Ode to Anime Studios – PA Works

Appare-Ranman knocked my socks off and this studio is busy with Kamisama ni Natta Hi this season anyway, so it's a good time for a look-see... PA Works was started on November 10th 2000 by Kenji Horikawa (PA Works 2019)...heck that would make it about 20 years old as I put this post out! Geesh,... Continue Reading →

Ode to Anime Studios – NAZ

To be honest, I kept putting this studio off for this post series because I don’t have much information to go off… This is one of those instances where the studio is known under several names – the company website doesn’t refer to itself as “NAZ”, but rather “Anima & Company” (even in the URL,...

Ode to Anime Studios – Trigger

This is the 2nd studio from the order that was decided by the readers. Trigger is a fairly young studio, having started in 2012 (Minto 2018), and are known for their staff, which are a pack which formed out of the vacuum left by Hideaki Anno at Gainax circa 2006 (Minto 2018). You might know... Continue Reading →

Ode to Anime Studios – Gainax

Thanks to everyone who voted in that poll I ran. I’m not sure if you noticed the poll on the previous Ode post took precedence, but Gainax had the 2nd place position on the Twitter poll anyway. If you wanted to know (or didn’t see the Must-read Monthly Monday for this month), Trigger was the... Continue Reading →

Ode to Anime Studios – David Production

Well, I’ve seen a few things from this studio…but I don’t actually know much about them, aside from their reputation with the Jojo series. With the anime marathon adding Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 1 to my list, that means I’ve at least sampled Cells at Work, Fire Force, Ensemble Stars, Sagrada Reset, Book of Bantorra...

Ode to Anime Studios – Brain’s Base

I’ve been worried about this one – I don’t really know their output too well and their overall “footprint” on their works is kind of vague… Brain’s Base is a yuugen kaisha, rather than a kabushikigaisha (see the explanation of that here). They mostly do adaptions, some of which are fairly popular (Natsume, anyone?) and... Continue Reading →

Ode to Anime Studios – 8-bit

Stars Align’s put my eye towards these guys. If I wanted to catch the seasonal train on Stars Align, I’m a bit late, but…welp, the post in this series that I want to write on ID: INVADED’s studio NAZ is not going anywhere. There’s just not enough info out there for it, not to mention... Continue Reading →

Ode to Anime Studios – Science Saru

Eizouken is making waves this season, so it’s time to set our sights on this small studio backed by a big name. Keep Your Hands off Eizouken! gives insight into the animation business as seen from the animators’ points of view, so it’s perfect for something like this, I think. Science Saru started on the...
