Geneon Universal Entertainment

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


On November 21, 2008, Dentsu, Inc. announced to sell 80.1% of Geneon Entertainment to NBCUniversal. The company was merged with Universal Studios Japan (the deal was closed on February 1, 2009) and was renamed to Geneon Universal Entertainment, part of Universal Pictures International Entertainment. On December 13, 2013, the company was renamed to NBCUniversal Entertainment Japan.

Logo (2009-2013)

Visuals: The last seconds of the 1997 Universal Pictures logo (which is also the basis for the first Universal Music Group logo), but when it's almost complete, the globe slides up, making room for "GENEON UNIVERSAL" fading below, with the words resembling the main font, but brighter.

Technique: CGI animation.

Audio: The ending of the Universal logo soundtrack, or the 1997 long version of the Universal Television fanfare, composed by Jerry Goldsmith.

Availability: Can be seen on Japanese DVDs and occasionally on some Funimation (now Crunchyroll) prints.

Final Note

Newer productions from NBCUniversal Entertainment Japan simply use the 2013 Universal Pictures logo.
