After Akira from Kemono Jihen first appeared in the Studio, he got a handful of Asks. I didn’t really have much good to offer in response to those Asks, though, which is why he hasn’t appeared again until now. When looking at this Ask for Elza, Akira came quickly to mind. I knew people were wanting to see more of him, and this seemed like the perfect way to do that. So I guess this Ask serves as an example of how, even if I don’t directly answer questions sent to a specific character, showing there’s interest there can still get them worked into other spots.
As for Elza, I don’t think her answer here is particularly surprising, so I don’t have much to say on it. I think she’s someone who values cuteness over sex or gender.
