Love Live! S1/S2

In other words, animators are superspineless ultra omega betas who can't help it that they're such social pushovers that they can't even organize themselves into an union to help each another out, and they'd rather beg for gaijin money to finance them a place they can sleep for 2 and half hour instead of having to stay at their workplace.

Comics were actually a thing until the 90s. Big comics could regularly push sales into the millions, and comics were something that EVERYONE reads, not just niche groups like artists or nerds.

Now you're nerdy if you read comics, and sales rarely pass 100k unless you're a current trend or a major title. The only reason the two biggest comic book companies didn't fail is because they were bought by Animation studios (Warner Bros bought DC, Disney bought Marvel). And the comics made that those studios are now specifically written to support the movies, and are only really kept around to promote the shows/movies more.

Just of a couple of things too. If you look at this recently published interview with an anime production company.

http://nlab.itmedia.co.jp/nl/articles/1706/18/news001.html

>――製作委員会に入ると大きな利益が得られるのでしょうか
>制作会社A氏 : そんなことはありません。基本的にアニメ作品10本に出資したとしても大体9本は外れます。

Interviewer asks if it is likely there are big profits to be had from being part of an anime production committee. Production company guy responds no not at all and says that 9 out 10 anime are a flop.

Further on he also makes the point that lots of people assume that big sales = big profits for the production committee when this isn't always necessarily the case. He says it has often been the case in his experience that when an anime turns into an unexpected hit the manufacturer of goods such as figures will end up in the red after it finishes airing because they will produce way more stock then they can sell and it will take a long time to recoup it.

I'm pretty sure that they're just doing creative accounting to pretend that they're making huge losses all the time, just like western movie studios do so that they don't have to pay anything to writers at all.
>>
>>158668543
It's the whole reason production committees exist. One studio alone can't afford to make 9 flops in a row and wait for the tenth show to be a hit. 5-10 huge companies investing small amounts each can afford to lose that amount 9 times before getting a hit.
>>
>>158656654
That's what's so amazing. Just look at the 60k+ series. There's 7 of them total and 5 of them are from this decade. Just last decade being 60k+ would be considered god-like and unparalleled which looking at it, it's pretty true since the only older show which did that is Gundam Seed which was huge (Bakemonogatari is right no the edge of the decades so it's a bit iffy). Now it's almost like there's one every year.

Most shows do eventually make a profit after several years.
You just gotta be patient. Since those huge companies produced bajillions of products, they get constant profits all the time.

no, 90s comics sold good because they kept printing out thousands of collector's editions that went on to be worthless than beanie babies are now worth. no one read comics in the 90s.

You think an ANN article from 2012 is a more reliable source than an interview with an actual production company staff member from last week?

>>158665174
Does it matter? They are both good shows.
>>
>>158668935
Sure. After all, lying is extremely easy to do.

You have to remember anime is fucking expensive to buy, You buy most vidya for what £40-50, Anime sets can go for way more so honestly with these sales it's looking pretty good.

Look at YOI, It wasn't anything special but racked up 67k easily.

This. It defies logic that this supposedly perpetually on the verge of bankruptcy industry is pumping out 50+ shows a year for the last 15 years+. Is it because the Emperor decreed that his subjects must continue to produce cartoon slideshows at a loss for 100 years to atone for losing the war? I suspect it is because there are good economic reasons for these companies to invest in this.

There isn't even a source in your article just "an executive once said..." on ANN, a notoriously inaccurate website.

9 out of 10 shows failing doesn't mean you don't make all that money back and more on the 10th. That is exactly what promotes making so many shows. If you throw enough cheap shit out one of them will hit eventually. Consider that nobody forces studios to fund their anime through Production Committees. They do it because they would go out of business if they tried to go on their own because they couldn't sustain all the flops. There is literally no reason to rely on such a shitty system if they could be making money reliably time after time.

The medium is called animation, not any of those other meme factors.

