->''"''['''Gainaxy'?'']'' I never know what people mean when they say that. It started out to mean [[{{Gainaxing}} big, bouncy breasts]], then became [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion existentialist angst]], then became [[Anime/{{FLCL}} hyper-kinetic psycho-sexual slapstick]]. What's it mean now?"\\

* DevelopmentHell
** The ''Evangelion'' Movie they, Creator/ADVFilms, and Creator/{{WETA}} were supposed to make.
** They were also supposedly working on some other ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' projects which ended up in DevelopmentHell.
** Still ''nothing'' beats ''Aoki Uru'', a planned sequel to ''Anime/RoyalSpaceForceTheWingsOfHonneamise'', which supposedly started initial pre-production ''back in 1988''. So far the only output from this project seems to be a brief scenario draft and the couple of (admittedly spectacular) artbooks by Yoshiyuki Sadamoto. They still reportedly plan to make it somewhere in the future.
* FanNickname: The Gainax Pose, which is where the giant robot arms from ''Anime/GunBuster'' and ''Anime/DieBuster'' are crossed in a BadAss way (given a ShoutOut in ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' with the Super Galaxy Gurren Lagann).



* PlayingAgainstType: Out of all the Japanese animation studios available to adapt the ''Manga/HanamaruKindergarten'' manga into a TV show, the choice of Gainax comes as something of a surprise. Then again, does Gainax even have a type? Even considering [[Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt their]] [[Anime/GunBuster most]] [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion popular]] [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann creations]], it's ''very hard'' to find an overarching theme. Blurring the line between {{Deconstruction}} and {{Reconstruction}}, somewhat thoughtful explorations of human nature, and tons and tons of [[{{Gainaxing}} big breasted women]] running, really tons of sexual humor in general. The fact that Gainax would adapt ''Manga/HanamaruKindergarten'' is itself [[MindScrew Gainaxian]]. The overarching theme of Gainax is [[MindScrew Nothing]] [[GainaxEnding makes sense]].



* PromotedFanboy: The studio was founded by a bunch of young anime fans.

As a small note, they have a good relationship with Creator/ProductionIG, who did quite a lot of work on ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion End of Evangelion]]'' and ''Anime/{{FLCL}}''. The director of ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'', and one episode of ''Anime/{{FLCL}}'' also worked with Creator/ProductionIG on ''Anime/DeadLeaves''.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AeDBIwRe2AE Two]] original animated introductory films for ''Daicon III'' and ''Daicon IV'', both iterations of a major {{science fiction}} convention in Japan. These were their first creations, before they had really formed the studio. Due to the truly staggering amounts of shoutouts to both anime and American science fiction in both, plus the latter using Music/ElectricLightOrchestra's song "Twilight", any release above and beyond a laserdisc version in the early '80s have been [[ScrewedByTheLawyers vetoed by pretty much every license holder.]]
