Top 6 Manga/Anime NFTs
When the Azuki anime NFT project dropped 10,000 NFTs back in January it made a big impact, dominating the market. It’s still ranked at number one over the last 30 days on OpenSea, and has a floor price over 10 ETH.
Azuki did everything right, with a metaverse plan, community, physical merchandise, and–most importantly–fresh, clean, manga-style visuals, done at a very high quality level.
For anyone into manga and anime, Azuki has an immediate appeal, and nowadays there are a lot of people around the world into manga and anime.
Azuki might be the big name at the moment, but it’s not the only otaku-friendly project or platform, so let’s look at some other points where anime and NFTs crossover.
Built on Binance Smart Chain is Trophee, an NFT platform and marketplace utilizing its own native token, $MANGA.
The Trophee ecosystem is a little complicated, but it contains some nice-looking NFTs, and the $MANGA token can be staked to earn more tokens. Additionally, holding the tokens enables access to free manga (as in comics, not the token) on the system’s Manga Reader.
Trophee’s NFTs are priced in $MANGA, and the best way to get to grips with it all is to buy some of the native tokens and start interacting (click through to Pancake Swap at the top right of the Manga Token site).
Minted in February on Solana, Otaku Origins sold out over the course of two days, and will now push on with plans laid out in the litepaper. It’s heavily anime focused, and ownership of one of the NFTs permits entry to the project DAO.
The plans are to produce a community-driven comic book series and to expand into gaming. Some of the artwork for the comic books has been revealed and is looking good.
With a sizable following in the Cardano NFT space is ADA Ninjaz. It’s a carefully thought out project including original, readable manga, storytelling, community, a planned soundtrack, and NFTs, the first two seasons of which you can pick up on secondary, with one more season yet to come.
Psychedelic and upbeat, Karfuru launched at the start of February, sold out its initial 5,555 NFTs very quickly, and has a huge following on its social media channels. There are plans in the roadmap for 3D NFTs, and physical toys.
And if you like Karafuru, then you should also familiarize yourself with WD Willy, the artist who, along with Museum of Toys, co-created it. You can find more of his work on Tezos-based marketplace Hic et Nunc.
If you buy one of the 10,000 Capsule House NFTs then you’ll gain access to future events and offers in the CAPSULEVerse.
What makes that enticing is that Capsule House is the work of Kaejunni and Seerlight, both talented illustrators with big followings. Also, according to the Capsule House roadmap, capsule holders will have exclusive access to future work by Seerlight.
