Thanks to Mashamasha for some snippets she translated from ANN show on 12.11.2011 where Masha discusses on the GREE characters;
it seems the "characters" are designed by masha (at first i thought he followed the cards to draw), and then GREE uses his design and created the "improved" versions
that's what he said in ann last week
F: Totally I have drawn about 5 pictures, with a wide variety. I drew some strong characters and also some weak characters. For the strong ones, I used some strong marine creatures in my mind as motif. Just like 幪面超人used grasshopper as motif (how dare he compare his drawing with 幪面超人?!). I combined human being with those strong marine creatures.
S: Did they carry weapons?
F: About the weapon, I leave it to the professionals to design, because i don't have the knowledge
Wow! He has a lot of feedback on the look of the characters then. But I can't help but applaud the imagination of the people who actually turned Masha's "skeletal" concept into full fleshed looking characters. Amazing! Anyway the following thanks to Angelreii of MashaPlus.
