Illumitoon Acquires Anime Series BT’X
Series Developed by Producers of Popular “Saint Seiya” Series
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — FORT WORTH, TEXAS — Illumitoon Entertainment announced that it has licensed the series “B’T X” and “B’T X Neo” for release in North America. Collectively, the 39 episodes mark the third acquisition for the newly-formed company, whose stated mission is to “focus on acquiring accessible anime for the US market.”
“Bt’X is a series we feel has enormous potential,” stated Barry Watson, Illumitoon’s President/CEO. “It’s a high-energy, exciting series which we think will really catch on.” The series involves mechanized beasts which battle under the directives of one unique individual — the blood donor for the beast. It was originated by the creator of the popular “Saint Seiya” series and is slated for US release next year.
The acquisition follows Illumitoon’s announcement of its license for Toei Animation’s popular series “Beet the Vandel Buster,” and ADK America’s “Get Ride! AM Driver.” Illumitoon was founded in January of this year by three former executives from FUNimation and has focused on acquiring popular anime content while repositioning them for maximum accessibility in the US.
