Funimation, Cryptozoic Entertainment, and Quidd announced a wide-ranging partnership to create digital collectibles for an array of properties including Attack on Titan, Tokyo Ghoul, My Hero Academia, Full Metal Panic and Hellsing. Anime enthusiasts would be able to collect digital stickers, trading cards and figures from their favorite properties.
“Based on Cryptozoic’s success developing multiple attacks on Titan themed games as well as their track record creating digital content with Quidd for numerous mainstream entertainment properties, I am looking forward to seeing what they create with our catalogue — both current hit series like My Hero Academia and popular classics like Hellsing. Anime fans will not be disappointed,” said Gen Fukunaga, CEO, and President of Funimation.
Founded in 2015, Quidd’s innovative platform for collecting, rare digital goods blend the notions of emotional and functional ownership while leveraging scarcity in the digital retail experience.
“We’re huge fans of anime, so this is an exciting start to Cryptozoic’s foray into digital content based on beloved anime properties. We are launching with some incredible digital cards, stickers, and collectibles and we have tons more planned to keep Quidd users engaged in the months to come,” said John Sepenuk, CEO of Cryptozoic.
“Our growth over the past 16 months has been nothing short of incredible, and we’re huge fans and believers in Funimation’s team, vision, and content strategy,” said Michael Bramlage, the CEO of Quidd.
With over 1.8 billion individually serialized items sold since launch in 2016, Quidd’s digital goods ledger is the largest on the planet.
Funimation, a subsidiary of Sony Pictures Television, is the go-to destination for extraordinary anime.
