In which we would discuss matters relating to Manga Ent, which may include wonky chapter markers and subtitles that are changed to make One Piece sound more British.
I was trying for a witty intro post. I could edit out the comments about two known issues with Manga's releases.thedoctor2016 said:
Well, Jerome seems to be complaining about the amounts of money thrown around by the bigger companies (which to be fair, seems to be a valid complaint, given the general consensus is that we're in another "anime bubble"). Without being rude, I doubt Manga Animatsu has enough money to outbid another company should they have become interested, so I'd speculate maybe Animatsu were the only interested party at this stage, given how little information there was about the film.britguy said:Damn these companies obtaining worldwide rights for properties and screwing over little UK companies.......oh wait, Animatsu have the worldwide license....that's ok then?
EIther way, interested to see this
You mean like Universal, Aniplex and PonyCanyon are for most titles they acquire, and Crunchyroll are for a few series nowadays as well?Buzz201 said:
Yeah, but I'd note Jerome never complained about any Crunchyroll, PonyCan, Aniplex or Universal show (for that reason*.) His complaint was more about Funimation or Sentai or whoever just flat out bidding insane amounts of money for worldwide rights, effectively barring him from the process. I would also point out that Aniplex of America and NBCUniversal Entertainment Japan seem to be separate divisions of their respective companies, so it's like Universal UK or Aniplex of America are on the production committee, but their corporate siblings are. Aniplex of America has to bid for Aniplex titles, and they can't offer much below market rate.kuuderes_shadow said:You mean like Universal, Aniplex and PonyCanyon are for most titles they acquire, and Crunchyroll are for a few series nowadays as well?Buzz201 said:
With Jerome's talk about producing anime and with their logo being next to Genco and Mappa's on the promo image Andrew posted, I did wonder.Buzz201 said:
According to Animatsu's official press release, it's only a licence, but it reads to me like just an international sales deal:Shiroi Hane said:With Jerome's talk about producing anime and with their logo being next to Genco and Mappa's on the promo image Andrew posted, I did wonder.
Produced by GENCO, with Japanese animation studio MAPPA, In This Corner of the World has been licensed to Animatsu Entertainment for the film’s worldwide sales. GENCO, in turn, will release In This Corner of the World in Japan this October.
