I am excited about the opportunities for growth that this deal represents.,” says Andrew Partridge, MD and co-founder of Anime Ltd.

I look forward to being able to further build up our business and unfold Anime Ltd.’s full potential to make Japanese pop culture content even more popular in Europe and the world,” says Cedric Littardi, co-founder and chairman of the board at Anime Ltd.
