This is Nishide from ABC Animation.
In July 2016, we started the business as an Animation Program Planning Company in the Asahi Broadcasting Group Holdings Corporation.
Besides the “Pretty Cure” Series broadcasting on 8:30 am every Sunday and the late-night animation broadcasting, which have been supported by many viewers across the country for many years, we did some works on planning and production to secondary use of anime programs / movies for young adults.
The “Pretty Cure” Series has celebrated its 15th anniversary with this year's “HUG!”. In addition, there are 24 theatrical movie series in the past 15 years. I want to keep making good kids animation that will remain in the hearts of children.
In addition, regarding the late-night animation investment business, we participated in programs planning and productions, broadcasting on ABC TV, and offering them to domestic and overseas animation fans through overseas distribution and commercialization. And we received a lot of supports.
This year, the 3rd established year for ABC Animation, we aim to cover all business areas of animation content. We will also challenge things new. In particular, I would like to focus on the production of global kids content and the cultivation of producers who will be responsible for it.
As a member of the Asahi Broadcasting Group Holdings Corporation, we aim to make a leap forward to become a content company that is loved by viewers around the world, and we want to be a company where every employee can contribute to the society by contents producing.
