Electronics co and distributor of anime soundtracks.
Japan Victor Company (i.e., Nippon Victor locally) was founded in 1927 as a subsidiary of the American company Victor Records. The company was a pioneer in radio and television development, but cut off from its parent company during World War II. By 1953, ownership had been transferred to Matsushita. The company is also credited with the invention of the VHS cassette, a major catalyst in the rise of adult-oriented anime in the 1980s and beyond. Subsidiaries include Victor Entertainment (Japan), a major distributor of anime-related soundtracks and itself the owner of the Victor Entertainment Animation Network.
