posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
CyberAgent, the parent company of game developer Cygames and streaming service company AbemaTV, announced more details on Friday for the first project for its CAAnimation label.
The company's first project will be a multimedia project that will include anime, video games, music, and several other forms of entertainment. CAAnimation is partnering with video content company Avex Pictures, music creator group Elements Garden (Uta no Prince-sama, Senki Zesshō Symphogear franchises), anime studio Doga Kobo (Himouto! Umaru-chan, Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun, The Helpful Fox Senko-san), and game developer Wonder Planet (Jump Puchi Heroes, Crash Fever smartphone games) for the project.
The companies plan to launch the project in 2020.
CyberAgent founded the CAAnimation label last October. CAAnimation focuses on producing original anime, as well as producing possible game adaptations (developed by other CyberAgent subsidiary companies) of those original anime projects. The company will coordinate with AbemaTV for its original anime content.
Masaya Ochiai is the label's executive producer, while Hiroyuki Tanaka (Yuri!! on Ice, Wake Up, Girls!) is the general producer.
CyberAgent and Cygames already established the CA-Cygames Anime Fund in June 2017. The fund has allowed both companies to invest in anime production committees, acquire streaming rights, and game adaptation rights.
