Madman Entertainment has just announced through their official Twitter that the company now has its new owners. The company was of course put up for sale earlier this week by Funtastic. The exciting announcement is one that you could say is ‘best for business’. The original founders of Madman Entertainment have officially bought back their company after having sold it to Funtastic 8 years ago.
It has been a total of 18 years since Madman Entertainment’s founding and in many ways this does feel like a ‘coming full circle’ moment for Australia’s largest anime distributor. The company was originally founded in a share-house bedroom by room-mates Tim Anderson and Paul Wiegard and after all these years the ownership of Madman falls back into the hands of the two mad men who founded the company.
You can check out the blog post from Tim and Paul regarding the exciting announcement on their official Tumblr page here. Be sure to let us know what you think in the comments section below.
