Introducing a lot of content sent by Crypton Future Media Co., Ltd.! ! There may be new information about Piapro Characters...?
(I recommend to read all the 3-pages interview, is very nice!)――Kikuo-san, since this is a great opportunity, is there anything you would like to ask Sasaki-san?
Kikuo: Is there something going on with Mr. Sasaki or Crypton regarding the Hatsune Miku character? Because I think it's amazing that Hatsune Miku's light never goes out.
Sasaki: As a company as a whole, when we receive an interesting proposal from the outside, we often say, "Let's try it." As for my movements, whether it's "Hatsune Miku -Project DIVA-" or "Proseca (Project Sekai Colorful Stage! feat. Hatsune Miku)", I'm trying to adjust the balance to remove obstacles to the realization of a new project when it's launched. Most of the time I'm involved as a role, and even now I'm having a hard time coordinating a big project before the information is lifted (bitter smile). However, through such difficult projects and Hatsune Miku, I have also been able to face the industry and the world and study.
Kikuo: I really feel that it's precisely because Crypton is making these adjustments one by one that people like me are supported. I really appreciate it.
Sasaki: No, no, we are more grateful. After all, Hatsune Miku is supported by the creativity of the creators and is allowed to sing. There are many conflicts in doing business using such Hatsune Miku, but it's up to us to keep fighting, and we're in a position where we can explore possibilities, so it's something we should continue to face. Talking to Kikuo made me realize this again. We also want to gain more experience and be able to ask creators like Kikuo for meaningful projects.
Kikuo: By all means. I hope to work with you in the future!

it was retweeted by Wataru Sasaki, so.. I think yes, it was the big project previously teased. I'm not into Pokemon, but I know that especially in Japan the Pokemon series is big, very big. It seems this is a collaboration project about different types of illustrations, songs and music videos, and is not still clear if they plan to use those songs and illustrations for some goods (very likely, like it happened with the Digimon collaboration), or they might extend the collaboration in some games and tv anime episodes. More details will be shared in the next weeks ^^Wait is this the big announcement wat talked about? Cause if so, idk how to feel. I mean I do like pokemon so that's very lovely but idk... I expected something a bit more exciting? It's still nice but I can't help but feel just a tiny bit dissapointed. It's like if someone promises you five star catering at a party but the catering turns out to be an otherwise really nice mini donut stall. I do like mini donuts so like I take it but I can't help but feel a little bit scammed y'know. (Of course I could be wrong and the big announcement could turn out to be something else entirely)
