A-1 Pictures

A-1 Pictures was founded in May 2005 by Aniplex Inc, as an animation studio with the purpose of focusing further efforts in high quality and reliable production and delivery of its contents. As a group company of Aniplex Inc, which is aiming to become a multi-business corporation with animation at its core, A-1 Pictures will strive to think outside of the box and build itself upon new concepts. At our Asagaya Studio, which is scheduled for completion this fall, we will keep in challenge ourselves to digitalise our production lines and to produce 3D animations and other visual products that adopt cutting edge technologies. Furthermore, it is my belief that, by establishing new environments and systems for animation production, A-1 Pictures will become a highly efficient collaborator and a producing partner for studios both in Japan and overseas.
