Short to show what happened to "shadow star" of Tamako Market afterwards

The official website for the Tamako Love Story movie announced on Saturday that the movie will be screened with the short "Minami no Shima no Dera-chan" (Dera-chan of the Southern Islands). The short will reveal what happened to Dera Mochimazzui, the "shadow star(?) of the Tamako Market television series."

The story will follow Dera (Takumi Yamazaki) after he returns to the southern islands from the Usagiyama Shopping District, and will depict his gentle slapstick daily life with "Prince" (Hiro Shimono) and Choi (Yuri Yamaoka).
