Anime and manga are quickly rising genres in the NFT space. MakersPlace hosts a wide range of artists and collections working with anime/manga styles in their artwork. 

Capsule House

Another manga-style project coming aboard MakersPace is Capsule House, with a total sales volume of $3MM over just the last seven days. Capsule House is a collection of 10,000 unique CAPSULE NFTs — a digital version of the gachapon (ガシャポン) capsule toys popular in Japan.

With over 120 variants and endless combinations of traits, each Capsule NFT contains a verifiably rare and unique gachapon artwork. Holding a Capsule grants you future drops from the team, as well as an all-access pass to the expansion of the CAPSULEVerse.

Zodiac Capsule Collection

The Zodiac Capsule collection is a supplementary collection launched in November 2021 as a free mint to Capsule House holders. A Zodiac can either be minted from a Capsule whose Zodiac has been unclaimed or bought on the secondary market. In order to unlock the utility of the hatched Capsule profile picture, you must hold a capsule from the original Capsule House collection. 


Azuki NFT pfp

One notable project, Azuki — now available on MakersPlace — is a fast-growing blue-chip NFT pfp (profile pic) collection of anime-style characters in profile. Though they only launched earlier this year, the project is currently the fourth-ranked pfp project — beating out Cool Cats, Meebits, and Doodles and only behind CryptoPunks, Bored Ape Yacht Club, and Mutant Ape Yacht Club. 


Pondering is one such artist who paints easter-egg-filled digital dreamscapes inspired by anime, gaming, and web3 culture. (Pondering has also been commissioned by Capsule House to create their first community treasury-funded project to be minted by our holders this April.

Alex Pardee’s collection “ANIME-iacs” blends Pardee’s signature “brightmare” aesthetic onto anime-style characters for some truly horrific results.

On the other end of the spectrum are artists like Fades, who creates saturated anime portraits that feel like retro ad campaigns — manga’s answer to pop art.
