Thomas Romain is a French animator working and living in Japan, having worked on several series such as Ōban Star-racers and Space Dandy.
As a fantastic project Romain takes his son’s character designs and revamps them with his amazing skillset.
A really brilliant and uplifting series that I encourage you all to have a look at.
