A quick question on current events…

By TheBigN

With all of the troubles that the global economy has been going through recently, is there going to be a considerable impact on the anime industry as a whole? On the American side of things, does it make it harder for companies that seem to have troubles like ADV? How would the anime industry in other areas be affected, if at all? Can it really get bad? Does anyone know? Does anyone really know what time it is? Does anyone really care (…ABOUT TIIIME)?

I guess this is what happens when things are a little off-kilter.

    It shouldn’t be that bad, with all the world leaders, financial leaders, central banks etc taking action, though in the United States anime will definitely take a severe blow. However in other countries e.g. Australia, Japan etc the anime industry should be still fine…aside from drops in profits as people tighten their belts.

    In the current climate, I have a really hard time justifying any purchase, especially otaku stuff. I’ve narrowed it down to a robot-only diet: I just bought Super Robot Wars Z and I intend for it to last me a few months, at the very least. And then I splurged on an Ideon figure, because if the end of the universe is really coming, there’s no home decoration more appropriate.

    Definitely not a good sign for the US anime/otaku, FUNimation has taken out One Piece and taken down some time on Naruto. I think it was either Bleach or Inuyasha that went down with it. Sad to see either go T-T.
    As for Japan’s pocket full of money, i dunno. But i think their anime will hold the longest since that’s where it’s all from to begin with 😛
