Wish they'd make an anime for The Yagyu Ninja Scrolls.

Basilisk: The Kouga Ninja Scrolls is probably one of the few anime they actually adapted very well (didn't screw up), and in my opinion the anime surpassed the manga.

Good to see them earning money again and as they finally made their first full TV series since the full re-organization in LE: Fam and that short that they're doing as part of that young animator training thing along with those other studios.

Looking forward to that possible project announcement in July.

Not a major Gonzo fan, but it's always re-assuring to learn that an anime studio is doing well for itself during these difficult times. Even if the reason is not directly related to industry activity.

I really like some of gonzo's work and some of their adaptions of classics like Count of Monte Cristo. Glad they're not going bankrupt and making some earnings.

I wonder if Gonzo can go back to the shape they were before things went down hill. It would be great if they could pull themselves out of the slum, they used to be one of the best studios.

Being an admirer of the production company that brought affordable 3DVFX to TV anime (it being once only reserved for movies), I'm happy to know that GONZO is back in the black.

It really broke my heart when I got a whiff of the news that GONZO was close to bankruptcy way back, but, well, it's nice for them to be back and roaring again.

It may have cost them the rights to animate some franchises, but what the hell--I hope for more in the future.

Hear! Hear!

Let's have a reboot with Rosario+Vampire as an action series with some leg fanservice (instead of the facepalm worthy panty fest they did before, specially on the boring second season).

I like Gonzo. They may not always have the best animation talent but they have ambition to spare, and are always willing to experiment visually or narratively. I respect them a lot more than many more polished studios because of that.
