Japanese animation studio.
Studio founded by Osamu Tezuka in direct competition with Toei Animation, its most notable successes being the 1963-65 boom in television animation started by Astro Boy. The company stumbled in the climate of the late 1960s and collapsed in the early 1970s, declaring bankruptcy in 1973. The dispersal of its staff led to the foundation of many of the independent studios of today, such as Madhouse.
In 1975, the company's works were the subject of a "masterpiece" retrospective in Yoyogi. Tezuka's work is represented today by Tezuka Productions, a different company.
