Our animation awards continue with the aesthetics that have impacted fans and industry members the most: the most inspired art direction and color design, the animation designs that fulfill their goals the best, and most striking compositing to bring it all together!
Exactly twenty years ago, on 28th October 1998, one of the current biggest players in the anime industry was founded: studio BONES. What once was a small company featuring Cowboy Bebop’s ambitious production staff eventually grew into an entity with worldwide reach, a large fanbase, and many popular titles under its belt. During these two decades, they’ve carved their mark into the history of animation, but what can we expect from BONES moving forward?
It’s been a few hours since this year’s installment of Japan’s biggest anime event Anime Japan ended. This exhibition of “everything about anime” featured a considerable number of booths displaying production materials, and so we decided to search twitter and other outlets to compile them into a single gallery. Enjoy!
