VIZ MEDIA TO DEVELOP ORIGINAL ANIMATED KIDS SERIES GAKKIMALS

VIZ Media, LLC (VIZ Media),a premier company in the field of publishing, animation distribution, and global entertainment licensing, has acquired the production and licensing rights to develop an original animated series based on the Japanese children’s property, GAKKIMALS.
The series will be produced under license from ShoPro, a subsidiary of three of Japan’s largest publishing houses, Shogakukan Inc., Shueisha Inc. and Hakusensha Inc., that focuses on licensing and merchandising the properties owned by Shogakukan Inc. GAKKIMALS is based on an original concept created by Japanese production duo, PecanNuts.
Welcome to the wonderful adventures of the GAKKIMALS, where madcap mash-ups of musical instruments and animals combine to bring happiness and harmony to their fun-filled world.
“The acquisition of GAKKIMALS represents an important step in our initiative to develop new and engaging global content in partnership with our creative partners in Japan,” says Brad Woods, CMO, VIZ Media. “GAKKIMALS is a truly unique children’s property that combines the evergreen appeal of music and animals into a vibrant environment that inspires early childhood learning with a fun cast of endearing characters. We look forward to working closely with our partners at ShoPro to develop this exciting new show.”
