MIPCOM, "the world's audiovisual content market," will have several companies pitching their anime properties to international buyers and distributors during the October 13–17 event at Cannes, France. The American production company 4Kids Entertainment will be presenting the 79 episodes of Dinosaur King and its Yokuryū Densetsu sequel as well as the 52 planned episodes of Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's (pictured at right).
The Japanese animation company TMS Entertainment will showcase Card Live-R (Live On Cardliver Kakeru, pictured at left, 51 eps.), ItaKiss (Itazura na Kiss, 25 eps.), Scarecrowman (26 eps.), Mini Moo Moo (Mameushi-kun, 26 eps.), and Zenryoku Rabbits (Zenryoku Usagi, 26 eps.).
