What is “Haoliners”?
"Making more and more exciting animation!" is our catchphrase!
The animation's produced at the Shanghai studios all carry the name “Haoliners.”
Currently, nearly 80% of most popular animation produced in China carry the brand name Haoliners.
The origin of the name Haoliners comes from the founder and director of the Shanghai Haoliners Cultures Media Co., Ltd and director of Haoliners, Li Haoling.
“Hao” meaning “excellence” in Chinese, and “line” representing the image of a something that goes in a straight course. The combination of both can also mean “Hao and his friends” but we prefer the metaphor of a studios aiming for excellence in order to create works that go straight to the heart of people. That is the meaning of Haoliners.
Production made by the Japanese studio EMON will also carry the Haoliners mark.
