Rebuild of Evangelion project’s Studio Khara celebrates 10th anniversary

May 17th marked the 10th anniversary of Evangelion creator Hideaki Anno’s Studio Khara, named after the Greek χαρα, meaning “joy”. They’ve certainly brought that to pluggers everywhere, us included, with their Rebuild of Evangelion anime movie project first launched on September 1st, 2007.  But they mustn’t be forgotten for their Studio Ghibli contributions in films including PonyoFrom Up on Poppy Hill and The Wind Rises, or their teamwork on Mamoru Hosoda’s Wolf Children,  or Rebellion of SHAFT’s Madoka Magica movie project. On a smaller scale, there’s also their Dwango collaboration on the series of charming mini-animations, the Japan Animator Expo.

The studio’s Twitter relayed the staff’s gratitude to fans for their support, promising to grow even more over the next decade. With this message, they revealed an anniversary logo designed by Evangelion‘s master of mecha Ikuto Yamashita, and announced their plans for an exhibit to come to Tokyo this fall in celebration of the occasion.
