When Chizuru enquires about the budgeting for the production, Kazuya goes into very detailed research that he has done and talks about every aspect including the amount of money it will take.

However, he keeps on getting distracted by Mizuhara who looks surprisingly attractive to him. Kazuya feels that he has never felt so attracted to her in the past. Interestingly, he also mentioned in the budget that he will pay Mizuhara an acting fee. When Chizuru points out that she does not want it since the movie is being made for her, Kazuya disagrees and goes on to tell her that he made an offer to her as an actress so it will be wrong if he does not pay her.

In order to make the crowdfunding page more attractive to potential donors, Kazuya suggests that they talk about Mizuhara and her grandmother on the project page.
