Manga is the animation division of Palm Pictures, an audio-visual entertainment
company started in 1998 by Chris Blackwell, founder of the legendary Island
Records. Blackwell has described Manga as "an audio-visual record
label for the 21st century - an exciting new force in home entertainment,
filling the void between music and computer games." Prior to the
advent of Palm Pictures, Manga was an affiliate of Blackwell's family
of Island companies. Manga’s
Chief Executive Officer is Marvin Gleicher.
Manga Entertainment originally opened in London in 1991 and set the
stage for European distribution of anime. The U.S. arm debuted in July
1994 and quickly defined itself as an industry leader in America. Now
operating internationally from Chicago, Manga has become a prominent force
in distributing Japanese animation around the world outside of Asia.
Over the past 10 years, Manga has aggressively marketed Japanese animation
with great success releasing over 200 selections on VHS and DVD to retail
and rental stores. The company's revered anime catalog includes such renowned
titles as Ghost in the Shell, Ninja Scroll, Blood: the Last Vampire, Neon
Genesis Evangelion, Street Fighter Alpha, Perfect Blue, X, Macross Plus,
Dead Leaves and Read or Die. With continued focus on releasing high quality
anime titles over quantity, Manga films have been instrumental in making
the anime genre one of the most popular and growing entertainment trends
of the new millennium.
Manga has also cultivated the international theatrical market for Japanese
animated feature films. Since 1994, Manga has distributed critically acclaimed
and award winning anime features including The Wings of Honneamise, Patlabor
1 & 2, and the smash anime sci-fi feature Ghost in the Shell, bringing
top-quality anime to the big screen. Additional theatrical successes included
Satoshi Kon's animated psychological thriller Perfect Blue, Madhouse Studio's
X, and the highly popular, fully digital anime from Production IG Blood:
The Last Vampire.
Manga's Ghost in the Shell gained widespread acclaim and recognition
with critics and audiences alike. The film single-handedly pushed anime’s
popularity into the mainstream of pop culture. Ghost in the Shell won
top awards at The 1996 World Animation Festival for Best Theatrical Film
and for Best Director of a Theatrical Feature Film. When released to home
video, Ghost in the Shell was the first and only Japanese animated film
to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Top 40 Video Sales chart (August 24, 1996).
