The following are answers to the panels'
Q & A-

Answer: (by Kazuya Tsurumaki) "We believed it would be very difficult to make a sequel since the anime was all wrapped up.

Question: Where is Naoto's older brother and will he be back?
Answer: (by Kazuya Tsurumaki) "He doesn't really show up in the story...He's probably in the States.. playing Professional baseball." 

Question: How did you settled on the guitar and the Vespa?
Answer: (by Kazuya Tsurumaki) "I have the very same model for vespa... and as for the bass guitar.. I can't play bass guitar ... So I just picked the coolest one."
