According to Asahi Newspaper, Innovation Network Corporation of Japan (INCJ) has invested six billion yen ($77 million) in the establishment of a new company "All Nippon Entertainment Works". The company will acquire film rights of Japanese anime and toys and produce movies in Hollywood with producers in the US. INCJ plans to acquire ten film rights and an investment of three billion yen in the first three years.

INCJ is an investment corporation funded by Japanese government and Development Bank of Japan. The business of INCJ is supervised by Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.

So we can be expecting some Anime Adaptations or, just films? Either way, hopefully they'll be of high-quality, but I have my doubts.

It's not clearly stated in the article, but they are talking about live action films based on anime, I guess.

I don't care what they're trying to do for the Anime industry, it'll bring more bad than good...

despite all the negative comments I am very interested to see were this goes, and if it will even be more than a bunch of straight to DVD B-movies.

I think this is actually a great idea. The more exposure to the world the more funding, the more good animes really...

I think they are trying to infiltrate the Western Industry that they will get the Rights to air all Japanese Movies in America. Meaning that every Animé & Movies will get to pass in their hands before they air it in America, instead of just selling the license to an American Company that will air it; they will be the ones to air it. Also it would increase the visibility of Animé merchandise on the market of America. That's what I think expanding the scope of Animé around the world.

This. If they produce more live-action films based on anime (assuming they're not Dragonball Evolution) there will be more interest and hopefully more sales, which is a good thing.
