Quote from creator and showrunner Dice Tsutsumi:
“The story of a brave girl caught between two worlds divided is, at its core, not only a very personal story for me, but one that’s become personal for everyone involved including our absolute dream cast. Every one of these incredible talents from our dream list accepted with such passion and empathy for the story, and collaborating with them has been equally humbling and inspiring.
They’ve given souls to our characters and unparalleled performances for our animators.”
