Comments from Dr. Kaori Hashimoto arrived
A comment has been received from Mr. Katori Hashimoto, the creator of this work.
■ Comment by Mr. Katori Hashimoto (Original Mama) The
original is a web manga that was released on a personal site, and it was a little strange way to be published in France before Japan, so it was said that it was animated by Internet distribution I also thought, "I see, it looks like that." I'm very honored and afraid that the famous front-line professionals have animated with high technology. The original creator has hardly touched the contents of the anime so as not to bother them. I hope you can enjoy the deep world with the eyes of the reader who read the manga and the people who will watch the animation in the future!

Comments arrive from the main cast
Comments have been received from the main casts, Yoshimasa Hosoya, Kana Hanazawa, and Natsuki Hanae.
■ Yoshimasa Hosoya's comment When
I heard that the distribution time for this work was decided, I finally said, "At last. I can send this work out to the world at last], but I have been waiting for it too much. Let's not believe it until after it is actually distributed ”, and he has a mixed feeling of skepticism (laughs). It is a work that took a lot of time even during the dubbing period alone. Every time I went to the scene, I felt a lot of affection for this work while talking with the staff in various ways. I am really happy to be involved in such a work. Is it still really delivered? I can't wipe out my doubts (laughs), but the fact that comments are made public in this way will probably be distributed (laughs). I'm really happy. About three years ago I heard the results of the audition. Anyway, it was so long (laughs). It was really too long (laughs). Although it was a longer production period, I was in charge of post-recording and said, "After three years, finally deliver! I feel so dramatic alone (laughs), and above all, director Koichi Chiaki, "I'm really congratulations."
■ Kana Hanazawa's comment
Love created in a fierce battle is warm and painful, and makes you feel like you have to see the end. I read the original, and as I progressed, Iri-chan's impression changed rapidly, so I was looking forward to seeing how to play. And personally, I was very happy to be able to work with Koichi Chiaki, the director who helped me with the voice actor's debut!
■ Natsuki Hanae's comment In
a world where humans become insects, humans resist, hate against insects and fight with each other. I played the mysterious man Achat. I'm often worried about why he aims for humans and what happened in the past, but I was very impressed not only with the work but also with the thoughts of Achat. Look forward to the delivery!
Theme song also decided

Opening theme "Be ZERO"
Composition: TOC, Akira Kurihara (Jazzin'park), Shingo Kubota (Jazzin'park)
Arrangement: Akira Kurihara (Jazzin'park), Shingo Kubota (Jazzin'park)
■ Ending Theme "The Timid Wolf"
Composition: TOC, DJ KATSU
Sound Produce 3rd Productions
Comments have also arrived from "Hilcrhyme".
■ "Hilcrhyme" comment (original mom)
"Be ZERO" was just created with the message "Be strong." You will be evil because of what you cannot gain unless you lose, hope that you cannot write without knowing despair, and justice you want to pierce. The hero who goes over the struggle born there is drawn in the song. The story "Cagaster in a cage" had a lot in common with Hilcrhyme's path. I think that a song that was close to the work was created. Please enjoy this song with animation.
Also released PV!
In addition, a PV that allows you to listen to the character voice and the opening theme "Be ZERO" was also released.
