And Yuki Saito, known for his directorial works for the Japanese gay drama Ossan's Love, serves as director. He says, "This is a story of a family's rebirth like a roller coaster, with energetic characters led by Kanta Sato-kun and Masaya Kato-san running wild, and a mother's deep love bringing tears to the eyes. I hope you will get on the boat for 'Gunkan Shonen' and experience it on the screen."
