WAGMAA! Welcome to the second Shinsei Galverse monthly newsletter, shooting across time & space to make the galaxy a better place.

Shinsei Galverse - May Town Hall
Gals in Japan!
Team Galverse, united at last!
Team Galverse, united at last!
Ayaka and Emi are based in Tokyo, Devin in California, and Wailoaloa in Australia. The team launched Shinsei Galverse without all meeting each other IRL!
That all changed when we met up in Tokyo in May. We sat down to layout the direction, values and vision of Galverse, our solid plans for WAGMAA, and much more.
Of course, we also spent our time meeting with anime studios, producers, and legends of the industry. Let’s share some of that…

NYC memories 💫

Thanks for every Gal who turned out. We'll see you all next time for something special 🌠 https://t.co/3hcU227UBz
Legends of Anime!
Ayaka, Morimoto-san, and Emi!
Ayaka, Morimoto-san, and Emi!
Koji Morimoto! Assistant Director of AKIRA.
Moriomoto-san has been a key creator of hits like Macross Plus, Animatrix, SPRIGGAN, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Mind Game, Space Cobra and more.
On top of being an amazing animator and director, he also started his own studio and created many original works.
Galverse’s amazing artist Ayaka and Morimoto-san bonded over their shared teacher, legendary anime director and animator Manabu Ohashi.
Ohashi-sensei recently passed away, and had worked on major projects like Astro Boy, Space Cobra, Cyborg 009, Ashita no Joe 2, Metropolis and more.
We hope to spend more time with Morimoto-san in the near future.

Wailoaloa, Ayaka, Masuo Ueda, Emi, and Devin!
Wailoaloa, Ayaka, Masuo Ueda, Emi, and Devin!
Masuo Ueda! Producer of Mobile Suit Gundam, Cowboy Bebop, Inuyasha, City Hunter, and so much more!
Ueda-san is a legendary anime producer. If you wrote down your 5 favorite anime, chances are he was involved in at least a couple of them!
Beyond being just a producer, he was also the president of Aniplex and A-1 Pictures. Now he’s an independent producer with his own company.
He was deeply interested in Galverse’s WAGMAA mission and the world of Web3. Ueda-san had some strong views on how NFTs and Web3 can help the processes of anime production, which are pretty old-school.
Wailoaloa told him that Bebop inspired a whole new generation of jazz & blues lovers. He said, making Bebop was one of the hardest projects ever - doing so many new and creative things!

Emi, Ayaka, Tomokazu Seki, Wailoaloa, and (missed the pose) Devin!
Tomokazu Seki! The voice of major characters in One Piece (Rob Lucci), Psycho-Pass (Kogami), Jujutsu Kaisen (Panda), Evangelion, Bleach, Persona and much more.
Seki-san has his own show about the metaverse, where he appears as a 3D character and IRL!
He told us he only had a shallow understanding of the world of Web3, but we found him to be engaging, intelligent and very creative!

We talked about how Web3 projects like Shinsei Galverse could help voice actors, and he had some great ideas for how we might work together.
The team met with plenty of other awesome and amazing people on our trip! Too many to mention in one newsletter!
We had a great time discussing Galverse and our vision for Web3 anime with folks from Hulu Japan, the founder of Crunchy Roll Japan and a heap of other superstars!
The team also met some amazing Web3 creators IRL, like Friends With You, Eri Harigai, Professor Crypton, Galverse mod and NFT artist Sawaco, and many more!

NHK interviewed the whole team about the launch of Galverse and our goal to make an anime!
We even posted some announcements to the Discord while on camera! They were really interested in the community-driven element of the project.
Emi had to go back into the NHK studio a bit later to react to the videos of the team getting interviewed. They even dubbed over Devin & Wailoaloa’s voices in Japanese.
Hey, NHK - we’re subs-only over here!!
We were also interviewed for a piece with Business Insider Japan!
Once the interviews are published, we’ll be sure to share them in our discord!
Noah Opinion - NFTs will (probably) be back.
“Galverse has figured out a possible new method to use NFTs as tickets to new realms of fun.”

WAGMAA on the way!
We met with a whole bunch of anime producers, studios, and distributors during our team camp in Japan!
While we have a few solid options on the table already, the team is committed to making the best possible production of Shinsei Galverse.
So, we’ll be meeting with more producers, studios, and artists in the near future to gather a pool of great options for WAGMAA.
The two most important factors for us, are:
  1. Creative control for Ayaka and Emi;
  2. Community involvement in the WAGMAA process!
A lot of people we met understand and support both of these goals already. Stay tuned for our first WAGMAA engagements with the community, and plenty of awesome experiments before then!

It was a chance to get to know each other better, push towards our community goal of WAGMAA, and set a really solid foundation for the future of Shinsei Galverse.
And, of course, get some karaoke done. Now that’s team building!
See you at NFT NYC..!
