The industry has gone through some changes lately and will continue to change for some time. The revival of Toonami, rise of legal streaming and drop off of traditional players. With everyone fighting for a piece of the pie who will be top dog in 10 years and why?

I thing Viz Media has the best chance at being on top because they dabble in a little bit of everything. The sub-license to TV stations, do simulcasts, have physical and digital releases for manga and anime and handle dubs. With everything they have going on they may have a lower overhead than CR but as digital gets more popular they stand to make a great deal of money from manga sales and subscription fees.

Daisuki has a bright future and Crunchyroll is making all the right moves right now.

I don't think Funimation will be around in 10 years.

Funimation has Hard copy sales and as much as I love streaming.... DVDs and Bluerays will be the back bone of my collection. You can never know when internet could be down toally. Rather keep my favorites close.

Out of all the companies listed, i'd say Funi is second to none. Viz would probably keep the publishing arm and daisuki seems like they are up there with MediaBlaster or manga entertainment. Just enough to live, but not enough to die like ADV or The Right Stuff.

I'm very bias when it comes to Crunchyroll, considering it is my favorite source for anime streaming!

I voted CR.
