Artist Spotlight
Kei Nanameda

Previous Projects
“My representative work includes the Mary Skelter Series, Death end re;Quest, and Trillion.”

When did you start working in the game industry?
“I've been in the game industry for 13 years, but I started to do illustration work as Kei Nanameda about 9 years ago.”

Who is your favourite character in Dragon Star Varnir and why?
“I like Karikaro the most. I'm a little attached to her since I did design her, but I also just like her character. She can be tough and stoic but we also see these tender and ditzy moments about her throughout the game. That duality is adorable. I also love the fact that she likes to cook.”

If you were a witch in Varneria, what type of power would you have and why?
“I want to fly! It must feel so liberating to just fly about the sky. Life would be easier if we could just get around using flight, wouldn't it?”

Katsuyuki Hirano

Previous Projects
Agarest War Series, Genkai Tokki Series

When did you start working in the game industry?
“From around the year 2000.”

Who is your favorite character in Dragon Star Varnir and why?
“Zephy. I'm actually fond of the typical protagonist characters. Zephy's interactions with the heroines is something I particularly enjoy. I haven't had much of an opportunity to portray cool male characters lately, and I think I want to design more characters like him.”

If you were a witch in Varneria, what type of power would you have and why?
“Maybe this is obvious, but I'd want to use recovery magic on myself so I never get tired. Also, if I was able to use a Devour skill, I'd use it on someone who's really good at drawing.”
