This strategic partnership underscores the global recognition and potential of Cool Cats. Here are some of the exciting initiatives planned under this collaboration:
Cool Cats Manga
Venturing into the heart of Japanese culture, the trio will collaboratively produce a Cool Cats manga one-shot or “yomikiri” (読み切り), merging the world of Cool Cats with Japan’s storied manga tradition. This manga will be written and illustrated by a Japanese manga artist, promising a unique blend of creativity.
San FranTokyo has acquired a variety of NFTs, including Cool Cats, Shadow Wolves, and SideKX NFTs for its treasury. These acquisitions will not only build the intellectual property around Cool Cats’ main characters but also provide essential material to ensure any new stories told will honor the original source IP.
Efforts from Animoca Brands Japan and San FranTokyo will be primarily focused on expanding the Cool Cats IP through various channels in Japan. They will also help forge new relationships for Cool Cats with some of Japan’s most prominent organizations in the entertainment and intellectual property industries. These initiatives will span traditional merchandising, licensing opportunities, collaborations with other officially licensed IPs, and the creation of Vtuber content with Cool Cats IP.
Integration with San FranTokyo
Exciting prospects lie ahead with plans to potentially weave the Cool Cats IP narrative into the city of San FranTokyo. Initiatives include interactive figurine drops, aligning marketing efforts with iconic Japanese IPs, and more, all designed to immerse the Cool Cats IPs in the vibrant cultural landscape of San FranTokyo.
