El TV Kadsre Animation, formerly known as Islands Animation (諸島アニメーション Shotō Animēshon ) and often abbreviated as ETKA, is an El Kadsreian animation studio based in El Kadsre City, El Kadsre. It is currently owned and operated by the El TV Kadsre Television Network, who mainly air their productions on all their channels. The company mainly participates in the production of anime series, animated series, as well as films and video games.
El TV Kadsre Animation is mainly famous for producing numerous anime adaptations and animated series mainly on works of El Kadsreian literature and manga, such as Jamie's got Tentacles!, Planet Ripple and Akari Kagamine and the Rainbow Mirror. Original programming is also part of their spectrum as well. El TV Kadsre Animation has also produced anime adaptations of a few video game series, such as Touhou Project: The Animated Series and the upcoming Onmyoji: The Animated Series. One of Seymour Games' founders, Hitoshi Tomoyuki, directed several of these series. WatchMojo.com ranked the studio as #2 on the Top Ten Animation Studios of El Kadsre.
The company also has international offices in Minecraftia.
The company was founded on May 4, 1937, as Islands Animation. The studio was founded after two of its followers watched various animated shorts by the works of Disney and Fleischer Studios. In the late 1950s, El TV Kadsre purchased the studio and in 1964, it was renamed it as El TV Kadsre Animation.
One of their most well-known series throughout the 1990s was the anime adaptation Akari Kagamine and the Rainbow Mirror, based on Hinata Kazunori's novel of the same name. The anime adaptation is more popular than the novel and was a hit in Japan, leading to more than 200,000 Japanese fans to visit El Kadsre City every year since the late 1990s. In the mid-1990s, ETKA began animating cutscenes for video games, with their first being the 1996 arcade game Akari Kagamine and the Luminous Bricks.
As of 2016, they have headed production of over 200 animated series and more than 400 films.
