Production I.G and Adult Swim Announce an Anime Collaboration!

Production I.G is one of the leading anime production companies in Japan behind popular titles like Attack on Titans, Psycho-Pass, and Haikyuu!!.

It has been in the anime industry from December 15, 1987, with a simple goal, according to president Mitsuhisa Ishikawa, “to make anime that stands on its own ground without being an extension of the manga.”

Adult Swim, famous for Rick and Morty is an American adult-oriented nighttime programming block for Cartoon Network.

It has played an active role in bringing anime to America through Toonami that primarily broadcasts Japanese animes every Sunday morning from 12 a.m. to 3 a.m. ET/PT.
