Tropes Associated with Magic Bus

  • Bloodier and Gorier: Much of their most notable work like Mad Bull and Sword of Truth are hyper-violent to the point of it being their trademark.
  • How the Mighty Have Fallen: While still getting credits as a subcontractor, their lead production efforts outside of the Pokemon: Chase the Beans short consist largely of short-form Hentai titles.
  • Lazy Artist: A lot of their work, both as an OVA producer and episode subcontractor, is very low quality even by the standards of both formats. A large part of this is due to the studio's reliance on substandard Korean studios to aid them.
