They won't have any if they keep promoting Animation Runner Kuromi 2 as if anyone cared.

Seriously, if ARK 2 is the biggest thing that CPM has to offer this year, then maybe they should just shut down....

I care too.
And Negadon was good.

Everything is not just about the big hits. There is plenty of anime out there that people enjoy that will never have a big audience. Just because something isn't a hit dosen't mean it isn't good either.

I don't want to loose one company, people don't realize how small this industry really is.

But ARK 2 was just blah, so...

CPM is filing for BANCRUPTCY. What they need now is not mildly amusing OVAs that appeal to small section of what is already a small market. Bigs hits = funds to put out less lucrative titles.

Kuromi was pretty funny, but I don't see how this makes news.

Not necessarily. Big Hits = Big bucks to license, and it's a crapshoot of if you'll make that money back, even with that big hit. Even if it sells well, it might not do what you need to break even.

I liked ARK 2 and it did win an award.

I'd go to see it if I was in the New York area. I like sushi!

Big hits there also don't necessarily translate to big hits here. Like Hunter Sopko said it's all a crap shoot. If a cheaper title can do well then it might lead to more profits.

So promote it for all its worth! Very Happy
