Re: Uncertain State Of The Anime Industry...
Most of the shows that interest me are not big sellers in their home country, and air some time around 3am, so very few people actually see them there. In essence, most shows are the product of a specialist industry.
Mainstream shows, conversely, are pretty much unwatchable pap, and most are unmarketable outside Japan. Unless they include ninja brats, bendy pirates, adults playing cards with kids, collectible widget creatures or practically unkillable dead people.
Not a situation that is solved by giving them all to a subscription streaming service.... ONLY AVAILABLE IN THE STATES.
