Delivering the New Experience to Own Anime to All the Fans

Tokyo, JAPAN –  October 2020: YUIMEX, Inc. is pleased to announce the launch “AniPic!” a new platform service for digital anime goods. On October 28, AniPic will start to deliver a totally new digital goods platform for anime fans using a digital bromide experience. In addition, starting today, prior to the service’s release, a pre-registration campaign will be launched, allowing users to earn “AniPic Coins” that can be used in the service.

The Concept of AniPic

Anime Daisuki!

Not enough with your favourite anime just watching them. Just want something that you can have with you all the time, but not enough…

From the world of anime consumption to the vaguely mysterious world of anime ownership—welcome to an exciting digital world where you can live side-by-side with anime.

Let’s start together. Let’s have a new digital experience!

About AniPic

AniPic concept starts from our voice of how we love Anime and providing an environment where the anime we love is always close to everyone. Due to recent globalization, Japanese anime is now loved around the world, and domestic and international sales in the anime market have been reversed since the summer of 2017. In the midst of the rapid digital transformation in the corona vortex and 5G era, a new form of relationship between fans and anime works is also required. 

While digitization has been progressing, until now there has been no publicly recognized “official goods” for the experience of “storing and sharing” anime images and videos on the digital platform. This service uses the latest blockchain technology to securely manage anime data, making it possible to digitally store diceable characters and famous scenes in an authorised form. In conjunction with the launch of the service at the end of October, this service platform will make full use of anime data, the crystallization of animators’ souls, and allow users to experience a new digital ownership experience of the long-loved “bromide” as the one-of-a-kind digital bromide “AniPic”. 

*The titles available will be announced in mid-October. We will announce the titles available in mid-October.

How AniPic Works

On the front side of AniPic, you can view the master data and copyrighted illustrations of the anime in ultra-high resolution, and on the back side, there are many contents that can only be seen by the purchaser, such as cast members involved in the production, staff credits up to the original AniPic image, and secret messages from the production team. You can also inscribe your own user information as the owner of the AniPic, along with production team information. You can also inscribe your own user information as the owner of the AniPic, along with production team information.

By storing the acquired AniPic in “AniPic”, you can create your own original album. Furthermore, each AniPic is assigned a unique NFT via the blockchain, which proves that it is “yours” in the same way as real goods in the digital world.

Professionally Generated Contents are digital content that you can own in an authorised form and feel connected to creators like never before. 

AniPic! Platform uses blockchain technology to manage important anime copyrights, proving the uniqueness of each piece of anime data with NFT and managing the master data with blockchain. AniPic! Platform uses blockchain technology to manage important anime copyrights, proving the uniqueness of each piece of anime data with NFT and managing the master data with blockchain.

NFT stands for Non-Fungible-Token which is a token with a unique value that is issued based on the Ethereum standard, ERC721. AniPic! links the important copyright data created by animators who put their hearts and souls into their work to NFT and securely manages it on the blockchain, providing a unique and original digital proof of official status and delivering digital ownership of scenes, drawings and scenes of anime to anime fans around the world.
