From 2010 until 2014, the studio shifted focus from adapting works from outside sources (not completely -- they still did ''Hyouka'' within this time period), to producing works from their own in-house publishing house. They have an annual writer's competition to see which author gets their work published, but oddly enough no one that has actually "won" the competition have had their works adapted until we get Violet Evergarden some time in the future, -- indeed the ones usually getting adapted into anime (see ''LightNovel/LoveChunibyoAndOtherDelusions'', ''LightNovel/BeyondTheBoundary'', and ''LightNovel/MyriadColorsPhantomWorld'') are actually ''the honorable mentions''. The shows from this period onward tend to be hit-and-miss as a result, as far as sales success go.

In the wake of ''K-On!'', the studio also became known for the distinctness of character designs it used ''across different series'' (the latter of which is called derisively by critics of the studio as the "KyoAni Homogenizer"). Indeed, you can put Yui (from ''Manga/KOn''), Chitanda (from ''Literature/{{Hyouka}}''), Tamako (from ''Anime/TamakoMarket''), and Mirai (from ''LightNovel/BeyondTheBoundary'') in one place, and you wouldn't know they were from different shows. The only exceptions from this were ''Manga/{{Nichijou}}'' and ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'', which instead used the original mangas' more simplistic styles.

** ''Manga/LuckyStar'' has innumerable {{Shout Out}}s to ''Haruhi'', being the favorite show of the OtakuSurrogate Konata... [[ActorAllusion who is voiced by Aya Hirano, Haruhi's voice actress]]. Konata uses a ''Hare Hare Yukai'' and later ''Koi no Mikuru Densetsu'' ringtone, has a big collection of ''Haruhi'' merchandise, [[CosplayOtakuGirl cosplays as Haruhi]] at the cafe where she works, and much, much more. After all, [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cit_lucky_star_advertisement.jpg "This is advertisement for us, so it's better!"]] These inside references are anime-only, and are not found anywhere in the manga on which it is based.Similarly, Kagami's favourite series happens to be ''Lightnovel/FullMetalPanic'', leading to {{Shout Out}}s in that direction as well. (Oddly enough, Tsukasa's favourite series is ''Manga/SgtFrog'', which also has its fair share of {{Shout Out}}s, despite being a Creator/{{Sunrise}} show. In the same vein, Konata is a fan of ''Anime/CodeGeass'', also produced by Sunrise, and they manage a few {{Shout Out}}s for it too.) Not surprising at all, since Kyoani is affiliated with Sunrise, so it's a ShoutOut to their parent company. And of course, as pictured, when the girls go on a field trip to Kyoto... well, where does Konata want to visit?

After nearly five years of in-house work, KyoAni returned to adapting outside series, with Shouji Gato's ''LightNovel/AmagiBrilliantPark'', and ''Literature/SoundEuphonium'' by Ayano Takeda, the latter of which got a second season airing at the end of 2016.
