After working on Yuri!!! on ICE (2016; Production Assistant) and Kakegurui (2017; Setting Producer), Ando supported the production of BANANA FISH (2018) as the Setting Producer. As hundreds of people are involved in the creation of an animated series, establishing a fixed setting is integral to production. This setting becomes the common language with which animation studios standardize the visualization of characters, backgrounds, and props and maintain overall quality. As the setting producer, it was Ando's job to gather reference materials and to manage the thousands of settings so that the production runs smoothly and efficiently.
