Atsushi also shared her thoughts, flattered she was involved with a series she was a fan of, but dedicated to working hard.
“To be honest, I’m still incredible to be involved in the new work of the Record of Lodoss War.
I would be surprised if I told myself when I was a reader years ago.
Although there is pressure, I will do my best to convey the charm of Mizuno’s original work even with a full manga!”
