Pony Canyon is a Japanese anime and music producing company.

Established as a subsidiary of the Nippon Broadcasting System, Inc., the core company of the Fujisankei Communications Group, to pioneer the production and sales of car stereo music tapes in 1966. Canyon Records Inc. was founded in 1970 in accordance with the growing tape market for record shops. In 1987, Pony and Canyon Records merged to form a new company, PONY CANYON INC. Currently, PONY CANYON INC. dedicates itself to the development and nurture of varied types of entertainment software including production, manufacture, and distribution of diverse packaged software, as well as digital distribution services focusing on entertainment. One of the biggest producers/distributors of Blu-rays and DVDs in Japan, PONY CANYON has been involved in the production and Japanese releases of many hit anime titles including Attack on Titan, Fairy Tail, K-On!, Free! and so on.

In 2015, they launched their U.S. division, Ponycan USA, to bring some of the titles it worked on to America (kind of similar to how Aniplex does with Aniplex USA).
