Another one DEEN did was Summer 2013's Gifuu Doudou: Kanetsugu to Keiji - http://myanimelist.net/anime/18771/Gifuu_Doudou!!:_Kanetsugu_to_Keiji
I watched the first episode but the animation was bad and it didn't interest me at all.


Oh, yeah, that. I'm typically not into Sengoku-themed shows, so I didn't even bother to look at it, but judging from pictures and screenshots, the animation is not good, either. Sadly, this is what I've come to expect from Deen. Sankarea was a happy surprise and seems to be an exception to their usual work.


I still am yet to see Sankarea... is it a must-watch? Or...? :P


Wouldn't call it a must-watch, but if you like darker romcoms with a unique twist, it's definitely worth your time. Just try to keep your gag reflex in check when watching any scene involving Rea's father.


Alright, cool! Thanks! Btw, can you give me a bit of advice? (Not life advice. Anime advice. xD)
Check my completed section of my hummingbird watchlist - any romance/comedy anime that I haven't seen you think is a must-watch?

Remember! We have a thread specifically for recommendations!

That said, the shows I would recommend are Clannad, Ranma 1/2 and Mysterious Girlfriend X. All 3 are must watch. The first two will require time, as Clannad has it's 2 seasons and Ranma 1/2 the 7 (And 12 ova's and 2 movies...the 3rd movie is in the ova set....)

Now, why do I bring this up? I wanted to bring up Mysterious Girlfriend X's animation studio, as the Anime was absolutely gorgeous, with the 80's rom-com art with modern animation skills. The plot is also rather amazing, if you don't have the stomach for this show you're missing out, heavily.

But yah....that Studio. Hoods Entertainment.

It's like....the Festish Studio...dear lord. I mean, at least they arn't horrible sexy-selling sell outs like Studio Arms....but...they're more perverse.

Like...looking at this list...they arn't even listed on Wikipedia! They have several known works.....known and strange. I'm not going to talk about them, just....dear lord this list.

It's like, better and worse than everything Studio Arms has to offer....all at the same time.

I'm losing hope with KyoAni's 2013 output, save us Chuunibyou 2!

SHAFT needs to get that [email protected] magical girl anime they teased out already. They also need to get the Monogatari movie out as well, repeated delays bleh

PA Works is doing a heck of a job lately so props to them.

Sunrise...you get a pass because of Valvrave

Yeah hakkedden didn't go anywhere. Is This a Zombie? Is just funny. And Sankerea…is awesome

Gifuu Doudou: Kanetsugu to Keiji i didn't even watch it. And Rea's Father…i agree with you. (He even looks creepy)
Good Show you should watch it Epicmike64

Because I was bored, I made a list of every anime studio that I cared to think of, sorted by output rather then number of employees (except for Ghibli's case). It took longer than I thought it would lol, and the list isn't perfect but whatev.

My favorites are in bold.

Small Studios (12-24 episodes a year or less)

Medium Studios (25-50 episodes a year)

Large Studios (50+ Episodes a year)


I'd say David Production and White Fox are up-and-comers. Everything they make is generally very good. 8-Bit's production output soared this season.
I wish Gainax and Gonzo would get their crap together, especially Gainax. Gonzo still makes quirky good stuff every now and then.
I think A-1 Pictures somehow doesn't get the recognition they deserve. They make good shows and they make them often, but they aren't acclaimed like Madhouse and Production I. G. are.

As Felstalker said, there is an anime recommendation page. But... I see that you haven't watched Ano Natsu de Matteru (Waiting in the Summer). That is one of my favorite romcoms. I recommend it.

Oh, that is so true. A-1 does a great job. I wouldn't say they're one of my favorites, but they do seem oft forgotten.

You prabably already know this but they are the one behind Magi

And one of their ongoing title is Space brothers which is amazing ( Mutta is awesome)
A-1; they also did Siver Spoon (correct me if i'm wrong)

I'm going to go with Bold for studios I felt like noting, Green for great (or great within their limits), and other colors for mystery reasons.
v These lists are great by the way v

Small Studios (12-24 episodes a year or less)

Comet You missed studio comet T.T http://st-comet.com/works.html: They're a small studio, but their few anime are great (in terms of use of animation based on budget.) Unfortunately, Jewelpet has taken up all of their time >.>
David Production: hasn't been disappointing in their rendition of any manga (based on budget)
feel. has always caught my eye as the strange studio that doesn't have a website but releases anime regularly. (I follow their twitter on and off for updates ^ ^; )
Lerche: I don't like Machine Doll, but Lerche has a very spirited studio and did a great Danganronpa (based on budget.) Hopefully Machine Doll gets them a nicely funded anime.
Studio Gokumi: can create some amazing money moments. There are strange moments where their characters suddenly seem to be personified perfectly, and there are moments in most of Gokumi's anime that can be down-right impressive.
Trigger: has a unique identity of its own (unlike almost all studios other than Shaft.)
White Fox: Interests me. I've heard a lot of good things about Jormungand & Devil is a Part Timer, but haven't watched them to see what the animation is like.
Wit Studio Wit is born from the dark recesses of I.G. "Houzuki no Reitetsu" will decide whether it was the subsidiary of Production I.G. or I.G. its-self that made Attack on Titan's animation impressive on the eyes.

--
GoHands has almost no output other than Seitokai Yakuindomo (going on season 2 soon)..
Kinema Citrus (See MAPPA)
MAPPA has done nothing significant on their own. Their short anime (Teekyu) is funny, I guess, but the animation doesn't give much..
ufotable: I honestly don't understand why people are focusing on ufotable. Fate/Zero and maybe Gyo? Their other works are severely inconsistent (strictly based on animation, not story etc)

Medium Studios (25-50 episodes a year)

8-bit has absolutely amazed me at times.
Bones' anime have a tendency to look good..
J. C. Staff does very well as an animation studio. But, there's many anime they release that have incredibly simple or boring animation. I imagine it has to be a budget thing?
Kyoto Animation is the only studio that MUST sell twice the number of dvds due to their high productions costs. This shows in every anime they do.
Shaft has director Akiyuki Shinbo. Shaft's works therefore have a distinct "Shaft" style. The animation is almost consistently impressive, even if the more recent anime can be too harem-y or ecchi lately (Hidamari Sketch is still perfect <3 and great for getting sleep.) (And suffice to say, friends of mine have shown me some action scenes from -monogatari that are beyond impressive.)
Silver Link needs more time to refine. Once it gets there, people will be following their anime like it's the newest cult.

Large Studios (50+ Episodes a year)



The "large" studios mostly have awful or rarely great animation qualities. I guess it's quantity disturbing cohesion.
Even Production I.G. whose animation techniques are amazing seems to suffer from stale visuals or boring uses of the technology. Kinda makes me want to put a lot of hope on Wit Studio.

I don't know what's happening to Ghibli now that the movies are over.
A-1 is too inconsistent.

Haha, yes, I'm aware. They also do Galilei Donna, and they did Anohana and Fairy Tale, amongst others. They have a good track record. I'm always particularly impressed by the original works they do, like Gallilei, Anohana, and Tsuritama.

Kyoto and Aniplex are cool.

Can't really choose between the productions, I mean there are so many good ones.
