News Japanese/U.S. Joint Licensing Venture Formed
posted on 2012-09-09 09:42 EDT
Entertainment Licensing Associates, a Los Angeles-based branding and licensing agency, formed a joint venture with Tokyo-based Kaliya to help Japanese content owners expand their reach outside of Asia. The two companies intend to acquire, develop, and license Japanese intellectual property for introduction in North America and worldwide. The acquisitions will include films, anime, manga, video games, and toys.
The founder and president of ELA, Dan Kletzky, has worked with Kei Hiroki, the head of Kaliya, for more than 10 years at Konami Digital Entertainment and Lucent Pictures.

Ultimately Missions of Love still reads like a sexy book for middle schoolers. Yukina is far from a likeable heroine, neither Shigure nor Akira come off as particularly desirable male leads, and the less savory elements of the story detract from its romance components.
Dengeki Daisy began as a romance with some computer crimes thrown in and has morphed into an action story with some romance thrown in. What remains true, however, is that Kyousuke Motomi has created an interesting, fun story with memorable characters who do their best, whether it's for good or ill.
Not much Kaname, but effective new villains, great art, a solid dub, and a healthy set of extras highlight darker, more intense, and more graphic content. A very strong start for the third FMP series.
