Sunrise Inc. (株式会社サンライズ, Kabushiki-gaisha Sanraizu?) is a Japanese anime studio and production enterprise. It is currently a subsidiary of Namco Bandai Holdings. Sunrise was formed in 1972 by former members of Mushi Productions under the name Sunrise Studio, Ltd. This name was later changed to Nippon Sunrise and later to its current name, Sunrise, Inc. Sunrise had always worked closely with the toy manufacturer Bandai, marketing primarily mecha anime based toys. In 1993 Sunrise merged and was later purchased by Bandai against the wishes of Gundam series creator and longtime anime director Yoshiyuki Tomino. The now toy and video game company Bandai eventually merged with Namco to form the current corporate structure.

Among Japan's largest and most famous studios, Sunrise is renowned for several critically-lauded and popular original anime series, such as Gundam, Armored Trooper Votoms, Vision of Escaflowne, Cowboy Bebop, Witch Hunter Robin, My-HiME, My-Otome, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, as well as its numerous adaptations of acclaimed manga and light novels such as Dirty Pair, City Hunter, InuYasha, Yakitate!! Japan, Planetes, Keroro Gunso, Gintama and several others.

Anime created by Sunrise have won the Animage Anime Grand Prix prize are Mobile Suit Gundam in 1979 and the first half of 1980, Space Runaway Ideon in the second half of 1980, Crusher Joe in 1983, Dirty Pair in 1985, Future GPX Cyber Formula in 1991, Mobile Suit Gundam SEED in 2002, Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny in 2004 and 2005, and Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion in 2006.
