Actually, Licensing Management is a sideline to Sotsu Agency, a
major advertisting agency. In the last few year, Bandai had began
to buy up equity in Sotsu, but the last time I checked, it's only the
second largest shareholder. I think Sotsu's role in Gundam is
similiar to Big West, another ad agency, to Macross.
