Main Staff

Narita Nobuya (なりた のぶや)

The producer as well as the main scenario writer for the UNDER NIGHT IN-BIRTH series. He is one of the founders of French-Bread as a doujin circle. Narita has mentioned in an interview that his favorite character is Hilda.

He often posts to Twitter about his progress in mobile games such as "Fate/Grand Order" and "Ingress".

Narita is also a close friend of Hiiragiboshi Takumi, the author of the "Absolute Duo" light novel series. They met over 15 years ago while both were still amateurs making doujins. Narita and Yoshihara have helped in designing battle suits for the "Absolute Duo" light novels. (Link)

Yoshihara Seiichi (吉原 成一)

A sprite artist who has worked with FRENCH-BREAD since the days of Melty Blood. Back then, he used the name Yoshihara Honoka (吉原ほのか), which can be seen in the game's credits.

He is the character designer and the original planner for the UNDER NIGHT IN-BIRTH series. Ideas for characters and the setting have existed since his days in high-school. Yoshihara's personal favorite characters are Linne and Seth.

Serizawa Kamone (芹沢 鴨音)

The main battle planner for both Melty Blood and UNDER NIGHT IN-BIRTH, as well as the leader of the programming team. Kamone handles the updates to the official homepage and Twitter. He is also the host of French-Bread's monthly Twitch broadcast. Kamone is often seen playing the most recently added characters of the game as a way to promote and teach new techniques. He occasionally returns to play using his main character of choice, Hilda. Nowadays, he mostly plays Enkidu.

Kamone has played fighting games since his grade-school days thanks to the influence from his older brother. Kamone spent a lot of time in finding glitches and infinite combos in various fighting games and posting videos to NicoNicoDouga. This eventually led in him being scouted to the FRENCH-BREAD.[2]

He plays various fighting game and often streams them on his personal Youtube channel. He is well-known as a huge fan of the anime franchise NEW GAME! He is also a fan of mobage games such as "Kirakira Fantasia", "AzurLine", "Fate/Grand Order" and "Granblue Fantasy".
