Ufotable Studios is a Japanese animation studio renowned for its excellent animation and visual works. The combination of effects, light reflection and cinematography has never failed to amaze viewers and select this studio as their favourite.

About the Ufotable studies

Founded in October 2000 in Nakano, Tokyo, by former members of the TMS Entertainment studios and its subsidiary, Telecom Animation Film; his long way has been full of good impressions for his fans. Ufotable started with series like Dokkoida?!, Futakoi Alternative, and Ninja Nonsense.

Later, Ufotable became more popular with projects like the animated film adaptation of the Kara no Kyoukai light novels. Since then, they have done nothing but continue to impress viewers and improve their animation quality. So much so that, currently, any anime that is produced by this studio has a highly assured animation quality. Now, it's time to review the ten best series produced by this studio, remembering that this list has no order and that the user can propose it according to their preference.


Released in October 2011 and featuring 25 episodes, the story of Fate/Zero follows the events of the Fourth Holy Grail War, ten years before the events of Fate/Stay Night. The story focuses on Kiritsugu, who fights against six other contestants, each of them armed with Servants. Fate/Zero is a highly recommended series by fans since, unlike the adaptation of Fate/Stay Night made by Studio Deen and released in 2006, the adaptation by Ufotable studios had many points in its favour. The visuals, soundtrack, and voice cast took the cake during their time.

Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works

Released in October 2014 and with 25 episodes, the story of Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works refocuses on the Holy Grail War, with seven users and seven servants fighting in the fifth war. The Holy Grail is a magical artifact that is capable of fulfilling any wish of its bearer. "Unlimited Blade Works" adapted the second route of the visual novels, and this series is more based on Shirou, Rin, and Archer.

There are two anime adaptations of this route, the first was made in animated film format, again by Studio Deen. In this case we are referring to the animated series produced by the Ufotable studios, which covered the same events as the film. Character development looks better by far, especially compared to the 2006 version.

Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer)

Released in April 2019 and with 26 episodes, the story focuses on the Kamado family, who live peacefully in the mountains. One day, Tanjirou needs to make money for his family by selling charcoal, so he goes down to the village at the foot of the mountain to sell it. However, when he returns he discovers that his entire family has been killed by a demon, leaving only his sister Nezuko alive, but transformed into one.

Thus begins the new life of Tanjirou, who will dedicate himself to hunting demons and looking for a way to return his sister to normal. Kimetsu no Yaiba became one of the most critically acclaimed series since its first episode, but everything definitely exploded with the nineteenth episode. Ufotable seems to have given it their all in the production of this series, especially in the animation.

Fate/Stay Night: Heaven's Feel

The film trilogy that began in October 2017, this story focuses on the third and final route of the original visual novels. The mysterious shadow that begins to murder people in Fuyuki City will make Shirou and Rin join forces with the aim of stopping the deaths of innocent people.

This route focuses more on the relationship between Shirou and Sakura, and is considered by some to be the best route in Fate/Stay Night as well as the darkest. Currently, only two of the films have been released, with the third scheduled for August.

Kara no Kyoukai

The series of eight movies that started with the first one released in December 2007. The story centers on Shiki Ryogi, a teenage girl who was raised to be a demon hunter. After an accident, he gains an ability that allows him to see the end of things. In September 1998, a wave of suicides begins to happen in Japan, and all the victims are high school girls who have jumped from the top of the Fujou Building. To investigate this, Toko Aozaki sends Shiki and Mikiya.

Kara no Kyoukai is based on the project carried out by Nasu Kinoko and Takeuchi Takashi, who would later found the group TYPE-MOON. The series is not to everyone's taste, as it has a dark and disturbing fantasy feel to it. However, the visual quality is, as usual with Ufotable studios, extraordinary.

Tales of Symphonia: The Animation

Released in June 2007 and with eleven episodes. The story focuses on the concept of mana, the spiritual energy that sustains life. The world without mana would reach its extinction very quickly. Collote Brunel, a young girl, is Sylvarant's chosen one. Accompanied by her friend, Lloyd Irving and Genis Sage and others, they will set out on a journey to save the world.

The series adapted a video game franchise of the same name, and had a total of eleven episodes plus a series of three OVAs. The story is pretty good, especially for emotional audiences. Again, the animation quality is more than satisfactory.

Gakuen Utopia Manabi Straight!

Released in January 2007 and with twelve episodes. The story takes place in the future, in Japan, where the birth rate has dropped considerably. This means that schools have fewer students and many children start working at an early age and avoid going to school. As a result, many schools have been closed. Amamiya Manami, the protagonist, is transferred to Seioh Academy. She is a very energetic and cheerful girl, and she is determined to enjoy her school life.

A series with a different environment than the one used by this studio with cute characters. The story is simple but solid, and it is almost a classic that, although not everyone likes it, deserves to be seen at least once.

Emiya-san Chi no Kyou no Gohan

Released in January 2018 and with thirteen episodes. The story takes place in an alternate universe where the Holy Grail War no longer haunts the city of Fuyuki. It is now the place where Shirou Emiya lives peacefully with his family and friends, and the plot focuses on Shirou cooking various Japanese cuisine for them.

Shirou's daily life in his search for unique ingredients and his great flavor that commonly attracts other guests make this series a highly recommended slice of life.

Tales of Zestiria the X

Released in July 2016 and with 26 episodes divided into two seasons. Tales of Zestiria the X is a series based on the video games of the same name. The story takes place in a world where humanity and seraphim have lived in harmony for many years. Seraphim are a race of divine creatures that bestow boons on humanity if prayed to, and also have the ability to control the elements of the world.

However, its existence was forgotten hundreds of years ago, and the records only tell about this era in written form. This is where Sorey, the young protagonist who has lived in secret with a seraphim, will begin her journey to create a world where humanity and seraphim can once again coexist.

Futakoi Alternative

Released in April 2005 and with thirteen episodes, Futakoi Alternative was, in fact, produced by three studios: Feel, Studio Flag and Ufotable. The story tells the story of Rentarou Futaba's detective agency. He now runs the family business after his father's death three weeks ago. Together with Sara and Soju, two twins who are moving in with him and who will now work as his secretaries.

The point of this series, as the reader can imagine, is the romantic relationship between the protagonist and the girls, although each episode seemed to deliver a different genre each time.

Growing up I use to watch cartoons a lot. But this day, I hear anime. So, my question is, are both cartoons and anime the same? Because it gets me confused most times as I always call anime cartoons.

The main difference is that anime, even if it is animated, is focused on a more adult audience where you can find stories that can often surpass real-life movies in terms of realism and often very human characters.
