Default SME Visual Works (#89)

SPE and SME had apparently merged to form Aniplex, so I guess we need to mark that as "Formerly" to both these entities.

From Wikipedia: "Aniplex Inc., formerly known as Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE) Visual Works Inc. and Sony Music Entertainment (SME) Visual Works Inc., is a Japanese anime and music production and distribution enterprise owned by Sony Music Entertainment Japan and established in January 1997."

Actually it would be SPE -> SME -> Aniplex. Check the "from" and "to" dates of SPE and SME.

From the same Wikipedia article:
"Originally known as Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE) Visual Works Inc., it was established on September 1995 as a joint-venture between Sony Pictures Entertainment and Sony Music Entertainment Japan, and changed its name in 2001 to Sony Music Entertainment (SME) Visual Works Inc. after becoming a subsidiary completely owned by Sony Music Entertainment Japan. In April 2003, it changed its name to Aniplex Inc."
