SILVER LINK., Inc. (Japanese: 株式会社SILVER LINK., Hepburn: Kabushiki-gaisha Shirubā Rinku) is a Japanese animation studio. It was founded by animation producer Hayato Kaneko in December 2007 and is based in Tokyo.

Establishment[edit]

After the company's establishment in 2007, Shin Oonuma, who was previously a director alongside Shaft directors Akiyuki Shinbo and Tatsuya Oishi, joined the studio. A majority of Silver Link's productions have involved Oonuma as a director or co-director since his joining of the studio. The company also owns two subsidiaries: Beep, a subcontracting animation studio, and Connect, a studio that started off co-producing series with Silver Link, and has since expanded into producing its own works.

On July 17, 2020, it was announced that Silver Link would be wholly absorbing and dissolving Connect, and that all rights managed by the company would be transferred to Silver Link.[1] However, Connect will still continue to operate as a sub-studio within Silver Link.

On August 3, 2020, it was announced that Asahi Broadcasting Group Holdings had acquired Silver Link for 250 million yen.[2][3]

On October 1, 2020, Silver Link changed its company name to SILVER LINK. Asset Management Co., Ltd, and transferred its animation production department to the newly established SILVER LINK. Inc.[4]
