Shout! Factory Anime Company

A bit of info about Shout! Factory.

Company Overview

Shout! Factory isn't primarily an anime company; they are a smaller music label and a DVD/Blu-ray home video comapny with a wide range of material, including a fair amount of US Saturday morning kids' fare.

Mixed in is just a bit of anime, both American and Japanese, including the sub-only release of the classic Transformers: Headmasters.

Their Catalog

Their catalog is very broad, but also doesn't include much anime; notable titles are My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and Transformers: Headmasters.

What Their Releases Are Like

They don't release enough anime to make generalizations, but their releases don't tend to be heavy on extras. On the other hand, they did go out on a limb and release the entire Transformers: Headmasters series sub-only on a very inexpensive box set.
