He said on Twitter as below:


"I think it is OK to reveal now. I made a brief appearance in the Saiki film. It was very difficult for a 30-year-old man to prepare for a role of a high school student, but it became a very good experience. I think I was able to grow one step as an actor. The film The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. is now showing amid enormous popular acclaim.(・∀・) "



Then the director of the film, Yuichi Fukuda responded on Twitter, "It was a wonderful acting."
