Imouri-Chan Wants a World of Possibilities
Growing up in rural Japan, Imouri-Chan has only known life working at her family's onsen. Despite the picturesque setting, she has always been left feeling stuck and unfulfilled in her daily routine, longing for something more.
One day, when a girl from New York City comes to stay at the inn, the two strike up a friendship and Imouri-chan becomes fascinated by the girl's stories of life in the big city. Seeing an opportunity for change, Imouri-chan decides to spend her senior year as a foreign exchange student at the girl's high school in New York.
In a place far from familiarity, Imouri-Chan must now navigate life in a foreign country, from adapting to a new culture and making new friends to exploring the city's sights and sounds. Along the way, she'll discover more about herself, her passions, and what it is that she truly wants out of life.
THE DESIGN PROCESS
In April 2019, the concept of Imouri-Chan would become a reality. We had colors in mind, her whole personality on lock and pose ideas ready to try. After hearing and seeing great things from a studio in Singapore called Collateral Damage Studios (CDS), we immediately reached out and never looked back.
Together with the team at CDS, we have continuously created and adapted upon Imouri-Chan, expanding her universe and unwrapping more of her story with each artwork.
