Saturday AM x Shinda Iro Apparel Collaboration

It's finally here! We are so excited and proud to announce our collab with Saturday AM. Saturday AM is easily the most diverse manga production company in the world!

Unfortunately, many things happened behind closed doors with these investors, co-owners, partners, etc. Hence the periods of inactivity, artwork controversy in 2018, lack of consistent content,...

Our designs and why they don't contain Anime/Manga characters

Hello everyone, today's post is about our designs and why we don't use any licensed characters from anime/manga. 

We get this question a lot, and a lot of people request that we make designs with their favorite characters from popular anime and manga. There's a lot of confusion in the industry when it comes to this subject, as we sadly have to refuse such requests but there are multiple companies out there that are using these characters that aren't official.
