Yukihiko Tsutsumi, Katsuyuki Motohiro, and Yuichi Sato, the leading Japanese directors, are all set to drop nonfungible tokens (NFTs) from their SUPER SAPIENSS entertainment DAO.
It has been reported that the project aims to usher in a new era of entertainment in Japan. SUPER SAPIENSS will launch the NFTs on December 17. SUPER SAPIENSS is a unique entertainment project from Yukihiko Tsutsumi, Katsuyuki Motohiro, and Yuichi Sato.
However, the three directors have been at the forefront of the Japanese entertainment and film industry’s growth. Producer Takeshi Moriya has joined the project as a board member to create and visualize its original story.
The report said that in a first for Japan, the four will jointly produce and direct the project together with their fans. To be sure, in the team’s own words, this is a “super independent project made with fans”. As a creator-first project, SUPER SAPIENSS IP has immense use cases such as webtoon comics and movie creation. To make this a reality, the project will be co-created with the SUPER SAPIENSS entertainment DAO.
SUPER SAPIENSS NFTs are generative art NFTs based on director Tsutsumi’s original character proposal. Manga artist, Chobi developed the artwork for both the NFTs and the SUPER SAPIENSS webtoon. Notably, the NFT creatives focus on Japanese culture, which is becoming increasingly popular across the globe. The project will use these NFTs as a fundraising and community-creation tool.
Thus, for holders, NFTs offer a range of utilities. This includes commercial rights over the NFTs, with holders’ NFTs appearing in webtoons and/or live-action film productions. Holders gain early alpha about the project, the right to suggest ESP ideas for the project, and much more.
