Closing Logo Group

Background: Urban Vision was originally an anime company founded in July 1996 by Mataichiro Yamamoto which is located in Los Angeles, California; the company is still active, but stopped releasing products in 2010 (following the demise of the company) and most of there titles have now been picked up by other anime companies.

1st Logo



Urban Vision (1996)(HQ)

Logo: On a black background, we zoom across a thick, black gold with grey in between the lines. There is a city backdrop with searchlights and a large object in the distance. We zoom towards the object and rotate to reveal a red circle with a large, white V surrounded by "URBAN VISION" in red and yellow. There is a city backdrop also behind it. The logo zooms back and the texts then moves in front of the V.


Cheesy Factor: …which looks very dated.

Music/Sounds: An sound effect from the Gatchaman OVA’s 1st episode, but edited to be made creepy.

Availability: Rare; found on some anime such as Parasite Dolls, Final Fantasy: Legend of the Crystals, Slipstream, and Pet Shop of Horrors.

Scare Factor: Medium to high. The creepy atmosphere and the sounds may not sit well with some people.

2nd Logo

(2000's-2007, 2008-2010)

Logo: TBA.

FX/SFX: The panning.

Cheesy Factor: Not too shabby this time. It looks better than its precursor.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Is only a trailer logo, so it's more common than the other logo. You can find it on trailers of their products.

Starting in 2008, this became their new logo, for streaming material, meaning anime and aisan cinema, only on Amazon Prime.

Scare Factor: None.
