Why is anime so cheap?
>>
Asians aren't people
>>
Japanese work for cheap
>>
Because most anime are advertisements

either for manga, LNs, VNs, toys, or figurines.

Slave labor

Niche product.

>>122815041
different production styles. Anime is made for cheap because they pay their workers cheap. Also generally anime has less frames.

Where IS the 75 million from? All of the seasons put together?

One of those two is animated.
It's not the 270k one.

>>122815041
Difference in currency worth.

Nvm apparently it was the movie, that also made 500 million in the Box office.

Not exactly. A major chunk of those 75*10^6 went into advertisement.

The majority of that 75m went towards ads and exorbitant VA and exec fees.

Haha, I get paid more than an executive producer of my Chinese cartoon. Too bad this still doesn't fill the void.
>>
>>122815341
>implying west doesn't do that as well
>>
most shows are 90% slideshow with some mouth moving. its all a grand illusion.
>>
>>122815278
>implying the West doesn't give massive paychecks to employees
If they paid employees like Japan did, there would be strikes everywhere.
>>
>>122815471
>its all a grand illusion.
That's exactly what moving pictures are.
The Japanese are just more efficient at it than others.

Of course, it doesn't change that they produce more cheaply and with less animation than Americans.
>>
>>122815041

Right example mostly just has nice backgrounds. It too looks rather cheap.

A better example: Akira

Budget of 11 million.

Calculated for inflation:

$21,730,997.46

22 million dollars for Akira. That's nothing.

>there would be strikes everywhere.
You can't strike if you've got no protection.
You can't strike if you work for an American company but live in Korea.

"College Student" isn't a job, where's the money from?
>>
>>122815626
Pleasing old men obviously
>>
>>122815626
prostitution
>>
>>122815476
You understand "slave labor" means "Koreans" right? (for both Jap'n and the west).
>>
>>122815041
Yeah why a full animated movie cost more than your average anime episode, I wonder OP.
>>
Most animators are Korean
Koreans aren't human
Non-Humans don't get paid
>But Simpsons had Korean animators
American is a SJW shithole full of people who think monkeys are equal to us.
>>
Simpsons makes more profit, therefore it's animators are paid more. Simple as that.
>>
>>122815341
>Be a freelance artist
>Made a little over an animator last year

T-that must mean I'm moving up!!

The Simpsons actually makes money so their staff isn't paid in dog food.
