      For context increasing things by 10 series+ a year would result in technically western produced series increasing by roughly 13%, since I'm too lazy to check the exact number made last year to check.

      Are you aware that Warner Bros already produces various anime series per year? And even uping it to 10 per year, is a drop in the bucket against powerhouses like Toho and Kadokawa. The later produces around 30 series per year.

          Yep, Kadokawa output is basically just adaptations of Light Novels from their catalogue. And they are always expanding. Iirc they wanted do produce 50 series per year.

    Oversaturating the market with DC capeshit until people get sick of them too. Literal clown show.

    • 3 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      There are plenty of stories that can be told that would neither over-saturate nor make people get tired.

      The DCW at one point had some 10 or so shows on that played new episodes in one year - the problem with the DCW was the expense of the effects which limited some shows, the bloated casts on certain shows, and they couldn't spend the money to pay talented enough showrunners or writers to be creative and imaginative, thus the often repetitive stories on even the better shows, like The Flash.

      Animation will take longer so we may end up with ten shows that repeat and run, but they won't have 10 shows worth of new epsiodes on every year which will impact people's response.

      As far as over-saturation - it's pretty easy:

      A YA type show, similar to DC Super Hero girls, that can also even be girl focused

      A young alien boy discovers his powers and suddenly gets thrust into the future with a lot of other young alien teens (Superboy and the LoSH)

      A history of the Green Lanterns without any human lanterns, that all takes place at the dawn of time.

      A history of Paradise Island before even Hippolyta but still with Amazons

      I mean, I could continue to make a list, but the point is that it's easy to come up with a diverse list that won't 'over-saturate'

      End the trend of uploading entire seasons of animation (and other content) in one day.
      It was a positive for streaming culture at the beginning to make people enticed, but currently it does more harm to the company and doesn't have much of a benefit towards consumers anymore

      >Series can't grow a steady fanbase anymore unless the show is pre-successful / instant-hit
      >People have less time to discuss the series and advertise it through word of mouth and online interaction
      >People will stay subscribed to your service for a longer duration with episodes spread out weekly, consistently
      >Production delays/issues can cause longer gaps between seasons

      WB doesn't do this. They didn't do it for MAWS, and they didn't do it for Harley Quinn. There's no indication that Gunn is going to do it for Creature Commando's.

      Companies realized that steady slop brings in more revenue overall than (never guaranteed) masterpieces. Same with video games too. If you shit out a bunch of cheap games you will get steady revenue (some bombs badly but that is life). Meanwhile a competitor aims for a 10/10 but spends ten times as much on it and if it bombs it will kill the company.

      Their previous plan of pumping out a steady stream of content evenly across the board isn't working anymore mostly because people don't like the recent sloppa that's been churned out these past 8 or so years gee, I can't imagine why that is so they think shitting out even more of that same kind of content (with a few fringes like SSIsekai) will fix things.

        Now I know this is a frickin' joke. Anon, the lack of appeal of the villains chosen to BE in the Suicide Squad is literally baked into the name of the premise itself! "What" fricking appeal? They have none. What appeal do they have? None of them, including Harley Quinn, have ANY appeal. Aside from an HBO MAX show, what successful adaptation has Harley Quinn been in? The other characters that show up in Harley-related stories don't even show up in any other story in any major way.
        The Suicide Squad are the total opposing definition of inherently appealing villains.

        it's ironic because the suicide squad could be a gold mine if they just ditched harley. if there's one thing DC has in spades, it's good villains. there's potential in a show with a rotating cast of characters, maybe with some mainstay members like Harkness, giving attention and development to lesser known foes.

      You see, back in the day, Ostrander's run from the 80s was a genuine cult hit, a kind of deep cut, inside baseball DC comic that took d-list characters and fleshed them out while killing others off. Ostrander managed to tell complex (at least for comics) stories about political intrigue, redemption and salvation, and double crossey, blackops shit. It's genuinely great comics. Around the time of New 52, DC was trying everything in the book, revitalizing old properties. Suicide Squad was on that list to get redone. Gail Simone did Secret Six a few years prior, and Greg Rucka did Checkmate, both spiritual successors to the SS Llegacy

      At the same time, Harley Quinn was always immensely popular, and someone at DC thought she would be an insanely marketable solo character, which is true to some degree. But rather than publish a solo Harley book, they thought they could make her part of the SS, which would separate her from the Batman world. And from there it just kind of took off. She's always been popular, but the nexus of her popularity has shifted is all. She is now a character whose function is deadpool-esque, meant to drum up sales for failing properties to an audience that likes the character but not necessarily the characters she surrounds, even if theres no good reason for her to be there. Birds of Prey included.

      So the whole point is, is that they keep pushing suicide squad to push Harley, and if the squad gets a boost from it too, all the better for them. It kind of sucks though, because the Squad works best as a bunch of obscurities given a chance to shine.

      Doesn't matter, what matters is Netflix is waving around that they're the rights holders to your favorite anime, are funding some of the major anime releases which will be on their platform, and generally just made themselves the apex on that market.
      They did the classic "grab all the best guns and power ups and the start of the match" and everyone is catching up now

        Your theory would be incorrect considering Crunchyroll has been around for much longer and has the streaming rights to a hell of a lot more anime.
        All Netflix has done is make a bunch of shitty live action adaptations and one that was less shitty than usual since they couldn't just completely ignore the original creator since it's arguably the biggest manga of all time.

