The same thing that keeps the roughly equally risky movie industry running:

>Researching your target audience and what they want
>Give them exactly what they want, even if it has to be rehashed a million times
>Advertise like fucking crazy
>End it after 12 episodes if it's unpopular, after 600 episodes if it's popular

This is why nearly all shounen anime are fucking interchangable and why the best anime (ie. the ones that took the most risks, innovated the most etc.) rarely last over two seasons.

Nope, as the other anon pointed out. The thing is that target audiences need to be as wide as possible. Studios, be they anime or otherwise, look for a common denominator that allows them to sell as much as possible to as many people as possible.

This is why Hollywood doesn't do black-and-white French arthouse love drama, but romcoms and capeshit and adventure movies that are predictable as fuck.

For fucks sake, how many fucking times do we need a movie telling the origin story of Spiderman? At least three times, it seems.

Repeating/slightly rehashing what's popular is the safest possible move.

Different anon here. Anime, or at least, a specific part of it is definitely getting more mainstream. Look at stuffs like Shingeki, Sword Art etc. Casuals who knows little to nothing about anime are actually watching them when they were on-going and there are quite a significant number that are becoming more aware of anime as a medium. Whether they actually dig deeper is another issue entirely.
>>
>>114660616
I don't know what shithole you live in, back when I was in elementary and middle school even street hoodlums were usually aware of anime's existance.
>>
>>114660727
Same here. The only ones I know who don't know ANY anime tend to be people older than like 30.

>>114660590

It was the closest anime anime came to being popular in the west. After that it seriously declined (in the west).

No anon, if anything, anime is getting more and more known, especially since in my original reply I was meaning the new animu like snk and sao and crap. If anything, snk's fandom has more clueless western fags then actual nips. Believe it or not, it's actually cool, now to be watching japanese "cartoons" when in the past it had been more of an insult if anthing.
>>
Have you ever thought that maybe the studios make anime because they have a passion for it? Is everything always about money? Maybe deep down inside these people love their work and want people to see it just like any artist that's just looking for validation and an outlet for creativity. and money

Only for specific types of shows though

>>114661044
You need to go out there physically and socialize more. I hate to admit it too, but anime really is getting more mainstream but you won't see it because you're stuck in /a/'s bubble.
>>
I can't believe it's 2014 and people on /a/ still don't understand who are the actual producers of anime.
>>
>>114660373
That's the point, it's getting so mainstream that it stands out as a gender of its own with defining characteristics (the japanese-like artstyle of legend of Korra) why would a a show directed to western fans adopt a japnese trait? Mainly bc practically or mostly everyone knows a thing or two abt animu and aren't all that clueless

I can't believe that it's 2014 and there are still people like you who think that /a/ actually understand anything.

Exactly. Most ppl on /a/ would shamelessly criticize SAO for having shit quality and painful cliched plot points, or would shit on snk for declining in quality with every new chapter whereas Casuals would worship the eff out of those animu all for the sake of jumping on the same bandwagon and "going with the popularity flow"
