Logo: On a white background, we see a black line that forms horizontally across the screen,then a curved wave comes and after halfway through the line, the line transforms into 2 dogs (Jack Russell terriers, naturally) with their eyes closed, then a semi circle is formed attached to the line and above the dogs and at the same time as the text "JRFP" in some italic font slides in and the dogs open their eyes. Then the dogs blink before the logo ends.

Closing Variant: Similar to the beginning expect that the dogs are looking straight at you with the left dog winking and surrounding them looks like a drum or some film reel wheel. Along with the copyright on the bottom with the date of it.

Technique: The lines transitioning to dogs, the JRFP word transition. Quite nice, but also choppy animation for its time as being a rather obscure production company.

Music/Sounds: A traditional Japanese-like fanfare with some sparkle sound effect added into it.

Availability: Only seen on JKA Shotokan's Karate: The Kawasoe Way series (all vol. 1-4) which was seen on VHS and DVD and was likely their very only production. The series can be seen on Youtube featuring the logo.
