Studio Proteus was a Japanese manga import and translation studio started by Toren Smith in 1986 and based in San Francisco, CA.

Since their inception, Studio Proteus has been responsible for translating a great number of manga titles for US audiences, including 3x3 Eyes, Akira, Appleseed, Blade of the Immortal, Cannon God Exaxxion, Caravan Kidd, Gunsmith Cats, Ghost in the Shell, Lone Wolf and Cub, Oh My Goddess!, Outlanders, and You're Under Arrest. Their work has been released via many publishers including Dark Horse Comics, Viz Media, Innovation Publishing, Eclipse Comics, and Fantagraphics.

In February of 2004, Dark Horse Comics purchased Studio Proteus; founder Toren Smith still works for them as an advisor and translator.
