Weekly series of original character “1/1” auctions to be held throughout 2022 on Solana’s leading NFT marketplace.

TOKYO, Japan – April 26, 2022 – Terumi Nishii and Magic Eden announced today ZERO x IREZUMI, an upcoming series of original anime characters set to be released throughout the year as auctions, exclusively on Solana’s leading NFT marketplace, Magic Eden. The partnership represents Magic Eden’s first collaboration with a major Japanese anime artist, and marks Terumi Nishii’s first NFT project. Two NFTs from the collection will become available every week starting on May 4, 2022 on Magic Eden.

Each NFT will feature original character art hand drawn by Terumi Nishii alongside exciting lore that reveals the world of ZERO x IREZUMI. Releasing exclusively on Magic Eden on a set weekly schedule — just like anime watchers are used to with their favorite shows — the project creates an ongoing “tune in” experience fans can plan around, have discussions, and engage with.

“I’m excited to be sharing our characters and world of ZERO x IREZUMI with anime fans everywhere through our wonderful partners at Magic Eden, which we see as the perfect bridge between creators and the community,” said Terumi Nishii, co-creator and character designer. “I will do my best to make these characters enjoyable. Thanks for supporting us!”

“We’re honored to be the exclusive platform for creators like Terumi Nishii and showcase her work as she embarks on her Solana NFT journey.” said Tiffany Huang, Head of Marketing and Content at Magic Eden.

In addition to the character art auctions, Terumi Nishii will also be doing drawing sessions to promote ZERO x IREZUMI and engage with fans. The first of these will be available live on Magic Eden’s Discord exclusively for MagicDAO, holders of Magic Ticket NFTs, later to be released onto other social channels. More information will be available soon on the Magic Eden Discord.

Two auctions per week start every 4:00 PM on Wednesdays in Los Angeles / 8:00 AM on Thursdays in Tokyo, with countdown preview pages on Magic Eden going live 48 hours prior to launch. Visit for the latest information on the ZERO x IREZUMI project.
