There were life-size ‘One Piece’ characters!
To all manga and anime fans who missed all the excitement during the Animezing North exhibit, we got you covered as we look back at the event. SM North EDSA gave a glimpse of Japanese pop culture as the mall transformed The Block Atrium into an anime world where life-size anime toy collections, Japanese cuisine, and, of course, fashion were found.
The project was in collaboration with the country’s renowned toy collector Yexel Sebastian, who showcased his anime collection for public viewing. Yexel’s life-size toy collection of the all-time anime favourite “One Piece” characters, Monkey D. Luffy and “Pirate Hunter” Zoro, and other Pokemon characters. The exhibit was a dream come true for anyone who’s a true otaku at heart.
