Does Bandai Visual's numbers reflect its investment in the North American market? It is hard for me to believe they are even getting a 1.0 return on investment.

I think that this is for Japan, although I like to see how they are doing the US.

Still even the companies that are making profit are all basically not related to anime. One is from letting people go, and one is from arcade. Which makes me think that the companies really must be needing the licensing fees to turn their profit.

I mean is there anything coming out currently, which will be remembered in 5 years time? I don't see many GIT's, or FMA's coming out currently.

Hokum, what about Death Note? Also... Ouran was pretty recent and funny as heck, Haruhi was Haruhi, and both Naruto and Bleach will be remembered if only for their length and fanbases.

Anyway, it's just a drop in profits. It's not GOOD, but... they're still making millions.
