Samurai Champloo will undoubtedly be dubbed by many anime fans as one of the greatest anime of all time, with its blend of alternate Edo-era Japan and hip-hop music. Gangsta., an anime which made its debut this year is also sure to become a favourite in the hearts of anime fans. However, Manglobe (マングローブ), the company that brought us these hit shows, has become bankrupt.
The shows produced by Manglobe have always had a knack for being very unique, and quirky, whilst putting the icing on the cake with clean, high quality animation, starting off with Samurai Champloo back in 2002.
A project that was on the studio’s plate was the film Genocidal Organ, previously scheduled for a 13 November release, however that has now been delayed.
With the success of Gangsta., could a second season be on the horizon with another anime studio?
