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 →

Ode to Anime Studios – TMS Entertainment

I remember some comments on Anime News Network saying TMS was “on fire” this spring season with Lupin III Part V and Megalobox. Y’know what? I think they’re right. TMS isn’t a name that’s thrown around a lot, come to think of it – despite them being the studio behind Detective Conan and a bunch... Continue Reading →

Ode to Anime Studios – Madhouse

Strangely, I don’t know that much about Madhouse, despite it being one of my favourite studios… If I were to rate my favourite studios, Bones comes first but Madhouse comes second. Even if I do have a few Bones titles that I haven’t outright enjoyed (lookin’ at you, Heroman!), Bones has a real panache for... Continue Reading →

Ode to Anime Studios – Toei Animation

Due to other commitments, I’ve been holding on to the same library books for a few months now, including the same anime reference books I keep using for this segment…Thank goodness for loan renewals. Toei is one of the biggest companies in the history of anime – to start, it’s one of the oldest anime... Continue Reading →

Ode to Anime Studios – C-Station

Gotta shine that spotlight on lesser-known studios every once in a while… C-Station is one of those studios that doesn’t really hold that many credits to its name – its most popular show ever is this season’s YuruCamp (Seasonal Prattle 2018), and that goes for me as well because StarMyu is still on my plan...

Ode to Anime Studios – Sunrise

You know how I said in the Must-read Monthly Monday for this month how I'd be getting to my 2018 regular routine soon? It still hasn't happened yet, but I'm already starting to doubt my choices (since I chose to deal with Japanese from two different perspectives for this part of the year - one... Continue Reading →

Ode to Anime Studios – TROYCA

Idolish7’s true debut is this month, so get out your glowsticks and let’s talk TROYCA! Studio TROYCA is a bit of an anomaly in that they’re quite the unknown quantity. They’re fairly new, having only started business in 2013, but they have quite the impressive resume already. From their lesser-known resume, TROYCA’s had a hand... Continue Reading →
