Elfen Lied Wiki

ARMS Corporation was a Japanese animation company whose studio had been deeply involved on all levels of the anime creation process, from artists to actors to distributors. ARMS was 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. On August 4, 2020, the company filed for bankruptcy and ceased operations after nearly 25 years.

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