​INTRODUCTION

 Little Connect Co., Ltd., Production Name Little Flower Project (hereafter referred to as "we" or "us") would like to thank all of you who have supported us since the beginning of our activities through Fan Fiction activities, which have allowed us to create and provide new content constantly.

 We believe the interactive activities between you and us will continue to bring forth new creativity and ideas and enable us to provide excellent content.

 For this reason, we have established the "Fan Fiction Guidelines" (hereinafter referred to as the "Guidelines") so that everyone can safely engage in Fan Fiction activities.

​ We appreciate your understanding and cooperation so that more people can become familiar with and enjoy our content.
