Namco Bandai appoints three new execs to North American operations

Namco Bandai knows you can only continue to flog the equine corpse of Naruto and Dragon Ball Z so many times before it gets excessive. But rather than bring in new flog-ees, it's welcomed three new floggers to help run its North American operation.

The company has just added former Codie Catherin Fowler, former 2K exec Graeme Bayless and Atari honcho Robert Stevenson to executive positions between which neither you nor we appreciate the distinction. All said they looked forward to being blasted on forums as "somehow less respectful of the art of anime than 4Kids." And that's saying something.
