Is there a way to see how an animation studio is doing financially? From my understanding most are privately owned and keep their finances pretty secret.

Tax returns.

Money Laundering
Embezzlement
Human Trafficking

Generally they get paid up-front for source adaptations, and so studios that keep bombing series after series can actually still be doing alright financially because the BD sales are just padding towards what they already got just from making the series.

It's when ambitious originals fail hard that they take hard hits, which is why originals are rare overall because they are serious risks. A successful original however can totally buoy a studio for a while because they have all the rights and hence get all the royalties from merchandise, and a popular series can continue to move merch for years as a legacy. For example PA Works ate shit for Glasslip while SHAFT is set for a long time to come from Madoka.

>>118966556
Unless your name is PA Works, then you just don't give a fuck and continue releasing two anime originals every year.
>>
>>118966631
I think PA will be fine anyway because Shirobako is fucking fantastic, but still they must have taken it on the chin in the books from Glasslip which I'd imagine was practically a black hole for half a year's total resources.

for what purpose? hourly comparison charts like on /v/ ahere brand loyalist will actively destroy other threads because of their numbers instead of products?
no thanks.

>>118966631

Yeah, just look at how beautiful glassSTILL is.

Glasslip was absolutely needless. Nagi no Asukara was amazing, Shirobako is amazing, what the fuck was the point of that show in between those two.
>>
>>118968143

Nagi no Asukara was okay. Visually I think it's the best PA show out there. The scenery porn is just breathtaking, you could tell they put so much effort into the show I can't say the same to the writing though. And Shirobako is definitely entertaining so far.
>>
>>118968219
Uchouten Kazoku had great visuals in its own way
>>
>>118966685
>>118968143
It's weird to think Glasslip and Shirobako came from the same studio. I expected nothing from shirobako and it ended up being one of my favorite shows of the season.

Did different substudios handle the two shows? (Is PA Works even a large enough studio to have substudios?) Or maybe they had different directors/writers?
>>
>>118968219
Writing was fine if you like that sort of melodrama. The whole sea mythology story was well constructed and the relationships were handled well too, it never rushed with anything and pacing was perfect.
>>
>>118968257
substudios don't matter as much, it's staff that matters, and since they aired back-to-back, it's most likely that they have completely different staff.
>>
>>118968285

The writing was mediocre just like any Mari Okada shows.
>>
>>118968257
"Studios" don't mean jack shit. It always depends of the staff, mainly writer and director.
>>
The only fault with PA Works is that they should change the character designer once in a while. It worked well with Uchouten Kazoku.
>>
I think Bones just killed itself with Chaika.
>>
>>118968425
Bones doesn't fund Chaika

I hate Bones for what they did to Chaika.

Glasslip was god awful. It had some potential too.

>>118968425
Don't forget Space Dandy.

I didn't really watch Glasslip because I wanted a break from PA Works shows, was it really that bad or should I watch it ?

Dude, aniplex owns madoka. They put up the money for making it, not shaft. Someone's been feeding you a load of horseshit.
>>
>>118968789
Nice, I've wanted to see this for a while. What year is this from? Do you have any more? Also, to save me time, do you know what the important parts say?
>>
>>118966556
You are all over the place with this.
LN/manga get considered by the publishing houses, Studios pool in to bid on animation during the animation in consideration period (why you get manga and LNs that have "anime decision announcement" on them and sometimes end up with no anime to speak of)
The most realistic, cheapest studio bid wins or other studios are not interested, the other alternative is that the studio has the rights to the animation of the series so they don't have to compete for it.

BD sales, terrestrial (TV) sales, internet subscriber sales, figurines and publishing house payments.
Government grants are possible too.

*monogatari series you mean.

Yeah, no. Madoka Partners owns Madoka and SHAFT is a part of Madoka Partners.
