Hong Kong-based company Medialink on Tuesday announced that it has attained rights to distribute “Tsukimichi: Moonlit Fantasy” and “Joran: The Princess of Snow and Blood” throughout Asia (except Korea.)
The company said in a press release that through its own branded channel Ani-One, and other distributors such as Crunchyroll, and Aniplus network, the series will be distributed in approximately 200 markets.
“We look forward to strengthening the partnership with Nippon TV, and enhance our distribution to reach as many anime fans as we can in Asia markets through the networks of Medialink and our own Ani-One platforms,” said Lovinia Chiu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Medialink Group.
Last February 1, Nippon TV announced that it had secured key sales for the worldwide distribution for Tsukimichi -Moonlit Fantasy-
Tsukimichi -Moonlit Fantasy is based from an award-winning novel and manga with the same title, and written by Kei Azumi. This series follows a high school student summoned to another world and challenged by the forces he finds there.
Meanwhile, “Joran the Princess of Snow and Blood” is a co-production with Hulu in Japan, Bakken Record, Bushiroad Move, Bushiroad Music and Dentsu.
Nippon TV describes the series as follows:
The year is 1931. Prince Tokugawa Yoshinobu is 94 years old and holds absolute control over Japan. Remnants of the Meiji era’s culture can still be seen, but as scientific technology and Japanese esoteric cosmology Onmyodo also develop, a sense of modernity exudes. Yet lurking in the shadows is Kuchinawa, a dissident group planning the assassination of the prince, and effectively the fall of the regime. Tasked to extinguish these dissidents is Nue, the government’s secret executioner group. Sawa Yukimura, who works for this organization, suffered from an early age at the hands of Janome, the Kuchinawa boss. Her entire family was murdered, and she dedicates her life to avenging their death.
