『世界に告げよ』/もふもふもっふる
Commentary
The sculptor who the story revolves around works well with the settings of the game system, becoming a wonderful focal point.
The point of view reversal at the end was interesting.
Perhaps this character carved statues of the three LoM main characters? It's fun to leave some room for imagination.

『ドミナの町のケーキ屋さん』/tenku
Commentary
It's easy to vividly imagine the tranquil life in the Hometown of Domina, and the interactions among the residents.
The story ties in with the story of Legend of Mana, and ending with Li'l Cactus's Diary felt appropriate and natural.
Envisioning the lives of the characters after the end of the main story helped bring the characters into clearer focus for me, and made me like Legend of Mana even more. Thanks for a beautiful story.
