Activity Report Vol.39: Hakuhodo and Tokyo Figure Participate as Partners
Opening the door to the future of Otaku Coin with mighty partners.
In order to make Otaku Coin progress more and increase its credible, a lot of help is required from partners. We, the Otaku Coin Association, are always looking for partners who have the same aspirations, are up for a challenge, and want to contribute to otaku culture together with us.
In this article, we are going to introduce you to two of our new mighty partners that are extremely encouraging to have on this road to realizing Otaku Coin!
Hakuhodo, the first new partner, is one of the most representative companies of Japan and also a global top ten integrated marketing solutions company. From the recent anime series Dragon Pilot: Hisone and Masotan, directed by Shinji Higuchi (Shin Godzilla), all the way to the legendary work Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, directed by Academy Award winning Hayao Miyazaki, Hakuhodo has always supported anime productions and continued to provide the best works.
The vision of Hakuhodo is to provide the best value to, not faceless consumers, but true flesh-and-blood individuals (sei-katsu-sha). Having “people” as the start of everything, that is the common vision between Hakuhodo and Otaku Coin. The participation of HAKUHODO will definitely positively impact Otaku Coin.
Founded in 1895, Hakuhodo continues to innovate everyday life under the unwavering philosophies of “Consumer Conception” and “Partnerism.” Professionals with high creativity organize teams to help clients solve problems in all areas, from management to business to social issues, as well as advertising areas. Hakuhodo anticipates changing the marketing environment and aims to become the world’s leading marketing company that improves the business value of clients with integrated marketing management skills.
Tokyo Figure is the second new partner and a company that produces and sells figures which have become an indispensable part of otaku culture. Based on fans’ demands and their desire for figures of certain characters, Tokyo Figure produces extremely high quality figures in accordance to its strict standard. A closer relationship will be made between Otaku Coin and figures which will in turn bring positive changes between fans and figures too.
Established in June 2016. Manages Tokyo Figure (https://tokyofigure.jp/), a Japanese online shop that designs, manufactures, and sells figures and other anime goods.
Based on the concept of, “Superior beauty and excitement! From Japan to the world, and from the world to Japan!” the company works hard every day to supply great products and emotions to fans around the world by participating in anime, doujinshi, and figure exhibition events. Tokyo Figure teams up with excellent figure manufacturers, makers, and prototype-creators to design and sell products that are faithful and true to the anime or game’s original illustrations, capturing the very essence of the series.
We will continue to seek out partners that can provide more possibilities, credibility, and convenience to Otaku Coin. So please stay tuned!
