Based on the manga in Shonen Sunday magazine by Takuya Mitsuda.

Maki Productions

Often credited as Maki Pro. A titling house that performs a relatively simple process, adding credits to animation or blank screens to make the opening or closing titles. Since all anime have credits, Maki Pro's name appears in a huge number of titles, although its role is limited. We presume that Maki Pro's role may have extended to other forms of effects, known in Japanese as "Ris Work," such as the addition of mist or fog effects to preexisting film. These jobs, however, are few and far between since the advent of digital animation, allowing most studios to add such effects in-house.
