rewatching eva between final projects ┐(‘~`;)┌


the young man from the east

crucial really.
especially of note to western fans
both those who want second or third seasons of their favorite anime
and those who have demanding (western-centric) standards for the anime they consume
like that one sports animanga blogger who got angry that there weren't any of the
female-centered sports animaga that met their very specific criteria of ''quality female representation'' in sports
while dismissing sports and competitive games with cultural significance like karuta and mahjong while they did.
as western fans we have a reduced voice in the market
because we cannot catch the tv broadcast
and we're not the target demographic.
buying merch and dvd/bluray releases is usually the only way we can support the studios
so if you haven't done that...if you don't consume animanga through legitimate channels...
do not presume to make demands of the industry and studios like that sports animanga blogger did
(and demands that fail to account for cultural differences at that)!
honestly whenever i come across demands in that tone i wonder if the fan knows how
imperialist and racist they're being. applying their standards and their preferences
to an east asian entertainment industry they don't even contribute toward very much or at all. let alone respect the culture of evidently.
there's a difference between meta/critique and demands from the industry.
and i think it hinges on any one fan's awareness that they usually have little right to make demands.
money is tight. trust me i know.
and like the guy in the video i'm not saying we should forego using illegitimate sources for animanga altogether.
but do realize the position that leaves us in.



The online review Digibro spreads awareness of just how much anime depends on sales from SO FEW people, how we take it for granted, and how there are so many behind-the-scenes business horror stories that I wasn’t even aware of!  Just be prepared for some really fast talking!

Watch it, for the sake of Digi’s broken foot! 

And if you dig his videos, support him on Patreon, and follow him on the social’z.

Give Under the Dog some love, too. 7 days left for its Kickstarter and it still has a ways to go!

(slightly spoilery) remember that line at the end of Adolescence Mokushiroku where Saionji is like “I’ll find my way out too and be there to seduce you again, Anthy!” Well.
