【Nagai Yukiharu, the producer】
The greatest work in Showa era will come back to Reiwa era.
The anime has been repeatedly aired since 50 years ago, and I believe everyone in Japan knows “The Genie Family”. It will take in differences between Showa and Reiwa, and I will make it enjoyable to all generations from the grandparents to the grandchildren by sharing how things were like in the period they lived.
