AV Visionen will be delivered by VVA in the future

AV Visionen, the largest media distributor for Japanese anime and manga in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, has been delivered by Vereinigte Verlagsauslieferung (VVA) since September 1, 2019. AV Visionen includes the largest German anime DVD label KAZÉ Anime and the book division KAZÉ Manga.

"I am very pleased that we are able to offer the market a clear plus in performance and advantages with the bundled delivery by VVA," emphasizes Mathias Nowoczin, Managing Director of AV-Visionen. With KAZÉ Manga and the distribution titles of the publisher CROSS CULT, the company offers its customers a program of more than 3,000 titles and is present in bookstore chains, specialist comic book stores and all leading electrical retail chains.

VVA, which belongs to the Bertelsmann subsidiary Arvato Supply Chain Solutions, is thus strengthening its presence in the growing manga market. For example, the Manga programs from Tokyopop, Altraverse, Panini and Egmont are already being delivered - bundled with all publishers as usual at VVA. "The market for mangas is very exciting and growing dynamically," says VVA Managing Director Stephan Schierke. "We are pleased to be able to further expand our already high presence in this segment with our new customer AV Visionen."
