Anime Influence

The influence of anime aesthetics and characters is on the rise in North America

Implications - The incorporation of anime themes and designs into mainstream North American products, typically unassociated with the anime industry itself, is on the rise. The use of anime-like or inspired aesthetics comes as Millennials who grew up watching Japanese animations, are now in positions where they can infuse the aesthetic, cultural and entertainment influences that they grew up on into their own work, merging nostalgia with contemporary consumer expectations.

Workshop Question - Conceptualize an anime-influenced campaign, product, or service that your brand could deliver to consumers.
