One of these things is not like the others.

Did you perhaps mean Kyoto Animation (AKA KyoAni)?

No I meant Kadokawa, but I actually made the mistake thinking there were an anime studio. My bad.

I'll say, in no particular order.

Madhouse

One-Punch Man alone should make this anyone's top five choice. But then you throw in Satoshi Kon's major works (Paranoia Agent was the revelation for me), Black Lagoon, Gokusen, Gungrave, the Ippo saga, Hunter x Hunter, Ninja Scroll (of which, no less than 12 of my friends became anime fans because of). The list goes on and on and I'm sure at least two of these shows named are a part of everyone's top five animes of all time. Whether it's a classic like Trigun or a neo-classic like Parasyte. While they may have a few notorious entries(goosh goosh anyone?) they're work can never be denied.
Gainax
May not be what they once were but they're influence on the entire culture can never be overstated. EVA (while I personally did not care for it) revolutionized the mecha genre, defined a generation, made men out of boys and women out of clones. I'm still trying to forgive them for unleashing Asuka on an unwitting population. Throw in Gurren Lagaan and FLCL and all's forgiven.
Bones
FullMetal Alchemist... both of them. Need I go on? Yes? okay. Space Dandy, Soul Eater. The moods this studio is able to invoke with shadings and design is insane.

Pierrot
Osomatsu-san... what they managed to pull off with this series is nothing short of lightning in a bottle. To take an older franchise and breath new life in it without compromising what makes that franchise, that franchise. Fantastic. To handle that light and funny so well but also be responsible for Tokyo Ghoul. And yeah, I like GTO.

TMS Entertainment
I'll be honest, this is strictly down to Lupin the 3rd and they've handled the hiring of any and all animation companies and designers. They're choices for Fujiko Mine, Jigen's Gravestone, and the excellent Blue Jacket series has been fantastic with some of the best animation I've seen in years while completely updating the character designs without losing that inherent classic style.
TMS is in the midst of a Lupin renaissance and I'm loving every minute of it. Add in Rose of Versailles, Space Cobra, God Mazinger. Literally one of the forefather studios in anime.

I seem to like Production I.G and Madhouse the most. Sunrise and Brain's Base seem to have some of my favorite anime as well, although Gintama and Natsume Yuujinchou are both under different studios now. Not too sure about a fifth.

I must confess I'm not too familiar with a ton of studios by their body of work, but basing it on what I have seen:

1. Trigger- Thus far, everything I've seen from Trigger is awesome, and Imaishi is by far my favorite director. It seems everything I've seen by the studio is creative and exciting in multiple ways, and often with a wacky, fun appeal to it that seems to be carrying the spirit of Gainax on into the future.

2. Madhouse- I can definitely say I like the variety of style present in a lot of Madhouse shows, such as Black Lagoon, the episodes they worked on of Hellsing Ultimate, Parasyte, Hunter x Hunter, and my favorite anime movie Ninja Scroll. Those are all very different from one another, but the one thing that's consistent between them is the high quality.

3. Gainax- Full disclosure, I'm not a fan of Evangelion or FLCL, both of which are probably the two most acclaimed works of this studio. Not that I particularly dislike them, since they both are highly unique and are landmark productions within the medium, but I don't really like them, for varying reasons. However, the reason Gainax is on this list is because of Gurren Lagann and Panty & Stocking, two shows that will forever be in my top 5/10 no matter what. So, basically, this is here because of Imaishi's earlier career.

4. Bones- Mainly for Space Dandy, but I do recall enjoying Wolf's Rain when I saw it long ago, and Soul Eater wasn't bad. This one is mostly here because I can name more than one example of something they made I enjoyed

5. David Production- Because as Mr. Joestar mentioned above, they made JoJo, and that alone is enough

Looks like everybody is pretty much diversified which I think is good.

I'm surprised I didn't say JC Staff or Gainax. I also like how a lot of y'all like some studios because good ol' classics in the 90s and early 2000s.
