‘I crazily admired Jotaro Kujo since I was a junior-high school boy’
Iseya says that he was a fan of JoJo even before he was casted, and commented that ‘I crazily admired Jotaro Kujo since I was a junior-high school boy.’ Furthermore, he talked about the hardship that ‘characteristic of Jotaro and Yūsuke Iseya is completely different and it was hard to fill that gap.’ However, he commented ‘I enjoyed and got stimulated by filming, because I could feel so many ideas by director Miike.’
Moreover, he showed his confidence and told that filming at Sitges, Spain was necessary for the movie, by commenting that ‘I could perform with fresh feeling at Spain. I’m expecting that JoJo’s costume matches with the town.’
