Kadokawa USA Announces Six New Licenses (Updated)

posted on by Mikhail Koulikov
Rental Magica, Spice and Wolf, Junjou Romantica, more confirmed for U.S. release; no distributor named yet

At their panel, the industry representatives from Kadokawa USA announced that their company now holds the North American licenses to the anime series Junjou Romantica, Spice and Wolf, Rental Magica, My Heartfelt Sympathy, Ninomiya-kun, H2O ~Footprints in the Sand~, and Coo: Our Guardian (Wagaya no Oinari-sama). Last month, Kadokawa USA requested that the AnimeSuki.com website remove links to the unauthorized fansubs of all six of these series, along with five others.

Generally, Kadokawa USA does not actually distribute anime in North America directly, but partners with other, more established companies. No specific distributor for any of the six series has been named yet.

Updated. The original Japanese title of Coo: Our Guardian is Wagaya no Oinari-sama, and it was also included in Kadokawa USA's cease-and-desist letter to AnimeSuki.
