[[http://madhouse.co.jp/ Madhouse]] is a highly-regarded Japanese animation studio, probably best known for their adaptation of ''Manga/DeathNote'', their [[Manga/CardcaptorSakura works]] [[Manga/{{Chobits}} with]] Creator/{{CLAMP}}, [[AnimeFirst their]] [[Anime/DennoCoil anime]] [[Anime/{{Kaiba}} first]] shows, and the movies done by Creator/SatoshiKon and [[Anime/TheGirlWhoLeaptThroughTime Mamoru]] [[Anime/SummerWars Hosoda]]. They are also known for doing some of the anime of a mix of western works, for example, ''Anime/HighlanderTheSearchForVengeance'', ''Anime/{{Supernatural}}'', ''Anime/XMen'', and part of the second season of ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks''. As noted, Madhouse had a long relationship with the late Creator/SatoshiKon; they animated every project he directed (''Anime/PerfectBlue'', ''Anime/MillenniumActress'', ''Anime/TokyoGodfathers'', ''Anime/ParanoiaAgent'', ''Literature/{{Paprika}}'', ''Anime/TheDreamMachine'').

The company was first established in 1972 by several former [[MushiProductions Mushi Pro]] staff[[note]]including Osamu Dezaki and Rintaro[[/note]] as an outsourcing unit for Creator/TMSEntertainment.

They have also recently come to develop a relationship with the Baltimore based anime convention: Otakon - with Masao Maruyama now being an honorary regular of the event as well as the studio itself now producing its "intro animations."

The company also owns UsefulNotes/SouthKorea[=n=]-based studios Creator/DRMovie and Creator/MOIAnimation, and a Chinese subsidiary called Anihouse Sun (whose credits will be mentioned on this page). More credits can be found [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/company.php?id=392 here]].

Not to be confused with [[Film/{{Madhouse}} the 1990 movie]].
