VIVERSE and Bandai Namco Pictures have taken another step in their strategic alliance to showcase the unique value of original IP content in the age of the metaverse. “BIRDIE WING” is the world’s first women’s golf-themed anime. One day, Eve, who makes her living by playing underground golf, meets Aoi Amawashi, a girl from a wealthy family with exquisite golfing skills. These two talented girls from different backgrounds are intrigued by each other after they meet, and together the two young golf geniuses are shaking up the world of women’s golf.
Compared to other popular sports, producing a golf anime is more complicated. In addition to the rugged landscapes and difficult production of golf swing motions, the slow pace of golf makes it difficult for audiences to relate to the anime while watching. However, “BIRDIE WING’s” delicate painting style, exhilarating golf game lines, and empathetic friendship between the two protagonists overcame golf’s animation difficulties. The original anime “BIRDIE WING” has been well received in the APAC region.

Starting today, “BIRDIE WING” original artwork, such as character and prop setting images, art board, course design, and main story cut , are now exhibited exclusively at VIVERSE. Until December 31, “BIRDIE WING” fans and fans of anime or women’s golf are invited to visit* the “BIRDIE WING Metaverse Museum” free of charge and explore the world of these talented young golfers.
