In crafting the Stage covers, I aimed for a distinct departure from their earlier versions pre-revision. My vision was to craft something that truly captured attention, seamlessly blending the vibrant color palettes reminiscent of the 90s with the bold text presentation often seen on JRPG covers. After a few iterations, Stage 01's cover emerged, and I felt a surge of excitement. While there was an option with a full-color design, I believed it didn't align with the new aesthetic I envisioned. I was committed to maintaining the manga's stylized black monochromatic feel, punctuated by strategic bursts of color.
