It was still serialized
I watched cartoon Pokemon when I was in elementary school.
I never thought it was still going on.
Pippi, which was generally considered cute
Made the opposite image
Isn’t the achievement of this work great?
Looking at the image,
I think the touch of the work has changed slightly.
The history of 23 years is amazing.
Since Pokemon was released
That means that many years have passed.
