Sanzigen was founded in 2003, and incorporated in 2006 by former Gonzo employees as a studio specializing in CGI animation. The company has worked on CG production for various anime, such as Wooser's Hand-to-Mouth Life, 009 Re:Cyborg, the new Initial D films, and The Heroic Legend of Arslan. The company has produced anime such as the Arpeggio of Blue Steel television anime and its subsequent films, and the Miss Monochrome series.
