decadence, an interesting summer anime that can be seen on VVVVID, recently closed at halftime and is preparing to enter the heart of its first season. Yuzuru Tachikawa, Writer and director of the series, decided to take part in an AMA (Ask Me Anything) organized by Funimationand answered the most interesting questions from fans.

Talking about the sensational twist on Episode 2, Tachikawa said: "Creating an anime from scratch is never easy, and in this case, given the uniqueness of the anime, there were frequent misunderstandings during production, especially regarding the work of the animators. The cyborg design is very "delicate" and given what audiences are used to in mainstream anime, I feared it would not be received positively. As for the story, I was pretty sure the twist would be appreciated. It was the design that worried me".

Instead, the director said he was inspired by one of Disney's great masterpieces: "As for the act We mentioned Raplh Wreck-It many times in our meetings. We loved that so many characters came together to face a bigger threat. So I would say we can define this film as the starting point for our story. However, the design also inspired us from a film for one of the characters: Kaburagi. After the first sign, the character designer introduced me to something similar to Doc from Back to the Future, but it wasn't exactly what I wanted. However, revising this model brought us to today's Kaburagi".

The author also talked about the problems created by Covid-19, his favorite scenes in the anime, the relationship between Kaburagi and Natsume, and the original idea, which should simply be the story of a girl born into a giant. Landfill with a great passion for building technological devices.
