June 27, 2006 Sojitz Invests In ADV

Nice article by the comics business news and analysis site on Japanese conglomerate Sojitz buying into ADV Vision through one of its subsidiaries and an investment group including other entertainment companies, the successful anime company with the high-profile and less successful manga company, ADV Manga. The move reflects the general belief that the American and European markets are growth areas for the worldwide anime business. Although the report says there will not be management changes at the top of ADV Vision, there will be an expansion of that company operations. The company also promises plans in store for the company's flailing manga division.
