In the newly added world “Nostalgia1999” in Toei Animation’s metaverse project “ONN’ON STUDIOS”, a watch party will be held with the full cooperation of Hiromi Seki, producer of “Digimon Adventure” and “Ojamajo Doremi” series.
“Nostalgia1999” is a recreation of an otaku room filled with Sony products and anime goods of the time, based on the concept of a Japanese six-tatami-mat room in July 1999. We hope you will enjoy this nostalgic watch party event with VRChat while watching nostalgic anime in this space full of nostalgic charm.
■ A “Watch Party” (VRChat event) will take place!!
We are pleased to announce that Toei Animation’s new business ONN’ON STUDIOS will hold its first official “Watch Party” event on VRChat. A new world, the “Nostalgia1999,” has appeared on Toei Animation’s ONN’ON STUDIOS, the metaverse space consisting of multiple worlds. Inspired by the concept of a Japanese six-tatami room in July 1999, this new world of the messy room of an “Otaku” packed with Sony products and anime goods of that time has been created in the virtual space produced in collaboration with Sony.
Visitors can watch animated films from the 1990s on the Sony‘s CRT-based Trinitron color television “KW-28HDF7” in the room, explore the room as an avatar, and touch and play with items on the floor.
Watch your favorite 90s anime masterpieces in this nostalgic and immersive space and enjoy our “PARTY”.
