The romantic team up of Suda Masaki and Tsuchiya Tao is a surprising casting choice for My Little Monster (Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun).
I’m not surprised that the film partners for this LA chose Tsuchiya Tao. The big surprise is that we often watch Sudacchi play weird, dark, even disturbing characters. So, the transition can be fascinating. A role reversal for Tsuchiya appeals to me since I want Tao to play dark, even seductive types in the tradition of her Suzuki Sensei character. I also welcome Suda in Yamazaki Kento’s playing field that’s why this role would showcase a different Suddachi.
