I’m methodical. I’m the type to get uncomfortable with detailed things. For example, around this area, the soba sauce will fly, right, to the top of the table? I can’t allow that. I’ll wipe it like this, if I don’t have that I’ll use my sleeve… “OK, It’s clean!” Table over clothes — you can’t see this (his sleeve), right? But you can see this (the table). The place you can see is important.
I don’t wear clothes from anything but the right. I’ll put pants on starting with my right leg, shoes are also the right foot, socks are also the right. Somehow, if that’s not the case, it feels disgusting. If the bathtub is on the right, I’ll go in with my right foot but if it’s on the left, I won’t unreasonably try to go in with my right foot.
Well, in terms of methodical, I’m neurotic. For example, that table has a smear on it, that kind of bothers me. Although it’s not that I can’t accept it… it bugs me. Other than that, over there it’s kind of torn up, isn’t it? It bugs me… even though I think to myself ‘Don’t worry about it’. Things that don’t bug me don’t bug me at all. But things that do bug me, really bug me.
I notice basically everything around me. I catch everything. So when I am recording with multi cameras, I see the moving of the camera men, the moving of the lights and mic… [Eh…!! And you’re also acting?] Yes. [How wide is your view?] I guess I have a wider view. More than others…maybe. I also catch the sounds too.
