Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Who's the studio that baits otaku dick

By adding sex appeal to all the underage chicks?

SHAFT!

2000px-Studio Shaft.svg.png

Animation studio best known for adding an almost constant stream of references and shouts out to other series in the backgrounds of their shows. This usually manifests itself as writing on blackboards and posters which change with every cut. Also known for having a somewhat minimalist yet oddly stylish bent to their own productions. One of the more divisive anime studios. People either love the style or hate it. Middle ground is rare.

Oh, and keep one thing in mind: whether the adapted work was originally a Widget Series or not, the Shaft anime will most likely be one. They were also one of the animation studios behind Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors.

Akiyuki Shinbo has been their primary director since 2004, and is responsible for much of their present image.

Note that some fans refer to this just as "Shaft". Do not confuse this with a badass mother- (SHUT YO' MOUTH!), or a minor character of the same name in two Castlevania games.
