Background: Artmic (that's short for ART-Modern Ideologist for Creation) is a now defunct Japanese design studio that was formed in 1978. It went bankrupt and was liquidated in 1997 after being slapped with a lawsuit by Youmex over Bubblegum Crash, that cut it short, tying up the entire franchise up in legal issues for the next several years. As a result, Anime International Company (AIC) now has intellectual property of most of its titles.
Availability: Spotted on releases from the company, including later releases of the Gall Force OVA Series, which were all released by U.S. Manga Corps; one from (NuTech Digital, Inc.) and DVD, Ltd. altogether.
Scare Factor: Low.
