I would much rather prefer to see more animated films from Studio Bones or Studio Pierrot..their films always have far greater fluidity in the animation then anything Gonzo is capable of creating.

Hey, Afro Samurai was nothing short of amazing in terms of fluid animation. Laughing

by watching do you mean downloading off torrent and watching for free at home or actually going into a cinema and paying for an actual viewing.
In either case i don't think it is of any concern to the studio if you're not a consumer.

Yes, because it has nothing to do with the fact movies from Pierrot or Bones are based on mega franchises that would have high budgets shoved into their wazoos regardless of the studio. Yep. Gonzo's willing to create it's own content, which is something to be admired all it's own.

Yes, yes, I know about Eureka 7 and Darker than Black.

There's a whole chapter in Schoolgirl Milky Crisis on Chinese animation.

Agreed. I never really cared for anything Gonzo made.

Definitely. It's great they're willing to make their own content. If only they could make something that's actually really good. Not much of their series have interested me.

What isn't made in China these days? Have to admit though, didn't think anime would be going to China any time soon. But looks like it is.

What is next, manga going to China next? For all we know, it probably is.

It's been several years since I last watched a Gonzo series. Not since Tower of Druaga at least. It's too bad the second season didn't make me laugh as much as the first one did. Okay, yeah the first season was quite awesome, so it probably was hard to top that.

I feel I should point out that 90% of bootleg anime has English and Chinese subtitles, and (although it is exclusively dormcat's domain) we have multiple chinese dialects present in the encyclopedia (e.g. see animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/manga.php?id=2335). I distinctly remember Kiddy Grade being broadcast somewhere in Chinese as there was a flood of Chinese speakers at one point on the forums that used to be on the official Japanese site (I have a notepad file somewhere where I was trying to figure out what all the names were), and I have some of the Taiwanese DVDs.
