GONZO is known for its progressive style, using detailed backgrounds, [[OffModel uneven animation]] and [[ThreeDEffectsTwoDCartoon large amounts of CG]], as well as a preference for adventure stories. Although their plots and pacing can suffer due to an emphasis on {{Rule of Cool}}, their characters often compensate for this. They often have difficulty ending a series, and their adaptations of existing manga are somewhat infamous.

* ConspicuousCG: Many, ''many'' of their shows use it.

Added DiffLines:

** However, the blocks were reinstated with the premiere of Phantasy Star Online 2: Episode Oracle, as the anime was blocked worldwide except Japan, Asia, United States and Canada.


Their unrestrained flamboyance eventually took its toll, as a string of unpopular/unsuccessful adaptations forced them to [[http://www.sankakucomplex.com/2009/02/13/gonzo-set-to-fire-75-of-employees/ sack 75% of their staff]]. Already in such dire financial straits, [[http://www.sankakucomplex.com/2009/11/27/gonzo-stripped-of-strike-witches-season-2/ their death as a company seemed all but assured by late 2009, having lost the rights to produce the second season]] of their last hope, the CashCowFranchise ''Manga/StrikeWitches''. This caused many of GONZO's Studio No. 5 staff members, led by Tomonori Shibata, to [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere leave the company]] and [[StartMyOwn found their own production company]] Creator/StudioGokumi. At the same time, they sold off their CGI division (Digimation) to editing company Q-Tec, who renamed it {{Creator/Graphinica}}.

* LimitedAnimation: The intros for ''Super Street Fighter IV''; the characters barely move, making it more like a motion comic than animation. The endings aren't much better.

* LimitedAnimation: The studio gained a bad reputation for animation shortcuts just as much as their CGI in the mid-late 2000s.

Added DiffLines:

* NoExportForYou: Since January 2017, GONZO no longer licenses titles distributed by themselves to any country in Latin America whatsoever due to unknown reasons and titles like Akiba's Trip, 18if, Space Battleship Tiramisu and Kakuriyo won't be available to that region.[[note]]GONZO, however, will make available some titles in Spain, as it happened with ''18if''.[[/note]] The fact that GONZO has a distribution deal with Funimation doesn't help their case.
** Subverted on titles not distributed by them, such as ''Calamity of a Zombie Girl'' as it was distributed outside Japan by Shochiku, ''Hinomaru Zumou'' which is distributed outside Japan by Pony Canyon and ''Conception'' which is distributed by GAGA Corporation.
