This is the place to report duplicate company names. You have to make sure that they are really different companies. It's not because 2 companies have similar names that they are in fact the same. For example, Bandai Visual and Bandai Entertainment are two different companies.

previous duplicate company reports are here

"RTL 2 Television" (animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/company.php?id=2069)
and "RTL2" (animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/company.php?id=1206) are the same company/TV station and their official name is "RTL II Fernsehen GmbH & Co. KG" as seen here: http://www.rtl2.de/​impressum.​html

Tastunoko Pro (#1719, misspelled)
Tatsunoko (#286)
Tatsunoko Color Center (#639)
Tatsunoko Laboratory (#3052)
Tatsunoko Production (#591)

#286 has most entries, but according to the official company profile, the full name should be "Tatsunoko Productions". "Tatsunoko Production" and "Tatsunoko Pro." also appear in the title banner, so I'd suggest use #591 as the main entry.

In this case, I think it is worth noting that the official name of the company is "Animaze.. iNC" and that is the way it is always listed in credits. "Animaze" is a simplified way that most fans refer to it as, but I don't think it's ever actually credited as such.

I suggested to increase the capacity of information for Companies because of examples like Geneon and Pioneer. In addition to new companies, existing companies change names, merge, or end their business.

I have some different opinions. Avex is a large company, and anime / music production are just parts of their business. It would be odd if we merge all following companies,

Sony
Sony Computer Entertainment
Sony magazines Inc.
Sony Music Enterainment (Japan) Inc.
Sony Music Entertainment
Sony PCL, Inc.
Sony Pictures (Japan)
Sony Pictures Entertainment
Sony Pictures International
Sony Pictures Studios
Sony Pictures Television International

into one "Sony." Some of them are redundant, though.

Most people say or think Tatsunoko Pro, so that could be used to align the rest, or just Tatsunoko Productions.

Pierrot
Pierrot Project
Studio Piero
Studio Pierrot

According to the official company profile page, the full title of the company should be "Pierrot Co., Ltd." (株式会社ぴえろ), but since it usually refers itself simply as "Pierrot" (ぴえろ), we can just use #118 as its main title.
