Today's rate the Japanese Animation Segment features A-1 Pictures which was established back in 2005.

I give them a 4 personally. Occasionally bringing up gems like From The New World and Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash but it's always hidden under a dumpster pile of mediocre or plain bad media productions and terrible working conditions.
