Youmex (ユーメックス株式会社 Yūmekkusu Kabushiki Kaisha?) was an anime production company and record label (under their label Futureland) established in 1985 as a subsidiary of Toshiba EMI and founded by Junji Fujita (formerly of King Records).[1] The company was absorbed back into Toshiba EMI in 1998,[1] after taking on debt defaulted on by Artmic.[2]

Some of the more well-known works for which Youmex released soundtracks and other CDs (under its Futureland label) include Kimagure Orange Road (Sound Color 1-3, Loving Heart, etc.),[3][4] Bubblegum Crisis (Complete Vocal Collections 1-2),[5] and Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water (Vocal Collection).[6]

In 1995, Youmex worked with Adam Warren through Dark Horse Comics and Artmic to come up with the original concept for Bubblegum Crisis: Grand Mal, an original English-language manga series.[7]
