Go To

Studio Junio (スタジオジュニオ) was an anime studio founded in 1970 by Takao Kozai after Hatena Pro (of which Takao was co-founder) disbanded and split a year prior. Since their establishment, they have worked with TMS and Toei on several anime. In 1999, after the troubled production of Gundress, the company withdrew from the animation business and a year later, reorganized itself as a joint-stock company under the name Junio Brain Trust.

See FAI International and SynergySP, studios founded by former Junio staff.

Tropes associated with Junio

  • Animation Bump: Sonic CD, Batman
  • Animesque: One of Junio's Batman episodes had this (see Off Model below).
  • How the Mighty Have Fallen: What was once one of the more well-respected anime studios out there. Junio would suffer greatly during the production of Gundress that it effectively killed any remaining goodwill they had left, and forced them to change industries entirely. With most of its animation staff forming FAI International and Synergy SP.
  • Off-Model: Junio did animation for one Batman episode ("The Underdwellers") that looked nothing like their other episodes, or indeed, like the other studios. This almost caused the WB staff to fire them, much as they did with Sunrise and AKOM.
