Shout! Design Works Co., Ltd. (株式会社シャウトデザインワークス) was established by Shuuhou Imai (今井秋芳), alias Akishi Imai (今井昭志), in 1992 to support his freelance work. Imai previously worked at Atlus as a dot artist. The company was best known for the Tokyo Majin Gakuen franchise, which came about from Imai's desire to work on an original creative project rather than just contract work. After Shout! closed down, Imai went to Now Production, where he would later head a spiritual successor to the Tokyo Majin franchise with Mato Kurenai Yuugekitai / Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters.
