Diamond Comic to Distribute Japanese Action Figures and Toys Based on VIZ Media Properties in North America
Diamond Comic Distributors and VIZ Media, LLC have reached an agreement that will distribute Japanese merchandise based on the company’s highly sought after properties in North America for the first time, including products based on the commercially successful and acclaimed titles NARUTO, BLEACH, TIGER & BUNNY, BERSERK, DEATH NOTE, and INUYASHA. Diamond Comic Distributors will carry a broad selection of action figures, toys, and collectibles from licensed VIZ Media titles, previously unavailable outside of Japan due to licensing restrictions.
“From the top entertainment districts of Tokyo’s Akihabara to Harajuku and beyond, many great licensed products from the top anime and manga brands will now be available for fans to purchase outside of Japan,” said John Parker, Diamond’s VP - New Business Development. “We are excited by the potential and even more thrilled to introduce some of the best-of-Japan merchandise to North American consumers.”
The new merchandise will be available for pre-order in future issues of Diamond’s PREVIEWS catalog. To pre-order the merchandise, contact your local retailer, or find a comic shop near you at www.comicshoplocator.com or call 1-888-comicbook. Retailers interested in purchasing VIZ Media’s merchandise are encouraged to contact Diamond’s New Accounts Department at email@example.com or via phone at 800-45-COMIC.
