As of May 1 the number of titles licensed in the year:

2004 - 31 titles
2005 - 29 titles
2006 - 26 titles
2007 - 29 titles
2008 - 17 titles

Why is 2008 so far behind?
>>
>>11335278
Anime dies.
>>
Because it's only existed for four months.
>>
the pirates are demolishing hopes

>>11335282

Nice work.

Great! Now we can PING him to death!
>>
>>11335300
>As of May 1

Because Geneon is dead.
>>
>>11335300
I took that into account for all the years. Each title cooresponds with the numble of titles licensed within the first 4 months.
>>
>>11335300
In that retrospect, we already have ~20 after the first four months of this year. The number could double or even triple in the next 8 months.
>>
>>11335278
2008 is doing extremely well as far as licensing goes once you consider that it is just May. But it doesn't help that two major companies went under early this year.
>>

because most of the anime of this year is lolicon
>>
>>11335282
wait, why are you still here then?
>>
From half-epic to legendary

Not bad /a/, keep it up
>>
what a stupid and useless narutard, the pic isn't fappable at all .
>>
>>11335330
God damnit I just forgot about that. BAWW
>>
>>11335278

Really easy answer:

1) Geneon died
2) ADV almost died, had to hold all new licensing to make sure they didn't lose what they had
>>
>>11335339
2 companies? Geneon is one of them but what's the other?
>>
Except both Marimite and ARIA are now licensed which pretty much makes the rest of the year moot. FUCK YEAH MARIMITE!
>>
>>11335389 see >>11335357
>>
>>11335357
Rage for truth.
>>
It's not done yet. Going by titles per month, 2008 is winning.
>>
>>11335401
ADV isn't dead though. They are still putting out dvds and licensing titles.
>>
>>11335396
ARIA anime is? fuck yes!
>>
>>11335389
ADV is like the Titanic. Just kind of sitting there for a while until OH FUCK SINKING
>>
>>11335411
No, 2008 is losing. All the years have been taken into account. If we were going by the whole year 2006 and 2007 have over 80+ titles licensed.
>>
>>11335429
oh, ok
>>
>>11335422

Sept. 30, 2008 Box Set 1 ~$40
>>
>>11335455

BTW the box set is the first season.
>>
>>11335396

>Aria The Animation DVD Collection (Season 1) (S)
>Date Available - Sep 30 2008
>Your Price: $37.49

Best news all day, but I hope it still gets subbed. Origination probably won't be out until late this year.
>>
That's actually quite a lot considering we're not halfway through the year yet.
>>
Maybe they stopped licensing generic harem and shounen shit which nobody would actually buy unless they're ANN drones. Now, Lucky Star is sure to sell like hotcakes.
>>
my vision:

>As of May 1 the number of tits licensed in the year:
>2004 - 31 tits
>2005 - 29 tits
>2006 - 26 tits
>2007 - 29 tits

This means nothing to me because I don't fucking buy moon toons.
>>
>>11335278
OP's pic seriously got me hard. Fuck I love shots like that. Girl standing over you, about to step on you, etc. Feet are my fucking kryptonite. :-/
>>
>>11335475
Not really. Compared to the previous years:

2004 had 119 titles
2005 had 59 titles
2006 had 84 titles
2007 had 91 titles
>>
>>11335396
Yeh, who gives a crap what else is licensed this year? We get Aria and Marimite.
>>
>>11335474
There needs to be an Ichigo Mashimaro pic for "I SEE A BUYFAG"
>>
Did anyone get Kaiji?
>>
>>11335415

ADV is already on their death bed.
>>
>>11335518
Oh.

In during dubfags and buyfags. Enjoy your shitty voices.
>>
Only thing better than Aria and Marimite being licensed would be Akagi and Kaiji.
>>
>>11335567
But I want to watch Kaiji for FREE
>>
>>11335596
Then do so. I'd still buy it on DVD.

ANN moralbuyfags don't deserve it
>>
because its fucking march you retard
>>
>>11335415
Tell that to Yotsuba. If they ship volume 6 then I'll believe that they are alive.
>>
>>11335629
>because its fucking march you retard
...
>>
At 4 months into the year? We're far ahead of schedule.
>>
>>11335641
There's no release date set for volume 6, so why are you expecting it anytime soon?
>>
>>11335525
Just make one that says "I see someone with universalizable ideals"
>>
>>11335707
A few months ago several of the online shops had it with a ship date in March. Now they are reporting "on order from manufacture" or an unrealistic ship date (Rightstuf 2012). Either several companies lied about Yotsuba's availability or ADV fell flat on it's face again.
>>
>>11335474

And Lucky Star Vol. 1 costs 20 dollars.

;_;
>>
>>11335357
lol ebay.
>>
>>11335865 here
Amazon still lists the release date for volume 6. It's February 25, 2008. What have you done with Yotsuba ADV?
>>
It isn't that 2008 is behind, it's that 2004-07 were too far ahead.

Amazon also lists Gurren Lagann volume 1 even though it's got relicensed by Bandai.
