Closing Logo Group

1st Logo (February 25, 1990-1991)[]


Logo: On a pixelated space background, blue pixelated text zooms out, styled like this, "US RENDITIONS", zooming out. A shadow moves over the "US" and 2 lines from the left and another pair on the right slightly above, top bright blue and bottom dark blue, moving and merging into one. Another shadow moves over the entire logo. The logo then disappears, leaving only the space background.

FX/SFX: Everything described above, which seems to come from an Amiga computer, and all running at 15 FPS.

Music/Sounds: A 7-note synthesized jingle, exactly what you expect from an Amiga computer's speakers. A faint shimmering noise can also be heard when the shadow moves through the logo.

Availability: Extremely rare. Can be found on the first volumes of Gunbuster and Dangaioh.

2nd Logo (1991-1992)[]


Logo: On a space background, we see four blue balls with electrical links pairing two of each fly close to each other in the center of the screen before flying out. One pair of electric balls flies in and use their electric link to form the blue text "RENDITIONS" while one of the other balls flies above the aforementioned text and quickly disappears in a light yellow circle that shrinks to nothing and leaves the stylized "US" from the previous logo in the process. Two pairs of lines then emerge and converge in a similar manner as the previous logo from the left and bottom-rights of the screens before we fade to black.

FX/SFX: All CG animation.

Music/Sounds: A somewhat ominous theme prominently featuring a choir alongside other sounds effects like an arcade game-esque zap then the yellow circle disappears and a quiet ascending sound effect when the lines converge.

Availability: Extremely rare. Seen on the last two volumes of Gunbuster, Appleseed, and Black Magic M-66.

3rd Logo (1992-1995?)[]


Logo: On a space background (different from the last logo), we see a silver ball surrounded by several tiny electric balls. The ball zooms out, then the electric balls disappears, then the silver ball zooms in a bit. It stops, and morphs into the "US" from the previous logo. The lines from the last logo zooms into its position and another silver ball appears zooming into the right side of "US". The ball separates into two and forms "RENDITIONS" (in another different font) via electricity, then moves to the left and right, leaving the screen. A silver background with multiple "US" written on it forms behind the logo. The "US" shines.

FX/SFX: All CGI used here.

Music/Sounds: A twinkling theme, followed by drumbeats and a rendition of the 1st logo's theme.

Availability: Extremely rare. Seen on The Guyver: Bio-Booster Armor and Super Dimension Century Orguss Vol. 1.
