What are your favorite 3 animation studios, /a/?
Dogakobo has been making fantastic comedies for years now but they still don't get the love they deserve.
YKA is good tho. It has consistent art and not much QUALITY, they should hiring Ikuhara or making project with director like Watanabe, Yuuasa, and not by adapting shitty light novel.
in a short, just do like what MAPPA did.

A creative powerhouse, very good quality even in low budget, innovative and original but is shit nowadays becouse many of the founders left.
Notable works include: Evangelion, Royal Space Force, FLCL and Nadia
Highest quality possible, even if airing 2-3 shows on the same season, masterful adapations, home of Satoshi Kon.
Notable works include: Kon's Films, Tatami Galaxy, Cardcaptor Sakura, Black Lagoon, Death Note, among others great adapations
Great all around, good adapations and good original projects, very good on actions scenes with lots of stylish and coreographed fights.
Notable works include: Sword of the Stranger, Fullmetal Alchemist, Darker than Black and Eureka Seven
