Gonzo needs to learn how to make Afro Samurai cheaper to produce. They'd have no money problems if they did.

Did you see Gonzo did the animation for Ark systems BlazeBlue? They must be taking every side project they can find,right now.

What? Since when are video game animations not a big deal? Madhouse and Studio 4c do them all the time, and they're some of the biggest studios.....

Saki is destined to be a big hit, but given the nature of the contract, Gonzo shares none of the profits.

I don't know what's happening now, but if the company is under pressure to downsize, it'd be in their best interest to prioritize other shows and pursue a release from the Saki project.

Heh heh. ANN does source 2channel a lot, but they're good about sticking to cases where the 2ch post is calling attention to/explaining facts gathered from trustworthy sources, and not random rumors that exist in 2ch-post form only. Actually I can't recall ANN ever publishing anything unfounded. In this particular case, the true source is the ending credits (screen-shot on the article page there).
Saki ending credits wrote:
アニメーション制作 (Animation Production)   ピクチャーマジック (Picture Magic)
製作協力 (Production Assistance)       GONZO(第5スタジオ) (Gonzo 5th Studio)

Gonzo has also been removed from the opening credits (which no longer include an Animation Production entry).

I hope this doesn't negatively affect the chances of Saki getting an R1 DVD license. Gonzo is so incredibly good about getting it's shows licensed.

Dunno, but Gonzo had no rights to Saki in the first place (not on the production committee), which is pretty atypical of them.

I suspect that they have no say in things like licensing.
