I really like Production IG, Toei Animation and Studio Ghibli. I'm neutral to most others, but the one I really hate is Kyoto Animation. I've watched multiple titles of theirs (Some of Clannad, K-On!, some of Hyouka, Free, Beyond the Boundary and a few others) and they all sucked. Badly. From the animation style to the story to the characters, everything was just bad. Repetitive and bland. Most of their titles I dropped around 7 episodes because I just couldn't do it anymore. It really is beyond me why everyone likes them so much. Is it because of the cute or moe or whatever style? I really don't know. I'd like someone to explain it to me. What are your thoughts? And don't piss on me if you like Kyoto Animation, because I really don't care.

Well, judging by your profile, should anyone be surprised?



Favorite: Tatsunoko Production, TNK, Madhouse, and Toei.

All of them created some of my favorite anime.


Not so favorite: Seven Arcs

Created that Nanoha show.

Well you are the polar opposite of me because I find Kyoto Animations to be the best in the business. The animation is just so amazing and flawless. On top of that they adapt amazing light novels and manga such as Haruhi, Beyond the Boundary, and K-ON. I love pretty much every anime they've made because of the top notch animation and lovable characters. I just love it all :3

Shaft is another amazing studio that have the same reasons as Kyoto just not as amazing animation.

Forgot to mention but I don't really find any studio bad however Shaft and Kyoto are simply my favorites.

Bones for their clean visuals and action scenes.
Gonzo for their uniqueness and beauty.

I like a bunch of other ones(J.C.Staff, Xebec, Madhouse) but the only two i get irritated by will always be KyoAni and Shaft.
They both have great background animation and some other positives in their work though. KyoAni's characters just look bad to me. For the most part, more so recently, they all look alike from their huge moe eyes to the character's reactions. I feel like it's the same repetitive style with them but hey, if that's what you like. Shaft infamous style with the head-tilts and and other random styles they implement like their transitions and still-frames, where the character face looks frozen and only their mouth is moving just annoy me. It's the same repetitive things with these two....

Recently, i saw an ahegao of Chitanda (Hyouka girl) that i thought was interesting...just wanted to share that lol

It sounded more antagonistic in the reading than I'd intended.

And if he wants to vent how much he hates KyoAni for some reason, I guess I don't particularly mind.

Nothing that harsh, I was just being a smartass and not really contributing anything.

Best: Production I.G.
Hands down, I.G. is the best studio there is. They have been around for a long time, and they are ahead of the gang when it comes to innovation in animation. They make all of their shows visually spectacular.

Worst: Bee Train
The animation quality from these guys do a great injustice to their shows. Not to mention, they are lazy in their animation.

Their animation is quite nice in itself, very pretty and all that. I guess what I meant is that I just don't like the whole moe style they've got going for them recently, as well as the character designs. And I forgot about Haruhi. I actually really liked it.

Shaft for unique art style.


worst studio for me is A-1 pictures because they have no talent, they like to put old overused cliches because they have no idea what to do.

For best, I will mention ufotable mostly because I can only imagine how much the budget was to make the Kara no Kyoukai movies and Fate Zero. I will quote a Fate Zero review I watched and guess they had a budget that could buy Belgium. Among my other favorites are Madhouse, Toei, Production IG, and Bones.

I don't really have anyone in mind for worst anime studio. Their shows have to be horrific if I'm ever going to notice terrible animation.

I'm stuck between Madhouse and bones. I'm not going to go all out and say "they have the best animation of all time", but as a personal preference I like the way their animation looks as opposed to others.

And I'll throw in that I'm a Shaft fan just because of their unique approach. It adds variety and that intrigues me.

My favorite studio by far is Shaft. I love them with a passion. They've made some of my favorite shows (Madoka Magica, Monogatari Series), other good shows (Nisekoi, Psychoelectric Girl, Dance in the Vampire Bund, etc.) and shows that aren't all that amazing but that I still really enjoyed watching (Maria Holic).

As for my least favorite, I'd have to agree with you. It would be KyoAni. I don't dislike them entirely because most of their titles are boring, but because they have the potential to make amazing anime but waste such potential and make the same anime over and over except under a different name and with different characters. Out of the seven titles I've seen, Chuunibyou, Beyond the Boundary, and Haruhi Suzumiya all were extremely boring (The first 5 episodes of Haruhi were good). K-On! and Lucky Star gave me a few good laughs but also got stale at certain points (as did the first Clannad). However, I enjoyed Clannad After Story and Nichijou.
