VIZ Media is an anime and manga distribution company, co-owned by Japanese publishers Shogakukan, its licensing division Shogakukan Productions ([=ShoPro=] for short) and Shueisha. It is a primary distributor of many popular {{shonen}}-oriented manga series (such as ''Manga/DragonBall'', ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' and ''Manga/DeathNote''), which have also been serialized in Shueisha's ''Weekly ShonenJump'' manga anthology. It currently publishes an American version of that monthly.

From 2005-09, VIZ also published ''Shojo Beat'', a monthly shojo manga anthology. The folks at Viz also managed to achieve linguistic immortality by coining the term [[TheGlomp "glomp"]] for use as a sound effect in their translations of ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' and ''UruseiYatsura''.

Not, repeat ''not'', to be confused with British humour anthology comic ''ComicBook/{{Viz}}''.
