Manglobe was formed on February 7, 2002 by Sunrise producers Shinichirō Kobayashi and Takashi Kochiyama.

On September 29, 2015, the studio filed for bankruptcy and removed its website. Anime! Anime! Biz website reported that the studio had been insolvent for some time, and it had considered options such as debt consolidation before deciding to file for bankruptcy.[2] According to a report by Teikoku Databank, Manglobe had an estimated debt of 350 million yen.[3] Manglobe's bankruptcy resulted in a delay of the theatrical release of Genocidal Organ film, which was slated to open on November 13, 2015.[4]
