Ode to Anime Studios – Studio Deen

Yep, it’s time to praise another studio which often gets dissed by others (following Pierrot). If you don’t understand what I mean from before the “Read More”, Studio Deen, once upon a time, got dissed a bunch because of what is termed “QUALITY”. If Reddit is anything to go by, big offenders are 2000s Deen... Continue Reading →

Ode to Anime Studios – Studio Ghibli

I wanted to hold off on this particular studio for some time…but the only non-fiction anime/manga books left in the library were Ghibli ones. So…where do I begin? Ghibli is one of those gateway studios – if you don’t encounter it on your way down the anime rabbit hole, then you’ll learn about it (or... Continue Reading →

Ode to Anime Studios – Production IG

Hmm…I don’t think I pay attention to this company much… Production IG is so named because of its founders’ surnames, Ishikawa and Goto. It was previously called IG Tatsunoko (“Tatsunoko” being the company the founders worked for) from its beginning in 1987 and then rebranded as its current name in 1993. It has had collaborations...

Ode to Anime Studios – Geno Studio

Geno Studio has been in charge of Golden Kamuy this past season, so I figured they’d be worth looking into. After the “death” of Manglobe, Geno Studio sure has a lot to live up to…and live up they did. Even if Kokkoku and Golden Kamuy have been panned for certain parts of their visuals, their work...

Ode to Anime Studios – Studio feel.

Someone’s probably already made the pun already about feel bringing the feels… Studio feel’s been gaining some popularity in recent years, so now’s a better time than ever to talk about them. Sidenote: I am not kidding with that title, by the way - the studio’s logo and name is stylised “feel.” (Anime News Network... Continue Reading →

Ode to Anime Studios – Shaft

I’m no authority on Shaft since I haven’t seen a lot of their integral work or the works Shinbo did before he became Shaft’s mainstay, but I’ll give this a shot… Shaft are known for 4 things – Akiyuki Shinbo, the dude who sits in the (chief) director’s chair for pretty much every Shaft project,...

Ode to Anime Studios – Diomedea

I was put behind the 8-ball this month by a particularly annoying project (not a blog one, obviously), so it became a bit hectic the day before the round-up post came out... ...then again, you're not here to read about my griping, are you? You might not know of the name "Diomedea", but you might've... Continue Reading →

Ode to Anime Studios – MAPPA

Ooh, this’ll be interesting… With MAPPA being known as something of a “studio to watch” in the anime community and with them handling Banana Fish this summer season, now’s the time to get some info on them. Let's get something out of the way first, since this combo of kanji has been vaguely annoying me... Continue Reading →
