GEMBA Inc. (Japanese: 株式会社ゲンバ, Hepburn: Kabushiki-gaisha Genba) is a Japanese animation studio subsidiary of Digital Frontier that specializes in the production of 3DCG animation and anime.


The company was established in 2006 as a sub-contracting studio that specialized in 3DCG production, and was involved with various works such as Psycho-Pass and Noblesse. In 2016, Gemba released its first major production, an iteration of Kentaro Miura's Berserk co-animated with 2D studio Millepensee. Despite a decade of experience with 3DCG, the series received harsh criticism towards its CG animation from viewers and critics alike.[1][2][3][4][5] Despite criticisms of Berserk's 3D animation, reception to the studio's second major production, The Magnificent Kotobuki, has been more positive.[6]
