Kadokawa Corporation and Right Stuf, Inc. Announce Partnership To Sell Licensed Animation Goods In The US and Canada
Grimes, IA, January 08, 2020 — One of Japan's leading publishing companies, Kadokawa Corporation, and anime distributor Right Stuf, Inc. announced their partnership to import licensed animation goods from Japan to sell to customers in the US and Canada.
As anime continues to increase in popularity in North America, the ever-increasing demand for high quality merchandise goods, figures, collectibles, and more has not been met with enough options to satisfy customer needs.
“With new programming each season, customers have been unable to access goods from the latest shows. This is a great opportunity to connect fans with the products they’ve been looking for,” said Right Stuf, Inc. President Shawne Kleckner. “We’re happy to partner with Kadokawa to fill that void.”
"We are very excited to see Right Stuf carrying our products," said Teruyoshi Andou, Deputy Director of the IP Strategy Division at Kadokawa. "This agreement allows us to reach even more fans in North America and should enable customers to get their hands on our latest product releases faster than ever before."
