Sony Buys Holding Company Group 1200 Media, Parent To FunimationNow & Funimation

Otaku Culture is really becoming quiet valuable to mega-corporations. Just yesterday we reported the unfortunate news of Daisuki closing. Today we celebrate a victory for otaku culture, Sony Corp. has agreed to purchase the parent corporation to Funimation, Group 1200 Media. The price tag was a whopping $143 Million USD. Not too bad of a sale for Gen & Cindy Fukunaga and their investors. Don’t you remember?

Not-So-Popular Streaming Service “Daisuki” Shutting Down October

Daisuki Closing Down

It’s kind of surprising that Japanese companies couldn’t win against international and popular streaming services like FunimationNow and Crunchyroll. I say this because “Daisuki.net” had the backing of several recognizable and powerful animation studios such as Toei Animation, Aniplex, Sunrise and even a government fund with the sole purpose of distributing Japanese pop culture around the world.

They did try. While Daisuki may have been late to the streaming game the backing of a handful of power players was suppose to make up for it. The streaming service partnered with Tokyo Otaku Mode and launched their own white-label store. They also hustled games in the form of ads  from Aniplex and Bandai Namco. They added a social feature that would allow users to “list” their anime.

The library is another topic… They had a mixture of classics, shared-licenses and a few exclusives but nothing too special that Crunchyroll and FunimationNow didn’t already acquire.

Daisuki will be missed. Read More to read the official message from the streaming company.
