We’ve heard Yoko Taro’s “Very cute! I believe she’ll sell well!” comment about all the fairy tale girls from SINoALICE so far, but he actually has a little more to say for Little Mermaid… because he kind of got told off.
Here’s a look at the latest character design on the upcoming smartphone game’s official Twitter account, which was shared to commemorate its 300,000 milestone for pre-registrations:
The Little Mermaid (CV: Mamiko Noto)
Jino: (Huh? There isn’t a description on her feet, and I haven’t drawn the tail fin either… all right! Let’s just draw them both, just in case!)
Yoko Taro: I’ve been commenting my honest feelings of “Very cute! I believe she’ll sell well!” about all the designs we’ve presented up until now, but someone pointed out that “Yoko Taro is really slacking it with his comments.” So this time, please allow me to change the comment to: “If we’re talking cute or not cute, then she’s very cute! If you’re wondering whether she’ll sell well or not sell well, I think she’ll sell well!! But even if she does sell well there won’t be any money in it for me or Jino-san, and I can’t sleep at night thinking about the wonderful people at Pokelabo (developers) or Square Enix pocketing the money!”
