A new mega-company is set to provide more anime content in the future. Aniplex, CloverWorks, Wit Studio, and Shueisha have just announced that they have jointly established a new company named JOEN which aims to produce new TV shows and movies in the future.
The companies shared the news in a joint press release. This confirms that JOEN will be a collaboration between Aniplex, CloverWorks, Wit Studio and Shueisha. JOEN’s main focus is the planning and production of animated television series, animated films and short clips. On top of that, it aims to deliver production to the “best production chains and creators” for CloverWorks and Wit Studio.
One of JOEN’s main goals is to provide a better business model for studios so that profits are efficiently distributed among “staff, creators and people involved in the animation studio”. Although CloverWorks and Wit Studio are currently the company’s only studios, JOEN also plans to collaborate with various other studios in the future.
CloverWorks and Wit Studio have already started well even before JOEN’s announcement. The studios are currently collaborating on Spy x Familywhich became the most popular anime in the spring 2022 lineup. Hopefully, both studios will continue to see more success in the future.
As of now, JOEN has yet to share any details about upcoming projects. However, we may hear from the company in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
In the meantime, the joint anime from CloverWorks and Wit Studios Spy x Family is now on its eighth episode and continues to grow in popularity every week. The anime’s success has also led to an increase in manga sales.
Spy x Family Episode 9 is titled Show how in love you are (“Rabu Rabu o Misetsukeyo”) and is set to adapt the manga’s 13th and 14th chapters. The new episode will air on Saturday, June 4, 2022.
