This interview in Megami covers their involvement in Madoka.

According to an interview about their work on Universe, they formed a freelance group in order to pursue artistic expression, explaining "We both had set our eyes on Russian and Czech animation styles. Rather than working with a lot of people like in an orchestra, we prefer to create miniature landscapes that can be accomplished by working individually."

Maaya Sakamoto, who sings Universe, described their art: "Gekidan INU Curry's drawings have the quality of a picture book and the unrealistic feel of a fairytale as well as some dark humor to it. They are really colorful, cute and fantastical. The characters convey this fancy atmosphere at first sight, but if you look at them carefully, you can see them injected with a needle, bandaged, or drooling. You see, they are not only cute, but they also remind us of imperfect mortals. I had the impression each character had a story behind him or her. I thought they were ideal actors to appear on the video."
