Why don't we see mergers between anime studios like we see in the western media market? Why are they content to stay small and limited?

Do we look like /tv/?

You're going to have to name examples of this

Well, for one, the whole industry works differently. I don't know a whole lot, but Japan is more dependent on merch/BD sales while US is more ad-based.

Outside of that, I think studios being more independent is a good thing. More creative freedom and less corporate bullshit. We don't need the anime industry becoming any less diverse than it is already.

I wanna see stuff like Nichijou girls run into Yurayuri girls, or Yurayuri girls doing a field trip and walking around nichijou city (with nichijou charcs in background) I know I know, nichijou isn't popular, but man that would be fun.

Because the studios aren't mainly the producers or property owners the same way that I think they are in the Western market, so them merging doesn't really accomplish anything that they couldn't do more efficiently by just sniping employees from each other.

I'm not /tv/ at all, but even I know Disney bought Pixar.

Although there are exceptions (Evangelion), the typical franchise has a short shelf-life during which it earns revenue. Purchasing another studio's name and IP gets you an asset that deprecates quickly, as their is no guarantee the talent itself will stay with you.

If anything, the studios that do exist periodically fission into new studios (Trigger, Khara, Mappa, etc), due to creative differences or financial pressures.

In contrast, Disney is used to making films that spin off revenue for decades afterwards (re-releases, the Princess series, etc). They needed to buy Pixar after their own studio collapsed in a heap of box-office flops, since Disney animation wasn't generating any new marketable assets. The only Japanese studio remotely similar in ability is Ghibli.

I thought Disney owned pixar for ages. I don't think I've ever heard of a non-disney pixar film.

I never followed the western TV/film industry closely, and only sort of started caring again this year.
