Crunchyroll acquires Anime Retailer, Right Stuf

This by far, is the worst game of Monopoly I have ever seen.

Crunchyroll announced on Thursday that it has purchased the anime retailer, Right Stuf to expand its e-Commerce service. The purchase will widen Crunchyroll’s e-Commerce product offering with extensions in the home entertainment and manga categories. The companies did not disclose the terms of the deal.

Now here is the part people hate the most. The Right Stuf website mentions that it will continue to sell products from different companies except “Erotica products.” The companies are phasing out the erotica genre content and product following their unification. All existing Right Stuf orders will be honored, and the website will keep its address. All 18+ erotica orders are being transferred to EroAnimeStore.com. Right Stuf teased that there may be future products, features, and benefits related to Crunchyroll in the future. Right Stuf and Crunchyroll stores will continue to operate separately “for the moment,” according to Anime News Network’s Alex Mateo.

Right Stuf’s CEO, Shawne Kleckner, and the Right Stuf team will be joining Crunchyroll’s Emerging Businesses Organization which is being led by Terry Li. Anime News Network also reached out to Crunchyroll in regards to Nozomi Entertainment, but there is no news about Nozomi Entertainment at this time as they “evaluate all of the rights.”
