With technology constantly advancing and pushing the boundaries of image sharing and testing the limits of copyright laws, it has become increasingly difficult to legally own and display anime-related images online, which is where we all live now. On top of that, sales from merchandise and other goods don't really reach the creators of your favorite anime and manga so they actually don't even benefit from the merch sometimes.
That's where AniPic! comes in. AniPic is a digital platform that connects fans with official artwork straight from the creators themselves that fans can then own and display proudly. On top of that, all money fans spend on the art pieces goes directly to the creators, therefore fans directly benefit their favorite artists and can get personal messages from cretors too. AniPic! launches today, so we thought we'd give you a crash course on it and tell you about an awesome Great Pretender collaboration that is also starting today!

It's All Actually Pretty High-Tech!
AniPic looks to provide anime lovers with an environment where our favorite anime are always accessible, AniPic allows users all over the world to have a new digital experience with Japanese content while respecting copyright laws.
AniPic! is "anime image data". On AniPic, every image will have a unique NFT (non-fungible token) which is a blockchain technology to prove that you are the owner of the AniPic you have purchased. The company is working with anime studios to develop a platform to sell AniPic to provide each user with a new digital experienc—a high-definition anime image with their name engraved on it.
Wherever the anime fan is, AniPic aims to connect creators and fans like never before.
