Just wondering, what else from this studio do you like besides all the fate shows? Asking because the only other show I have seen from them was God Eater, which was horrible.

@AnimeATLA To be honest, those are the only shows I've seen from ufotable. I got hooked on Kara no Kyoukai (amazing animation and story) and the Fate series followed suit.

Yeah, Kara No Kyoukai is in the same Nasuverse with the Fate stuff, so I was just including it as a Fate title. I really loved that one and Fate/Zero too, but really was not a fan of how they did UBW.

@AnimeATLA I liked UBW. I'm still on the Fate route of the visual novel, so until I reach the second route, I can't really compare.

5. Madhouse
I love these guys, they make some of the best anime, but they don't really have a style. Their movies can't be beat, with amazing art in films like The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and Paprika. Their classics are legendary with shows like Hajime no Ippo and everything they have been doing recently has been amazing with No Game No Life, Hunter x Hunter and One Punch Man

4. Toei
Ah! This is the company that got me in to anime, with thing like Dragon Ball, Sailor Moon and Digimon, Toei shows just create such a large scale of greatness

3. TRIGGER
The most recent studio in this list TRIGGER is the heart of everything I love in anime, amazing art style, over the top stories and just anime like story telling, Kill La Kill is one of my favorite anime is recent years, Little Witch Academia are very fun to watch (and I'm very proud to have been a backer of that kickstarter) and Space Patrol Lullico is my favorite currently airing anime.

2. Kyoto
What can I say about Kyoto, this is the studio that truly brung me in to the anime community with the Haruhi series and kept me in for all of these years with shows like K-On. Kyoto shows have this certain polish to them that shows from other companies just don't have, there are many reasons for that and if you are not aware of them I recommend you do it a little research on it.

1. Gainax
Even though Gainax may have died a former shell of it's amazing self their past work is 100% worth putting them at the top spot on my list, some would argue putting Gainax and TRIGGER together is okay, but I like to put them away from each other. Let's start with the birth of Gainax with the opening animations they did for Daicon, an Otaku conversion over in Japan, the promotional video they did for the 3rd was sloppy, and look sloppy, but then you come back one year later and OH MY LAWD, the promo video Daicon 4 has some of the most amazing animation I have ever seen, and you can see the birth of Gainax in this short film, from sexy women in bunny outfits with outrageous jiggle physics to the most satisfying explosions in anime, you can truly see that this was the birth of Gainax.
After a few years, the first piece of work I saw by Gainax was released. Neon Genesis Evangelion, and boy for an 11 year old version of my self this show had everything. Even though the animation was downright appealing at some times (MAGIC MARKERS!) the movie End of Evangelion made up for all of that, whilst giving the ending to the series an actual ending (Even though that is arguable)
I could talk about Gainax all day, but I think I should stop my self here. There is plenty more I could write about the studio but if I was going to do it I'd like to do it in some kind of blog/video format.
