I think it is very rare to be able to be involved in such a long-lasting work.
Therefore, we would like to think about what we can do and do it well.

A “Free!”and OLDCODEX collaboration is impressive and I feel a strong attachment to each piece.
Again, I would like to remember the time of the beginning and go on creating.
