40 animations a year? Like, as a support studio or a main studio? Because while the former could be fine, the latter has some...ominous implications.

To achieve this goal, the company aims to strengthen its production system so that it can produce 40 new animation titles a year by 2023, an increase of 20 percent from 33 titles.


Oh dear. I can’t be the only one who thinks this is bad. The staff are already overworked as it is. Isn’t this going to make things worse for them?

If they stopped pouring money into CG. They could pay their animators more and it would help reduce the overuse of 3DCG in Anime.

How about investing in 2D. CG only has a few hits, and they come from Polygon with Sidonia no Kishi and Blame, for example. You don't need to do this. Stick to tradition.

Kadokawa, how about something like 12-15 animated works a year while bettering the pay and work conditions of the animators?

Well, maybe they can also create a world class morgue for all the animators they'll work to the grave with such lofty ambitions. Rolling Eyes

I mean seriously, the market is already over saturated as is purely with just the amount being produced. That doesn't even take into account working conditions. So what's their big idea? Create a mega studio to pump out even more pointless generic titles while they simultaneously work an even larger number of staff into an early grave. How about quality over quantity? How about paying the current animators, studio techs, etc. you already have a decent wage. That's a much better idea then making some mega ultimate anime studio.
