Features of the work

The work is basicallycomedyHe specializes in creating works with new concepts that have never existed before.
While creating a story with thorough reasoning, the attractive portraits are unrivaled by other writers.
There are many heart-warming human hymns with wit and humorous productions, and there are few explicit social satires, grotesque depictions, and harsh lines.
There are many stories with the framework of "a group works together to overcome difficulties" and "plays someone different from the original one due to the urgent circumstances".
I'm not good at romance because "I don't like my outlook on romance."
American playwrightNeil Simon The name of the troupe is also derived from Simon's masterpiece "Sunshine Boys".
Of the movie directorBilly WilderIn 94, Wilder's last year (at the age of 2001), he became a listener himself and interviewed Wilder.[22].
I aimed to be a screenwriter Sayaka Hayasakaof"Excuse me], [WorldlyI was impressed by the fact that I got those scenarios from an acquaintance and wanted to write something like this, and one day I said that ("Excuse me], [Worldly』) He says he wants to write something.AlsoIchikawa MoriichiThe drama of the work "Golden day day], [You're not alone], [Relatives, Etc., and the performers of each work, Koshiro Matsumoto,Toshiyuki Nishida, Koji Yakusho is also appointed for his own work.
He hates the performance of his work in a way that he cannot be involved in, and does not give permission to the theater club of the school or groups that cannot participate in the revision of the production and script.The main reason is that all the scripts are written as "remarks" for the actors who play each role (after deciding the actor first, write the script while imagining that actor).[23][24]..For this reason, if there is a change of actors in the replay, the script will be revised according to the image of the new actors, regardless of whether or not they are directing themselves.On the other hand, Nishimura, who had a strong image of the third supporting character for a while after the phantom performance of "Furuhata Ninzaburo", Mitani addressed other scripts such as the serious role and enemy role that Nishimura is good at in most of the works. Casting that sets it apart from the house.
For example,Lol college』OriginallyYuji Miyakeと5th Bando YasosukeIt is a radio drama written for, but later with Masahiko NishimuraYoshimasa KondoWhen it was staged with the appearance ofKoji YakushoとInagaki GoroWhenever it was made into a movie with the appearance of, the script itself was rewritten from scratch.[25].
An actor
The actors who appear in Mitani's work and their production team are popularMitani groupThere is a remarkable tendency to appoint favorite actors, reliable actors, and actors who have influenced themselves many times, starting with Nishimura, who has been an ally since the troupe era.Kazuyuki Aijima,Kajiwara,Takashi Kobayashi,Kenji Anan,Masahiro Komoto,Toshito Ito,Miyaji MasakoAppointedNonaka IsaoAnd Yoshimasa Kondo, who are not members of the group, are also regularly appointed.Sato B product,Michiko Ameku,Minoru SawatariSuch asTheater Tokyo Vaudville ShowMember,Akira ShiraiAre also regular performers).In some cases, he may be asked to appear because he has appeared in works that impressed him in the past, such as Koshiro and the government office.In addition, it should be notedToshiyuki Nishida,Hiroshi Sato,Shingo Katori,Shiro Ito,Shunji Fujimura,Yoneko Matsukane,Yasuyasu Umeno,Inoue Jun,Michiko Shimizu,Masachika Ichimura,Toshiaki Karasawa,Kyoka Suzuki[26],Uchino Seiyo,Oizumi HiroshiEtc. were repeatedly appointed to the work while already having a certain career, and brought out a new charm.Many actors were in the limelight because of their good performance in Mitani's work (Keiko Toda,Naoki Tanaka,Fumyo Kohinata,Sakai,Yamamoto Koji,Tomohiko Imai,Eisuke Shinoi,Kazuyuki Asano,Takehiko Ono,Koichi Yamadera,Keiko Horiuchi,Yoshida sheep,Akiko Yagi,Takeo Nakahara,Satomi Nagano,Rie MinemuraSuch).
In the movie directed by Mitani, many big actors appear at the end (so-called Tome) with the credit of the ending cast.Perhaps because of that, the director's first film, "Radio timeAnd the sixth work "Kiyosu ConferenceIn the end credits of "", the order in which the cast names are displayed is "aiueo order (alphabetical order)", and the third work "THE Uchoten HotelAnd the sixth work "The Magic Hour, The fifth work "Nice money bondage, The fifth work "I don't remember!』In" order of appearance "[27].
As a film director
"Since I started shooting movies, when my work is about to be released, I started to appear on TV as part of my promotional activities, and now it's commonplace for people involved in movies to appear on TV for promotion. Was still rare at the time. I vowed to do anything that could contribute to the promotion. It's not a gorgeous type on the screen just because it looks like an actor. I don't look good and I don't really care about talking. After that, I had to hit it with my body. I was pushed into the pool and danced with full-body tights. At one point, I was stuffed with tube wasabi in my nose during the planning of the program (it was also fun). I watched it on the air. I received an email from Keiko Toda saying that it was "painful".From that point on, I began to wonder if this was all right, and since then I have refrained from appearing on TV. "[28].
