Sony Gets A Piece Of Funimation

Sony Pictures has purchased a good portion of Funimation. Sony brought a piece of the company at 95 percent with US$143 million. No the buy still has to go through a process so we will have to wait and see how this goes. Here is the official statement from Sony.

“Around the world, Sony’s networks have been major players in the anime space for nearly two decades, and in more recent years we have rapidly increased our networks’ over-the-top and digital offerings to consumers. With the acquisition of Funimation, the combined IP of Animax, Kids Station and Funimation allows us to deliver the best anime to fans across all screens and platforms”Andy Kaplan, president of Worldwide Networks at Sony Pictures Television
