    Unfortunatly, as it is right now, the Japanese Anime Industry is in a bubble market that will either have to deflate, or implode. Many a Anime Studio has expanded production (and increased licensing costs for a series) based on the assumption of growing world demand for their product. The reality in the US (the largest foreign market) is that Anime demand has stablized, with licensed DVD sales actually shrinking.

    Mean while in Japan, experienced produces are saying that anime series, that in the past would have been skipped over because of poor plot lines, are being produced, driven by the investment companies (since anime is one of the vew industries in Japan showing growth in the past few years) result in a lack of resources for individual series...

    The DVD remake of the 'Negima' release was made necessary because of the poor quality of the initial TV release. The remake still required Studio Xebec/Production I.G. to transfer the production team from the just finished 'Fafner' to do this...

    A recent Japanese Goverment white paper on the Anime industry stated that more Anime is being produced now then in anytime in the history of the industry, but only the most popular series are making profits. Under these market conditions, contraction of the industry is only a matter of time...
    but almost no one buy's license anime so that means sales are going down?

    Estimates are that more counterfeit bootlegs were sold dollar wise then licensed anime last year by industry estimates... The fact remains that money makes the world go around... The number of anime series licensed this year by US distributors is less then 50% of the number of series licensed two years ago. And if Japanese Studios can't recoup their productions costs, (as their being pressured by over pricing of license fees, over-production of new series, over-estimating the demand for anime, fansubs, bootlegs killing their DVD sales in both Japanese and oversea markets, and cheaper illegal US imports!!!) sooner or later their going to have to reduce producing new series

    Private funding from whom? I don't think any company would be interested in sharing an anime company either than...investor interested in anime and I don't see that. I would say more support from the government sounds more practical. Anime is one of the largest entertainment/culture export, making the Japanese culture very popular and influential to foreign countries. Japan may not a have a powerful army but they have a strong influential culture popular to the young generations.

    Another problem is outsourcing. Anime is being done not in Japan but in China and Korea. This is decreasing the domestic wages for animators in Japan and demands, causing shortages of animator. I mean, I wouldn't wanna go in to a career with low job security, with low demand, poor working environment and low wages.

    so actually US industries are stealing the money from the Japanese products industries.

    It's not so much the US distributors (who paid big bucks.. estimated about $25,000 to $100,000 per episode for the Region 1 license) but unethical exporters/importers who do it. And there's enough demand for these grey market products that companies are producing regionless/region free DVD players (which is a technical violation of the DVD region control license) for sale. This is the primary reason why US DVD releases lag the Japanese release by 6 months to a year to give the Japanese distributors a chance to sell their more expensive product... And how much more expensive? US DVD releases average 3 - 4 episodes per disk (with extras) at a average sugested retail of $25 - $30. Japanese DVD releases average 1 - 2 episodes per DVD (usually without bonus features) at a average price of $40 - $50 dollars. Japanese DVD are more expensive because for most anime series, most of the production costs are expected to be recovered through DVD and merchandise tie in sales. TV ratings (which for most Anime series, are shown in the post mid-night time slots) are small and are little more then advertising for DVD sales. In fact, it has recently become the trend for production comities of less popular anime series to actually PAY THE BROADCASTERS to have their series shown instead of the normal other way around...
