Ode to Anime Studios – Doga Kobo

Welp, we’re getting to the more questionable and obscure studios at this point… …I think most of the studios after this one are really controversial studios (Gonzo, A-1), studios I didn’t really know how to tackle (JC Staff, Brain’s Base) or fairly new studios which only get their attention from the sakuga community (Orange, Colorido)....

Ode to Anime Studios – Studio 3Hz

I'm trying a little something with this post... Between Flip Flappers, Princess Principal and the most recent (but not ongoing) entry into their oeuvre Blackfox, this studio’s become one to watch. This studio’s name is actually pronounced “3 Hertz”, not “3-H-Z” or whatever else you might think it is. It’s formed from ex-Kinema Citrus staff... Continue Reading →

Ode to Anime Studios – Wit Studio

Arguably, Wit Studio’s biggest work is one I haven’t watched… Wit Studio is currently working on Vinland Saga, plus some other works we haven’t caught much wind of yet like the Netflix-bound music anime Vampire in the Garden, so it’s a good time as any to shine a spotlight on them. This studio, founded on June... Continue Reading →

Ode to Anime Studios – Ufotable

With Kimetsu no Yaiba airing right now, it seems like a good time to write about ufotable. The interesting thing is that I’ve always pronounced the studio’s name “u-fot-able”, but it should be (according to the katakana) pronounced “yu-fo-table”…not that it makes much of a difference from pronouncing each of the letters in “UFO” separately,...

Ode to Anime Studios – Kyoto Animation

…for once, this post series can actually be relevant to current discussions…although that has its own set of inherent risks… Kyoto Animation, known as “KyoAni” for short, is known for distinctive visuals, its fair work practices and, within the anime community, it has some degree of infamy for its fans…which is why I’ve been so...

Ode to Anime Studios – Zero-G

To be honest, I still have no idea why all these studios are based near Suginami… To continue with the weird but true fact that the base of anime operations in Japan is Suginami, here’s another studio from there. Kabushikigaisha Zero-G hasn’t existed for long – in fact, it’s only been around since June of... Continue Reading →

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 →
