The homies over at Japan Cinema are always cookin’ up some cool lists. Recently, they broke down the best anime studios. Here’s the top 5.

5. Gainax (Evangelion, Gurren Laggan, and Shikabane Hime)
4. Sunrise (Inuyasha, Gundam Seed, and Cowboy Bebop)
3. Kyoto Animation (K-ON!, Clannad After Story, and Lucky Star)
2. Bones (Darker / Black, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Eureka 7)
1. Madhouse Studios (Shiguru: Death Frenzy, Death Note, and Trigun)

They actually go into detail about why each studio deserves their place, so if you were ever curious about the teams behind your favorite animes, definitely check it out here. I’m going to just go ahead and say J.C. Staff (ranked 9th) has made two of my favorite animes of all time, Azumanga Daioh, and Honey and Clover. I’m also going to say, yeah, I am aware that these are shojo anime titles (“for girls”). BUT YO, CAN I LIVE!?!?!
