GDH K.K., the parent company of Japanese animation powerhouse GONZO, has announced that it will produce an original program titled GON TUBE for broadcast on its official YouTube Japan channel, GONZO DOGA. The Japanese-language program launches today with clips from new GONZO animated titles.
Featuring Nana Kana, a voice actor duo consisting of Nana Inoue and Kanako Sakai, GON TUBE will be updated every Friday, providing the latest news and information on GONZO anime titles with staff and cast interviews, as well as updates on new and best-selling items at GONZO’s official online store, GONZO STYLE. GON TUBE, which will partially stream on GONZO MOBILE, will also create and distribute original merchandise.
GONZO DOGA (http://jp.youtube.com/user/GONZODOGA) launched on YouTube Japan in June of 2007, offering video content from a number of GDH group companies. By adding GON TUBE to the mix, the company hopes to drive traffic while cultivating a new consumer segment by bringing its video content and related merchandising together in one program.
