DLE has gained notoriety in Japan for their flagship animated television and film series Eagle Talon, a surreal sitcom created entirely in Flash animation by popular creator Frogman (a.k.a. Ryo Ono). DLE has now produced over 30 properties and has business and creative partners in Shanghai, United Arab Emirates, Thailand, Singapore, India and North America where Hasbro is a stakeholder.
