Post your picks for studios that are past their prime. Feel free to also list up-and-coming studios on your radar, here's mine in order of potential:

- Science Saru
- Colorido
- Shizu
- MAPPA
- Studio 4C (Tekkon Kinkreet has to count for something)
- Silver Link
- WIT
- DEEN (if Shōwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjū is a success)

MAPPA is objectively the best studio now because they made me find true love.

>>121083185
Just a little joke. Trigger are dying much faster than Gainax, they'll never become a giant.

I blame everything on Aniplex poaching licenses. They take popular things and give them zero budget adaptions while KyoAni puts lots of work into high quality shit nobody cares about.

I imagine PAW as the nice comfy studio in Shirobako. Nobody remarkable, sometimes they make nice shows sometimes trash.

Why Production IG? Haikyuu was one the best things to come out last year. Also isn't WIT just a subsidiary of IG?

>>121083093
How is SHAFT dying? They've got more monogatari and probably madoka to churn out. Small, borderline successful, hit or miss series like Sasami-san and Koufuku Graffiti isn't different for them. And doesn't Nisekoi sell?

>>
>>121084127
Deen has most of Shaft's old talent. If they're ever get good, now's the time. Shaft will probably still be able to milk their popular shows for a bit longer, but I doubt they'll ever return to their prime.
>>
>>121083093

The studio system is old and dead. It's all about production committees now. Studios just work as a base for the job and maybe sometimes a brand.
>>
>>121084127
They have like, 1 major talent in Shinichi Omata from SHAFT. He's been put in charge of an award winning manga adaptation. It looks promising:

None of those 3 are up for debate, anon. Ghibli is a goner, Shaft has lost most of its talent to DEEN and Silver Link, Gainax barely exists anymore.

I look forward to anything these studios release, but do you guys think they'll ever be able to become industry giants?

It feels like nobody is ready to take on Ghibli's mantle as a household name. Yuasa's too quirky, Ishida's stuck making commercials and Hosoda's a furry.

Well, it's not like Miyazaki didn't have his own quirks to be fair.
>>
>>121084082
That would be nice.
>>
>>121085567
I feel like Yuasa's studio can become something. They're bringing foreign talent, using flash animation really well and already had some jobs like the Garo OP and maybe some collaboration with Madhouse in Ore Monogatari. Things might look good.
>>
>>121083758
Nope. Some of my recent favourites have been PA Works.
>>
>>121086042

>copy cat of Shaft + AIC
It feels like they've dropped the shaft-ish direction in recent years compared to earlier shows like Baka to Test or C^3
>>
>>121086232
Seems like a by the numbers studio. Capable of decent performance only with a good director at the helm. I thought Katanagatari was awful compared to SHAFT's nisiOisin adaptations.
>>
>>121086368
Must be because all their talent left.
>>
>>121084775
How are they a copy cat when Shin Onuma actually worked at Shaft, with Shinbo no less? That's just applying your skills elsewhere
>>
>>121083758

Shirobako saving PA from their last two flops (NnA ang glasslip)
>>
>>121086232
There's still more S;G stuff to be milked, so they could go hop on that.
>>
SHAFT is doing rather great, albeit they need a new big hit to play up with big guys - but they are quite financially successful and very well developed compared to pre-monogotari times where they were one of worst studios production wise. Creativity suffered and they just reuse shinbo style over and over, but given nice material might do big anime again.

Trigger is successful as long they have Aniplex backing. KLK was big but not enougth to make them independent - their production entirely depends on financial backing, since they lack resources to do stuff inhouse much. Their next show is either big hit or miss. The Daily battles shown they are not better than any other stuido when not doing original stuff/having limited budget.

Kyoto animation is far from dead, in fact - it grows rapidly in financial and production aspect, increasing its infrastructure and building own little publisher/rightholder empire. KyoAni is becoming the this ages Toei/Sunrise - huge number of people working and big money. They just now need to make video games and toys too - LNs and music and merchandize rights are already in.

Madhouse is dead.
>>
>>121086385
Can't speak for the source material, but I thought it was fine. Going the 12 eps over a year was probably the best move. Shaft probably couldn't have done it like that. They might've drastically changed the art style, too.
>>
>>121086589

Production IG despite making shit continues to develop nicely and can invest resources in child studios and big projects more. Prime fujoshit studio too, they are not past their prime - with all the shit series money they can do more GITS movies and try bigger ambitious projects.

