Concept One and VIZ Media have announced expanding their partnership in the development of anime accessories, adding two new properties. 

Building on a recent collaboration which included accessories featuring “Naruto,” “Hunter x Hunter” and “Inuyasha,” VIZ Media has extended Concept One’s anime rights to include “Death Note” and “Komi Can't Communicate.” Concept One will offer a range of headwear, cold weather accessories, bags and small leather goods, with product slated to launch this fall, through specialty and independent retailers.
