Fall 2022 is a historically loaded season of anime, the result of concentrating essentially a year’s worth of top talent in one single burst through bold and sometimes aggressive management. It more than deserves a deep dive into many of these titles and the teams behind them—the accomplished veterans, very promising youngsters, and experimental artists leading their own projects, as well as the production circumstances behind this madness.
The anime industry is so saturated with high-profile projects at the moment that studios have to fight tooth and nail to secure qualified animators—sometimes internally so. What could be a great excuse to offer workers more attractive conditions is failing across the board.
We’ve reached the grand finale of our animation awards! These are the shows and movies that, for some reason or the other, have impressed our panel of fans and industry members the most!
Our yearly animation awards gather writers from all around the world to highlight the animated works that resonated with them the most – and this time we’re taking them to the next level, by including the insight of various anime industry members, from a production assistant to animators and even directors. We’ve split the results into three posts so that the result is easier to disgest, so today we’re presenting the best TV episodes of 2019, the opening and ending…
Let’s start to catch up with the production of Mob Psycho 100 Season 2 – the staff’s creative intent, what happens behind the scenes and its consequences on the work itself – with a long post about the Keiji Mogami arc. Perhaps one of the best in action anime history? No big deal, really.
A seemingly one-man spectacle that was actually supported by dozens of talented individuals – that’s the power of the one and only Yoshimichi Kameda!
Mob Psycho 100 is back, baby.
The Winter 2019 season is already starting, so we’re back to do our usual job: figuring out which new titles have premises with high potential and creative crews that can do them justice, to save you the headache of doing it yourself! Let’s run down the most interesting offerings this season, both the ones you’re already expecting and some curious surprises.
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?
2018 is already loaded with huge developments when it comes to anime studios: new companies founded by unique creators, studios popping up to cover forgotten niches, and even major rebrandings involving some of the biggest players in this industry. We’ve compiled all these big news to detail who is involved and what these new studios are already producing. Exciting times ahead!
