Previous entry

Marvelous Entertainment is in trouble.

Just as I predicted, more anime studios or related industry is going down after demise of GONZO in wake of global economy recession. This time is Marvelous Entertainment, famous for Gunslinger Girl, School Days, Zipang, Mushishi franchise and Harvest Moon game series. The company is asking for 20 voluntary retirements with special severance package which coming to effect around end of April 2009.

The production company expects USD 13 million loss; already cull down on bonuses, benefits and PR campaigns as the result. With this announcement, things certainly look bad for them.

The gloom continues.
