Imo the first to get affected would be things like Appleseed. High budget 3D stuff requiring hardware, software, and R&D.

As for story writing, we might be seeing more stories with economic collapse playing a central role in the premise/plot...

man i'm sending that to all my friends at work.. I should go by me a box..lol

I work in the Financial sector, and i can tell you it is a major possibility. If the banks can't loan money to each other you can bet they can't loan man to production companies trying to make a low budget anime.

usually when the economy goes to hell investors suggest investments in gold, gambling, porn, alcohol, and well... anime is my escapism.... so my unofficial opinion is that it won't hurt it too badly.

Note: I'm not trying to promote invest in these things , but there have been studies...

Lol the Credit Crunch cereal is hilarious but on topic I DOUBT it. Anime is soo popular I think they should put more to it so maybe it'll become a positive.
Why everytime something doing with economy, people think it'll affect anime?

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"


Yes. But your a little too late. The anime industry is already struggling in a way. For instance.. their are already series that have been canceled and just ended on a cliff hanger. With the closing of Geneon USA, went alot of potential series to be brought over from japan and have good quality releases.
This is partially due to greedy individual companies on both sides of the ocean. Japanese companies wanting more for a series than what it may be worth and u.s. companies not wanting to pay for the series.
One of many problems is that with toonami gone not as many new series will be premiered in the prime time slot on the weekend.
Technology also plays a factor in all of this. with blu-ray trying to make a splash and be the successor to dvd's , publishers are making attempts to convert to blu-ray but the cost is high. and the fact that not too many ppl own a blu-ray player.
When i think about it it reminds me of the big comic book boom of the late 80-90's. every on e wanted a piece of the action. but then the trend died out and retail comic shops closed and publishers started dying out.
There are more factors involved but i cant think of them right now when i do i'll post them.

What the heck is credit crunch?


Credit Crunch is why when the credit goes into a crisis...The banks are loaning
too much money and not getting them back which means they losing some of our money...
Many people are in debt...Prices of products have gone up because people want more money =(

I don't think it would affect anime tho...Credit Crunch mainly affects
prices etc...Unless our favourite writers get unemployed but that seems unlikely

DONT WORRY
