the credit crunch is affecting the whole owrld right now and before that i heard japan had a rather bad ecomeny before hand so do you think that this will effect anime in any way? for example lower quality , shorter episodes/ series or even cancal certen animes.

p.s i saw sum of the jokes and there funny but seriously it could happen ... and for those that dont no wat the credit crunch is its just a dumbed down saying for " the worlds ecomeny if in a crisis right now"

I would believe that he means the global economic crisis. I don't think it would affect the drawings of anime, don't be too paranoid about it

lol...
it might... of course if the economy is bad..
that means the business, the empLoyment, might go down right?
and thnk of it... sampLe.. Pizza Hut . .
if they were to have probLems financially.. then they wouLd sponsor less anime right?
you know.. the creators of anime need money to buy food too...
and an anime cant really go on if there are no sponsors or funds....
thus, anime reLeases wouLd go down as well...

but
i think japan is one of the countries with good economy..
so that might happen after most of other countries' aconomy fall

..credit crunch affecting anime?..i dont think so..we all know how much of popularity anime's have..popularity means more fame, stands out with its name, and pretty much a very good business..so any anime product is really selling out alot..credit crunch will only affect an anime which isnt popular i guess..

Wow, some of these responses are rather...interesting. I do wonder if they are acting ignorant or if they just really are...but back on topic

Actually, from what I've heard, the credit crunch and the decline in economic growth has also affected Japan. Their last prime minister supposedly resigned partly due to the fact that people were pushing for his resignation since the economy has gotten so horrible over there, though I probably need to verify this source. But outside of that, there are problems which just may affect anime. If the economy really does go down, production companies may very well see a decline in sales since people are less willing to pay to buy anime and manga without money for food. Also, the companies may have problems finding money to pay for their productions, which may mean fewer animes, or possibly anime cut short due to lack of funding. Though the effect won't be quite as drastic as in the rest of the economy, it is still quite possible that we see a few bankrupt companies or whatnot...sorry if I sound too pessimistic

we Japanese will sell our rice cookers before allowing the decline of anime. instead of nuclear weapons, our Japanese Self-Defense Force has stockpiled anime. all of you have nothing to worry about.

Credit Crunch cereal has been banned from Japan's import list. you can find this breakfast favorite only in the U.S.A.
