|Lowlife Love ( Gesu no ai ): Tetsuo (Kiyohiko Shibukawa) is a lowlife. A film director with a small indie hit many years back, yet he has never gotten any further as he refuses to
go against his 'artistic integrity'. He's a real loser. Despite being in his late 30s, he still lives with his mother and sister, borrowing money off them and scrounging from all he
comes in contact with. This includes his best friend Mamoru (Yoshihiko Hosoda), who makes porn films with him for dodgy characters in order to make money, as well as the
film actors' school they've setup to exploit their students as well as for him to sleep with wannabe actresses. He's a real jerk.
