Siren Visual Take Anime Fans on a Brief Walk Down Memory Lane



Siren Visual have been a staple in the Australian anime industry for many years. While its roots extend all the way back to 1987 as a music distribution company which later expanded to video distribution in 1994, it also served as a distribution company for other companies such as Manga UK and Madman Entertainment while also holding their own acquisitions as well. While I would have been far too young to remember these days and now know of Siren Visual has a company that provides some of the more unique anime titles on the market – it is always nice to take a walk down memory lane.

Last week the company uncovered and placed up on their official Facebook page images of a few VHS titles they released during the 90’s including The Castle of Cagliostro, Ghost in a Shell and Ninja Scroll. While it may take you only a minute or two to go through, it is interesting to see some of the titles which were released back more than a decade ago now. Check it out HERE. You can read more about the anime and non-anime oriented history of the company on their About page HERE.

The Otaku’s Study has been covering titles announced/released by Siren Visual since January 2011, and I invite you to go through the archive of news and reviews HERE. The company has been behind a number of Australian-exclusive English-region anime releases including Welcome to Irabu’s Office, Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai and Dennou Coil. Other titles they have up their sleeves includes Chihayafuru and Monster.

Founder of The Otaku's Study. I have been exploring this labyrinth of fandom these last fourteen years, and still nowhere close to the exit yet. Probably searching for a long time to come.
