11th Logo
(2019-)

Logo:There are two Variants: Underwater, we see yellow rays shining and water rippling. We see bubbles rise up and fly freely. We pan up and zoom in (with some visible water spots) to reveal the full setting to be a forest at sunrise: there are pine (and other type of) trees with a few houses in front with grass and other trees and mountains in the background. We see red haze (explaining the red rays) swiveling through all this on the right, and the camera tilts a bit so the sun stays shining on the horizon. On the sky, we see a flock of birds flying north (The sun rises in the east). The haze now shows up to the right and moves like the filmstrips in the 1996 Filmax logo. The haze forms the "TEREBI" logo from the previous logos and also "STUDIOS" below. The haze disappears and the logo shines.
OR:
through some clouds, we see some mountains, as a flock of birds fly past. the camera moves down to the location of the first variant, except at midday, as as the haze flys up, the background fades to that of the first variant, and the logo ends the same way.

Special Variant: When the logo was first introduced, the company celebrated their 70th anniversary with a variant that added two blue flashes and extra text at the end of the logo. The first blue flash had the text:- 1949-2019 -. The second flash had:CELEBRATING 70 YEARS.

FX/SFX: Mind-blowing CGI!

Music/Sounds: We hear strings and 15 mallet notes, then we hear a reorchestration of the Terebi theme.

Availability: Current. Can be seen on the company's newer releases. the second variant was uploaded to YouTube by Terebi Studios Japan.

Editors Note: It's an amazing logo, thanks to the majestic music and the great CGI.
