Full article here --- http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2015-08-25/report-anime-industry-up-10-percent-in-2014/.92114


The Association of Japanese Animations (AJA) released details from its "Anime Industry Report 2015," reports the total market value of the anime industry in 2014 was 1.63 trillion yen (about US$13.5 billion), up about 10% from 2013's 1.49 trillion yen (about US$12.4 billion).

The AJA attributes part of this success to merchandise and the sale of streaming rights in China.

While a single upward trend is nice it does not indicate a full turn around. But it is nice to see let hope they can build on it

It's just like how people say Nintendo is in trouble when they have enough money to run a deficit for 40 years.
