Online media-streaming website Crunchyroll has seen what the two parties are calling a “strategic investment” amounting to $750,000 from Japanese television station TV Tokyo.


While TV Tokyo now have shareholder rights following the investment, Crunchyroll’s operations and management will remain unchanged. A majority of the anime streamed at the site is broadcast by TV Tokyo, so the investment makes business sense.


Crunchyroll also announced they are in the process of negotiating a second strategic investment with a group of major Japanese book publishers.
