Today's rate the Japanese animation studio segment features Kinema Citrus. This animation studio has been making big waves over the past few years. They're known for making the slice-of-life series "Barakamon" which is surprisingly pretty good and the polarizing new isekai series known as "The Rising Of The Shield Hero" which is honestly just your generic fantasy underdog series with only a certain notable twist that makes it known.
However, my personal favorite work from the studio is the fantasy series known as "Made In Abyss", which is filled with incredible and gorgeously detailed world building, memorable and intriguing characters (Some you'd love, some you'd love to hate *cough* Bondrewd (great villain, though) *cough*) and intriguing ideas on Philosophy. Plus. you get Kevin Penkin's memorable soundtrack.
I mean seriously, just listen to this tune!
So freaking great.
