Yoshimasa Hosoya
The design of Akatsuki’s crew cut and camouflage uniform made me feel nostalgic for myself, who watched various movies at a Western-style theatre on TV when I was little.

I think I felt the image of the ancestors who were dubbed Western movies at that time while dubbing.

I think that the setting of being the captain of the mercenary unit and having the nickname of “Returning Man” makes the story of Akatsuki more impressive, and I feel that the character of Akatsuki is attractive.
