Comment from Yoshihiko Inohara
I will be in charge of the narration of “Sumiko Gurashi” with Manami Honjo again this year. I am very honored. My love for Sumikko deepens every year, and I look for corners in the room daily. First, I look forward to meeting Mikko and others in the movie. Please enjoy it at the movie theater.

Comment from Manami Honjo
I was waiting for the news of the third movie! I am full of joy. I will call you again. I’m happy. This time, the stage is an old toy factory nestled in the forest. What kind of toy will come out, and what activity will my favorite polar bear play? I am now looking forward to the recording day. Please look forward to it, both small and big customers. Let’s all go to Sumikko World! See you at the cinema.

Comment from Director Hazmu Sakuta
Sumikko’s movie will be the third, and everyone will work together this time! Worried about how well you can do your job? But why is this so summery? The production team is working hard with the feeling of working with Sumikko. We will deliver fun work, so please come and see everyone’s hard work!

Comment from scriptwriter Takashi Tsunoda
I’m happy to be invited to Sumikko again. All the staff thought about the story again this time. Yokomizo, everyone at San-X, and everyone on the animation team, including Director Sakuta, came up with the idea that it was a strange story. Please enjoy the patchwork factory like a theme park with Sumikko.
