'''[[http://www.shaft-web.co.jp/home.html Studio SHAFT]]''', established in 1975, is an animation studio best known for adding an almost constant stream of references and [[ShoutOut shout-outs]] 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. ([[TakeAThirdOption Some people]] think their style is more suited to quirky [[Creator/TimBurton Tim Burton]]/[[Creator/WesAnderson Wes Anderson]]-esque comedies like ''SayonaraZetsubouSensei'' or ''ArakawaUnderTheBridge'' and edgy supernatural drama like ''{{Bakemonogatari}}'' and ''MadokaMagica'', and less to more traditional fare like ''{{Nisekoi}}'' and ''KoufukuGraffiti''.) Oh, and keep one thing in mind: whether the adapted work was originally a WidgetSeries or not, the SHAFT {{anime}} will most likely be one. They were one of the animation studios behind ''WesternAnimation/JayceAndTheWheeledWarriors''.

* '''WidgetSeries''': Many of their shows are this. Even if the source material isn't a WidgetSeries, SHAFT's extra layer of weirdness will turn it into one.

* AnimeFirst: ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' is their first-ever original work (read: not based on any preexisting material).



* ScheduleSlip: They're becoming increasingly infamous for this, due to a company policy of not rejecting work. Though they're generally good at [[EnhancedOnDVD fixing any errors]] on their TV release come the DVD/BD release.
** Justified in the case of ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''. Due to the [[TooSoon 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami]], the final two episodes' airing was delayed for over a month. Creator/GenUrobuchi, who wrote for the series, explained that the slip came as a bit of a relief because they'd been having trouble animating them. When they finally ''did'' air on April 21st, fans could see why. SHAFT ''loves'' its surreal art, after all.
** This was also true for ''WesternAnimation/HulkHogansRockNWrestling'', but it was more [[Creator/DiCEntertainment DiC]]'s fault in that case.
