KOLLECT, a NFT project envisioning a metaverse playground, has forged a significant partnership with several manga and anime companies to procure exclusive intellectual property (IP) rights. This collaboration with Artlim Media marks a strategic move in broadening its content repertoire, with an emphasis on enhancing the value of KOLLECT’s NFT collection through an IP agreement centered around the manga ‘Freezing’.
Established in 1995 and rooted in the ideology of the creative group CDPA, Artlim Media stands as a prominent content planning firm. With a commitment to satiating the evolving needs of the digital age, the company’s primary objective is crafting content spanning diverse genres to delight readers and users. This dedication manifests in its creation of premium content across offline and digital platforms, along with various social media services, ensuring unparalleled customer satisfaction.
‘Freezing’, a manga penned by the acclaimed Korean writer Lim Dahl-young and adorned with illustrations by Kim Kwang-hyun, unravels the tale of Pandora and their allies—a specialized military faction defending Earth from the Nova, enigmatic entities from an alternate dimension. The Pandoras, comprising genetically modified young women, rally together in a valiant effort to safeguard Earth from the Nova onslaught. With over 2.5 million copies sold in Japan, this beloved manga has transcended its original form, evolving into anime and video games, and inspiring multiple sequels.
A spokesperson from KOLLECT remarked, “This alliance with Artlim Media has empowered us to acquire the ‘Freezing’ IP, ushering a manga sensation—with sales surpassing 2.5 million in Japan—into the NFT metaverse. This not only broadens our horizon but also paves the way for an array of derivative creations spanning anime and games.”
