According to the Tokyo District Court in Japan, anime studio GAINAX, the company behind Neon Genesis Evangelion, has announced that it will shut down its operations effective June 7 due to its bankruptcy status being confirmed.

GAINAX, despite being the studio responsible for Neon Genesis Evangelion and its commercial success, has been embroiled in various controversies over its 40-year existence, chief among them the rise of Hideaki Anno’s work, when its studio director collaborated with company accountant, lied about the profits received by the production company in 1995.

After being accused of fraud and paying a fine of just over $10 million, GAINAX lost enough economic power to win another financial lawsuit, this time against Hideaki Anno and his production company Studio Khara in 2016. This conflict did not exist. one of a kind since the production company Neon Genesis Evangelion suffered for many years from the fallout of the 1995 scam.

However, infamy continued to dog GAINAX in 2019 when its director Tomohiro Maki was found guilty of committing acts of violence against a voice actress, culminating in a two-and-a-half year prison sentence for the executive.

GAINAX already had problems before Neon Genesis Evangelion

As if it were the saltiest company in the world, GAINAX first suffered scandal in 1992 when the second season of its current hit Royal Space Force: The Wings of Honneamise was canceled due to production problems.

While GAINAX’s future lies in the depths of oblivion, all will not be lost for its creative legacy as Studio Khara has confirmed via its website that it is working to acquire the defunct studio’s intellectual property. In addition, the anime production company will go down in history by bringing to life projects such as Neon Genesis Evangelion, Gurren Lagann or Fooly Cooly.
