  Studio Gainax - Television Tropes & Idioms
Studio Gainax, also known just as Gainax, is one of the better-known anime studios, having created such series as Nadia and the Secret of Blue Water (Fushigi no Umi no Nadia), Neon Genesis Evangelion, FLCL, and causing the creation of such terms as Gainaxing and Gainax Ending.
Gainax is known for impressive visuals, gripping storylines, confusing plot points, and running out of money before the series is finished.
This last tendency has been a particular problem in the past; the last episodes of Gainax series tend to be lower in quality and take a lot of shortcuts.

Gainax originated from a gathering of animators that shared an interest in producing top quality animation, so it's no surprise that Gainax has produced a number of shows with amazing animation quality.
Generally Gainax is more recognized for their singular smash hit titles, and their general reliability to produce quality entertainment- not necessarily quality animation.
Gainax does place some priority on animation quality, but I'd suggest that fans be careful not to let a few of Gainax's higher profile works characterize everything the studio has produced.

The Notenki Memoirs is not the Gainax bible some (I) had hoped for, but it is a quick, cheap, enjoyable read that fills in some gaps about Gainax history.
Our entire knowledge of Gainax was based previously on a handful of translated scraps that end up on the internet or magazines, and it is valuable to have 200 pages of material straight from the horse's mouth.
It should be noted that Gainax came close to extinction in the early 90s, and would not have survived if it were not for Evangelion.

In-depth information on the studio, in terms of its makeup and foundation, is generally scarce at best in the English language.
While it is arguably unfair that a single studio be defined and revered due to a single work, Evangelion is a unique exception.
It should be noted that Gainax came close to extinction in the early 90s, and would not have survived if it were not for Evangelion.

Abenobashi also makes regular use of the infamous "Gainax bounce," in which a female character's breasts bounce with such ample splendor that they probably require their own team of animators.
Gainax and Studio Madhouse (who provided animation services) are both well-known for their graphic flair, and in general the visuals in Abenobashi are pretty tight.
The potty humour got a bit of a rest, the visuals were more consistent—and then Gainax threw a curve ball.

 DVD Verdict Review - Neon Genesis Evangelion Director's Cut: Resurrection
Studio Gainax, which began as a group of anime geeks who wanted to preserve the feel of the old classics while adding an ironic, postmodern edge (check out their jokey studio "autobiography" Otaku No Video), seems to have come full circle.
Certainly, Gainax and ADV are going to need more than just the two planned DVDs of revised episodes to keep the audience salivating.
Since Gainax only released revised versions of episodes 21-24 in Japan (technically rendering 25 and 26 moot with the release of End of Evangelion), I am curious to see what ADV plans to package on the second volume of this rerelease.

 : RevolutionSF - Petite Princess Yucie Volume 1: Princess Academy : Review
You’d think that a studio like Gainax, with a creative team like Anno and Yamaga (collectively responsible for some of the freshest, most unusual, and most compelling anime ever produced) would be able to take an overdone, cliché-loaded concept like this and transform it into something witty, sharp, intelligent, and convention-breaking.
Gainax is as popular as it is precisely because they produce anime that isn’t average.
If it were made by any other studio, it’d be a forgettable bit of fluff, good perhaps for daughters or younger sisters, but not really something that most anime fans would really be interested in watching.

Miyazaki and his crew were very happy with Anno's final product, and he went on to be hired by the scrappy animation studio Gainax as an animation director for their first feature-length film, Wings of Honneamise (1987).
He ultimately became Gainax's premiere anime director, helming the majority of the studio's projects such as Gunbuster (1988) and Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water (1990–1991).
Partially in response to this outcry, a project was launched to create a movie with a 'proper' ending for the series in 1997, eventually culminating in the controversial The End of Evangelion.

If anything, Mahoromatic is at least up front in its intentions, and so from almost the first few minutes onwards, GAINAX (bizarrely the same studio behind Evangelion) are taking an obvious pleasure in shoving a varied range of breast shapes and sizes in our faces.
However, in-between this teenage boy's wet dream, Mahoromatic #1 is laying the foundations of an interesting, even slightly tragic tale of a boy in love with an android destined to die in a year's time.
The animation from GAINAX is as pretty as ever; the rare action scenes are vividly drawn and (such is their seemingly heavy tone) make a real impression on the viewer.
