METAKAMI is a project created by our team of artists who wants to bring back the excitement of a “choose your own adventure” story through a community manga. Our first delivery will be anime-inspired avatar collection where each character is represented by an endangered animal.
METAKAMI plays boldly with duality.
METAKAMI is a collection of lab-designed hybrid entities in the heightened hyperreality of 3022. The METAKAMI are bodily incarnations that merge kami (Shinto deity) and animals. These genetically engineered humanoids possess the traits and instincts of Earth’s endangered animal species, with divine and supernatural abilities to battle anything that threatens to destroy Mother Nature.
The METAKAMI adventure will be hard on your body and your soul, but we want to replace loneliness with solidarity. To this end, we will implement innovation KAMILAB, where readers of our Manga become Authors. Holders can actively vote on the strategic and creative direction of the METAKAMI Manga in a“Choose Your Own Adventure” format.
Knowledge of Metakami
The State of Things • 時代背景。
Tokyo, Japan. The year is 3022.
The silver metal and glass skyscrapers reflect the flashing neon lights, allowing the city to glow under thick gray clouds of pollution that you might call the sky. The essence of nature has long been drowned out and subverted by the relentless industrial roars and hum of live wires. Technology recreation of the natural world gives a simulated sky: the sun, the moon and the stars are projected on time. If there are plants anywhere in the city, they are plastic. All pets and wildlife have holographic replacements. Amazingly realistic, their digital materializations divert civilization from the fate of total extinction their organic archetypes await.
Ineffective lab-made replacements to the natural function of the ecosystem attempt to mask the intimidating ticking of the doomsday clock. It seems that once animals are completely gone, humans are next. Centuries of failure to preserve nature have instilled helplessness in people, with seemingly no choice but apathy to cope. To be continued…
Girl power has always been a force to be reckoned with in this traditionally male-dominated crypto and NFT space. METAKAMI is proud founded and led by women, which would like to invite everyone to normalize and celebrate the presence of women in the NFT community. We work hard to break down the archaic narratives that have fueled the underrepresentation of women in this space and beyond.
2.CONSERVATION OF ENDANGERED SPECIES
Our NFT art and story features animals that have faced or are facing extinction as a result of human activity. We have made over 150 animal traits for our METAKAMI NFTs, and will contribute to animal conservation by partnering with non-profit organizations who will receive 5% of our royalties, as well as donations of up to $100,000.
We are driven and inspired by the belief that strong communities, sharing progressive and transformative visions, foster the unfettered exchange of meaningful ideas that fuel revolution. The heart of our project is the community with which it strives to build and grow. Beyond co-editing On METAKAMI Manga, we are committed to ensuring rewarding and meaningful experiences for all of our members.
