Title: Magnetic recording medium method and apparatus for producing the same

Abstract: A method for producing a magnetic recording medium includes the steps of causing a polymer film having a vapor-deposition surface to run; vaporizing a ferromagnetic metal material; depositing a thin film including the ferromagnetic metal material to the vapor-deposition surface of the polymer film in a vapor-deposition area where the polymer film runs with a tilt angle, with respect to a horizontal direction, in the range of about 20 degrees or more and about 80 degrees or less by oblique vapor deposition.
