Added DiffLines:

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Applies to the titles that have not yet been rescued. Heck, even some titles that ''were'' rescued, like ''Anime/MakaiSenkiDisgaea'', aren't completely safe.


Added DiffLines:

* NoDubForYou: Mostly averted with their anime catalog as the majority of their titles were dubbed even when the company was in financial trouble (though some shows got really cheap dubs). However, their live action catalog plays this trope straight.


Added DiffLines:

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Their attempted alliance with Creator/ADVFilms.

Geneon Entertainment was one of the world's major anime producers and distributors. The birth and death of their North American division illustrates the instability and unpredictability that sometimes plagues the American anime industry.

They were founded in 1993, when Japanese technology giant Pioneer Electronics decided to start an entertainment division in both Japan and America. While Pioneer Entertainment distributed tapes and UsefulNotes/{{LaserDisc}}s in a variety of genres, from {{music}} to {{documentar|y}}ies, the company became best known as an anime producer and distributor. The company also became a major [=DVD=] supplier when the format became available. Titles first released during the Pioneer years included ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'', ''Anime/SerialExperimentsLain'', ''Anime/LastExile'' and '' Manga/{{Trigun}}''. They also did distribution for other companies early on, such as Creator/FUNimation, Creator/VizMedia, Creator/{{Toei}} USA, and [[Creator/BandaiEntertainment Bandai Visual]].

In 2009, Website/AnimeNewsNetwork did an excellent [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/anncast/2009-12-03 podcast]] in which former Geneon USA executive Chad Kime talks about the reasons for Geneon America's decline; these include anime series that failed (''Anime/HeatGuyJ'' cost as much as ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist'' but sold a fraction), budgeting for titles they did not own, and licensing titles because the previous titles didn't make money.
