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 – Lerche/Studio Hibari

This is a bit of a complicated scenario, so I ended up putting the two studios together...I don't think I'll be running one of these posts next month as a result. As I was thinking about what to write about this month, two problems came up regarding this studio: What should I think the major... Continue Reading →

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 →

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 →
