[[http://www.tms-e.co.jp TMS Entertainment]] (short for Tokyo Movie Shinsha, also credited as TMS-Kyokuchi or Tokyo Movie on occasion) is one of the oldest and most well-known (both in Japan ''and'' overseas) producers of {{Anime}} in the world. Their most famous works are ''Manga/LupinIII'' and ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures''. They have also done various other anime, including ''[[Franchise/{{Anpanman}} Soreike! Anpanman]]'', ''Anime/SonicX'', ''Manga/DetectiveConan'', ''LilPri'', ''Anime/{{Ulysses 31}}'', ''Anime/{{Hamtaro}}'' and ''BakuganBattleBrawlers'', and even some full length feature films, such as ''Manga/{{Akira}}'' and ''Anime/LittleNemoAdventuresInSlumberland''. Outside of Anime, they are also one of the best and most recognized overseas animation studios in the world. Their [[AnimationBump high quality work]] first popped up in the early '80s, when they did animation for Creator/{{Filmation}}'s ''The New Adventures of Franchise/{{Zorro}}'' [[note]]and, of course, knowing Filmation's reputation for [[OffModel cheap]] [[LimitedAnimation animation]], it was a sight to see[[/note]], as well as Creator/DiC's cartoons back in the day. Soon enough, Creator/{{Disney}} and Creator/WarnerBros joined the list of clients, giving us glorious animation in shows such as ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' and ''TheNewAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh'' from Disney, and ''Tiny Toon Adventures'', ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', and, of course, ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' Warner Bros., on the Japanese side of clients, we have Shogakukan with ''Detective Conan'' and ''Hamtaro'', Kodansha with ''Ohayo! Spank'' and ''Manga/KaitouSaintTail'' and Shueisha with ''Manga/DokonjoGaeru'' and ''Manga/DGrayMan''. Starting off as a independent studio when the studio was founded in 1964. They were sold off to Creator/{{Sega}}-Kyokuchi in 1992 when the studio's founder Yutaka Fujioka left to retire (hence the name of their 1996-1999 productions as TMS-Kyokuchi. They were renamed to TMS Entertainment in 2000) and again in 2005 during the [=SegaSammy=] merger. In spite of their glory, their foreign workload has met a sharp decline, thanks to factors such as rising prices (as well as their surprisingly [[OffModel disappointing]] work after TMS shipped off their own works to cheaper studios in Japan as well as in Korea and China, and the less said about most of the episodes (animation wise) of ''{{Spider-Man The Animated Series}}'' or ''WeissKreuz'' the better[[note]]though [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=254 the later was a co-production with Studio DEEN, which might explain the animation quality in that one]][[/note]]). The 2011 earthquake on Japan hasn't helped matters either. Whatever the case may be, TMS decided to focus mostly on anime (either their own or others, see below). The clients they once had have since moved to other studios. Creator/{{Disney}} opened its own overseas studio in Japan, using them for a while before dumping them in 2004, as well as using other Asian studios, like Creator/ToonCity and [[RoughDraftStudios Rough Draft]]. {{Creator/DiC}}, in its twilight years, used various other Asian studios[[note]]including KKC&D, SeiYoung, Spectrum and {{Saerom}}[[/note]] after ''Literature/TheLittles'' (which itself was taken over by StudioGallop in season three). Creator/WarnerBros likewise ended its ties with TMS after ''Film/WakkosWish'' and ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker'', instead going for cheaper animation studios like MoiAnimation (most of the DC showcase shorts), Creator/JMAnimation (the Jonah Hex short), Creator/LottoAnimation and DongWooAnimation in Korea and Toon City as well (with WangFilmProductions on occasion). They did reunite with TMS for ''WesternAnimation/GreenLanternFirstFlight'', ''JusticeLeagueDoom'' and ''WesternAnimation/SupermanVsTheElite''. Even with all of these factors, TMS still manages to be ahead of the game with its many animated productions. They were also one of the minds behind the channel {{Animax}} (With ToeiAnimation, {{Sunrise}} and {{Sony}}) and the web site [[http://www.daisuki.net Daisuki]] (with Toei Animation, Sunrise, Sony, Nihon Ad Systems, Dentsu and Asatsu-DK). ---- [[index]] [[foldercontrol]] [[folder:Units of TMS]] In Japan. * [[http://www.telecom-anime.com Telecom Animation Film]]: Founded in 1975 so that TMS can compete in western markets as pure American animation was [[MoneyDearBoy started to become expensive]] (and [[LimitedAnimation stilted]]). The studio didn't start doing productions until 1977 (said production came out in 1978). Their first product was a show called ''Obake Chan'', which is very unknown. Afterwards, Telecom did a number of episodes of Manga/LupinIII series 2, ''Anime/TheCastleOfCagliostro'', and started production on Anime/{{Little Nemo|Adventures in Slumberland}} (which [[DevelopmentHell started in 1978 and was finished eleven years after]]). From the '80s and '90s most of their productions were made for US markets[[note]]as the western productions from DiC and Creator/{{Disney}} were taking time away from Anime/{{Little Nemo|Adventures in Slumberland}}. This was one of the reasons why the movie was taking so long[[/note]]. The studio is known for some of the best animation in history, and also does their own productions outside of TMS as well. * TMS Photo:Sometimes known as Toms Photo, founded in 1988 to do digital effects on ''AKIRA'', TMS Photo is TMS's digital effects and coloring unit. * TMS Music * Studio Sakimakura: A more recent studio, the studio was founded in March of 2011, and has worked on ''{{Bakugan}}'' (''Mechtanium Surge'' series), ''Anime/CardfightVanguard'' and ''Brave 10''. * A-Productions:Founded in 1965 to help out TMS during Fujiko Pro's large work load, A-Pro split off from TMS in 1976 when TMS replaced them with Telecom, from then on A-Pro became Shin-Ei Doga. In South Korea. * KokoEnterprises[=/=]Dong Yang: They're owned by TMS, but the studios run on their own. Best known for their work on ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''. * MizoPlanning * SeoulMovie [[/folder]] [[folder:Studios founded by Ex TMS staff Members]] * [[ShinEiDoga Shin-Ei Doga]]: After A-Pro split off from TMS, they got 98% of their stocks, 90% of it was sold to TVAsahi, 8% of it became Shin-Ei Doga. The 2% TMS did not give out to A-Pro was put into Telecom. As of 2010, the studio is now 100% owned by TVAsahi. * StudioGallop: To some extent, the studio itself was founded in 1972. But the animation unit not until 1977 after TMS fired a bunch of staff after [[OffModel how badly they messed up Episode 72 of Lupin III series 2]]. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Which Yasuo Otsuka have to redo almost the whole thing by himself]], they stayed at Gallop until 1990 when they were fired again because Gallop wanted to improve their image, after that they formed... ** TokyoKids: Often labeled as [[OffModel one of the worst outsourcing studios used by TMS]]. They're also behind the animation in ''GalleryFake'' and the 2007 ''TowardTheTerra'' series. * KKCAndDAsia: Formed by Tetsuo Katayama and Shigeru Akagawa in 1983 because of the way Anime/{{Little Nemo|Adventures in Slumberland}} was going, the studio mostly did shows for DiC with their biggest project being ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters''. The studio shut down in 2000 due to becoming too expensive for the US to ship off productions to Japan and failing to compete in the anime market. Most of the staff now work for ProductionIG. * StudioGhibli: To some extent, HayaoMiyazaki and a few others got their start at ToeiAnimation. * Creator/SpectrumAnimation: Formed in 1988, the studio's first job was to supervise the [[SeiYoung Korean]] [[{{Saerom}} studios]] responsible for ''CaptainNTheGameMaster''. The company's first (and only) big break was on ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', providing animation to episodes like "Robin's Reckoning Part 1" and to the movie ''Mask of the Phantasm''. The studio also did some work for Cinar as well. But, much like KK C&D, they were unable to compete in the anime market and shut down in 1998. Most of their staff, like KK C&D's, now work for Production I.G. * [[Creator/WaltDisneyAnimationUnits Walt Disney Animation Japan]]: Founded by Motoyoshi Tokunaga in 1988 as Michael Eisner was opening up a unit in Japan[[note]]after he bought out Pacific Animation Corp.[[/note]] and was giving him more money to run the studio. The studio stayed open until 2004, when Disney got rid of most of their traditional animation units[[note]]however, Roy E. Disney and JohnLasseter did save the UsefulNotes/LosAngeles unit, and the Australia unit stayed open until 2007[[/note]]. After that most of their staff members went to work for Creator/{{Madhouse}}, Creator/StudioPierrot or Production I.G. The ones who did stick with Tokunaga went on to become... ** Creator/TheAnswerStudio: Formed by Tokunaga after the closure of Walt Disney Animation Japan, The studio did a number of shows and DTV movies including ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'', ''Manga/{{Golgo 13}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/BatmanUnderTheRedHood''. * Creator/{{Ufotable}}: Founded in 2000 as TMS [[WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker was halting western productions]].

