MADHOUSE Limited (株式会社 マッドハウス, Kabushiki-gaisha Maddohausu?) is a Japanese animation studio, founded in the early 1970s by ex-Mushi Pro animators including Masao Maruyama, Osamu Dezaki, Rintaro, and Yoshiaki Kawajiri. It has created and helped to produce many well known shows, starting with TV anime series Ace o Nerae! in 1973, and including western favorites Ninja Scroll, Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust, Trigun and Di Gi Charat. Madhouse produced animation in OVA format in the late 1980s and early 1990s, but unlike studios founded at this time such as AIC and J.C.Staff, their strength was in TV shows and theatrical features. They were also responsible for the first Beyblade anime series as well as the Dragon Drive anime. Among their later works is Texhnolyze. Another close tie to the studio is mangaka Naoki Urasawa. Madhouse has made adaptations of three of his manga: Yawara!, Master Keaton and Monster. They have also animated some of Clamp's catalogue: Tokyo Babylon, two versions of X, Cardcaptor Sakura and Chobits.

Madhouse has produced over 300 shows and we only have 4 club pictures. Can we at least add the recent ones?

Anyone watched Btooom? Well now you can play a game based off the game they played right here!

Take it as a rhetorical question since the "?" wasn't added. I'd like to believe that he was trying to say that there isn't anyone who hates it. If he asked, "Who likes Madhouse?", he'd get replies from practically everyone who read the question. It could lead to finding haters in the club if anyone answered that question, so I could image the admin potentially kicking said person out the club. I can't see that happening though. (Joined just to say this, but I've seen enough productions from Madhouse to say I have enough reason to join.)

Why would you ask that at a Madhouse Fan Club?

Who hates Madhouse

There's a new anime that Madhouse picked up, it's called Prince of Stride: Alternative. Link here:

I personally can't wait to see it because I am a fan of sports anime, and bishounens in general. ^.^ A bonus would be that there's a lot of well known voice actors casted.
