Well, without that injection of gov't dosh, there's just no way they're going to have the means to produce those super-expensive projects on their own. It was a nice run and produced a few interesting episodes, but arts is always one the easiest targets for cutting.

Time for private enterprises to step up.

Extremely doubtful. Why would you invest any money to train the animators of your competitor? If it was freelance or graduating students involved maybe you would see private enterprise step up. However, Anime Mirai involves people who are already employed. Or at least getting employed as part of it.

Bummer. The Anime Mirai project has turned out some really good stuff. Hope they get back on board soon.

This news is wrong.
The original news at http://www.janica.jp/11topics.html#20140405 doesn't state that Agency of Culture Affairs is not going to financially support Young Animator Training Project.
It does only state that JAniCA was not selected for the operations of the said project.

This means that either some other organization has provided a better plan for the training project per the following procedure: http://www.bunka.go.jp/geijutsu_bunka/04animator/26animator_ikusei.html, or Agency of Culture Affairs was not satisfied with the results of JAniCA's operations during previous four years.

I hope this could change Anime Mirai for the better, especially in terms of being competitive and answering to market demands. Previously produced projects frankly were anything but interesting.

It doesn't have to be from partisan enterprises.

That is some sad news to hear.Some of the projects have really caught my interest and it helped many people along the way.I hope they can bring it back next year or somewhere near the future.
