Silver Link is starting to impress me a lot lately. Dusk Maiden of Amnesia, Kokoro Connect, Watamote!, Non Non Biyori, and this season's No-Rin have been some of my season favorites that they've done. I think we'll see a lot more great titles from them in the coming years.

Nisekoi has reminded me of how awesome and unique animation done by Shaft can be as well.

In terms of pure visual style, I think Shaft is the best by far. Their animation is just so unique and unconventional. So Shaft is definitely my favorite. However, I do like Sunrise, Ufotable, Gainax, Trigger, and KyoAni a lot as well. Every studio has anime that I like and don't like, so I'm basing this on pure visual style.

JC Staff, Xebec, and AIC.

All nice companies with consistently interesting anime.

It takes more than pretty pictures to hook me.

Production IG, hands down. When it comes to quality in their animation, nobody does it better than IG. Even for shows that end up being duds, they make it look great. And for my top 10:

1. Production IG
2. Kyoani
3. Sunrise
4. A-1 Pictures
5. Shaft
6. Madhouse
7. Bones
8. J.C. Staff
9. Brain's Base
10. Silver Link

Gonzo would have been high on this list if I took it five years ago, but they have since fallen off the map and haven't done anything special recently.

I'm not sure about a favorite, but I'll pay extra attention to a project if Shaft, Gohands, or Ufotable are involved.

More recently there's also Trigger, and I'm curious to see what comes out of Troyca.

Here's my top 15 anime studio ranking:
1. BONES - I love the style this studio uses, it is my favorite in anime.
2. Production IG - amazing visuals and stunning backdrops are common with this one.
3. Madhouse - another superb studio with great animation and a wide range of ability.
4. A-1 Pictures - really has been growing on me with recent works like SAO showing what they are capable of achieving.
5. Shaft - very unique style that cannot be copied.
6. KyoAni - redefined the slice of life genre with it's simple but alluring style.
7. Sunrise - classics galore and wide range of works.
8. Manglobe - Samurai Champloo is one of their best and most fluid works.
9. Gainax - bold and over the top flair that does not disappoint.
10. AIC Build - a nice little studio with fantastic animation.
11. Silver Link - an up and coming studio to keep an eye on.
12. Brain's Base - very solid anime under their belt.
13. PA Works - small amount of works, but top notch ones at that.
14. J.C. Staff -shaky at times, but has some real gems in there too.
15. Trigger - Kill la Kill proves they are serious about being a game changer.

In spoilers are some anime productions, by studio, that really caught my attention in some way; whether it be uniqueness, fluid animation, character designs, etc...
