dc20willsave Posted January 3, 2012 Report Share Posted January 3, 2012 Bandai Entertainment to Stop Releasing New DVDs, BDs, Manga posted on 2012-01-02 10:00 EST Bandai Entertainment, the subsidiary of Namco Bandai Holdings (USA) that handles anime and manga in North America, will stop offering new DVD, Blu-ray Disc, and manga releases next month. It will continue to distribute in its existing catalog lineup, but it will no longer produce and distribute new releases as of this February. Instead, Bandai Entertainment will focus on licensing rights to other companies, particularly in digital distribution, broadcast, and merchandising. The company will be restructured as a result, and most of its contractors and three of its five fulltime staff members will be laid off. ANN will publish an interview with Bandai Entertainment President and CEO Ken Iyadomi on Tuesday. Source. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
