I"m not completely sure, but it's probably similar to LLC (lease liability company) in America.

Kabushiki Kaisha. Think of it as "Gonzo Corp." or something like that.

It's not about the name, but Gonzo opens a new animation studio in France ( http://www.gdh.co.jp/​english/​news/​20040824.​html ), and has made a deal with Hasbro to produce a new G.I. Joe series.

Gonzo will realize G.I. Joe, incredible news...

On the official website :

Translated by babelfish Wink


Gonzo also found a studio in France, with Antefilms, a french hopeful animation studio (which only done kids-oriented animation series, the only type of animation we can see on french TV.. Anime cry).

Heh, you'd think that would be something they'd put on their English site being an American project and all. Anime smile + sweatdrop So I guess it's a DtoV (OAV) release, sounds very promising, if it does well maybe Hasbro could finally get around to getting a TV series done again.

I know of a new GI joe series arriving on DVD this month. (Venom VS Valor) but i highly doubt it's the Gonzo-related Anime.More than likely it's another CGI animation short like last year's Spy Troops. But HELL YEAH, I would love to see Snake eyes,Duke,Roadblock,etc. get the Anime makeover. Hopefully with more "realism" this time.

The 1986 Joe movie copped out with the "demise" of Duke,among other storyline flaws. Rolling Eyes

Yo Joe! Razz

Gonzo + G.I. Joe = The most intriuging thing I've heard this week.

I don't know how to react to that. Gonza has a good rep at not making anything too horrible, but do you really think G.I. Joe will do well as an anime in this day and age?

G.I. Joe died in 1996 for me and while the commercials look cool, It feels like their trying to revive it along with Ninja Turtles.

I don't what why these classics need to be dug up. They were fine the way they are and making this will probably just tarnish their name even more.

It's Gonzo however, so I'll hold off on a negative / positive expection for it yet.
