Tokyo, Japan. 2021: GemShip was founded under the mission of "delivering a new wave of digital culture inspired by anime, manga, and video games into the hands of people all around the world." GemShip is an online marketplace for independent artists and fans alike to buy and sell digital merchandise.
These recent years have welcomed a surge of anime, manga, and video game works. From ideas born by an individual, a new independent artist emerges spurring interest amongst the crowd and attracting a fanbase along the way. Those most passionate about the independent artist's works, their core fans - while they view renowned studios or blockbusters as nothing short of being magnificent, aim for the indie artwork's intrinsic uniqueness and stylistic flair. These undiscovered indie artists may be a diamond in the rough, but with a little nudge from the Internet, their works and goods are bound to shine bright too, and, help carve a path for them to be tomorrow's hitmakers.
