What Is the Status of Pony Canyon USA?

The Fandom Post has posted an article titled, “Is Pony Canyon USA Dead?

According to their report, the site for the company has gone offline in a way that’s similar to other Japanese designated sites do when they’re being phased out. It was also noted that the company’s Twitter feed was last updated on December 25, 2017. While their Twitter feed was never very busy, it was updated every few days, so nearly two weeks of silence is unusual. The company’s Facebook page is still active, but was last active on Decembr 24, 2017.

Pony Canyon USA handled North American distribution for the following series:

  • Clean Freak! Aoyama kun
  • Cute High Earth Defense Club Love!
  • Cute High Earth Defense Club Love! Love!
  • Days
  • Denkigai no Honya-san
  • Etotama
  • Garakowa: Restore the World
  • Kuromukuro
  • Lance N’ Masques
  • The Lost Village
  • Rokka: Braves of the Six Flowers
  • Sound! Euphonium
  • Yuki Yuna is a Hero

Readers, do you have any thoughts about the potential demise of Pony Canyon USA or about the company in general? Feel free to share in the comments!

    I believe this is the first time we’ve talked, so…hi!

    As a fan of Boueibu (Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE!) as well as Rokka to a lesser extent, it’s worrying to see where this will go. Admittedly, I’m outside the strike range and the affected shows will probably go back to Crunchyroll or my local sublicensor, so I’m not complaining there…but not having a complete disc release is disappointing for someone who’s supported the series through both money and streaming in the past.
