If you are clicking on this post and wondering, "who is Naoya Ando?" - this wonderful article post from SakugaBlog describes who he is. Here is a quick tl;dr though:
- Name: Naoya Ando (安藤尚也)
- Roles: Episode director, storyboarder, misc. direction (dance/concert scenes etc.), hedgehog dad
- Social media: Twitter
- Notable Works as Staff: Love Live (S1 & S2), Valvrave the Liberator, Aikatsu (S4), Pretty Paradise, Idol Time PriPara, Love Live Sunshine (S1 & S2), Aikatsu Stars (S1 & S2)
Really, do read the article though. It's a great read, especially since it goes really in-depth on some of the most important scenes (especially in Episode 96 ) in AiStars & Ando's influence in those scenes. It's unknown if he'll be sticking around for AiFure, but it is likely he will.
