Toshio Suzuki has announced the closure of Studio Ghibli. Here’s a translated version of the news article:

"Just moments ago, Toshio Suzuki, Studio Ghibli producer, announced on the TV show of the MBS Jounetsu Tairiku chain effectively as announced as sources close to the studio, Studio Ghibli will close and production studio anime, leaving himself only as a company that will manage its trademarks. As stated in the program’s producer, "the production department of anime will be dismantled," which coincides with the data that we gave in our previous post on this decision had been taken from spring after the poor reception at the box office of Kaguya-hime no Monogatari.

In the interview, Suzuki has also admitted that it was a major setback for the study progress Hayao Miyazaki, one of the reasons already unveiled the portal Rakuten Woman. Once we have access to the full TV interview, adding more data. No doubt that this is a very sad news for Japanese animation, of which we are all fans, because it is undeniable everything Studio Ghibli has given the anime. Please remember that what will be his last film, Omoide no Marnie, premiered at the Japanese box office on 19 July.”

Really sad news No more Ghibli movies!

They made a shit ton of money though so that's why they could afford it. I just don't get it.

Their latest movie was a box office failure and the lost a lot of money on it. The newest movie was their make or break and as you can see from the news, they broke. It really sucks.

Wow.....
The American comparison (maybe not on the same scale, but more on trademark notice) would be like Disney saying they are dismantling.

Sad Day.

This is the movie that pretty much tanked at the japanese box office. They've been losing a lot of money recently and their stock dropped heavily after Miyazaki decided to retire so it's not all that surprising that they are closing. Like I said before sucks but it happens.

As said this isn't really surprising if you've been following their financial woes recently. Their films cost a crap load to make and they needed to turn profits on their films to continue and their like last 2 films before Marnie they lost money on and currently Marnie isn't doing well either, so it is looking like 3 straight films they lost money on.
