has researched some additional details regarding Geneon
's distribution deal with Toei
. Contrary to what was widely assumed, Geneon
will be merely acting as a distributor for DVD titles that TOEI
will produce for North American release.

was named Pioneer
, it distributed Bandai and Viz
DVDs to North American retailers, its deal with Toei
is very much the same.Chad Kime
to ICv2, "This would naturally exclude the titles that Toei
Japan may license to other U.S. companies."
