Background:

This was a division of video game company Konami, used to distribute videogame catalogues on VHS.

1st Logo (1987-1989)

Konami Video (1989).png

Logo: On a black background, two glowing lines crawl in from the top and bottom of the screen (the top line is red and the bottom is yellow). They meet and pass each other, forming the Bacon Strips logo as they move. When the lines go off-screen, the logo rises a bit and a blue line quickly moves downwards, then slows down to form "KONAMI" as it goes off-screen. The logo glows.

FX/SFX: The lines forming the logo, and the glowing.

Music/Sounds: A jazzy marimba/xylophone tune with metallic clangs when the lines form the logo. A sparkling sound and an echoing tom-tom is heard when the "KONAMI" is formed and when the logo glows, the ascending/descending synth bell glissando, which sounds like the 2nd Konami logo, but modified, is heard.

Availability: Seen on anime tapes from Japan.

Editor's Note: A soothing logo which contained some nice animation for its time.

2nd Logo (1990-1992?)

Editor's Note: None.
