I kind of want to produce the best ecchi anime there is, but right I'll need a few animators lol, and a company, the company is required to license the product right, else what would it be called freeloaders lol? Anyway, let me know how the current anime market is, and let me know if you need a partner

You might want to talk with the group that produced One Punch Man. Apparently they worked with folks who do web animated shorts for the fun of it, and partly because of that actually had a rather tiny budget compared with what most people think was spent on the show. Was just watching that and some other things over at https://youtu.be/43WA2mO3mfg

Yes, anyone can buy an anime company given the company wants to sell it and you have the funds.

It will likely be cheaper or easier to make a new company though.

Can I purchase an anime company?


Gainax is vulnerable. You could do a hostile take over...

You just got to work things out with Hideaki Anno. He's one of the original co-founders of Gainax, and he's suing them because they defaulted on a loan he made to them, and they still owe him royalties....

(I'll laugh my ass off, if the next headline reads, "Fredreload, and Hideaki Anno, join forces to effect a hostile take over of Gainax!")

Yes, I was thinking about that too, but starting an anime company in another country different from Japan, but still with Japanese voice and animation drawn, doesn't work out in my mind lol

I'm sure you'll get plenty of huge offers here on Crunchyroll.

For starters you might want to do a bit of research. Obviously if you have the money you can buy anything but if you're looking to start your own company you need to think about all that it entails. You need animators, voice actors, script writers, people to draw the storyboards, computer animators, sound engineers, boom operators, lighting and stage engineers, caterers, managers, directors, producers, the list goes on and on. Maybe you should think a bit smaller for now. Find some friends who have some talent and produce your own manga or short animations. People who usually break through this way are those who love animation, those who can't help but create. The sort of people who always have a camera in their hand or a pencil and are always shooting or drawing/capturing everything. If you're an animator then draw some stuff, put something together and then release it. If not then go back to school and learn what it is you want to do. Your love of ecchi anime does not equal someone just handing you the reigns of a company to do with as you please. You're going to have to work hard to get that far. If you're serious then I think nothing will stop you. If you're not then your dream will remain just that. A dream. If you want it bad enough then it's best to get started right away and work your butt off. Short of having unlimited funds to just buy what you want, that's what it's going to take to get you there.

Thanks for the detailed explanation, man you sound like my boss. Well, drawing a manga is a good idea for starters, I doubt there is this brainstorming manga group lol, maybe a club or some sort. I'm not good at drawing, I can't even write legibly. Best I'd do is probably animate a sequence. I've always wanted to bridge the difference between 2D and 3D animation. I know 3D animation seems rather stiff, but hopefully it could eventually replace 2D animation if you get the camera angle right. With my 3D knowledge that's probably the best I can do. Then there is the idea about modeling, and all that comes with the original character design. There's gotta be an easier way to draw images, like you visualize it in your head and boom it is out with some MRI scan lol, maybe in the future sigh
