I need to catch up with these. So much time, so little to do -- wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it.
No cut for this one, my answer's too quick.
I suppose I'd like to slap ALL of them for promoting certain habits/tropes that really annoy both me and Kathy, but that's not the question.
If I have to choose one, It's gotta be Gainax, for Evangelion. All of the studios have done something I don't like, but Eva's the giant dysfunctional thousand-pound gorilla in that room.
