###Crunchyroll: Aniplex Shows Report Profit Gains
July 10, 2016 4:25pm CDT
After closing out fiscals years on March 31st, anime company business reported their results last week
So AoA is another business that is formally ignoring regular fans that want physical media and don’t want to be super collectors. Frankly I still think they will eventually fail in the North American market, I wish them “interesting times” before they get to that point.
I don’t see where they’re getting their metrics for what is worth dubbing from as Funi dubs most all of their stuff and they’re still in business.
Last time I had an Aniplex BD in my bluray drive I don’t recall it being a fully-filled BD-50 disc so their low episode count for video quality excuse rings false for me.
The low episode count is strictly a money making thing, has little to nothing to do with quality in my opinion.

###A Meeting With Aniplex of America President Henry Goto
September 2, 2016
I get where he’s coming from, but a string of mediocre to bad shows and Aniplex USA will crash and Burn.
I don’t understand how his model doesn’t “devalue the content” as, through its streaming, AoA is all but giving its content away for peanuts. Anyone who buys an AoA product is paying a premium for the privilege of the act of collecting it.
One puzzling quirk of AoA physical releases is that they’re all pushed as being a sort of “luxury good” but
most some are kinda bare-bones.
Since they’re rather uniquely not focusing on maximizing “conversions”, turning viewers into buyers, I’m thinking that they must really be making bank on their streaming/toonami contracts.
