!! Tropes associated with A-1
* ConspicuousCG: They use 3D animation in their works
* MediumBlending: In ''The Making of Kuroshitsuji'', there's a scene in which Hand-Drawn "CG Animators" were in a live action environment (presumably their own CG Department).
* OffModel: Happens at times. [[http://img808.imageshack.us/img808/1841/11757670.jpg This example from Kuroshitsuji with waist-less Claude]] and all of ''Togainu No Chi'' for instance.
* ProductionPosse: Often uses Creator/{{Graphinica}} and [[Creator/TakahashiProduction T2 Studio]] in their productions (generally for composite and CG work). More recently, at least animation-wise, Creator/AsahiProduction has been seeing more use from the company.
* RelationshipVoiceActor: Creator/HarukaTomatsu seems to frequently appear in a lot of shows the studio works on.
* SceneryPorn: Very guilty of it in many of their works.
* SleeperHit: ''Novel/FromTheNewWorld'' which is often regarded to be the best show that the studio has produced. The style of the show is very distant from what the studio usually works on and on top of that is a show that doesn't have much appeal among normal anime viewers. So for it to gain universal acclaim among viewers and slowly grow in popularity over the years was very impressive.
* StartMyOwn: After Mikihiro Iwata left Creator/{{Sunrise}}, he formed A-1 Pictures, with former Sunrise producer Masuo Ueda tagging along.
