Kadokawa is shuffling management... in a good way?

That's good to know then. That was my first worry as I'd want him as a game creator more than as a company president.
It's not set in stone, but From's corporate culture seems to smile on leading from the trenches, while the strategic alignment behind KADOKAWA will likely take many management issues out of his hands compared to leading an independent developer. There's room for cautious optimism that it's mainly KADOKAWA signaling they want From to stay From.
