Comment on Top 10 Best Anime Studios by Nick R:

Avatar of Nick R

I realize that GONZO DIGIMATION didn’t make the list. Could be because it’s kinda dead and stuff (well, if it wasn’t then it is now thanks to the J.C. STAFF team-up project Last Exile 2. Last Exile 2 didn’t even come close to being as breathtakingly brilliant as the first season, but despite that, I really think GONZO deseves SOME credit for its achievements in the Anime industry since a lot of 2000-2007 animes were heavily influenced by GONZO whether in part or in physical production. GONZO offered its 3D and 2D studios to help many anime studios up their game.

GONZO best noted for: Last Exile, Gankutsuou: Count of Monte Cristo, Romeo X Juliet, Le Chevalier D’eon (also a Production I.G.), Read or Die, Chrono Crusade, Tower of Druaga, Kazuma no Stigma (sadly unfinished), and many more very vibrant series/ and movies alike.

If you have a past Anime between 2000 and 2007 that seems like the artwork is a bit above top-notch it may have had help from GONZO’s Digital animation department. I was surprised by how many anime GONZO was responsible for myself.

Then again, I was a pretty big fan of J.C.Staff as well. Might still be if they keep pulling things like FATE/ZERO off.

Not for nothing, but I really miss the days of GONZO DIGIMATION. I realize it was a studio that made countless mistakes from production to production, but to be fair, they spent a TON of money to make them.

    TOEI has seemed to lost its luster. They keep going back to recover the only series that they have ever had a success with, and for some reason they think that by pulling a “Hideaki Anno” by “retelling the story for a new generation” that’s somehow going to appeal the same effects as the original series that everyone loved. Sailor Moon Crystal is one of those reconstruction anime, some people who had never seen the original might like it. However, most who had (at least that I have spoken to) …

    So. You like Anime, Mr. President… And yet the Anime companies in America are all but bankrupt. So how in the (choice words) are Americans even watching “anime” unless they’re tapping into resources that would serve Americans, but not pay the Japanese artists… oh… this IS America we’re talking about. Think about it. over 75% of the illegal downloads are through torrent downloads and these torrent downloads are almost all American distribution websites and American consumers of these …

    Actually, Just think about a point. Start calculating just how much time HAS been wasted by the # of Anime you HAVE watched starting from when you started watching it. I’m willing to bet you might be able to add a few years to your life had you not ever watched any. Even so. Even with the 30+ anime series that come out every season (not including run-ons) there is no one alive, that I know of, that doesn’t sift over those 30 and find that they probably at most only watch 2-5 series. And among …

  • Unlimited Blade Works “Heart/wrenching!”:
    Point: 1. You have a story that centers around Death, killing, blood, gore… 2. If you aren’t expecting characters dying when you’re watching a show about killing people you’re watching the wrong show.

  • Unlimited Blade Works “Heart/wrenching!”:
    Pay attention to Fate/Zero. Unlimited Blade Works TV Series is being treated as a Direct Sequel in this case. So follow the storyline. And yes. The point on this show is to show the sadistic murder to make you harbor deep hatred towards Gilgamesh (which is not deviating from the Babylonian legend he comes from.)
