Geneon USA Withdraws From Distribution - Anime (527 words)
Geneon Entertainment, Inc., a Japanese anime and distribution enterprise, was previously known as Pioneer Entertainment.
On October 6, 2007, Eiji Orii, Geneon Entertainment (USA)'s President and CEO, wrote a letter to the fans to address concerns and issues e-mailed to the company and posted to various internet messageboards.
While Geneon may not have been the biggest North American anime distributor (I would give that "title" to ADV Films), I believe that Geneon's withdrawal from North American distribution is going to hurt the U.S. anime industry.
