Xebec, Inc. (Japanese: 株式会社ジーベック, Hepburn: Kabushiki-gaisha Jībekku) is a subsidiary of IG Port (the holding company of studio Production I.G) that specialises in the production of anime. They have worked on many popular series such as Martian Successor Nadesico, Love Hina, Shaman King, and To Love-Ru. Their sound effects department uses sound effects similar to those distinctly identified with Sunrise and other Japanese animation studios.

The company logotype is unique in the fact that it includes the phonetic transcription: [zíːbek].





Game animation[edit]


In 2003 the subsidiary XEBEC M2 was established, which focuses in providing animation assistance for their main studio and other companies (including OLM, as in Pokémon: Destiny Deoxys). It has also produced three full series: Petopeto-san, ZOMBIE LOAN and Hitohira. Its last activity was in 2009/2010.[3]

In 2012 it was followed by XEBECzwei, which handles in-between, key, and 2nd key animation for their main studio and other anime studios. It later produced the full series Fafner in the Azure: Exodus, which ran throughout 2015.[4]
