About the client
In short, Otakuchan.com is a retail experience created for fans of Anime, Games, Comics and Cartoons.
Otakuchan.com was started to create one spot for all otakus that are fans of any type of art from Anime, Games, Comics or Cartoons, and they can find it all in one website.
Otakuchan wanted to move away from WordPress and use modern web technology to achieve a truly outstanding speed and SEO results, which is extremely important in the highly competitive eCommerce world.

Beside that, they also wanted to give it a new look and feel, that will enable a few new functionalities to make the buying experience even more pleasant and effective.

After all the improvements from the UI reframe, through designs into scaling the app with new functionalities, we’ve arrived with the brand new website ready to be used by the first anime fans.
Thanks to Netlify Deployment we could save additional costs.
