Alex started NOVA back as a “Facebook Anime Reviews” Group. Passionate about anime but still a young adult, unbeknownst to him at the time, would grow into something more! Continuing their passion with anime Alex continued to write reviews for a few years. This went on from 2011 to 2014. In 2014, an opportunity presented itself to do something unique in the area. Eventually traveled to Japan and friends of theirs rather out to them asked for goods that they were taking photos of. Exclusive Eevee’s from the Pokémon Center to souvenirs from travel shops while in Japan in 2014. Upon Alex’s return, NOVA Held its first “Mini-Nova” an Anime based event in Northern Ontario. And subsequently NOVA’s form started to take form.
Alex was excited after each event as NOVA enabled him to meet cosplayer’s, other business owners and Artist’s, community leaders and ultimately distributors. NOVA has become a brand in Northern Ontario that is Passionate about Anime, Cosplay, Cute Kawaii, and just being yourself.
Working to be more inclusive. NOVA has taken the opportunity to include a First Nations Cosplayer to their portfolio. KittyCatKai248. There presence has been seen at many conventions that NOVA has been too.
