Infinifan, Inc. Expands Partnership With FUNimation With Fruits Basket, Tokyo Ghoul, and Trigun Licensing Deals

Infinifan, Inc. is adding three more FUNimation licenses to its anime catalog: Fruits Basket (2019), Tokyo Ghoul, and the classic series Trigun. The announcement was made over the July 4, 2021 weekend to coincide with what would have been Anime Expo weekend. All three new properties will have Mochibi product lines, as well as a new plush keychain line called Clippits. Both product lines are currently in development, and a release date window will be announced within the coming months.

Mochibi are officially licensed, super-soft, super-cute stylized versions of popular anime and gaming characters, and the perfect size for squeezing- approximately 6″ x 5″. Featuring embroidered faces, and quality materials and printing, the “comfort” plush are both highly detailed and collectible.

Infinifan has previously partnered with FUNimation to develop Mochibi for My Hero Academia and Dragon Ball Z, and continue to add to these product lines, as well.
