I really like KyoAni's character design and animation. Their shows always draw me in because they look so pretty. Have you seen the swimming scenes in Free! ? Holy crabcakes, does that look amazing. Sounds kind of shallow of me, but that's just the way it is ^^" Oh, and Ghibli of course, they have a special place in my heart as well. Other than that there isn't really any studio that I'm more fond of than others.Whether it's BONES, Madhouse or Production IG, they've all done shows that I liked. I'm hoping that Trigger will continue to make more awesome anime. Kill la Kill was pretty good in my opinion.

The only studio that I don't particularly like is Deen. I mean, I like some of their shows (like Higurashi and Hetalia), but the animation itself is consistently bad.

Personally my favourites are:
P.A. Works- I love their animation style and most of their show give off a relaxing mood.
Sunrise: Because they made Gundam. And Gintama. That's enough for me to like them. And they've made a handful of other great shows.
Madhouse: I've liked most of the stuff they've released, and their animation is superb.

Ones I dislike (although some not completely) are:
Shaft: Their animation style is repetive. I don't really like any of their stuff I've seen (apart from Madoka Magica) and they absolutely RUINED Mekaku City Actors. I was looking forward to that show for such a long time and they completely ruined it for me. Well, fair enough, it's not that bad (well it wouldn't have been for me if I wasn't such a big fan of the song series beforehand), but it was still pretty average.

Kyoto Animation: While I liked some of their earlier works (Clannad, Haruhi, Lucky Star), recently, it's pretty much been all about moe (or manservice if you're talking about Free!).

A-1 Pictures: Well, it's not so much that I hate or dislike them, it's just that they make some really bad adaptations (well, if you compare it to the original work). I do like a lot of the stuff they put out, though, it's just that they kinda suck at doing adaptations.

favorites:
slice of life/drama: PA-1 Works. Nagi no Asukara was beautiful. Shirobako was well done too.
Studio 3Hz has potential to be great as well, after watching Sora no Method (the animation was well done)

action/shounen: ufotable. they did a great job in animation with fate/zero and fate/night
idol/music: possibly Sunrise because of Love Live

least favorite: Studio Deen. they tend to make lower quality animation, even for relatively short series. sometimes it's hard not to notice the amount of QUALITY in their shows.

Toei also have quality issues, but i can't dislike them completely b/c of the precure franchise.

Mappa and Madhouse are probably my favorites at the moment. I've liked every Mappa anime I've seen. Lerche also does a decent job.

A meh studio would be Wit.
They had impressively lazy fights in Seraph and I was not a fan of how they handled the story of AoT. Amalgamating all the flashbacks together just made for a boring start and made some reveals before they should have happened.

Least favorite? Toei, Deen, and Pierrot.
They have the magical ability to suck the life out of a decent story and have lazy animation. Toei managed to make Sailor Moon Crystal feel like a speech read in monotone. Plus they aren't simulcasting DBS for some reason. Deen screwed up Log Horizon 2. They apparently had no idea how to properly execute a glasses raise. Probably the only Pierrot show I really like is Yu Yu Hakusho, and part of that is the English dub. Pierrot made some bizarre choices for both Bleach and Tokyo Ghoul. They fail to adapt Kubo's almost cinematic art style and it's impressive how boring they can make the show (I like the manga). For some reason, they felt the need to rearrange the arcs in Tokyo Ghoul to remove Kaneki's character development and make him look like an incompetent idiot.
Basically, Toei, Deen, and Pierrot are the studios I dread getting a property I like.

Favorite Studios: Madhouse, Bones, PA Works, and Kyoto Animation. There isn't much from these studios that I don't have a good time watching.

Studios that I consider good to okay: Production I.G., Sunrise, Statelight, JC Staff, Wit Studio, A-1 Pictures, SHAFT.

Studios that should never existed: DEEN, Pierrot, Toei Animation. Seeing any of these three really rubs me the wrong way for an anime.

Everyone else I feel indifferent about or just haven't seen enough anime from the studio.

Hi guys :)

This is just my thought:

Best: The studios that do the big names like Hunter X Hunter, Naruto, One Piece....etc

Worst: whoever dubbed One Piece.

Favorite studios

Madhouse is always a staple, they've done a ton of series, and while I would never say all of them are good, things are always lively when they're involved.

Ufotable: Unlimited Budget Works. Their animation is one of the many things that made Fate/Zero solid.

Mappa: they're kind of new at this, but they've got a bright future ahead of them. Wishing them the best for the next season of Bahamut and Garo

Least favorites

Toei, at this point I only watch One Piece out of habit. They have some serious problem with pacing and they seem to purposely make things as cheaply as possible.

Studio Deen....QUALITY, that is all. To their credit, that worked well with Higurashi.
