(Oh don't mind me, I'm just excited for MAPPA's Dororo adaptation, even though Hyakkimaru's redesign looks like a hobo Sasuke. I'm fine with the hobo part, not the Sasuke part. Besides everyone knows the equation "Studio Mappa + Osamu Tezuka's work + the director of Rurouni Kenshin: Trust & Betrayal = Gold")

Today's rate the Japanese Animation Studio segment features MAPPA, which was an animation studio established by Madhouse co-founder and former director Masao Murayama after leaving the company. They're well known for their works Terror in Resonance, Yuri On Ice and Inuyashiki.

But seriously I'm just excited for Dororo.

Here's a list of past segments:

Among the better animation studios, I think I'll give them a 7.5/8.

Please do one about Toei eventually lol

Kids on the Slope is honestly in my top 10, the rest of their stuff usually range from "that was good" to "okay, whatever, alright". Hard 7 low 8

@yassassin: off topic but I just have to ask because I've been looking for a fellow Yoshitaka Amano fan in this site for so long.

Is that an Angel's Egg avatar you got there?
