ARMS Corporation is a Japanese animation company whose studio has been deeply involved on all levels of the anime creation process, from artists to actors to distributors. ARMS is based in Suginami, Tokyo, Japan.

Among many other anime series, the studio created the Elfen Lied Anime Series, directed by longtime staff member, Mamoru Kanbe. The series' memorable opening and closing credits were largely animated by one of the studio's most noted creative staff, Rin Shin.

The studio is well known for their ecchi and sometimes outright pornographic works, such as Queen's Blade, Ikki Tousen, Kite, Mezzo Forte, and La Blue Girl.
