This 3D model is written using the Multiverse
Git back-end, several important iteration of its modeling design are included in the asset, see the commit history of the model on the network.
Maneki is named after our mascot “Maneki Neko” (招き猫), literally the beckoning cat: with his welcoming pose and cuteness (かわいい) we invite you to try our rendering technology at http://maneki.sh which is used for BLAME! movie adaptation.
