VIZ Opens Online Hub for Europe Partners

VIZ Media Europe has launched a new business-to-business web site to manage the licensing, marketing and distribution of its brands.

The site, www.vizeurope.com, will connect the company’s partners with each other and keep them up to date on developments with the company’s anime, manga, DVD and merchandising products. Among VIZ’s most popular current titles are Bleach, Death Note, Naruto, Inuyasha and Zoids Genesis.

The site serves France, Spain, Italy, Germany and the United Kingdom, with more markets expected to be added in the future.

The site was developed with web design communications agency Megalo(s).

‘The site will serve as a very important communication tool for VIZ Media Europe, and it will greatly enhance our ability to build synergy and promotional relationships with all of our business partners,’ says John Easum, president of VME.
