The first project to be developed for the new anime arm will be a 12×30’ series based on Kei Azumi’s novel and manga series Tsukimichi – Moonlit Fantasy.

The series will be produced by C2C Studios, with Nippon TV handling all international distribution rights.

“For many years, anime has been a forte of Nippon TV and we have been producing hit anime series such as Lupin the 3rd, Death Note, Hunter X Hunter and many more,” said Keiichi Sawa, operating officer and president of business development for Nippon TV.

“But now the time is ideal for us to create a department solely focused on anime, as this genre is loved by so many around the world. We will be producing and distributing coveted anime series domestically as well as internationally, and Kako Kuwahara is the ideal executive to head up this department.”
