Overseas IP Business
Spreading Manga all across the Globe.
The shelves in Japanese bookstores are overflowing with hundreds, thousands of different Manga titles. However, there are many places in the world that Manga haven’t reached, yet. We are helping exciting stories and fascinating characters to cross borders and spread throughout the world. In order to do so, we are promoting various initiatives in a number of countries, from electronic distribution, to live-action realization of the source material, etc.
Easy and Secure Licensing.
Copyright processing in Japan isn’t making a lot of progress – this is especially true of old content. There have been cases when we had to abandon projects like overseas distribution, live-action realization, use of an IP in advertisement etc., even in the case of high-quality content, simply because the wereabouts of the copyright holder could not be determined. ‘Dejima’ is a site dedicated towards organizing copyright of Japanese content. If content is registered with ‘Dejima’, it means there is a direct connection to the author and an interview regarding the use of the copyrighted material has taken place. Through this site, we will promote the safe and secure use of copyrighted works and the use of IPs.
Increase your Exposure by using Anime ＆ Manga Characters in Ad Creatives
We at DoubleL will use the relations we have built with the various IP holders as well as our database encompassing Anime & Manga works from the 1960s to the present, to choose a fitting IP suitable for the client’s marketing activity and branding, as well as come up with story and content marketing ideas.
Enjoy new Anime ＆ Manga.
It is said that we live at a time when ‘hands-on experience’ is most important. In order to enjoy Anime & Manga to the fullest, we believe it is not enough to simply provide the content. We will propose, plan and execute additional ways to enjoy Anime & Manga other than just reading / watching – cosplay being one prime example of such an activity. Specifically, we are planning a variety of events, like talkshows with the creator(s), autograph sessions and more.
Sending Anime ＆ Manga Ambassadors throughout the World
Especially in the case of foreign fans, there aren’t many opportunities to experience first-hand the skill that goes into creating a Manga. On the other hand, creators can draw renewed inspiration from having direct contact with their foreign fans. We are sending first-rate Japanese creators to various events such as Comic-cons all around the world, in order to further advance Japanese contents.
