Crash Media Group is proud to announce that at LIMA 2005, the first true anime co production between an American and Japanese company, Shiden will be on display for the international licensing community. Shiden is the brainchild of veteran anime pioneer Kimio Ikeda (producer of such mega-hits as Astro Boy, Speed Racer, and Gatchaman/Battle of the Planets) with an all star production team behind it such as Animation Development and Character Design by both Takao Kozai, Kenichi Kozai (Steamboy, Ghost in the Shell: Innocence, and Blood +) and 3D CGI modeling by Toshihiro Nagao (Initial-D, Urusei Yatsura), Shiden is set to wow audiences around the world in 2006 and 2007. Best described as a high-octane modern gothic anime adventure, the 26 episode series is currently in production in Japan.

The Crash Media Group “switches gears” in anime from fast cars of the future the gods and deities of the ancient world in OLYMPUS GUARDIAN, the 39 half hour anime series set to kick off on DVD early in 2006. Based on Greek and Roman mythology, the celebrated cannon of Zeus, Athena, Hercules, Medusa, and many other Gods, Goddesses, Titans and Mortals are presented in a cutting edge anime style for a modern audience. With an additional theatrical feature and a proven merchandising program behind it, OLYMPUS GUARDIAN is sure to be the envy of all other anime fans!

Moving from two to three dimensions, the Crash Media Group has made history yet again by being the first company to offer martial arts content for the Sony PSP. With one of the largest libraries of martial arts films in North America, The Crash Media Group moves martial arts action in to the American spotlight in their branded Crash Masters line, with content provider agreements with MTV2 and Threshold Entertainment's Black Belt TV.

The final phase of the Crash Media Group's foray into the future is Talking Manga. Using t-ink “thinking ink” technology (recently featured in Forbes Magazine) Crash Media Group and corporate partner AGE Inc will unveil the world's only Talking Manga, which will revolutionize the way anime and Manga. Anime, and Asian PoP-Culture products are consumed in the world market.
