Besides Shaft and maybe Madhouse Studios, KyotoAnimation is probably my favorite.

Shame they won't be doing Little Busters! this Fall..*sigh*

Actually, Inuyasha was produced by Studio Sunrise. Akira was produced by Tokyo Movie Shinsha. Shin-chan is produced by Shin-Ei Animation.

KyoAni did cooperate with the studios above to produce bits of animation but they're not responsible for the 'full' creation of the series mentioned.



As amazing as their animation is, I'm not too big of a fan of KyoAni. I do enjoy some of their works (FMP, TMoHS, Air, Kanon, and currently Hyouka) but they really don't seem to offer anything other than good animation. I think they're just a less skilled version of SHAFT without Shinbo's director skills.

Not really a god tier studio only a few titles have the animation AND a good/decent story to follow it.

I mean if the story sucks why am I watching it? for the quality *one from zendude "LAWL"

Oh wait. You're right.

SHAFT is like the Studio Ghibli for anime tv series.
It's a brilliant anime studio.

Clannad After Story
is better than anything SHAFT has ever done though.

And MADHOUSE is the Ghibli of television anime studios.

That's strictly my opinion though. I'm sure some could make cases for Toei, Sunrise or Production I.G just as easily.

I think that statement is a matter of personal preference.

I didn't particularly enjoy Clannad: AS since I didn't really care for Nagisa. Sure, there were a few tearjerkers but I think the ending was a cop out to the story. They took the time and courtesy to invoke an emotional response only for to crush it later. I should be blaming the source material for that but I've heard the adaption differs a lot from the source material. It has been a while since I've last watched it so I need a second viewing to state my criticisms without bias.

However, I'll say that there are SHAFT productions that are either equal or surpass Clannad: AS. The ef series surpasses the romance of Clannad: AS.

It might be pointless to even mention Madoka Magica but I might as well. Though it is a very different story from what Clannad or ef is, it is worthy of mentioning. I'm not going to go into how Madoka Magica is a deconstruction of the Magica Girl genre or how it reconstructs the genre. Its strength is its storytelling which is one of the finest to this day - it is written by Gen Urobuchi, no less. Its characters are rich with ideologies and fully demonstrative of how these ideologies conflict each other.
