Aniplex USA (AKA Aniplex of America) is the American division of the Japanese anime and music producing company Aniplex. It was established in 2005 and it recently began to release more and more titles, some of them being expensive Japanese import Blu-rays. It's also produced several English dubs in association with Bang Zoom! Entertainment.

Titles distributed by Aniplex USA: "*" = has a dub

Aniplex USA provides examples of:

  • Darker and Edgier: Aniplex has released titles written by Gen Urobuchi.
  • Lighter and Softer: They released Your Lie in April, which is their first non-action series to get a dub.
  • Start My Own: In a departure for many Japanese production companies, Aniplex decided to form their own American branch in order to keep their Western distributions in-house. This resulted in Funimation losing the rights to several titles note  when their license expired and Aniplex didn't allow them to renew.
