I am having withdrawal from the strong lack of imouto anime and manga. Imouto anime was the major reason I became interested and obsessed with anime.

Bill 156 is fucking killing me. This isn't fair.

I doubt it. We still see remnants of it in some newer anime, they just never go in depth.
There was some government shit that went through in 2010. Along the lines of 'won't somebody please think of the children!'.

A girl that just moved into town gets baited into joining a fishy club which is struggling to stay a float with bare minimum members. This little shrimp doesn't want to join but with time she'll be hooked on it. This anime is reel fun I swear, don't cast it aside!

Bummer, that's mildly disappointing but good news nonetheless. Also they will be re-broadcasting from the first episode so we can expect the fourth episode from the 28th.

That sucks pretty hard. Shame it wasn't some of the more crappy stuff from this season that got put on hold instead.
I do wonder if the delay wouldn't help give them more time to work on it and produce a better product.

Dogakobo is working on two animes this season, Yesterday wo utatte being the other and directed by a more senior staff. I didn't watch that since it doesn't fall within my range of interest but it seems to be doing well plus Houkago Teibou Nisshi being a hobby SoL and directed by a new director probably means priority is given to the former, sadly. I do agree and hope that this would mean they wouldn't have to sacrifice on the quality of the anime though.

In this thread, we discuss and point out regular cliches and common occurrences found in anime.
a example would be the well known protag seat, but there are many out there, some more obvious than others.

Just to start things off, this is one I've been seeing a lot of.
Characters who fail to notice obvious things directly in front of them, often times needing someone to point it out for them.

There's a neat annual report from the Association of Japanese animators that summarizes marketshare and revenues of the anime industry
https://aja.gr.jp/download/anime_ind_rpt2019_summary_en

The report itself is in English so it's worth skimming. There's lots of neat information there such as the geographic distribution of animation studios, geographic breakdown of overseas markets, and top sources of music royalty. What's interesting is that – unless I'm misinterpreting – overseas markets are actually substantial chunk of the entire revenue stream, which runs contrary to what I'd assumed. Although it's possible that this is due to how the categories are defined; I think if you limit yourself to TV and then compare foreign vs domestic the latter would dominate revenue-wise.

Does that overseas market include merchandise and streaming? I thought revenue from streaming was not that large...

And who makes up the majority of that overseas market share? From my guess it just has to be the Chinese and the worst Koreans. Both of those groups are huge weebs.
>> No. 34374 [Edit]
>>34373
Overseas is defined as "overseas Japanese animation revenues (movies, TV, videogram, MD, etc.). So yes I think the "in a broad sense" chart includes merchandise as well as revenue from character-branded gacha-games. There's also a second chart for trends in a "limited sense" which focuses more strictly on revenue to animation studios (e.g. the "merchandising" category for the "broad sense" is defined as "domestic animation-related merchandise revenue" whereas the "limited sense" is defined as "a total of distributions (read: royalties?) receivable by studios in connection with rights licensed for merchandising, promotions, and events").

But even here overseas revenue is still a substantial chunk. It can't just be streaming because even in 2002 overseas revenue is on the same order magnitude as domestic TV revenue. Maybe it's just the fact that "overseas" has everything rolled into one. If you were to separate that category further by TV revenue vs merchandise vs others I think it'd probably show that overseas streaming revenue was dwarfed by others.

Breakdown by overseas markets shows US, Canada, and China largest in terms of number contracts for licensing. I don't know how this translates revenue-wise.

Makes sense. So does that mean things like gacha and merchandise are still more profitable than streaming by a large margin?

There were some scenes that looked better in the drawn version compared to the CG. Of course the interesting part is that they bothered to fully-flesh and color a drawn version in the first place (unless they only decided to switch to CG very late).

I found why the theatrical version of Evangelion isn't so popular in the West.
It's format is based on traditional Japanese arts.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jo-ha-kyu

Eva 1: 'the first act as "Love"; the play opens auspiciously, using gentle themes and pleasant music to draw in the attention of the audience'.
Eva 2: 'The second act is described as "Warriors and Battles" (shura). Though it need not contain actual battle, it is generally typified by heightened tempo and intensity of plot'.
Eva 3 Q (kyu): 'The third act, the climax of the entire play, is typified by pathos and tragedy. The plot achieves its dramatic climax'.
Eva 4: 'the fourth act as a michiyuki (journey), which eases out of the intense drama of the climactic act, and often consists primarily of song and dance rather than dialogue and plot'.
Eva 5: 'The fifth act, then, is a rapid conclusion. All loose ends are tied up, and the play returns to an auspicious setting'.

I know what it means; I, however, have no reason to believe you. Do you believe your word is better than mine? Oh my, then, it's almost like you're me, being pretentious, acting superior.
I mean, if we're equal, and I claim I am not pretentious but you claim I am, who is right? Neither of us, right? Because we're equal. Unless somebody is better than the other, unless you are superior to me or I am to you, then neither of us can claim to be correct.
