Original Author: Zappon's Comments
I never thought the day would come when I'd be able to write an author's comment on the anime adaptation! From the time it was decided to make into an anime until today, I was desperately trying to hold back my desire to report "The anime adaptation has been decided" on Twitter
. That's no longer the case. The anime adaptation has been decided !!!!!!!!! I've been allowed to participate in weekly script meetings for anime production, and I've been helping with the scenario to a small degree. I was so happy when the script became a storyboard that I read it over and over again. I've been blessed with a wonderful staff and I can't wait to see the sensibilities of the anime. I also wrote a supplementary story "Shin no Nakama Episode 0" which will be the prologue to the anime in conjunction with today's announcement. I think you'll enjoy the anime even more if you read this episode 0 before it airs, so I'd be happy if you could check it out too! Thanks to your support, the "Shin no Nakama" series is expanding into novels, manga, anime, and games, so please continue to support us!
Original Illustrator: Yasumo's Comment
Congratulations on the animation! I'm looking forward to seeing how Gideon, Rit, and the others move and talk in the anime with the addition of various expressions and direction that couldn't be expressed in the illustrations. Thank you for your continued support!
Comicization: Ikeno Masahiro's Comment
Congratulations to Zappon on the anime adaptation of "Shin no Nakama"! I feel very fortunate to have been able to work on this series. I, too, can't wait to see Rit, Red and the rest of them move on screen! I'll do my best to keep up with the comics!
