I don't get it. Where the hell does KyoAni get the money to keep pouring into their ridiculously high quality animation? There was even that one time where they were able to make the same exact episode eight fucking times. It's amazing, but who the hell is funding this?

They don't seem to be slowed down by failures either. I've heard Nichijou didn't do so great but they're still going strong. And I don't know if this is true but people are saying Maid Dragon is flopping. Those could just be those shitposters from the stalker threads who want everything to fail though so that they can ruin every discussion with "Ha ha your show didn't make any money." But even if it does flop it's clearly going to have no effect on them as they move on to Violet Evergarden, which is likely to be the greatest anime ever made. So, how do they do it?

What evidence do you have that indicates Violet Evergarden will be the greatest anime ever made?

I have a good feeling about it.

That's actually bad news though, because I had a good feeling about Yuri Kuma Arashi and that turned out to be shit. Which is even worse coming from me because as you know I enjoy just about everything.

I honestly don't know. But, they do use certain cost-efficient techniques well. I think they know how to track human eye better than you do.
>>
>>154626125
Yakuza uses them for their money laundering scheme. Believe me.

Kyoani is just really well run as a business on top of having the best animation. They're the only studio of their size that went independent and became their own producer. There's some other studios that started in the 80s like Kyoani that literally still work in the same office and never improved their prospects. Those other studios struggle to pay their rent on time while Kyoani is building a new studio from the ground up.

They only make one every other season don't they? Compared to these other studios so I guess that saves quite a bit of money and time for them to prepare for the show coming after.

The industry would be fucked without Kyoani that's just how big they are.
>>
>>154626547
Fuck you Lelouch.

They bank rolled hard with Haruhi, then K-On, then Haruhi and K-On again, Hyouka and Ch2 did pretty well and they've been riding that wave since. "flopping" for Kyoani is still doing much better than a majority of other anime that season.

KyoAni doesn't spend extra money on anime. They just take their time working on shows, and don't treat their staff like slaves so the grunts actually care about the shit they're making, unlike almost every other anime studio.
>>
KyoAni is actually just a company to channel embezzled money by syndicates and government officials.
>>
>>154626547
Passione makes one show every few years and still struggles with their animation budget.

I miss when fansubs had the sponsors part at the beginning of episodes. Any Kyoani is majorly funded by Kadokawa and Pony Canyon.
>>
>>154628007
Because they have like 20 employees
>>
>>154628213
Why'd fansubbers stop that, anyway? Some of them cut out the endcards too which makes even less sense.

AHH?

Yakuza likes moe?

Yakuza INVENTED moe.

>>154628905
Yakuza is moe.
>>
>>154626950
In all fairness, most corporations have a spiel like that somewhere at some point.
>>
There's a reason why the Japanese title of the Yakuza series is "Like a Maidragon."
>>
>>154626125
Nichijou only flopped financially, but animationwise it was a masterpiece, easily in the top 3 of Kyoani's works (which implies it's also in the top 3 of all anime)
>>
>>154629650
And the other two?
>>
>>154629858
Haruhi movie and Hyouka
>>
They put every yen on animation while disregarding writing quality.
That's why KyoAni shows look so good while being soulless adaptations of shitty LNs.

I miss when fansubs existed.

I love the Maid Dragon LN!
>>
>>154630553
I don't. Their quality was, on the whole, a lot worse than what we get now.

All I need is people willing to do the few shows that get passed over, like Idol Memories.

KyoAni got rich in their Lucky Star, Haruhi and K-On times.

Since then they buy rights to every series they are animating. Thanks to that they get money from merchandise and that's usually a lot more than discs make.

Most studios just get contracted to animate something and paid for it so sales don't really matter to them.

For KyoAni it's different.
>>
>>154626125
Didn't Nichijou sell decent over time?
>>
>>154630952
So if I buy merchandise for a KyoAni show I like, I'll actually be supporting KyoAni? That's pretty cool.
>>
>>154626125
Kyoani is a front for Yakuza money laundering. That's the only explanation I've ever seen that could be plausible.

>>154631328
So why doesn't the Yakuza want Haruhi season 3?
>>
>>154630952
>Most studios just get contracted to animate something and paid for it so sales don't really matter to them.
What happened to Manglobe, in that case? What caused them to fall apart?
>>
>>154631328
It is alarming to me that this post keeps being made in this thread.
>>
>>154631615
They weren't getting contracts.
>>
>>154631717
And is there a logical explanation for why they stopped getting them?
>>
>>154631717
>>154631763
And wait a minute, weren't they in the process of making some movies that got left in limbo because they went bankrupt? How did that happen?

No wonder people consider Kyoani the strongest

Free also is basically an original which is cool.

Simple, animation quality is not directly proportional to amount of money spent
