Yoanimate Stores Open at Yoyogi Animation Academy’s Tokyo, Osaka, and Fukuoka Campuses
Yoanimate, a co-branded store operated by anime technical school Yoyogi Animation Academy and anime merchandise retailer Animate, opened at the school’s Tokyo, Osaka, and Fukuoka campuses on May 28th.
The first in a series of collaborative efforts planned by Animate, which recently celebrated its 30th anniversary, Yoanimate is the title given to official Animate stores located on Yoyogi Animation Academy’s campuses. The stores carry a wide array of merchandise selected to appeal to the school’s aspiring anime artists and creators. Yoanimate stores will be added to the school’s Sendai, Hiroshima, and Kanazawa campuses in the near future.
To promote the opening of Yoanimate, for every 500 yen spent at the stores, customers will receive one of six different menko cards (a traditional Japanese card game) based on anime series “Osomatsu-san”. Quantities are limited, and the promotion will end when supplies are exhausted.
