TOKYO (Jiji Press) – Gainax Co., known for producing the hit anime series “Neon Genesis Evangelion,” said Friday it filed for bankruptcy in the Tokyo District Court on May 29.

Founded in 1984, the Tokyo-based company has produced popular anime titles including film director Hideaki Anno’s Evangelion series and “Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water.”

Business conditions began to deteriorate around 2012 due to careless management by executives, and the company lost its anime production capabilities after an exodus of its creative staff.
