    Talking about distributing shows for Funimation and working with them on more stuff. 31 titles coming to AnimeLab soon thanks to their relationship. Calls each other 'cousins' because of the Sony situation

    15 titles coming to cinemas in Aus over the next 12 months

    Konosuba rights are complicated with AnimeLab holding exclusive Aus streaming rights and Crunchyroll exclusively hosting the dub. Sly hopes to see a home video release someday, has no idea what the plans in the U.S. are

    Some more elaboration: http://madboards.madman.com.au/viewt...=899952#899952

    None. We are also now majority owned by Aniplex which is a division of Sony Music Japan, not Sony Pictures which is who owns Funimation. We're like distant cousins. All of our existing licenses and how we license moving forward doesn't change, we are still Madman and we are not changing our name to Aniplex. The branding stays.

    Cinema distribution remains the same, we assess all movies that get released if they are viable to do so and whether if we are able to obtain a license for it. Which films, in particular, are you referring to, as we have released many anime films in cinemas around 1 a month over the last few years?

    Keeping in mind the key word here is viable. Not every film is a viable release if we do not believe enough of an audience will go to see a film it is not really worthwhile to spend extra effort to chase after a title, pay money to license it and then set a distribution plan. We have to prove to cinemas that certain titles are worthwhile doing and this is not always easy, I'd like to think that we have done a lot to expand the availability of content . We have great slate of films coming up including Fate/Stay Night Heaven's Feel 2, Love Live! Sunshine!! and more. Not to mention we just did Dragon Ball Super at over 170 locations in our biggest release of an anime film ever in Australia history.

    The Madman brand is still sticking around.

    Director's cut: MacKenzie's Five V Capital sells Madman anime arm to Sony

    Madman Media, the film distribution and production group backed by Adrian MacKenzie's private equity firm Five V Capital, is in a position of "chikara" (that's Japanese for power) after selling one of its divisions in a $35 million deal.

    It is understood Madman's sold its anime unit to Aniplex, which is another anime business owned by entertainment giant Sony.

    It appears to be a good outcome for Madman - and its owner Five V, which invested and oversees the company alongside former media executives Brett Chenoweth and Charbel Nader.

    The shareholders paid $21 million for Madman about four years ago - and now they have sold its anime unit, which is about one-third of the overall Madman business, for $35 million.

    No doubt Madman's owners are hoping their next big moment could come on February 24, when the annual Academy Awards are held. The company's traditional film distribution business has five films nominated for an Oscar, including Mirai, Free Solo, Vasarhelyi, Minding the Gap and Capernaum.

    It comes as other film distributors are going through a tough time. Global distributor eOne shut its business in Australia, while Village Roadshow's issues are well documented.

    The other part of Madman's focus is streaming - which is something of a hedge against the traditional distribution business. Madman is building up two streaming businesses; DocPlay and Garage.

    Lu Over The Wall was classified by the Aus Classification Board with Half Symbolic Films as the applicant. After searching for them, I found their website and a post announcing they acquired Lu and Night is Short, Walk on Girl with plans for theatrical release in Australia early 2019.

    The post was made back in April but the company seems to be so small they don't even seem to have any social media accounts or reach, hence the late discovery.
