At the premiere night, Tanaka reveals that she used to consider marriage as an escape route when she was in her late 20s. She is turning 35 years old this year and also single, but she has not decided on how to handle it until she finds a good person. Tanaka advises the audience that marriage should be a choice that anyone is free to make despite the pressures around them.

Will I Be Single Forever? will be shown in theaters in Japan on November 19, 2021.
