4Kids Plans Sale of Major Yu-Gi-Oh! Assets to Firm Tied to Saban
Documents filed to the US Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York on Tuesday have revealed that North American anime distributor and Yu-Gi-Oh! anime licensee 4Kids plans to sell what they describe as "substantially all of [their] Yu-Gi-Oh!-related assets" to KidsCo Media Ventures LLC, a company that was incorporated on April 4, 2012, for ten million dollars. While KidsCo is incorporated in Delaware, the address listed in the documents for the company is identical to the address for the Saban Capital Group, an investment firm whose subsidiaries own the Power Rangers franchise and others, and contact emails listed for the company are also tied to the "saban.com" domain name. As part of the bankruptcy proceedings, an auction will be held for these assets if a qualified bidder appears, but as a "stalking horse bidder," KidsCo will enjoy bidding protections such as a fee that must be paid to them by a winning bidder.

The primary asset that will be acquired in the deal is what the documents refer to as the "Yu-Gi-Oh! Business," which is defined as "business relating to and commercial Use of Yu-Gi-Oh!, including the rights granted under the Yu-Gi-Oh! Grant Agreements, all other Purchased Assets relating to Yu-Gi-Oh!, The CW Block and [4Kids'] right to Use and profit from the foregoing and the Yu-Gi-Oh! Related Intellectual Property, the Yu-Gi-Oh! brand, and Yu-Gi-Oh! Productions."

The proposed sale also includes the sale of rights relating to the Dragon Ball Z series, including 52 episodes of the television show, as well as the company's rights relating to Dragon Ball Z Kai. The closing date for the sale described in the agreement is June 30, 2012

New Gundam Entertainment Complex's Tour Video Posted
Gundam Front Tokyo exhibits, shop opened with rebuilt life-size Gundam on Thursday

The video shows the newly rebuilt 1/1-scale Gundam statue, Gundam Front Tokyo's collection of plastic models from throughout the franchise's history, and the complex's 16-meter-wide (52-foot-wide) hemispherical dome theater. Souvenirs such as Gundam mugs and cookies are available in the Gundam Front Tokyo shop. Gundam lattes and drinks available at Diver City Tokyo's Gundam Café, "GunPla-Yaki" — pastry snacks in the size and shape of the very first Gundam plastic model kit — filled with bean paste, cream, or other fillings as well as extra-long churros named "Beam Churro" after the Gundam franchise's beam sabers also feature in the video.

The Mainichi Shimbun newspaper's Mantan TV website began streaming a 214-second video tour of the new Gundam Front Tokyo entertainment complex on Monday.

James Cameron says he'll only make 'Avatar' movies from now on. Apparently he's giving up the movie making business and devoting himself only to 'Avatar' making :huh:

http://insidemovies.ew.com/2012/05/07/j ... on-avatar/

"The success of James Cameron’s Avatar was inspiring: an indication that it is possible to launch a new saga in reboot-happy Hollywood. Now it looks like Avatar is all he will be working on for, well, the rest of his filmmaking career. In an interview with the The New York Times, Cameron explains that he has shut down the development arm of his production company and is no longer working on new projects:"
