Today marks the 20th anniversary of the release of Klonoa: Door to Phantomile in Japan!
Looking back, the mid-2010s have been a truly special time for our little cabbit, more people know about Klonoa now than ever before thanks to the dedication of our wonderful and talented fandom
it's thanks to us fans that Klonoa is getting his own movie! Give yourselves a pat on the back, you've helped turn our passionate cult following into something even better and put Klonoa back in the spotlight!
And now, a word from the man behind the cat, Hideo Yoshizawa
(taken from klonoa-at-blog on Tumblr)
"Congratulation! Klonoa 20th anniversary! ! Thank you! I am Yoshizawa! Thank you for always reading Klonoa Chronicle. Today is the twentieth year since Klonoa entered the world (in Japan).
I want to say 'Thank you!'
! To the fans who have supported Klonoa so far, to the staff who worked for the production staff who paid plenty of love to create Klonoa, to the staff who supported sales and marketing to bring it to the world.
Klonoa has brought me many experiences over the last two decades. In addition, thanks to Klonoa I was able to meet various people. They are all my precious wealth.
And I thought that there was nothing in recent years. However, the topic of a certain animation movie came down. Just now, the project members of Japan and the United States are working together in intensive production. Everyone, look forward to it!
The trip with Klonoa seems to continue still. Where will Klonoa take us from now? Let’s enjoy your trip with Klonoa together." - December 11, 2017, Yoshizawa Hideo
