Reemsborko signs Netflix Original, Cannon Busters

Company will act as worldwide agent for new 12-part anime launching this year.

Reemsborko has been appointed as the worldwide agent for Cannon Busters, a new 12-part anime which is due to launch exclusively on Netflix later this year.

The original IP is based on the characters and story first published by Udon Comics/Devil’s Due in the comic of the same name in 2005.

Following a successful Kickstarter campaign by creator LeSean Thomas to produce a pilot episode in 2014, Cannon Busters has built up a cult following.

The upcoming series will be launched in over 190 territories globally.

The series will be produced in Japanese and then dubbed into international languages including English, German, Spanish, Italian and French along with multiple subtitled languages.

“It is a privilege to be working on this great property,” commented Max Arguile, founder of Reemsborko. “There is already strong interest – apparel is going into Hot Topic in time for launch and a sportswear range is coming too (those licensees will be announced soon).

“We are now at contract with a European statue licensee, a UK jigsaw company and a US pin badge licensee. It’s looking very good for Cannon Busters.”

LeSean added: “I am both humbled and excited about the opportunity to create something truly international in the growing, mainstream appeal of anime.

“Both Netflix and Manga Entertainment have been integral partners in my vision for a truly globalised approach to Japanese animation production and I am excited about what’s to come for fans of anime with this fun, new entry into the medium.”

Reemsborko was appointed by anime distributor, Manga Entertainment.