Just compare them to say {{AKOM}}, Toei or Creator/FreelanceAnimatorsNewZealand and you understand why. * CashCowFranchise: Most of TMS's western productions (Primarily with Warner Bros. and Disney). On the anime side, we have ''Lupin III'', ''Bakugan'', ''Anpanman'' and ''Detective Conan''. * ConspicuousCG: ''{{Bakugan}}'' and ''LilPri'' have this '''IN SPADES!''' ** ''WesternAnimation/GreenLanternFirstFlight'' as well, and the [[AllCGICartoon all CG show]] ''Hamtaro Hai'' (and the new content in the 1st show's rebroadcast ''Dechu'', and parts of the 4 movies). ** But to be fair, TMS tends to ship off most of its CG work to a studio called SMDE[[note]]ShogakukanMusicAndDigitalEntertainment for the initial-declined[[/note]] and other Japanese studios (like Creator/{{Ufotable}} on ''Anime/SonicX'') or by their TMS Photo and Telecom units. ** Their most recent logo opening is practically [[AllCGICartoon filled with this]]. * DoingItForTheArt * IconicLogo * InternationalCoproduction: Some North American projects (''Visionaries'', ''Bionic Six'' and ''Inspector Gadget'', to name a few). * LimitedAnimation: Justified throughout the '60s and '70s, as practically everyone, even Disney was doing it due to incredibly low budgets. However like most anime, it sill largely serves as the norm. They do tend to fare better than other studios (With some exceptions as shown below). * LongRunners: Several. * OffModel: Even they're guilty of this. Mostly seen in their work from the '70s, ''Spider-Man'' and ''Weiss Kreuz''. For more recent offenders, there's ''Kenichi'', ''Sonic X'', ''Hamtaro'' and ''Bakugan''. * TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation: One of the first studios '''''to''''' break from [[TheDarkAgeOfAnimation the "Dark Age"]].

[[http://www.tms-e.co.jp TMS Entertainment]] (short for Tokyo Movie Shinsha, also credited as TMS-Kyokuchi or Tokyo Movie on occasion) is one of the oldest and most well-known (both in Japan ''and'' overseas) producers of {{Anime}} in the world. Their most famous works are ''Manga/LupinIII'' and ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures''. They have also done various other anime, including ''[[Franchise/{{Anpanman}} Soreike! Anpanman]]'', ''Anime/SonicX'', ''Manga/DetectiveConan'', ''LilPri'', ''Anime/{{Ulysses 31}}'', ''Anime/{{Hamtaro}}'' and ''BakuganBattleBrawlers'', and even some full length feature films, such as ''Manga/{{Akira}}'' and ''Anime/LittleNemoAdventuresInSlumberland''. Outside of Anime, they are also one of the best and most recognized overseas animation studios in the world. Their [[AnimationBump high quality work]] first popped up in the early '80s, when they did animation for Creator/{{Filmation}}'s ''The New Adventures of Franchise/{{Zorro}}'' [[note]]and, of course, knowing Filmation's reputation for [[OffModel cheap]] [[LimitedAnimation animation]], it was a sight to see[[/note]], as well as Creator/DiC's cartoons back in the day. Soon enough, Creator/{{Disney}} and Creator/WarnerBros joined the list of clients, giving us glorious animation in shows such as ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' and ''TheNewAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh'' from Disney, and ''Tiny Toon Adventures'', ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', and, of course, ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' Warner Bros., on the Japanese side of clients, we have Shogakukan with ''Detective Conan'' and ''Hamtaro'', Kodansha with ''Ohayo! Spank'' and ''Manga/KaitouSaintTail'' and Shueisha with ''Manga/DokonjoGaeru'' and ''Manga/DGrayMan''. Starting off as a independent studio when the studio was founded in 1964. They were sold off to Creator/{{Sega}}-Kyokuchi in 1992 when the studio's founder Yutaka Fujioka left to retire (hence the name of their 1996-1999 productions as TMS-Kyokuchi. They were renamed to TMS Entertainment in 2000) and again in 2005 during the [=SegaSammy=] merger. In spite of their glory, their foreign workload has met a sharp decline, thanks to factors such as rising prices (as well as their surprisingly [[OffModel disappointing]] work after TMS shipped off their own works to cheaper studios in Japan as well as in Korea and China, and the less said about most of the episodes (animation wise) of ''{{Spider-Man The Animated Series}}'' or ''WeissKreuz'' the better[[note]]though [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=254 the later was a co-production with Studio DEEN, which might explain the animation quality in that one]][[/note]]). The 2011 earthquake on Japan hasn't