Gainax is dead, but not as dead as Gonzo - their post-mortem series were actually decent (Medaka, C3-Bu) so hopefully they`ll find their new niche and eventually get enougth funding to make a new original anime and "do or die".

Ghibli is not anime.

Triggerfags, ladies and gentlemen.
>>
>>121086893
Now about the upcomming:
PA Works is new KyoAni, probably brightest hope atm, specially with upcomming Charlotte
Diomedea surprisingly developed from one of litterally worst studios in existence to somehow apowerhouse producing multiple decent quality shows same season (also none great)
ARMS finally getting back on track and has great potential IF they`d secure money
MAPPA is certainly to good start and hope will continue like that.
Trigger myth got busted with Daily Battles, so their next show is "do or die" in attempt to maintain their reputation.
WIT is shit.
Ordet seems quite dead.
Liden Films is upcomming new generation.
Tatsunoko is doing a very good return.
Lerche is new gen but doing meh so far.
Seven Arks is great albeit own niche.
Shuka doing quite good so far, also for nearest years its likely only be focused on Drrra!


And not to mention still existing powerhouses like Sunrise, JC Staff, A-1 etc. that are not going anywhere and will continue to churn decent staff season over season for years ahead.
>>
>>121083093
Dogakobo is pretty good.

Gokumi is decent, nothing truly exceptional yet, but nothing really terrible. (Other than video game adaption, but that's a given)
>>
>>121086700
Reread the OP

.>>121086882
Gonzo and Bones have been dead a long time.
>>
>>121086936
Ah, right, I knew I was forgetting something between Kata and Sonico. Jormungand was fucking great.
>>
I can't remember the name of the studio that's doing Rolling Girls but the animation in that show is fucking 90s ova tier sometimes, I definitely look forward to more works from them
>>
>>121083093
Badhouse and Bones have been shit for years now
They have been producing turd after turd.
>>
>>121086980
I hope Dogakobo fixes their mistake of venturing into generic fujoshit and return to makign great generic moeshit.
>>
>>121086986
>Gonzo and Bones have been dead a long time.
They're not dead yet.
>>
>>121083758
Nagi no Asukara was art porn, and damn good art porn at that.

Though I agree with OP, Gainax is kind of like Metallica at this point - had some good hits back in the day but are now just trying to find ways to stay relevant.
>>
>>121087098
Nah they need those fujobucks.

Speaking of fujobucks, poor Wit the one non-fujo anime they are making this season sell like shit. Great taste with that OST though.
>>
>>121083758
PA Works is likely the best studio out there after KyoAni.
>>
>>121087116
Fair enough, they've been "dormant" but AFAIK almost all staff left so, whatever comes out the other side will be a pretty different studio
>>
>>121086959
>I'm a triggerfag for saying Madoka outsold it
Anon, I didn't really care for KlK either way. It was far funner to watch with /a/, but from that season I enjoyed SamFlam far more.

Sorry, the "triggerfag" was only aimed at the first quote.

WIT made AoT so no surprise there, but RG animation went to shit at ep3.
>>
>>121087232

Some combination of Aniplex, Bandai, Pony Canyon and Kadokawa Shoten most likely.

I'm quite interested in some of their film projects lately, like Miss Hokusai.

>>
>>121087327
Somehow I forgot which studios we were talking about, nvm
>>
>>121086589

Most of Kyoani's series music is owned by Lantis. Even the new upcoming one is still Lantis. Their LN properties aren't exactly competing with the likes of Dengeki Bunko any time soon either. Trust me Kyoani is far off from being the next Toei/Sunrise.
>>
>>121087370
One is recap, like Chu2Koi - probably with new scenes like that movie too, but probably only episode worth new footage.

2nd is proper movie though.
>>
>>121087370
It's a meme.
>>
>>121087396
KyoAni makes sure to make songs/character albums by VAs for their most shows. Lantis is producer/destributor but the investment and funding are handled through production commities and KyoAni has its share of profits from it. Similarly as Sunrise gets part of music revenue from LL too.
>>
Violet Ever Garden by KyoAni will be anime of millenium.
