Designed this logo/mascotte for THE international Anime event, in collaboration with BANDAI, Shueisha, Studio Pierrot, SONY ANIPLEX, Toei Animation, TV Tokyo and Sunrise.
From their website:
The first and official live event made and performed by the Japanese creators of the famous Manga and Anime series WORLD PREMIERE – PARIS, Zénith - October 2010 The Greatest SHOW OF MANGA & ANIME ever conceived in the World. JAPAN ANIME LIVE is an extraordinary event that brings live on stage the “all-star” of the world of Japanese animation such as NARUTO-SHIPPUDEN, FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST BROTHERHOOD, BLEACH, ONE PIECE and GUNDAM Series. A unique show for the first time on tour in Europe. JAPAN ANIME LIVE is a mix of live action, live recitation, special stories, flamboyant effects and live music to sing along with the public the original theme songs of the TV series. JAPAN ANIME LIVE is a fast paced POP OPERA that puts into reality a world of fantasy and its heroes. A time-space gate that connects the fans with the dream world of Anime. A “must-attend” event for all cosplayers and Japanese pop culture lovers in general. JAPAN ANIME LIVE is what you will never watch on TV: in fact all animations and stories have been re-created and re-edited exclusively for the show and what’s more, they contain hidden facts about the stories of the beloved Anime characters. Over two and half hours of breathtaking show, divided into five chapters, each one devoted to an animated series, dynamically orchestrated by a script that combines all the different elements of the show. All contents featured in JAPAN ANIME LIVE are licensed and created by Aniplex, Toei Animation, Sunrise, Pierrot, TV Tokyo and Shueisha, which are the major JapaneseAnime-maker companies.
