Viz Media Buys Bakuman UK Rights

VizMedia Europe has acquired the rights over the Bakuman franchise’s distribution in the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Germany, Portugal and Spain. The contract covers a license over DVD, Blu-ray Disk, VOD, TV anime and merchandising. Bakuman is the latest hitby Death Note creators Takeshi Obata and Tsugumi Ohba.

Realistic, creative, charming and extremely fun are the four qualities that represent the inner soul of Bakuman. Unlike its huge predecessor, the thrilling mystery of the insane Death Note that takes people’s lives just by their names and faces, this story enchants with its easygoing-ness and amusing sense of humour. There is also a pinch of romance, a teaspoon of ambition and quite a big cup of enemy particles – the perfect ingredients for a good shounen.

Congratulations to Obata-san and Ohba-san! They deserve all the praise they get…and all the extra proceeds.

P.S. Shinigami-sama – I just love the last phrase in the article ;)
