It is because the company was secretly founded by a group of Dutch Budhists...

Or perhaps they just like the idea of forbidden colours (kinjiki). See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Traditional_colors_of_Japan#History.

This is what I always thought, too. It looks like salmon roe.

What Orange means on the color wheel, I bolded the more important parts.

Orange combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow. It is associated with joy, sunshine, and the tropics. Orange represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation.

To the human eye, orange is a very hot color, so it gives the sensation of heat. Nevertheless, orange is not as aggressive as red. Orange increases oxygen supply to the brain, produces an invigorating effect, and stimulates mental activity. It is highly accepted among young people. As a citrus color, orange is associated with healthy food and stimulates appetite. Orange is the color of fall and harvest. In heraldry, orange is symbolic of strength and endurance.

Orange has very high visibility, so you can use it to catch attention and highlight the most important elements of your design. Orange is very effective for promoting food products and toys.

They are trying to say they are providing friendly service like Nickelodeon by using orange. The symbol is a cartoon eyeball, so it is "Friendly viewing of Japanese Animation, Dramas, and Manga".
I think it might be the best single color choice to represent Anime as well, even the dark varieties.
