FUNimation Entertainment, Cryptozoic Entertainment, and Quidd announce 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. These and other titles from FUNimation’s catalog will be making their way to Quidd, the leading platform for digital goods, which is available on iOS and Android (LINK). Fans of these iconic series will have their first opportunity to buy, trade and interact with like-minded anime enthusiasts to collect digital stickers, trading cards and figures from their favorite properties.
“We’re thrilled that fans everywhere will soon have new way to share, enjoy and indulge in their favorite anime – as digital collectibles,” said Gen Fukunaga, CEO and President of FUNimation. “Based on Cryptozoic’s success developing multiple Attack 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.”
“We’re extremely pleased to be partnering with the FUNimation and Quidd teams to create digital collectibles based on the iconic worlds of Attack on Titan, My Hero Academia, and so much more,” said John Sepenuk, CEO of Cryptozoic. “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.”
“We’re excited to continue to grow our partnership with Cryptozoic Entertainment, while welcoming FUNimation as a new partner in our digital goods ecosystem,” said Michael Bramlage, the CEO of Quidd. “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.”
Founded in 2015, Quidd’s innovative platform for collecting rare digital goods blends the notions of emotional and functional ownership while leveraging scarcity in the digital retail experience. With over 1.8 billion individually serialized items sold since launch in 2016, Quidd’s digital goods ledger is the largest on the planet.
