Anime Limited Acquired by Plaion Pictures • Anime UK News

October 18, 2022

Please note that this is a breaking news story that will be updated as more information becomes available.

German-language film magazine Blickpunkt:film has today published an article reporting that Plaion Pictures, a film division owned by the Plaion Group, has brought Anime Limited for an undisclosed sum, including both the UK and French divisions. Plaion Group is owned by Embracer, formerly known as Koch Media.

A machine-translated excerpt of the article reads:

The indie label Plaion Pictures, the film division of the Plaion Group, has acquired 100 per cent of the shares in British Anime Ltd. With the takeover, Plaion says it wants to expand its position as a pan-European key player in the marketing and distribution of Japanese pop art content.

Anime Ltd., with headquarters in Glasgow and offices in Paris and San Francisco, specialises in the marketing of Japanese animated films and series, soundtracks and merchandise products in Great Britain, France and the USA.

Stefan Kapelari, Managing Director Plaion Pictures: “We are very pleased to welcome the team from Anime Ltd. to our group. By joining forces, we will further expand our role as a key player in the marketing and distribution of Japanese pop art content. Together we will become the pan-European publisher that can offer our Japanese partners a 360-degree service from marketing to distribution on all relevant channels.”

Jochen Walter, Managing Director Plaion Pictures, added: “I am particularly pleased that with this move our Plaion Pictures team in the UK is growing and we now also have a location in France. With the support of Anime Ltd, we will also continue to grow our SVOD channel Aniverse. Our entire anime team extends a warm welcome to our new colleagues!”

Anime Limited have not yet officially commented, so full details are currently thin in the ground. However, we have reached out and will update if and when an official announcement is released.
