David Production Inc. (株式会社デイヴィッドプロダクション, Kabushiki-gaisha Deividdo Purodakushon) is a Japanese animation studio best known for the anime television series adaptation of the long-running manga series JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.

Establishment[edit]

The company was founded by former Gonzo president and producer Kōji Kajita and fellow producer Taito Okiura in September 2007 upon having left Gonzo. The company's first work was as an animation subcontractor, but in 2009 David Production undertook their first full animation production as a primary contractor with Ristorante Paradiso.[1][2][3]

Fuji Television acquired the studio on August 1, 2014.[4][5]

The company's name derives from the Biblical story of David and Goliath, a story chosen to represent "[the creation of] good animation with great storytelling and characters" despite being smaller than other well-known studios. The name is also an acronym for "Design Audio & Visual Illusion Dynamics" which signifies the studio's impactful animations.[6]
