VIVERSE and Bandai Namco Pictures are working closely together; the original anime “BIRDIE WING” has been received well
VIVERSE and Bandai Namco Pictures have reached a new milestone in their strategic alliance to showcase the unique value of original IP content in the metaverse era. “BIRDIE WING” is the world’s first anime on the theme of women’s golf. One day, Eve, making a living by playing underground golf, meets Aoi Amawashi, a girl from a wealthy family with exquisite golfing skills. These two talented girls from different backgrounds are intrigued by each other after their meeting, and together the two young golf geniuses shake up the world of women’s golf.
Compared with other popular sports, producing a golf anime is more complicated. In addition to the rugged scenery and the challenging golf swing motion production, the slow pace of golf makes it difficult for audiences to relate to the anime while watching. However, the delicate painting style of “BIRDIE WING,” the exhilarating golf game lines, and the empathetic friendship between the two protagonists have overcome the difficulties of animatizing golf. “BIRDIE WING” original anime has been well received in the APAC region.
“BIRDIE WING -Golf Girls’ Story-” has entered the metaverse; more content will be released shortly
From today, the original artworks of “BIRDIE WING,” such as the character and props setting images, art board, course design, and main story cut, are now on display exclusively at VIVERSE. Until December 31, fans of “BIRDIE WING” and enthusiasts of anime or women’s golf are welcome to visit* the “BIRDIE WING Metaverse Museum” for free and explore the world of these talented, young female golfers.
