A production company founded by Creator/{{Sunrise}} alumnus Masahiko Minami, [[http://www.bones.co.jp/ Studio Bones]] produces a wide range of different anime genres. BONES productions are noted for their consistent, high quality animation and character designs, specializing in crazy, exaggerated acting. They've also gained a fair bit of infamy as well for their frequent use of {{Gecko Ending}}s.

!!Tropes that recur frequently in BONES works are:

* AnimationBump: Like Creator/{{TMS|Entertainment}}, it's there on so many levels.
* ConspicuousCG: Appears every now and again.
* AuthorAppeal: An older male transvestite has appeared in ''Anime/CowboyBebop'', ''Anime/WolfsRain'', ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'', and ''[[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood]]'' and has an expanded role in the latter. ''Anime/KurauPhantomMemory'' is about two women who live like a couple. ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' is about a girl who dresses up as a boy.
* EverythingsBetterWithRainbows: ''Anime/EurekaSeven'' ''Anime/XamdLostMemories'', and ''Anime/StarDriver'' among others, play this straight. Rainbows are used as symbols a lot, as well as other things. It's frequently used in explosions and blasts of energy.
* OffModel: Due to their exaggerated animation, it can happen both deliberately and unintentionally.
** Also like most Japanese studios, bad outsourcing as well.
* SceneryPorn: To the point that they might actually rival Creator/HayaoMiyazaki films every now and then.
* StartMyOwn: It was founded by Masahiko Minami after he left Creator/{{Sunrise}}.
