Production IMS Co., Ltd. (Japanese: 株式会社プロダクションアイムズ, Hepburn: Kabushiki-gaisha Purodakushon Aimuzu), or Production IMS, was a Japanese animation studio established on February 14, 2013, by former staff members from AIC Spirits. Its headquarters were located in Nerima, Tokyo, Japan.[1]

Financial problems[edit]

On December 20, 2017, animator Teru Miyazaki posted then deleted a tweet on Twitter stating that an anime studio, implied to be Production IMS, was not paying its animators.[2] On June 7 the following year, credit research company Tokyo Shoko Research reported that Production IMS began consolidating its debts and that the staff was considering filing for bankruptcy.[3] The company did later file for bankruptcy on September 21, 2018, and closed on October 11 of the same year.[4]
