New hit GANGSTA the latest project released by Manglobe

Manglobe, the anime studios behind hit series such as Samurai Champloo, The World God Only Knows, and GANGSTA, has closed its doors. According to reports, the company began the process for bankruptcy on the 29th after being a state of collapse for quite a while. The announcement came suddenly last night, leaving many animators and other contractors with no knowledge that their livelihood has gone the way of the dodo. An example, Hideo Komori, the director of the Hayate no Gotoku! movie tweeted, “My salary hasn’t been wired?” Indicating the surprise foreclosure that has caught everyone off guard. Manglobe has built a reputation for delivering quality anime. The studio was working on the anime movie based of the late novelist Keikaku Itoh titled “Genocidal Organ.” The movie was intended for a November 13th release but this will likely be delayed. Can’t blame bad luck for this one. Founded in 2002, Manglobe took off with a bang with its first series, Samurai Champloo.

Samurai Champloo was the company's break out hit in 2003.
