The film will star Yuya Endo (Ryoma in The Prince of Tennis musical), Yuuichi Nakamura, Hiroki Suzuki (Syuuichiro in The Prince of Tennis musical and film), Noriko Nakagoshi, Miho Nakai, Akira Emoto, Yoichi Nukumizu, and Taizo Harada. Shinsuke Ono (Ping Pong assistant director) will be shooting the film between March 20 and the end of April.
