Manglobe, the studio that brought us Samurai Champloo, is bankrupt


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?
