LOVE☆COM is Fabulous Films for Young Adults!

One of our Shojo (girls) favorites LOVE☆COM THE MOVIE has been picked by the Young Adult Library Service Association (YALSA), a part of ALA (American Library Association ), to be part of their 2009 top 16 Fabulous Films for Young Adults.

We are very excited to be on this list, especially because we have started our special library rentals in early 2008, where we give discounts for any librarians that wish to show our FABULOUS collection to their community. As most of our titles are suitable for young adults, we have been trying to get their attention. If you are a librarian interested in screening our titles, please contact our rental department at info@viz-pictures.com. Thank you YALSA for picking our film!
