Studio VOLN Co., Ltd. (Japanese: 株式会社studio VOLN, Hepburn: Kabushiki-gaisha Sutaijo VORN) is a Japanese animation studio that animates and produces anime television series and films

The company's name, "VOLN", is an acronym for "Visiting Old Learn New".[1]

Establishment[edit]

The studio was founded on August 12, 2014, by ex-Madhouse producer and director Mita Keiji, who currently heads the company as its president and representative. The studio's first two animated series were co-productions with MAPPA, including an adaptation of the popular manga series Ushio and Tora. Since then, it has started to produce its own works including a theatrical anime film version of the 2015 novel I Want to Eat Your Pancreas. After its founding, Abiru Takahito became one of the studio's animation directors.[2]
