Number of employees
The studio was founded by George Wada, a former employee of Production I.G, in 2012, but it'd take another year before the studio's first main productions, Hal and Attack on Titan, were released. After its founding, Tetsuya Nakatake was placed as the representative director of the studio. Several other former Production I.G staff members joined WIT after its founding, including animation directors Kyōji Asano and Satoshi Kadowaki, and director Tetsurō Araki, all of whom worked together on Attack on Titan.
