Momotaro Dentetsu: Showa, Heisei, Reiwa mo Teiban! assistant director Shoji Masuda also tweeted on November 20: “First day sales were announced in our regular Momotaro Dentetsu meeting yesterday and we got excited like ‘yeaaahhh!’—a huge difference from the ‘awwww….’ when we heard the launch party would be held at a later date due to current events. After the meeting [Momotaro Dentetsu creator Akira] Sakuma was interviewed by Famitsu. It should be published late next month.”
昨日、桃鉄の定例会議で、初日の目玉が飛び出るような売り上げ本数が発表されたときの「うおおお！」と、「時節柄、打ち上げは延期ということで」と聞いたときの「ぅぁぁ・・・」のギャップはすごかった。会議のあとでさくまさんとファミ通からインタビューを受けました。掲載は来月の下旬 #令和桃鉄— 桝田省治 (@ShojiMasuda) November 20, 2020
