Let me just say that not every Kodansha manga is automatically licensed by Kodansha Comics.

Hi, calling staf members of my favorite Anime data website called Anime News Network. GKids is also the licensor for the movie A Letter to Momo and here is the source: animenewsnetwork.com/news/2012-04-21/gkids-to-release-i.g-a-letter-to-momo-in-u.s-theaters. Please notify me if one of you has put Gkids as the licensor for Momo. Surprised

Is it confirmed that they will be releasing it on home video? "Licensed by" is generally reserved for the company that has home video rights. GKids does theatrical distribution for a number of titles that other companies release to video.

Oh my bad and I thought that they will also be the licensor cause they said they have the rights. I am still learning about licensing, but I am getting close to master it. Also I think FUNimation or Viz Media should be the true licensor. We cool? Cool

On this note, Gkids has now confirmed on Twitter that they will be handling the home video release, so I've added A Letter to Momo as licensed.

All done—I entered 4Kids Entertainment as "expired" for Sonic X and all of the Japanese-produced Yu-Gi-Oh! properties after the original TV series, with Konami as the new licensee for the former and Kidsco for the latter.

It's the other way around.

KidsCo is the former broadcaster for Medabots in Spain. Kidsco Media Ventures (Saban Brands subsidiary) is a completely different company.

http://www.kidscotv.tv

Here is proof that Kidsco Media Ventures (the Saban Brands subsidiary that acquired Sonic X and the Saturday morning block from 4Kids Entertainment) is a subsidiary of Saban Brands:

Official Sonic X page:
http://myvortexx.com/​shows/​sonic-​x

It's not that this information is wrong. I just think that the licensor's name should be changed to Saban Brands so that people don't get confused.

There's one more thing I forgot to add. One of the broadcasters for Dragon Ball Z Kai is currently listed as The CW (Toonzai). Can it be changed to The CW (Toonzai, Vortexx) or just The CW.
