How to Find Out What Shows Belong to What Company
Most anime that are still in print are part of Right Stuf’s catalog, so you can use RightStuf.com’s handy advanced search
function to pull a list of all of a company’s shows if you want to see what they’ve licensed that’s still being produced. Let’s use Right Stuf shows for our example.
- Go to www.rightstuf.com
- Click on the advanced search button right above the main search bar
- There is a list of criteria with checkboxes. Check publisher, and media
- On the publisher bar, choose the company whose titles you with to list
- On the media bar, select DVD, so it only returns results that are DVD’s
- Leave the title checkbox and title bar blank. Leave the middle as “equal to”
- Hit search!
Below are two pictures to explain the advanced search process visually:
Here are some of the results of the advanced search that we performed:
The results page will list the company’s shows in alphabetical order. If we don’t have it, it’s quite possible the show is out of print, in which case you might have to do a little more in-depth research on Google!
Last But Not Least, Always Remember to:
- Look up the licensor of the show so you don’t send the request to the wrong company.
- Use “request for screening permission” in your message’s subject or c/o line.
- Remember to include all the necessary contact, organization, and showing information.
- Request permissions well in advance so companies have time to respond.
We hope this guide proves valuable in your quest for screening permissions. If any of this contact information becomes invalid, or if you have alternate or additional companies this guide is missing, email firstname.lastname@example.org
