Aniplex of America Inc. or Aniplex USA is the U.S. distribution enterprise for Aniplex, owned by Sony Music Entertainment Japan, established in March 2005 in Santa Monica, California, to reinforce their license business in the North American international anime market. Aniplex of America operates the English language version of Aniplex+, and a streaming service called Aniplex Channel. Both of them are based on their website. Aniplex of America titles are distributed in the US market by Right Stuf Inc., and usually streamed on Crunchyroll, Funimation, Hulu, HIDIVE and occasionally Netflix and HBO Max. In 2017, it was announced that Shu Nishimoto was appointed as president of the company, with former president Hideki "Henry" Goto becoming head of international business development with the Tokyo branch.[3] In September 2019, it was announced that Funimation general manager Colin Decker is arranged to manage the company.[4] They have been criticized for not offering refunds for in-game purchases in the Magia Record mobile game, which will shut down its English version on September 29, 2020.[5]
