In the latest chapter, Hajime sees a lot of successful shots focusing on Nagisa, but she freezes up, feeling a personal connection to the scene that might be too intense.

RECAP: Tenmaku Cinema Chapter 17 Spoilers and What to Expect in Chapter 18

Hajime has had way too many encouraging developments during his development on “The Shore” and it looks like the other shoe is about to drop. There is a callback to when her mother is mentioned in previous chapters, indicating deep personal tension that is about to reach a boiling point. Hinaki appears to get sudden performance anxiety.

It appears that even the thought of Kurai’s mother, when thinking about Nagisa’s mother, is enough to trigger her, causing the young veteran actress to stop in her tracks. This is entirely speculation at this point, but it appears the scene is hitting too close to home. Tenmaku is not worried about this, however, and sees it as an opportunity for Hajime to improvise the scene and take true ownership of the script and his film. We’ll know more once this chapter releases!
