Madhouse (マッドハウス) 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/DennouCoil anime]] [[Anime/{{Kaiba}} first]] shows, and the movies of Creator/SatoshiKon and Creator/MamoruHosoda. 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 established in 1972 by several former [[Creator/MushiProductions Mushi Pro]] staff--including Masao Maruyama, Osamu Dezaki, Rintaro, and Yoshiaki Kawajiri--as an outsourcing unit for Creator/TMSEntertainment. Maruyama left the company in 2011 to start Creator/{{MAPPA}}, which resulted in a significant number of staff leaving and marked the EndOfAnAge. Post-2011 Madhouse is in the process of fashioning a new identity for itself.

They have also come to develop a relationship with the Baltimore based anime convention Otakon, with Masao Maruyama now being an honorary regular of the event while the studio itself produces its "intro animations."

The company also owns UsefulNotes/SouthKorea[=n=]-based studios Creator/DRMovie, Creator/MOIAnimation and 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]].