helped matters either. Whatever the case may be, TMS decided to focus mostly on anime (either their own or others, see below). The clients they once had have since moved to other studios. Creator/{{Disney}} opened its own overseas studio in Japan, using them for a while before dumping them in 2004, as well as using other Asian studios, like Creator/ToonCity and [[RoughDraftStudios Rough Draft]]. {{Creator/DiC}}, in its twilight years, used various other Asian studios[[note]]including KKC&D, SeiYoung, Spectrum and {{Saerom}}[[/note]] after ''Literature/TheLittles'' (which itself was taken over by StudioGallop in season three). Creator/WarnerBros likewise ended its ties with TMS after ''Film/WakkosWish'' and ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker'', instead going for cheaper animation studios like MoiAnimation (most of the DC showcase shorts), Creator/JMAnimation (the Jonah Hex short), Creator/LottoAnimation and DongWooAnimation in Korea and Toon City as well (with WangFilmProductions on occasion). They did reunite with TMS for ''WesternAnimation/GreenLanternFirstFlight'', ''JusticeLeagueDoom'' and ''WesternAnimation/SupermanVsTheElite''. Even with all of these factors, TMS still manages to be ahead of the game with its many animated productions. They were also one of the minds behind the channel {{Animax}} (With ToeiAnimation, {{Sunrise}} and {{Sony}}) and the web site [[http://www.daisuki.net Daisuki]] (with Toei Animation, Sunrise, Sony, Nihon Ad Systems, Dentsu and Asatsu-DK). ---- [[index]] [[foldercontrol]] [[folder:Units of TMS]] In Japan. * [[http://www.telecom-anime.com Telecom Animation Film]]: Founded in 1975 so that TMS can compete in western markets as pure American animation was [[MoneyDearBoy started to become expensive]] (and [[LimitedAnimation stilted]]). The studio didn't start doing productions until 1977 (said production came out in 1978). Their first product was a show called ''Obake Chan'', which is very unknown. Afterwards, Telecom did a number of episodes of Manga/LupinIII series 2, ''Anime/TheCastleOfCagliostro'', and started production on Anime/{{Little Nemo|Adventures in Slumberland}} (which [[DevelopmentHell started in 1978 and was finished eleven years after]]). From the '80s and '90s most of their productions were made for US markets[[note]]as the western productions from DiC and Creator/{{Disney}} were taking time away from Anime/{{Little Nemo|Adventures in Slumberland}}. This was one of the reasons why the movie was taking so long[[/note]]. The studio is known for some of the best animation in history, and also does their own productions outside of TMS as well. * TMS Photo:Sometimes known as Toms Photo, founded in 1988 to do digital effects on ''AKIRA'', TMS Photo is TMS's digital effects and coloring unit. * TMS Music * Studio Sakimakura: A more recent studio, the studio was founded in March of 2011, and has worked on ''{{Bakugan}}'' (''Mechtanium Surge'' series), ''Anime/CardfightVanguard'' and ''Brave 10''. * A-Productions:Founded in 1965 to help out TMS during Fujiko Pro's large work load, A-Pro split off from TMS in 1976 when TMS replaced them with Telecom, from then on A-Pro became Shin-Ei Doga. In South Korea. * KokoEnterprises[=/=]Dong Yang: They're owned by TMS, but the studios run on their own. Best known for their work on ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''. * MizoPlanning * SeoulMovie [[/folder]] [[folder:Studios founded by Ex TMS staff Members]] * [[ShinEiDoga Shin-Ei Doga]]: After A-Pro split off from TMS, they got 98% of their stocks, 90% of it was sold to TVAsahi, 8% of it became Shin-Ei Doga. The 2% TMS did not give out to A-Pro was put into Telecom. As of 2010, the studio is now 100% owned by TVAsahi. * StudioGallop: To some extent, the studio itself was founded in 1972. But the animation unit not until 1977 after TMS fired a bunch of staff after [[OffModel how badly they messed up Episode 72 of Lupin III series 2]]. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Which Yasuo Otsuka have to redo almost the whole thing by himself]], they stayed at Gallop until 1990 when they were fired again because Gallop wanted to improve their image, after that they formed... ** TokyoKids: Often labeled as [[OffModel one of the worst outsourcing studios used by TMS]]. They're also behind the animation in ''GalleryFake'' and the 2007 ''TowardTheTerra'' series. * KKCAndDAsia: Formed by Tetsuo Katayama and Shigeru Akagawa in 1983 because of the way Anime/{{Little Nemo|Adventures in Slumberland}} was going, the studio mostly did shows for DiC with their biggest project being ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters''. The studio shut down in 2000 due to becoming too expensive for the US to ship off productions to Japan and failing to compete in the anime market. Most of the staff now work for ProductionIG. * StudioGhibli: To some extent, HayaoMiyazaki and a few others got their start at ToeiAnimation. * Creator/SpectrumAnimation: Formed in 1988, the studio's first job was to supervise the [[SeiYoung Korean]] [[{{Saerom}} studios]] responsible for ''CaptainNTheGameMaster''. The company's first (and only) big break was on ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', providing animation to episodes like "Robin's Reckoning Part 1" and to the movie ''Mask of the Phantasm''. The studio also did some work for Cinar as well. But, much like KK C&D, they were unable to compete in the anime market and shut down in 1998. Most of their staff, like KK C&D's, now work for Production I.G. * [[Creator/WaltDisneyAnimationUnits Walt Disney Animation Japan]]: Founded by Motoyoshi Tokunaga in 1988 as Michael Eisner was opening up a unit in Japan[[note]]after he bought out Pacific Animation Corp.[[/note]] and was giving him more money to run the studio. The studio stayed open until 2004, when Disney got rid of most of their traditional animation units[[note]]however, Roy E. Disney and JohnLasseter did save the UsefulNotes/LosAngeles unit, and the Australia unit stayed open until 2007[[/note]]. After that most of their staff members went to work for Creator/{{Madhouse}}, Creator/StudioPierrot or Production I.G. The ones who did stick with Tokunaga went on to become... ** Creator/TheAnswerStudio: Formed by Tokunaga after the closure of Walt Disney Animation Japan, The studio did a number of shows and DTV movies including ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'', ''Manga/{{Golgo 13}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/BatmanUnderTheRedHood''. * Creator/{{Ufotable}}: Founded in 2000 as TMS [[WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker was halting western productions]]. The studio is best known for their adaptation of ''LightNovel/FateZero''. [[/folder]] [[folder:Noteworthy staff]] Noteworthy TMS staff members include (also counting their Telecom unit): [[AC:executives and producers]] * Yutaka Fujioka: Founder of TMS, he retired in 1992[[note]]some say that he left in 1989 because of Little Nemo's bombing, however he was in a ''Tiny Toons'' staff photo shot in 1990, which debunks that. [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fujioka_sama_9191.jpg Here's]] a picture of him, and [[http://cartoonatics.blogspot.com/2010/09/warner-bros-animation-staff-circa-1990.html the full photo]]; to compare with older pictures of him, [[http://www.nicozon.net/watch/sm10232072 here]] is a photo of him and other TMS staff members during production on Anime/{{Little Nemo|Adventures in Slumberland}}; the latter photo is a video, but he is in the very start of the video[[/note]].

On the anime side, we have ''Lupin III'', ''Bakugan'', ''Anpanman'' and ''Detective Conan''. * ConspicuousCG: ''{{Bakugan}}'' and ''LilPri'' have this '''IN SPADES!''' ** ''WesternAnimation/GreenLanternFirstFlight'' as well, and the [[AllCGICartoon all CG show]] ''Hamtaro Hai'' (and the new content in the 1st show's rebroadcast ''Dechu'', and parts of the 4 movies). ** But to be fair, TMS tends to ship off most of its CG work to a studio called SMDE[[note]]ShogakukanMusicAndDigitalEntertainment for the initial-declined[[/note]] and other Japanese studios (like Creator/{{Ufotable}} on ''Anime/SonicX'') or by their TMS Photo and Telecom units. ** Their most recent logo opening is practically [[AllCGICartoon filled with this]]. * DoingItForTheArt * IconicLogo * InternationalCoproduction: Some North American projects (''Visionaries'', ''Bionic Six'' and ''Inspector Gadget'', to name a few). * LimitedAnimation: Justified throughout the '60s and '70s, as practically everyone, even Disney was doing it due to incredibly low budgets. However like most anime, it sill largely serves as the norm. They do tend to fare better than other studios (With some exceptions as shown below). * LongRunners: Several. * OffModel: Even they're guilty of this. Mostly seen in their work from the '70s, ''Spider-Man'' and ''Weiss Kreuz''. For more recent offenders, there's ''Kenichi'', ''Sonic X'', ''Hamtaro'' and ''Bakugan''. * TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation: One of the first studios '''''to''''' break from [[TheDarkAgeOfAnimation the "Dark Age"]].
