Well, this is a bit worrisome.
On January 3, the PonyCan USA website was taken offline. The site currently directs to a blank white screen, with “ponycan.us” printed in plain text. Attempting to navigate to other locations on the site lead to a 404 error.
We’ve reached out to PonyCan USA for more details.
PonyCan USA made its début in September 2014. The company launched with licenses for Denki-Gai and Yuki Yuna Is A Hero‘s first season, and quickly added titles like Cute High Earth Defense Force LOVE! and Sound! Euphonium. As of press time, the company holds licenses for the following:
- Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE!
- Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE! LOVE!
- Garakowa -Restore the World- (movie)
- Lance N’ Masques
- The Lost Village
- Rokka: Braves of the Six Flowers
- Sound! Euphonium
- Yuki Yuna Is a Hero
