Looks like /a/ was wrong again. There was about the same amount of shows airing 10 years ago as there is now.
The annual number of shows were steadily declining since the start of the global financial crisis so 2010 must've been the low point. I'd wager 2016 or 2017 will start the decline again given the negative outlook for the global economy moving forward.
Nikkei 225 (Japan equivalent of S&P 500) for reference.
its not a bubble. sales aren't up. its merely that production costs are down and keep falling as the industry finds new and more efficient ways to incorporate computers.

People seem to think that the anime industry has some fixed budget allocation that's spread out among however many shows there are, but that's not how it works. Less shows won't mean more budget.
