Over the past four months, the team at ChainX has been working alongside Jeez to form what we all now know as Hikari.

With over 10 years of anime drawing experience, Jeez has solidified himself as one of the leading independent digital artists in the anime space. ChainX has joined forces with Jeez to develop a collection that not only exceeds artistic expectations but also revolutionizes and further develops Web3 as we know it.

This article details the Hikari manuscript (roadmap), breaking down each aspect and providing an exclusive insight into Hikari's future.

Upon minting Hikari you will receive a ‘soul’. One Hikari soul can be used to enter Gen-U, transferring its energy into your Hikari character. However, you may also choose to hold onto your soul in order to unlock future opportunities that may only be unlocked by the energy within a soul.

This decision and the resulting implications will form numerous strategy options for each user. This is the first instance of gamification within the Hikari metaverse enabled by the soul system.

Personalization has revolutionized the direct-to-consumer industry, allowing brands to tailor products to the varied needs of the consumer. Gen-U is a brave step by Hikari and ChainX to lead a new wave of personalization in the NFT space.

Our mission is to create the deepest bond ever seen between holder and art.

Gen-U is the first step in achieving this.

Once you have minted your soul, you will have the opportunity to go through the Gen-U experience at any time by connecting your wallet to our website. Gen-U will then combine aspects of world-renowned personality profile testing and an original branching anime storyline to evaluate your ethics, morals, and values. From this data, it will generate a custom character that represents the life you have lived ‘in-game’.

When will you choose to release your soul’s energy? Character creation through the Gen-U system is your only option at the beginning, but more will arise.

Hint: Where there is light, there is always a shadow.

All minters of Hikari will have the opportunity to receive an honorary edition of the community written Hikari Comic book. This will mark the start of our cross-over into the physical world.

The Hikari community has already begun work on this to ensure it is completed in a timely manner (aiming to have all editions shipped within four weeks post-mint). You will have seven days from mint to place your order.

If you have gone through the Gen-U experience and have received your character before the cut-off time, you can place your Hikari character on the front page of your edition.

Expanding on our crossover into the physical world, the Hikari community will be releasing a streetwear collection. This collection will represent us as a brand: a group of misfits that once tried to blend in, now able to stand out. This collection will be led by our artist Jeez and will commence at the completion of mint.

We are excited to announce that we have partnered with SpireTex to bring you Legends of Hikari, our Hikari MOBA game. Legends of Hikari is expected to be completed within 8 weeks of mint, marking the first step for characters into the Hikari metaverse.

Web3 has given us the opportunity to come together as outcasts, nerds, and misfits from across the globe to craft our own world.

While the vision for Hikari is bold and disruptive, we understand the importance of laying the strongest foundations possible first. Doing so will allow us to bring our dreams to life. We all need to walk before we can run.

It starts with the community, forming a collective of visionaries, builders, creatives, and anime fans, combining forces to push the boundaries in Web3 and get Hikari in front of the eyes of as many people as possible.

Successfully executing the above will open the doors to endless opportunities. Our goals are set high, a Hikari short film, anime feature, and large brand partnerships are the avenues we have already begun to explore.

Together we cannot be ignored.
