“For some titles, we were only hired for the first season. At that time, my management skills were not as good as now, so I couldn’t add the following seasons to the schedule immediately because I already had other series pending financing. And of course, the fans and publishers wanted the new seasons to come out as soon as possible, which led to them being animated by another studio,” Wada said.
