Dai Sato （佐藤大）– Anime scenario writer
Dai Sato started as a runner at several of Tokyo's leading animation studios and TV stations before establishing a name for himself as a TV script-writer. He has collaborated with some of Japan's best-known anime writers, and used this experience in game development projects and interactive club events.
