Xebec, Inc. (Japanese: 株式会社ジーベック, Hepburn: Kabushiki-gaisha Jībekku) is a subsidiary of Sunrise that specialises in the production of anime. They have worked on many popular series such as Martian Successor Nadesico, Love Hina, Shaman King, and To Love-Ru. Their sound effects department uses sound effects similar to those distinctly identified with Sunrise and other Japanese animation studios. On November 20, 2018, the studio's previous parent company, IG Port, sold XEBEC to Sunrise after constant deficits that the subsidiary had in different years.[2][3]

The company logotype is unique in the fact that it includes the phonetic transcription: [zíːbek].





Game animation


In 2003 the subsidiary XEBEC M2 was established, which focuses in providing animation assistance for their main studio and other companies (including OLM, as in Pokémon: Destiny Deoxys). It has also produced three full series: Petopeto-san, ZOMBIE LOAN and Hitohira. Its last activity was in 2009/2010.[4]

In 2010, it was followed by XEBECzwei, which handled in-between, key, and 2nd key animation for Xebec's main studio and other anime studios. It later produced the full series Fafner in the Azure: Exodus, which ran throughout 2015.[5]
