Oyamada Shou, the series producer of “Mana” series
When I got the offer for anime adaptation, I was not even at the step of proposing HD Remaster Edition of “Legend of Mana”.
I participated in the meeting to just hear about the plan, but I received passionate words and thoughts from Mr. Yahata from Warner Brothers Japan, that “I really want to create anime with LOM”. His love is heavy.
Ah, I then have to make game as soon as possible to respond to his passion…and HD Remaster Edition was produced for this reason, maybe.
LOM fans, please relax.
The people involved in this project are the adults, who are still in love with LOM from back then.
