5pb. Inc. (株式会社5pb. Kabushiki gaisha 5pb.?, short for The Five powered & basics.), is a Japanese video game manufacturer and record label for video game and anime music. 5pb. formed on April 6, 2005[1] after Chiyomaru Shikura left Scitron to begin the company as its executive director, the position he still holds. The company is divided into two parts, 5pb. Games for the manufacturing of video games, and 5pb. Records for the record label. 5pb. was a wholly owned subsidiary of the TYO Group until Shikura purchased the remaining rights from the TYO Group on April 15, 2009.[2] Shikura co-owns 5pb. with AGOne, an affiliate of Dwango Japan.[3] Staff members include scenario writer Naotaka Hayashi, artist Yukihiro Matsuo, animator Rintarō Okabe and producer Tatsuya Matsuhara.

In April 2011, a group of companies consisting of Arkray, Seed Project, Dwango Creative School, Animelo Summer Life, 5pb. Records, and 5pb. Games merged under the parent company Mages. Inc. lead by executive director Chiyomaru Shikura.[4]

5pb. Games[edit]

5pb. Games is the section of 5pb. which deals with the development and manufacturing of video games. The brand was originally named Five Games Kid, or 5gk. for short, but the name was changed in December 2007 to coincide with the name of 5pb.'s record label 5pb. Records. Some of 5pb. Games' developers arrived from KID, Tonkin House and Scitron, such as with Takeshi Abo in December 2006.
