New Anime Licensee Brings Haruhi to Russia, Baltics

posted on by Mikhail Koulikov
Reanimedia also plans Russian release of Pet Shop of Horrors

Newly launched distributor Reanimedia, which seeks to bring "anime releases that approach Japanese standards" to Russia, the Baltic states, and several other countries of the former Soviet Union, has announced its first licenses. By the end of the year, it plans to release Pet Shop of Horrors, while the first volume of a Russian-language dub of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya is scheduled for early 2008. Each of the four volumes will also carry the original Japanese track, as well as up to an hour of bonus materials.

In addition, Reanimedia has bought out XL Media, another leading Russian anime distributor whose titles include Serial Experiments Lain, Wolf's Rain, and The Place Promised in Our Early Days. Consolidation between the two companies is expected to finish by February of 2008.
