The Duke of Death and His Maid Season 3 studio

Usually, CGI is frowned upon in the anime community. But the animators of The Duke of Death and His Maid, J.C.Staff, have managed to make CGI look good. They’ve managed to create a polished-looking animation while also preserving important aspects of Japanese animation.

The world looks pretty, the fight scenes don’t look clumsy and the unique characters are full of personality and emotions. The animation done by J.C.Staff is simplistic but it goes along well with the show’s mood.

J.C. Staff has also worked on some top-rated shows like Toradora!, One Punch Man, and Food Wars! The Season 3 announcement did not include any information about a studio change so it is very likely that they’ll continue animating the upcoming season.
