Established 1996, the animation studio has been involved in the production, animation, and Japanese distribution of a substantial number of release. It was initially named Dandelion and later changed to Triple X.
The studio was known for having above-average amount of fanservice, such as for their anime series including Ikki Tousen and Queen's Blade series. It was, at first, a producer of hentai (most notably its productions with Green Bunny), but has since ceased productions of erotica with the growing popularity of their televised works.
Elfen Lied, one of their most successful works based on the Lynn Okamoto manga, run from July 25, 2004 to October 17, 2004 but other episodes namely: Episodes 2, 5, and 10 were subcontracted to Studio Guts.
