...misread that as TMS and was surprised for a moment. I actually remember the story about that tweet, so not too shocking, I suppose.

they'll simply move to different studios. I'm pretty sure the High School Fleet movie is already with A-1 Pictures

Animator criticizes lack of payment, and the studio at the end will change address. This is pure talk to me. The studio is in penury.

Well that's a shame. I just hope that doesn't mean Date A Live 3 will be cancelled

I do not celebrate the lose of an Anime studio, unless it is a CG one but that's an enterally different debate, but their demise certainly isn't a loss, they've been around for only a few years and haven't made anything note worthy.

I had a feeling this may happen ever since noticing their declining animation quality ever since Inakon. Man, this is sad news. I had a soft spot for this studio.

Man and I was hoping on a new testament series too. They had some fun series' and I hope that whoever takes up date a live will give the artwork the same care they did.

Big fan of High School Fleet, at least the movie was already with a different studio.

I hope all the employees can quickly find work if this is indeed the end of Production IMS.

Nothing of value will be lost. High School Fleet is already being taken of by A-1. Their only decent production along with Inari Kon Kon.

Well, that's a shame...

Hopefully DAL 3 will still be a thing and will gain a new undercome , who can make it just as good.

As for Testament: hopefully this won't mean that there won't be any sequels
