The author howahowa shiina shared a message after the announcement:

  • «When I heard that they were going to do the anime adaptation, I thought it was a joke. I was waiting for my novels to be converted into anime, but I never thought that would actually happen. I’m even touched by the fact that the characters I’ve created are animated. I hope you too will enjoy the heartwarming adventures of Earth and her friends.».
