YMMV: Studio Gainax
- Broken Base: It's the Trope Namer for Gainax Ending. Broken Base is all over the place.
- In Name Only: It's been said that Gainax has become this since 2011. Studio Trigger is generally considered the Spiritual Successor to what Gainax was.
- Magnum Opus: Probably either Neon Genesis Evangelion or Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, although some would say it's FLCL.
- Visual Effects of Awesome: At times, their animation can look downright gorgeous. Just look at the last few episodes of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann or End of Evangelion (though admittedly, they worked with Production I.G on the latter, who are also known for awesome effects).
