Guide to Studios

NAME: Artland



FOUNDED IN: 1978




MOST WELL RECEIVED: Legend of the Galactic Heroes, Macross, Mushishi



MOST POPULAR WORKS: Bokura ga Ita, Mushishi, Gunslinger Girl, Katekyo Hitman Reborn!



OTHER RECOGNIZABLE WORKS: Demon King Daimao, Earl & Fairy, Senran Kagura



KNOWN FOR: Mediocrity



OBJECTIVE ANALYSIS: Artland is pretty small compared to other studios, and considering how long they've been around. They generally assist other studios for in-between animation and such. As of now they haven't even produced twenty separate series of their own. They're generally regarded as a crap studio, as many of their anime go overlooked and ignored altogether.Though theyhave some notable exceptions (i.e. Mushishi).



SUBJECTIVE ANALYSIS: I haven't seen two of their big shows: Katekyo Hitman Reborn! and Bokura ga Ita. I've read both series' mangas, though. Since most of their stuff is shit that even I don't feel like wasting my time on, I've only seen a fraction of their already small body of work. The only Artland stuff I like are the series listed next to "most well received."
