Roboteam (Kanji: ロボチーム) is the nickname given to an animation circle within Studio XYZ.
When it was established as such in 1978, it consisted of the 4 key animators that comprised Shinada-sha's animation department at the time Denki Hero Roboman was produced, thus earning the nickname Roboteam.
Most of the TV anime the circle does keyframes for aired on NHK, they also do title sequence animations such as the opening to Ponpoko 4-Kyoudai.
