Regarding the new drama with Hoshino
Translation of Hoshino's Instagram post by togaochi on Tumblr "I think, the reader, who buys the work should enjoy it however they want. Because I think in the moment they receive the work, it becomes theirs. If they can enjoy what I drew, I am very happy.
However, just because the creator thinks “If I do the character like this, the customer will be happy”, “If I drew the character like this it will sell”, ”because for a picture like this there is demand” and changes the work and the character and releases it, this mustn’t be done by any means.
I think, that also the reader surely cannot wish for such a work.
I believed, the current animation staff, being on the side of the creator, would have the same opinion.
Especially, that the official side did such a thing is particularly regrettable
It is only one picture but it made me very sad. And Kanda as well."
