Questions:
Is there a limit where Linne will be reincarnated. Is she in contact with the parents of her body?

Questions:
There's this half-naked girl mentioned in Chronicle. What kind of half-nakedness is Yoshihara's preference

A: In-Birth won't be notices by regular people, so many use clothes that they like. Free outdoor looks that are either visually appealing or functional for battles. It's half-naked from Wald's perspective, meaning that pretty much any modern girl could gets the same comment.

Yoshihara's preferences: As long as a certain amount of skin is visible, it qualifies as half-naked. For example, bottom of the neck​, back, waist and thighs are exposed.

It's mentioned that abilities fade with time. Are there any other conditions? Is it possible to regain after losing them once?
A: Taking age without using powers will eventually lead to vanishment of abilities. On the other hand, Wald has lives for years and used constantly his powers, which is why he still has them.

There is no way to regain the EXS abilities after they have naturally vanished. Exist and Void vanish from the In-Birth's body, returning the it to a nearly "human-like" state.

Hyde's parent are working abroad. Where? UNI is similar to modern age. What is the state of outer nations?
A: Parents are going from a country to another. German where Licht Kreis is stationed is one of the regions with increased Hollow Night activity. But as Voids appear invisible to normal people, the increased activity hasn't really raised a lot of attention from regular people. There simply are areas with a lot of mysterious disappearances.

Questions:
What kind of person is Joker? He is mentioned to be as powerful as Enkidu and Uzuki, but there is literally no other info.

A: All info about Joker is fake created for a single joke. See ARCADIA magazine No.166 for more info. It's not impossible for him to become playable, but he's definitely not high on the priority list.

Pachelbel is carried in a case during the Chronicle Mode. What does it actually weight?
A: One weights 5kg, a two of them total for 10 kg. Pachelbel can be fold into a smaller form. They fit into a case similar to a kendo equipment.

I got interested in this game thanks to BBTAG. I'd like to play Linne in this game, but my friends keep telling that the game system is so complex that it's not worth the trouble. Could explain what is great about UNI?
A: It is definitely true. Pixel graphics are one of the greatest thing in UNI, not many makers do that anymore. Pixel graphics look great in motion, so please check them out. Musics are also very famous of being great. Well, you can probably experience those in BBTAG, but the character select in UNI is one of the most famous songs and only in UNI. The game is focused on ground combat and has almost no aerial guard. It is greatly valued by diehard fans. GRD system is also special to the game. Check out Chronicle Mode to see Linne going to school and enjoying school meals. That definitely isn't in BBTAG.

Questions:
What kind of weapons did Seth use before obtaining the Eliminator?

A: He used to wield a similar kind of short blades. They were daggers specifically made for fighting against the Void.

How is Wagner's full name supposed to be read?
A: It is as it was written in the birthday picture. "Miyashiro Erika Wagner". Wagner doesn't have a 'middle name' so to speak, so this order is the only correct one for her full name.

I love how pretty the pixel graphics in UNI are. How are they made? How long does a one character usually take to make?
A: The process of making the pixel graphics moves in three stages.
Draft → Detailing → Cleaning
Draft is really rough sketch. Detailing takes most of the time to make the sketch actually look like a person. Cleaning adds final details and fixes some missing pixels. The time it takes to create a character differs depending how difficult the character is, like if the character has clothes that have a lot of details.

For example, Orie's clothes are really complex as the Licht Kreis emblem in her clothes move in the wind along with her skirt. Not to mention, she also has those metallic jinglings hanging from her skirt. They need to move along with Orie's actions and there was a huge number of those jinglings. Other artists drew Orie's sprites, and then we had one person to specifically add those jinglings into the finished sprites.

If we try really hard, we can make a character in about half a year. Usually it takes from 7 to 9 months. Some difficult character have taken even a full year.

Questions:
What kind of person is Yoshihara-sensei? He almost never makes public appearances and there's barely any info about him.What's his age? Where does he live? Why was he chosen as the designer? What's the size of his shoe? What is his fetish?

A: Thanks for your message. These comments always cheer me on.
Age: Pretty much an old man
Where: I walk to work
Why: Because the game is based on my ideas
Shoe: 23,5 (= 6 ½ US | 38 EU)
Fetish: First to come in mind are legs. I guess knit sweaters and tights look nice. I prefer there to be some kind of clothes, and thus am not really interested in exposed skin or bare legs.

Thanks for your hand work at EVO. If it's not too much to ask, can you tell about your trip to Las Vegas.
A: Players are quite friendly as everyone likes the game they are playing. Mika-chan seemed to be really popular with the foreign players. Japanese players were talking a lot about how quick the overseas players were. Overheads were blocked and throws teched, just how to deal with them in a match. They were practicing all the time. They took over the food court and there was like 20~30 people battling all the time. We were pretty worried they were going to get yelled at, but it seemed to be totally fine. Things sure are different overseas.

What kind of ice cream does Londrekia like?
A: He prefers to have mint in his ice cream, for example mint chocolate.