>>158669070
Now, to play the devil's advocate, it is possible that it really is making huge losses all the time, and the huge profits are just false values they put up to trick more investors into lending them money.
It's not the first time that Japanese companies would do such a thing (see the Toshiba accounting scandal).

Sifr was even better. Otome and Zwei were failures from the start. Next Mai-series should be an OVA series.

>>158656171
Yeah that's why UBW sold more, right? Oh wait, I don't see it there, how come, anon?
>>
>>158669186
The Production Committee system has more to do with the general risk aversion of Japanese in business and the fact that when a production fails, the responsibility for this also is spread across the committee. That said, it's actually a smart model for an industry that has a lot of flops.

Here is a quick example Kemono Friends had 10 different companies invested in it.

For Kemono Friends ignoring online digital sales which were over 120,000 on iTunes Victor Entertainment sold
52,000 Albums at 3240 yen = 168,480,000 yen = $1.53 million
32,610 OP Singles at 2100 yen = 68,481,000 yen = $617,658
Total $2.14 million revenue

Now even if we say half of that was taken by the retailer. Kemono Friends would have been so cheap to make that divided by 10 companies they couldn't have invested more than what $100,000 maybe? So profits of over $1 million from a single hit show. They could invest in 9 other flops now and still break even.

>>158669444
It's the same thing either way. It doesn't really matter if it was instituted initially because of risk aversion or initially because of flops but it will be perpetuated because of flops.
>>
>>158669327
New Mai Otome series when?
>>
>>158669444
Well they have to be able to stem the loss.

I guess a Production committee does not consume money by simply existing. should be a lean affair.

Maybe the French. They seem to like anime style techniques.

Whenever I see shit like this all I can do is be surprised people like this even exist. The existence of the anime industry has nothing to do with you, murricans or comic books.

You're right that it's only part of the equation. Tokusatsu and mecha survived on merchandising far more than VHS sales after all.

Series like Free! & Yuri!!! On Ice are prime examples of how narrow demographics can still be viable when they're known to be extremely consumerist. It's part of the reason why Western media is always obsessed with being family friendly. That's a nice way of saying, we want dumb housewives to watch because they have a lot of expendable income and are known to be loose with it when you appeal to them.

I've always wondered how Love Live! managed to eclipse [email protected] so quickly. You'd think the older pre-established franchise with more tie-in media would have an obvious edge. Or maybe that's just it, [email protected] is far more successful in its games and audio discs than the anime.

I knew Shingeki no Kyojin was a hit but I didn't realize it got that big. Looking at /a/ you'd think Kyoani descended from the heavens but looking at these numbers, they've really declined in the last decade.

That is odd. I mean where's the cut off? Most mecha anime are like 70% cgi these days.

Highschool drama presented well with unique stylized animation, wordplay/mysticism that Nips love, and plenty of the bottom line. Appealing to a very wide audience. Personally I got tired of it by the White Snake arc. Can't deny the character designs and animation are great. Not exactly a fan of the in media res presentation though. Had a lot of the same flaws as Kara no Kyoukai.

The industry runs on Otaku pandering, what that means is putting new waifus/husbandos in never before seen situations or settings. Big sales depend on this.
Every few years there is a new way to pander, these last few years it's been Military+Moe, Idorus and Isekai.

So, what's next? Surely we haven't run out of things to waifu.

>>158674078
>he industry runs on Otaku pandering
Anime? Not anymore now, no.
It runs on women and teenage boys (hardly otaku, but anime has become that much more casual now), while seinen otaku has switched to manga/LN/games now.

That's retarded and delusional. They're otaku too.
Anyone who buys BDs/DVDs is an otaku, someone obsessive enough with a property he's willing to fork 70$ for a 1 or 2 episodes of QUALITY anime.

teenage boys?
seinen otaku switching to manga/LNs?

kek, LNs are so shit because they're cheap to produce and sold cheaply, they're as worthless as toilet paper. The price is so low, so teens can afford them. Otaku are still expected to read all the well known ones though.
