Original manga author Koyama Aiko's comment
Many must be living a life so different since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic. My workplace has also adopted remote work and I am working at my desk. My heart is full when I think that the manga characters on paper, that were created merely on my small desk, will be made into anime characters that will speak and move, through the talent of so many people and will appear on TV in homes around the world. I too am looking forward to seeing them from my home.
