VIZ Media is an anime and manga distribution company, co-owned by Japanese publishers Shogakukan, its licensing division Shogakukan Productions (ShoPro for short) and Shueisha. It is a primary distributor of many popular Shonen-oriented manga series (such as Dragon Ball, Naruto, Bleach and Death Note), which have also been serialized in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump manga anthology. It currently publishes an American version of that monthly.

From 2005-09, VIZ also published Shojo Beat, a monthly shojo manga anthology. The folks at Viz also managed to achieve linguistic immortality by coining the term "glomp" for use as a sound effect in their translations of Ranma One Half and Urusei Yatsura.

Not, repeat not, to be confused with British humour anthology comic Viz.
