"charaICHI" is owned and operated by Toppan Character Production CO., LTD.

We run a character registration and search database for "Licensers" who are looking to sell their characters and "Licensees" who want to find a character to use.

We also provide the latest information on character marketing and trends. Check it out!

Here are some of the features of the charaICHI site:

We publish searchable articles on character information for Licensers who have characters. We recommend various kinds of merchandise that your character could be used for.

Furthermore, our specialized staff can answer any questions you have about character licenses.

*A registration fee (based on the number of characters you wish to register) is required.
*After registering as a licenser, as a License Counter, we will undertake contracts and quality control.
