Inaba gave a statement about his upcoming role:
“Since the movie was announced, I felt a lot of pressure. But I challenged those feelings, and I changed my view to be more enthusiastic about this third movie in the series. As I was surrounded by people who were transforming in this series, I think everyone felt nervous. Please watch the new Maxxman, Hiro Max, as I solve these new incidents. Please see it at the theater.”
The film is scheduled to be screened at the Okinawa International Film Festival on April 20-23, 2017.
