Plot: On a hot day right before the summer vacation, all first-year male students of the second class from a junior high school disappear. Was it an accident? A group abduction? In fact, they were hiding in an abandoned factory near the river, and used it as a liberation area to rebel against the adults. The adults are in great confusion by the huge and unexpected operations cooperated by the female students; entangled with real abduction cases, a corrupted mayor election, and even involving parents and television reporters who are thrilled by the liberation broadcast and barricade. The comedy mystery progresses in a light tempo that doesn’t give the audience a chance to breathe until the brilliant end that is full of satire.
Some stuff I need to update the opening post. Got a date, Dec. 13.

He has a crush on Aya Chiyono, his neighbor and childhood friend. Kyōko Yoshine as Aya Chiyono, a polite girl with a good upbringing who happens to be Mamoru's childhood friend.

Her politician father has recently made the decision to move her to Tokyo against her will just one week ahead of her 17th birthday. Megumi Han as Kaori Yamazaki, a member of the track team who hates injustice most of all. She is always worried about Aya, her best friend. Her father runs a construction business. Tatsuhisa Suzuki as Sōma Ogata, an easy-going guy who is the center of Mamoru's class. He is popular with the girls. He joins Mamoru's planned birthday camping trip out of interest. Takeo Ōtsuka as Hiroto Honjō, a guy who was only dragged along to the camping trip by her childhood friend Saki, and is unenthusiastic for it. Haruka Michii as Saki Akutsu, a girl who lives in the moment and doesn't think too hard about most things. She wants to celebrate Aya's birthday and enthusiastically joins the birthday camping trip.

He is an illegal alien who has been wandering in search of his family. Takahiro Sakurai as Masahiko Honda, the secretary of Aya's father. While he carries out his duties nonchalantly, he is actually a sharp-minded man.

Taka: I see. A global release will benefit it. Gundam did pretty good. The only few franchises that are only popular in Japan but not popular in the west - Yokai Watch comes to mind.

Master Menos: F for Respects. DMX did all his work while suffering from a drug addiction, and I almost never knew until a point. I hope his next life treats him far better.
