AIC (short for Anime International Company) is a large Anime Studio (by large, it's mainly due to having seven subsidiaries - "AIC A.S.T.A.", "AIC Build", "AIC Classic", "AIC Digital", "AIC PLUS+", "AIC Spirits" and "AIC Takarazuka")

Established in 1982, the company has gone on to provide animation for several high profile series and has helped out on many others. Since 2006, they've been developing software (alongside Singapore's Nanyang Technological University) that will generate In-Betweens from key frames.

Side Note: All titles by the subsidiaries are listed here, likewise any Artmic projects (as AIC owns those).

Compare Toei Animation, TMS Entertainment, Studio Gainax, Madhouse, Studio DEEN, Sunrise, Studio Pierrot and Studio Gallop. Other major Anime studios from the Early 80's or prior, and all of which are still around. See also Wang Film Productions and Industrial Light and Magic, two other long lasting animation studios (one Taiwanese, one American) established before the 80's and still running.

AIC provides examples of the following tropes:
  • Cash Cow Franchise: Ah My Goddess, Tenchi Muyo; Captain Power also to a slight extent.
  • Stock Sound Effects: The Captain Power videos recycles some of the same effects from Bubblegum Crisis
