About The Art of Studio Gainax

The Art of Studio Gainax features story and art by Dani Cavallaro.

Formed by a small group of university students in the early 1980's, Studio Gainax is now one of the most adventurous and widely esteemed anime companies on the scene. Formal experimentation, genre-straddling, self-reflexivity, unpredictable plot twists, a gourmet palate for stylishness, proverbially controversial endings, and a singularly iconoclastic worldview are some of the hallmarks of its unique approach to animation.

This documentation of the studio's achievements provides a critical overview of both the company and its films: in-depth examinations of particular titles that best represent the company's overall work, including television series such as Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water and Neon Genesis Evangelion, and feature films such as Royal Space Force: The Wings of Honneamise and Gunbuster vs. Diebuster. Each chapter highlights the contribution made by a specific production to the company's progress.
