Ordet Co., Ltd. (株式会社Ordet (オース) Kabushiki-gaisha Ōsu?) is a Japanese animation studio, founded in 2007 by ex-Animation Do director Yutaka Yamamoto and other staff. The origin of company name is WORD in Danish. The company initially served as a subcontractor before producing their first fully solo work, an OVA episode of Black Rock Shooter, which aired in the spring of 2010.[2] This was followed up with an 8-episode series that aired on noitamina from February 2, 2012 to March 22, 2012.
