" He talked about what he gained from the new challenge.

More than that, it's more valuable than receiving an award because it's a place where you can experience the wonderfulness and breadth of the movies you're involved in. "

The awards such as Palm Doll, the highest award, will be announced on the 28th of local time and from 3:30 am on the 29th of Japan time.
