Firstly, we just want to say thank you to everyone who participated in our contest! It means so much to us to have our customers and fans be involved in what we do. We wouldn't be the Best Anime Shop without you! Everyone who made a submission should be receiving an e-mail shortly with a 5% discount code as our way of saying 'thanks'.
Now, on to the reveal! There were many wonderful submissions, and it took us a little while to actually narrow it down, but we were able to pick one that we thought would best represent the character, integrity and personality of our new mascot. This is what we decided on:
E M I K O
meaning: blessing • grace • kindness
We are so thankful and blessed with this business, that we thought she should represent our blessing, too. What does everyone think? Should we hold an artwork submission contest next? Let's hear your thoughts!
