VIZ Media Europe SAS has been renamed Crunchyroll SAS.
WarnerMedia’s Crunchyroll streaming service closed a deal with the anime publisher on 4th December, bringing the two companies together under the same brand.
John Easum has been appointed head of Crunchyroll EMEA. “Now that we are under the Crunchyroll brand, I am even more excited to be given the opportunity to lead a very talented team that is uniquely positioned to grow the passion and engagement of anime and manga across the EMEA region,” he said.
“We’ve admired VIZ Media Europe Group’s expertise in reaching and delivering quality experiences to anime and manga fans for many years”, added Crunchyroll head of international Brady McCollum.
“Together, our teams represent a stronger, global front and will be focused on finding ways to engage with current fans in meaningful ways, while also creating new fans along the way.”
