Artland Inc. (株式会社アートランド, Kabushiki-gaisha Ātorando) is a Japanese animation studio. It has produced numerous noted anime series, including the award-winning Mushishi and epic Legend of the Galactic Heroes. Its latest series is the adaption of the light novel Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaō. It is also well known for producing the anime adaptation of Katekyō Hitman Reborn!.


In December 2010, Animation Studio Artland Inc. (株式会社アニメーションスタジオ・アートランド, Kabushiki-gaisha Animēshon Sutajio Ātorando) was established and Artland Inc.'s animation production business was transferred to the new company.

Artist and character designer Haruhiko Mikimoto is a member of Artland, as well as director Noburo Ishiguro.


On March 17, 2006, Marvelous Entertainment announced that Artland would become a subsidiary of Marvelous Entertainment Inc., effective on April 3, 2006. Subsequently, Artland became a kabushiki-gaisha.

On 2010-11-15, Marvelous Entertainment Inc. announced the split of Artland Inc.'s animation department into Animation Studio Artland Inc., effective on 2010-12-01. All shares of the new company then were transferred to Kuniharu Okano.
