Studio White Fox is known for their quality mainstream anime.
Usually the kind of anime that’s:
Or something along those lines and relevant.
They’re not as big as names like Madhouse or Kyoani, but they’ve staked their claim with some massive titles.
Here are the BEST anime studio White Fox has made:
1. Akame Ga Kill
Akame Ga Kill is one of the biggest anime shows of the last decade since 2010. In popularity (statistics) it’s up there with some of the biggest Shounen.
The anime is set up in a communist imperial capital, where the mayor exploits a child emperor for his own sadistic motives.
A group called Night Raid is one of the opposing groups who stand up for what’s right, and are trying to bring about a revolution by destroying the system.
So many anime of this kind tend to follow a cliché, where the main character and support characters don’t really die. Or come close to it.
Akame Ga Kill is different in that way.
Without spoiling it – it’s an unconventional series in its approach, and how it’s perceived is a reflection of that.
The action and swift scenes are some of the smoothest and intense you’ll ever come across.
Re:Zero is one of the biggest anime of the 2010’s and one of the more successful shows of the decade.
Whether the anime is controversial or not for how “good” it is – the results and ratings don’t lie. And for good reason.
The anime knows how to play on suspense to make scenes more intense, and Subaru Natsuki is a protagonist who’s so flawed it’s realistic.
Few protagonists are as real and relatable as Subaru Natsuki, especially as far as modern anime in the 21st century. And that’s the least of why Re:Zero should be on your watch list.
3. Steins Gate
As some of you will know – I’m not a fan of Steins Gate. But we are talking about White Fox’s best and biggest anime shows, so I’ll throw it in here.
One thing I’ll credit Steins Gate for is the deep nature of the series, and the direction it takes the plot and story.
It can take some effort to “warm up” to this anime, but objectively speaking – the anime’s ratings and reputation speaks louder than my opinions on it. So you should at least try it.
4. Goblin Slayer
Goblin Slayer is one of Studio White Fox’s newest anime. Released late 2018.
The anime’s so vile and savage, it caused a public outrage on Twitter. And even Crunchyroll ignored it in their “anime awards” for 2019 because of its reputation.
That being said – the violence in this anime is overrated as it only happens in the first episode. Every episode after that is pretty tame.
If you enjoy anime like Log Horizon or a similar adventure series, Goblin Slayer is similar but more bloodthirsty and especially darker than most adventure anime.
After all is said and done – the anime isn’t too bad and I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. And you might get the same experience out of it.
5. The Devil Is A Part Timer
The Devil Is A Part Timer is a great series with an unusual twist on the Isekai trope.
The main characters start out in Ente-Isla where angels and devils are at war with each other.
Both the main characters end up being transported to the human world where they’re forced to live normal lives after losing most of their supernatural powers.
This creative element in The Devil Is A Part Timer is what makes the anime so hilarious, daft, and unique all at once. It’s nothing like any Isekai ever made to this day.
The chemistry between the characters and how the events come together is worth its weight in gold.
It’s one of Studio White Fox’s most underrated anime shows.
6. Is The Order A Rabbit?
Is The Order A Rabbit? is an anime you wouldn’t expect White Fox to produce, considering its more popular and mainstream shows.
But it does a decent job.
It’s a “cute girls doing cute things” type of anime, focused on the café each girl works in. And the business that revolves around running a café.
Even the names of the characters is associated with Coffee or similar drinks:
And so on. It’s a clever-ish play on the anime’s themes, and the cute and silly episodes that come with it.
Koko Hekmatyar is a strong business woman who grew up in the arms dealing business, so that’s all she knows. Regardless of the immorality and dark nature of the industry.
Jormungand is the anime most known for this type of story in the arms dealing business, and the main character who runs her own business making millions off it.
If you want a different version to Black Lagoon, Jormungand is always the BEST choice. Especially if you want something more realistic and true to life than Black Lagoon (without the exaggerated battle scenes).
In Jormungand’s case – the main character is more intelligent and calculated than Revy Rebecca, but that comes down to the difference in plot.
8. The Grimoire Of Zero
The Grimoire Of Zero is an underground anime most people don’t know of from Studio White Fox.
It’s about magic and the main character the anime’s named after.
Similar to an anime like Akame Ga Kill, prejudice is a common thing in The Grimoire Of Zero. You’re hated for being a certain type of species, and mistreated for things you can’t change about yourself.
These types of creatures are called “beast fallen”. Boys who are born as beasts instead of pure-humans.
The Grimoire Of Zero is the type of anime you’ll enjoy if you’re NOT looking for a masterpiece.
It has its good parts, and even though it’s worthwhile – there are parts of this anime that don’t shine as well as other White Fox anime.
- The Hero Is Overpowered but Overly Cautious.
- Girls’ Last Tour.
- Utawarerumono: The False Faces.
- Tears to Tiara.
I’m the Founder of Anime Motivation.
The 1st anime I watched was Dragon Ball Z. Followed by Claymore, Inuyasha, Attack On Titan, and the rest as they say is “history”.
