TOKYO! This city is pure creativity, pure excitement. Host Patrick Macias takes us through food, fashion, manga, anime and more in PURE TOKYO, a five-episode, original video series exclusively on Funimation’s official YouTube channel.
Each episode dives deep into a cultural touchstone of Tokyo, from art and cooking, to fashion design and, of course, anime! Take a look below at each episode as they air, and let us know what you think!
PURE TOKYO Episode 1 features a live-drawing and interview with the iconic Terumi Nishii, who has worked on series like JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure.
PURE TOKYO Episode 2 takes us to Harajuku, where we learn about HYPER CORE, and a surprising connection to…Billie Eilish??
PURE TOKYO Episode 3 is all about udon, and a traditional way to prepare it. We’re hungry just watching!
PURE TOKYO Episode 4 takes us into the world of toymaking, from someone who made their way to Tokyo to bring their art to life!
PURE TOKYO Episode 5 reminds us that anime…is EVERYWHERE! Let’s take a look through the anime manhole covers in the streets of Japan.
