Yes, this is an often-discussed topic but having the new season out made me realise how true it is. You can really tell what type of show it’s going to be, just by who made it. This is regardless of source material, directors and other cast/staff. See the studio, and the same stuff come to mind. Here’s a short list and see if you agree.
Bad animation, crappy colours and hideously drawn fanservice. Without fail. I almost always quit watching Xebec shows. See how the new Kyou no Go no Ni suffers from this straightaway.
Widely anticipated, generally little obvious 3D CG used. Lots of online discussion about inane crap, like whether Lelouch is dead. The show will always be watched till the end, and we will always enjoy it but shout "trainwreck!" in glee. Always have mecha.
You always get a show that has a mild colour palette deserved to relieve stress. And the show gets boring and we all drop it.
Episode 1s always delight. The quality and consistency remain quite good and you can count on them to make watchable shows. They always stick to the same artistes for music, so expect to hear lots of the same singer’s songs.
This up and coming studio always features decent quality anime with a hint of gay sex undertone.
Lots of cheap looking CG, decent action and large boobs, set in a scifi world with mecha.
Interesting, unique, fresh concepts that are a lot more daring and gory than the other studios.
Pretentious, hit or miss with fresh ideas.
Awesome visuals with many references to themselves or otaku culture. You can expect sparkly backgrounds, pretty girls and groundbreaking concepts catering to otaku pandering.
Long running bad animation that cater to mainstream people. Expect shounen.
Slick, slick action and fluid animation, great story and probably highest hit to miss ratio. Generally has the most superpowers.
Crazy visuals that are pointless.
Edited for more!
Mind-boggling, high production values, famous directors and oozes class. Sometimes so boring everyone gives up, but pretends to have enjoyed it.
