Why Good Anime Is Hard To Make - if you appreciate the sentiment,SHARE THE VIDEO and spread the word!
this is something i think about a lot. being a fan of anime and manga feels like a tricky balancing act to me. the anime industry has made more progress in moving to digital than the manga industry, with streaming sites like crunchyroll, but there’s still a long way to go. and so, a lot of things i want are just unavailable. i would love to one day be able to hop on an itunes- or amazon-like service to buy digital seasons of anime, or have digital subscriptions to the manga magazines published in japan.
and while part of it is that these industries are not making these things available for whatever reason, a larger part is that anime and manga fans don’t create the demand. while i don’t condemn people for using free streaming sites and downloading and reading from scanlation groups, i also think that if you have the means, you really should pay for the things you love. tumblr is a site that is quick to condemn people for art theft and extol the virtues of supporting their favorite fanartists, but i haven’t seen people on this site always extend the same courtesy to the original work.
if you can spare $8/month, i would encourage you to pay for a subscription to a streaming site at the very least. or save that $8/month for the year and buy some official merchandise. not that fanart isn’t great! it just doesn’t offer a signal of how successful and loved a series is back to the animation house. the key is making the signal strong enough that animation companies will one day have incentive enough to give you everything you want, because they know you’ll reward them for it.
