Toei Animation Co., Ltd. announces new project “電殿神伝 (reading: DenDekaDen)” together with Strata Co., Ltd. Toei introduces a new set of characters that will pave a new step into further development of Web 3.0.
The story revolves around seven characters who gradually evolve from spirits to gods as they interact with fans via their Twitter accounts. Reactions and words of encouragement from NFT holders and the community contribute to their transformation.
Using Kyoto as its stage, the project introduces a story that connects Japan and the world in new ways, merging Japanese ancient traditions and mythologies with the digital world of blockchain, empowered by community participation.
Background to Our Partnership
The project was born out of a shared vision, to tell a new kind of story that utilizes blockchain technology. The ultimate aim was to create a new franchise loved across the world, for many years to come.
