An American anime licensor originally founded in 1990, its big claim to fame was ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' and ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}''. Now defunct, sadly.

Should be noted here that, as was a common practice when the company existed, they would re-score many of the animes they worked on, supposedly to make it more accessible to a American audience. This resulted in such mutilations as was done to ''Dominion: Tank Police''. If you have the DVD release, switch back and forth between Japanese and English soundtracks. It's almost two different shows.

Their divisions included "U.S. Manga Corps", "Software Sculptors", and "Anime 18", as well as a manga[=/=]comics division.
