Thank you for making an entry for K Digital Ent, I'd guess that quite a few which are linked to K Media Ent are supposed to go here instead...

The entries in Konami Media should be alright, since they're all pre-2006 and Konami Digital started publishing in 2006.

Although there is another label (Konami Multi-Media), so we'll need to untangle those as well.

Edit: never mind, Konami Multi-Media is just the imprint for Konami Media Entertainment.

Finished sorting out the publisher transitions.

The order is as follows:

Konami Music Entertainment => Konami Media Entertainment => Konami Media Entertainment (Konami Multi-Media imprint) => Konami Corporation (Konami Multi-Media imprint) => Konami Digital Entertainment

The Konami Multi-Media imprint was apparently in use for only one year, from April 2005 to March 2006.

Do you think we should consider Konami Style a Distributor, similar to Sega Store? (even though it's technically a shop)

I think we need to create a new category for that, "retailer" or "vendor". We have that type in the organization database, but not for album linking yet.

Cheat sheet to remind how all this works.

Save a few albums lacking scans most links should be fine (many are still unlinked but I'm on it).

Some notes
- Logos are often just "Konami", but they do write Konami Media/Music etc in the back/obi.
- Promos or special albums up to 2006 may be just Konami even if dates don't match.
- Online retailers are unreliable and don't get publishers right.


Konami (1973/03/19-1999/03)

Konami Music Entertainment (1999/03-2003/09)

Konami Media Entertainment (2003/10-2005/05)

+ Konami Multi-Media (~2005/04-2006/03) [may be KMM+KME or KMM+Konami]

Konami (2005/06-2006/03)

Konami Digital Entertainment (2006/03-now)

+ beatnation Records (2006/03-now)

EDIT: I'm thinking maybe the we should create a new parent Konami for +2000 releases.
From the Wikipedia "In July 2000, Konami Co., Ltd. was renamed to Konami Corporation." (the kanji didn't change though)
