Animoca Brands Japan announces TV anime ‘Liar, Liar’ digital efigurine NFTs in San FranTokyo’s Weebox
Tokyo, Japan - 15 November 2023 - Animoca Brands Japan announced today that it will launch limited edition digital efigurine NFTs of key characters from the TV anime Liar, Liar (ライアー・ライアー; original work by Haruki Kuou; published by KADOKAWA; character design by konomi (kinokonomi) and Funa Yukina) on Weebox, the first flagship store in the decentralized city San FranTokyo, created by KLKTN.
Liar, Liar was broadcasted on Crunchyroll starting in July 2023 and gained a global following of anime fans. In March 2024, Animoca Brands Japan will drop efigurine NFTs featuring original designs of the popular characters from the series, including Himeji Shirayuki, Saionji Sarasa, and Shiina Tsumugi.

Those who purchase the NFTs will be able to claim their physical figures on Weebox during a claim window, with details to be announced in due course by Weebox.
Liar, Liar efigurine NFTs will be released in March 2024 in a limited edition run of 1,000 NFTs for each character. Other availability and pricing details will be provided on the Weebox website.
