Crunchyroll, the leading platform for anime and manga, has partnered with NBCUniversal Entertainment Japan (NUEJ) to co-develop new anime titles. The two companies, which hope to create anime content with international appeal, will work together to produce a range of titles based on existing and new content.
The Partnership, according to Crunchyroll Founder and GM, Kun Gao, “made sense as an exciting opportunity to bring more high-quality content to the anime community.”
In the past, Crunchyroll has been an international distribution partner for NUEJ, with past titles including some of anime’s biggest series to date, such as “Berserk” and “Drifters.”
“Crunchyroll has always been a trusted partner in bringing the series we produce to screens everywhere internationally,” said James Takagi, Managing Director, NUEJ. “With Crunchyroll, we will make the newest and best anime titles accessible to audiences outside of Japan. Together, we look forward to working with fresh and exciting talent to bring anime fans around the world more of what they love — premium anime content.”
More details on projects and specific titles to be announced at a later date.
