Why can't tv anime have the same budget as films?
Why do you guys continue to eat up this shit?
>Why can't tv shows have the same budget as Hollywood films
This is how retarded you sound.
i want to protect this smile
God have mercy on your retarded ass.
Usually, TV anime has more budget that movies... but a cour of full length episodes is about 4/5 hours. A movie is 1:30, maybe 2.
I'm talking about the same budget that films get, pound for pound.
I think you're severely underestimating film budgets, anon
Also animation is infinitely cheaper than live action.
Also anime specifically leans on techniques to minimize the costs of animation (iirc average anime episode budget = 1/8 average western cartoon episode budget)
Doesn't stop 99% of their shows to start sucking or turn to a porno after season 1.
That's not tv that's HBO.
That you have to pay premium prices for in addition to the normal service
i think you have literally no idea what you are talking about anon you just want to rant about random bullshit
Comparing premium listings to standard listings.
Good job. You made your point spectacularly.
You're asking me why anime shows don't have the money that films have, and then you ask why I'm getting the entire series on Blu-Ray?
Well, you answered your own question right there.
You want a stronger industry? Go help out instead of pouting in the corner.
Buying merch and dvds or blu rays isn't going to help.
It's an underlying attitude problem, not money.
But they don't want you to buy blurays. If they did, they wouldn't make them so expensive.
>Also animation is infinitely cheaper than live action.
No, it's not.
>paying for HBO
You realize these things usually air after midnight? Niche markets will always have less funding than mainstream films. And I bet you anything if anime went mainstream enough to have huge budgets then there would be just as much complaining about the "casualization" of the industry. Look at video games.
Buying merch and BDs from shows you like is the only thing you can do. The Japanese give not a single fuck what you think about their cartoons unless you're sending them money.
Even if you in particular or your group of associates don't pay for it, that doesn't stop their business model being sourced from the people that do.
It actually does help, especially when the late-night show has a big producer attached. If the show appeals to a wider demographic, they'll lower the timeslot and orient the show away from its niche target audience and toward its new diversity of fans. Code Geass R2, for example.
Do you know how much it cost to make a film compared to a weekly television series?
>hurr durr y tv anime no budget
>wy u liek
We just do, deal with it
Or you could make the anime fulfill it's purpose and buy the source material.
There needs to be a good reason to buy it in the first place.
Buying shit in the hopes that the next piece of shit you can buy might be better is retarded.
There needs to be a big investment that will pay off later.

I can't imagine, anon. I'm really not sure. Gosh I wonder.
Unless it doesn't have any source material, e.g. OP's image.
