Brand New Anime Experience from AniPic! Now Available for Pre-Registration

Tokyo, JAPAN – Sep 30 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!

■Platform Concept
Japanese anime is loved around the world, and domestic and international sales in the anime market have been reversing 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 required.

Up until now, there has been no officially approved "official goods" for the experience of "storing and sharing" anime images and videos digitally. This service uses the latest blockchain technology to securely manage anime data, making it possible to digitally own a variety of danceable characters and famous scenes in an authorized form. This is a new digital experience that can only be experienced here for anime fans.

■Anime Content Concept
The first new digital experience offered by this service will be an one and only digital bromide, "AniPic", based on the long-time favorite "Bromide".

On the front side of the "AniPic", you can view the master data and copyrighted illustrations of the anime in ultra-high resolution, and on the backside of the "AniPic", there are many contents that can only be seen by the purchaser, such as the cast members involved in the production, staff credits up to the second original picture of the "AniPic", and secret messages from the production team. In addition, you can carve your own user information as the owner of the AniPic, along with the information of the production team. By storing the AniPic in the "AniPic Album", users will be able to create their own original albums.

In addition, each AniPic has a unique NFT (AniPic Ownership Rights) attached to it via the blockchain, proving that it is "yours" in the digital world, just like real goods. This digital content allows users to feel a connection with creators that have never been seen before.

*NFTs are "non-replaceable" tokens recorded on the blockchain, and by attaching ownership and attribution information, a digital token can be given value and proven to be unique on the blockchain. In the game industry, a title called "dApps game" has already appeared, which allows users to exchange NFTs such as characters and items for cryptographic assets, promoting the digitization of all industries, including distribution and trading services for movable property (art, cars, etc.) and real estate using NFTs.
