Anime Group Name Generator

How to Create a Great Anime Group Name

As noted above, commercial Japanese animation has been around since the early 1900s, and there are over 400 studios in the anime industry. That’s a ton of inspiration to pull group name ideas from — over 100 years and countless animated works!

You’re spoiled for choice in creating your group name, but we have some tips to help you narrow down that plethora of options.

You might want to start by making a list of some of your favorite anime. While taking inspiration from the title itself might not be as original as you’d like, by creating a list, you can then think of story elements, dialogue, or characters to inspire your team name.

There are many examples of this on our list, from Studio Ghibli productions like My Neighbor Totoro to more recent works like That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime.

You might also consider making a parody of or altering the name of an anime you’re familiar with. Using Fullmetal Alchemist as an example, you could substitute either word for any number of replacements — from something silly like “Full Pizza Alchemists” or “Fullmetal Kittens” to an intimidating name like “Blood Alchemists.”

With our list of ideas and our tips for creating your own name, you should be able to come up with multiple possibilities for your group.

But if you’re really stumped for ideas, you can always turn to an online name generator — which lets you create an anime-inspired team name in just a few seconds.
