Creator: Actas

Actas is a Japanese studio largely known as the studio that almost ruined the Transformers Anime.

Established in 1986 by Ex-Tatsunoko Production staff members as a unit of Production Reed and went solo in 1998, the company has provided animation for close to 100 different Anime (and two North American productions, see below). More of which can be found on Anime News Network.

Tropes associated with Actas:

  • Animation Bump: Occasionally, most notably in certain scenes of Girls und Panzer, such as the scene in episode 12 where Miho jumps from tank to tank to help the Rabbit Team.
  • Conspicuous CG: Present in Tactical Roar, X-Driver, Girls und Panzer and Transformers Energon (and are mocked constantly for the latter).
  • Executive Meddling: Cartoon Network is partially to blame for the animation in Transformers Armada.
  • Medium Blending: See Conspicuous CG.
  • Off Model: A reason why they're mocked by Transformers fans. Some consider them to be worse then AKOM. Example.
