Anime-Planet.com Partners with Viki to Provide Global Anime Video Integration

Apr 10th 2014
SEATTLE Anime-Planet, the world's first and most reputable recommendation resource for anime and manga, has partnered with Viki to bring the company's full set of global, unique anime content to Anime-Planet.

Through this partnership, users can watch Viki's unique anime offerings from their homes across the globe on Anime-Planet, viewable in dozens of subtitled languages, translated by fans, for fans. Community members can also opt-in to have their Anime-Planet watch lists automatically updated when viewing videos on the site.

This new batch of video content adds to the over 22,000 legal streaming videos already available on Anime-Planet, a site that has grown to become a leading, industry-supported destination for recommendations and legal streaming video.

Kim Cameron, CEO and founder of Anime-Planet, said the partnership came about because of a mutual interest to showcase Viki's streaming content and increase awareness of the company's crowd sourced subtitling platform.

"We're thrilled to bring Viki's content to the Anime-Planet community. Viki's community-driven platform for subtitles is a fantastic way for anime fans to get involved by helping translate titles they love in their core languages, which in turn supports the industry and brings even more anime content to the masses. We're excited for our users to become involved in this movement while having greater access to legal anime online."

Tammy H. Nam, CMO and General Manager of Viki Inc, said the following:

"Viki is excited to bring our anime catalog to Anime-Planet, where anime fans can leverage thousands of quality recommendations to decide what to watch next. We're looking forward to showcasing our anime titles, gaining new visibility for our subtitling platform, and building a stronger anime community between our two sites."
