Artland Inc. (Japanese: 株式会社アートランド, Hepburn: Kabushiki-gaisha Ātorando) is a Japanese animation studio. It has produced numerous noted anime series, including the award-winning Mushishi and epic Legend of the Galactic Heroes. It is also well known for producing the anime adaptation of Katekyō Hitman Reborn!.

In December 2010, Animation Studio Artland Inc. (Japanese: 株式会社アニメーションスタジオ・アートランド, Hepburn: Kabushiki-gaisha Animēshon Sutajio Ātorando) was established and Artland Inc.'s animation production business was transferred to the new company.

Artist and character designer Haruhiko Mikimoto is a member of Artland, as well as director Noburo Ishiguro.

In July 2017, it was reported that the company closed down after financial difficulties.[1] However this was denied by Kuniharu Okano who stated that "the company was seeking restructuring help."[2]
