Anime database website MyAnimeList announced on Thursday that Japanese publishing companies Kodansha, Shueisha, and Shogakukan will invest in MyAnimeList through a third-party allotment. MyAnimeList plans to issue new shares, increasing its capital by a total of 1,200 million yen (about US$11.33 million). The companies, together with MyAnimeList parent company Media Do, will implement a third-party allotment and underwrite half of this amount.
MyAnimeList plans to invest the funds obtained from the third-party allotment to accelerate expansion of its platform, focusing on accessibility for new and returning users, promoting information exchange, increasing server robustness, and advancing interconnection between fans and businesses. The company's immediate plans to achieve these goals include implementing infrastructure changes to increase speed and support advanced UI/UX features, multi-language support for databases and user lists, iOS and Android application improvements such as dark mode and social functions, and upgraded user communication tool enhancements for increased information sharing.

Old Man Dream: ...many later Macross anime outside Japan because that would profit Harmony Gold. Macross was one of three anime titles used by HG in the 1980s to edit together the popular Robotech series popular with fans during that time. Under this deal...

Old Man Dream: ...later titles in the Macross franchise can finally come stateside with all involved parties finally coming to a truce over how to handle things with the Macross trademark and all later anime in the franchise associated with it.

Taka: I see. A global release will benefit it. Gundam did pretty good. The only few franchises that are only popular in Japan but not popular in the west - Yokai Watch comes to mind.
