Studio VOLN is a Japanese animation studio that animates and produces anime television series and films. The company’s name, “VOLN”, is an acronym for “Visiting Old Learn New”. The studio was founded on August 12, 2014, by ex-Madhouse producer and director Mita Keiji, who currently heads the company as its president and representative. The studio’s first two animated series were co-productions with MAPPA, including an adaptation of the popular manga series Ushio and Tora. Since then, it started to produce its own works, including a theatrical anime film version of the 2015 novel I Want to Eat Your Pancreas. After its founding, Abiru Takahito became one of the studio’s animation directors.
