Asahi Production provides examples of:

  • False Camera Effects: Their work on shows like Attack on Titan, Wizard Barristers and Sword Art Online: Alicization have made this a trademark of the studio in recent years.
  • He Also Did: Kenji Takahashi (aka the voice of Abel and Hong Long) has worked semi-regularly at the company as Director of Photography.
  • Off-Model: While the studio is praised for the composite work, lead production efforts don't fare as well. Most notoriously Himegoto and Girl's Frontline get hit with this hard.
  • Production Posse: Xuyang notwithstanding, they've also used (and worked with) Studio Bihou, Seigasha, and Nakamura Productions on a regular basis.
    • They're also a regular animation and paint partner for A-1 Pictures and their sister company CloverWorks and Studio SHAFT.
