Not that I'm a big fan of Geno Studio, but despite a wobbly start with that laughable CG bear, they kept improving and ended up doing a great job on season 3, so I'm sorry to see them and most of the main staff replaced. Still, I'm very glad this is getting a fourth season, and I hope it's not the last one, since there's a lot of material left to adapt.

Great that there's going to be another series. I'm curious as to the reason behind the staff and studio change. It's probably because they're busy working on another project.

The CGi bear in S1 was due to geno being a new studio in that time and had to outsource the CGi to kingdom s1's CGi studio but with S3 they animated the creatures since the schedule was a little better with having a strong outsourced episode to studio wit.

I'm very happy to see they're adapting more of the manga material.
I'm a bit concerned of the drastic changes behind the scenes.

Does anyone have information on as to why the studio and/or the key players got switched?

Interesting, I wonder what's up with Geno Studio. I hope they just have another project and didn't have the time. It'd be a shame if they were having issues, wasn't really a fan of their work, but I wouldn't want to see them close or downgrade

Really love this anime. Can't wait for more fucked up scenes like the one last season where Shiraishi peed on the faces of Sugimoto and the Ainu girl. What a classic. Noice.

Ooh, nice! Was just thinking about the series yesterday and wondering if/when a s4 was coming. Brains Base is a great studio, I loved their work on Baccano and To Your Eternity.

Hmm...when there's a studio change sometimes you still see the same staff working on the production, so I wonder what happened here.

Still, happy for fans that the anime is continuing and hopefully the change won't effect the quality of the adaption.

Animation and insane pacing were the main issues before. Can´t see the anime slowing down (about 10 volumes to go from the end of S3 to the manga´s fast-approaching ending) but maybe the animation can improve? At least we will likely get the full manga done in the end. We certainly saw much worse Seinen adaptations recently.

I wonder if Geno Studio is working on a project in this case, they haven't done any full length series since Pet in 2020

Nice. I would like to see the whole manga eventually animated.

They have another anime to work and the director of the series stated that the schedule didn't fit geno's one.
