According to the report, CyberAgent acquiring NItroplus as a subsidiary will have little impact on its finances for the September 2024 period. It’s well within the costs that it revealed to investors back in November 2023.

For reference, Nitroplus is a company that creates contents for multiple mediums, including novels, games, and anime. Works from Nitroplus include Song of Saya, Touken Ranbu, Togainu no Chi, DRAMAtical Murder, and Steins;Gate. Some of these works, such as Togainu no Chi and Touken Ranbu, are in collaboration with other companies or are part of a separate branch than the main one.

Nitroplus will be allowed to maintain its work culture, as well as continue to release works in genres it’s interested in. CyberAgent letting the workers do so is part of why Nitroplus accepted the offer. Another reason is because becoming a subsidiary of CyberAgent would let Nitroplus focus on content creation and production, and is better for the overall stability of the company’s future.

As of June 26, 2024, Nitroplus has become a subsidiary of CyberAgent. Other subsidiaries include Sumzap, Cygames, and Abema.
