Protoculture Inc, the publisher, used to be called IANVS Publications. It began as a group that made the fanzine Protoculture Addicts (which went commercial, and also started the company). The fanzine later went commercial and became a magazine, and the fan group became IANVS. At one point IANVS published a magazine called Mecha Press, which was focused on mecha, mecha toys and kits, and other things mecha. It also published the infamous Anime Shower Special (or Anime Shower) a special comic that featured shower scenes from anime and manga.
Protoculture Addicts is now the primary raison d'être for the company.
Protoculture Inc. has also released the English adaptation of Anime - A Guide to Japanese Animation (1958-1988), an Italian book that chronicles every anime released (in Japan) between 1958 and 1988.
