Then, it may be challenging to have dreams and hopes, and it may feel meaningless. But if we don’t talk about them now, there will never be a future.
That feeling is expressed in the theme song “Never.” Say Never”. Through animation, I hope to make as many people as possible smile with the help of Hiro Mashima, the author of the original work, who once again asked me to be a new partner for EDENS ZERO as everyone involved. I will do my best to receive it. Thank you for being so supportive.”
