<The following are the full version of comments that were received>
[Original author: Shirohira Kyo]
As I have been working on the original manga for a long time, it is still a wonder for me that a novel “that I had decided to write long lines and elaborate mysteries in as I hadn’t written a novel for a long time and would definitely not be suitable for a comic” became a comic, and then became an anime.
I would be happy if you could judge after watching it whether my sense is strange or or whether the skills of those who put such novels into visualization are uncommon or not.
[Manga: Katase Chashiba]
When comicalizing the original novel, it was a really mysterious and interesting experience for me to imagine that I put into picture form parts of the novel that I had never dreamed of when I was reading it.
I’m really looking forward to being able to see the new elements come together from combining the motion of video, voice and sound by becoming an anime!
