somentani replied "I can't do anything without Migi" and the venue erupted with laughter. Sato, who probably became jealous from Kamiki & Sometani's flirting*** since they arrived, suddenly became a tsukkomi "These two have been like this since a while ago!"
While smiling, Director One took hold of a megaphone and said "Everyone was united in making the film. Without a doubt, it became a film that can be enjoyed". He also added "Just one thing, we had a hard time making these two look like high school students and virgins. We did not have to worry about Kamiki in particular, but we were more anxious on Takeru-kun."
Sato personally commented "Honestly, I'm worried. Do I look like a virgin? I would like everyone to check." Kamiki then said "Once you've seen it, everyone please spread "That's right". After which Yamada, who put on an exquisite tsukkomi, said "I don't see it, I don't see it" and stole everyone's laughter. ( Cinema Today Coverage by Sakata Masaki)
*A comedy duo consists of a boke and a tsukkomi. A 'tsukkomi' is the smart/straight man who butts in to correct the 'boke'who is the stupid/funny man.

Kamiki Ryunosuke, Sometani Shota is a "Gentleman" Two-Shot Fans React
On the 8th, actor Kamiki Ryunosuke posted a two-shot of him and actor Sometani Shota on his official twitter account. Once the valuable photo of the two has been uploaded, fans have flooded it with comments such as 'Their two shot is too amazing!' 'I can't--'* 'Isn't this too much??? God!!!'
On the day that they took the photo, Kamiki and Sometani had both attended the premiere and stage greeting of the film "Bakuman.", wherein they co-star. In his tweet, Kamiki said " Good evening! Tonight was the premiere and stage greeting of the film "Bakuman."! It was fun! And here with me is Sometani Shota-san. He is one of the actors that I truly admire. We took this photo together. He's a gentleman. Gentleman."
In the same tweet, words of thanks were sent to Kamiki at the end of the event. The love of fans exploded one after the other. 'Thank very much for the wonderful photo!! I love both Kamiki-kun & Sometani-kun!' 'Suddenly Kamiki-kun made me happy. You're awesome!' 'Your two-shot with Sometani-kun is very cute!
The original manga, "BAKUMAN", is from the same Ohba Tsugumi & Obata Takeshi combination that produced "DEATH NOTE". It is a youth movie that tells the story of two high school students, Mashiro Moritaka (Sato) who is in-charge of the art and Takagi Akito (Kamiki) who is in-charge of the story, aiming to be published in Weekly Shounen Jump. Niizuma Eiji (Sometani) is a genius cartoonist and their biggest rival. Cinema Today - Yuda Fumiyo)

The feeling is mutual since Shota has been interviewed saying this about Ryuu:
あなたの気になるPERSONは？— ゆうか (@12231003) August 30, 2015
The person you're interested in?
Kamiki Ryunosuke-kun. I admire him as an actor of the same generation, It's overwhelming how he can change his physiognomy to fit his roles."
It took longer than I thought it would. I'm sorry for the delay. I really wasn't feeling well and I opted to spend fewer hours in front of my laptop but I'm feeling better now. ^^ Bakuman & SDA digests will follow. Hopefully, I can finish it soon.
Thank you for reading! m(_ _)m