          Okay, look back to when they first got Evangelion and you'll see what I mean. Both Crunchyroll and Funimation were openly angry about that the second the purchase was announced, you know why?
          Because Netflix came in swinging with the biggest gun you could possibly hold. Then suddenly, they bring the Baki anime back, then they're funding JoJo.
          And keep in mind, Funimation and CR aren't really able to keep a lot of stuff exclusive, almost all their most popular stuff is licensed to bigger streaming sites as well, notably Hulu, Netflix, and Prime. Hell, Crunchy roll will literally sell as an added service on the streaming services you already own.
          You see the trend yet?
          CR are dealing with the larger trend of switching from a safer blue ocean into a red one which is why Funi bought them.
          They're in the crossfire of much bigger companies who are planning to take all the most popular stuff left and right, and Netflix yoinking the Evangelion rights from under everyone's noses was the moment when that was made clear.
          Max is basically the only one without many CR/Funi licensed shows or downright exclusive rights to some of the biggest stuff which puts them at a huge disadvantage (look up "anime" on Max and you'll see what I mean, they have almost nothing BUT the miyazaki stuff) so they're doing this likely out of desperation to catch up to the other big boys

            Whatever popular anime they could get their hands on, some of the stuff we typically associate with Funi and viz, though not nearly as many as Hulu, a bunch of stuff they personally funded. It looks like they just grabbed any and all popular stuff.

            Some movies, FLCL, some originals

                D+/Hulu is closest things to a Netflix killer we have.
                It's basically why Disney bought Fox. Netflix basically revealed it's hand post pandemic, the studio-owned streaming services that took a lot of its selection didn't really have enough selection themselves to stay afloat.
                Fox and Warner were the big boys who had the selection to stand to them.
                So the 2010s were a giant waiting game for Netflix while they basically used their international dominance to get licensing rights for all the foreign stuff and from companies like Sony before buying licenses from the other companies when they struggled with their own services. We're now seeing them reap the reward for that strategy.
                Prime seems barely concerned with anything outside of originals and Max are now bleeding the warner classic library which they boasted to begin with for some reason.
                So the actual big battle of the streaming war is Netflix vs Disney (or let's be honest, Netflix vs an ESPN powered Bob Iger.)

                [...]
                The thing with Netflix is, anyone who is serious about anime doesn't fricking go to Netflix for those series or streaming sites in general but I digress

                If you actually took the time to look at Netflix's anime library, it's fricking pathetic and gross, because Netflix really doesn't understand what market it is.

                Only now are they starting to course correct after years of their moronic "binge" format, and not even for all their shows. The normalgays they're trying to court ironically aren't biting when it comes to anime, because they're less normal by their standards. Jojo being the prime example of this, its still a profitable IP that people will watch and get hyped for, but how they handled the release of Stone Ocean fricked them big time. The binge release ruined any and all hype it could've had, with each new release being worse and new shows eating away at their attention.

                Sure they have the money spend, but that doesn't mean dick if they can't actually capitalize on it. And for the Max having exclusive Ghibli rights is only an American thing, Netflix has the rights literally everywhere else, which while a big get, still hasn't made them more appealing to anime fans

                Frankly this whole thing is just corpo speak. WB has already been funding and disrtibuting anime for years. hell Ninja Kamui is part of that umbrella right now, even if it isn't getting the same kind of attention the Suicide Squad anime is getting. It's just now they're making a big deal out of it.

                Oh yeah they fricking sucked at how they handled some of it, but the point is they have it

                >but the point is they have it
                The thing is, there are dozens of free streaming sites out there for anime that provide even the laziest viewer with a better experience than any of the streaming services now that they all have ads.
                And I mean sites that people actually use, where shows get tens of millions of views per season.

                Anon, this might shock you, but the competition is over the people who either don't how to use those sites or have already bought into the "you wouldn't download a car" schtick. They're a non-factor here. We're talking about the services competing with one another and how that played into the decision for Warner to start funding their own anime

            For anyone who needs context, a breakdown
            >Hulu
            Seemingly all the Funimation and some of the Viz media stuff. A lot of classics and big name shounens. Likely have good working relationship with Funimation.
            >Prime
            "Buy CR as an additional channel"
            >Netflix
            Whatever popular anime they could get their hands on, some of the stuff we typically associate with Funi and viz, though not nearly as many as Hulu, a bunch of stuff they personally funded. It looks like they just grabbed any and all popular stuff.
            >Max.
            Some movies, FLCL, some originals

            This is why it's happening. Max got to the table late. They were saved a plate of Ghibli films while everyone else ate the entire remainder of the feast.

            The thing with Netflix is, anyone who is serious about anime doesn't fricking go to Netflix for those series or streaming sites in general but I digress

            If you actually took the time to look at Netflix's anime library, it's fricking pathetic and gross, because Netflix really doesn't understand what market it is.

            Only now are they starting to course correct after years of their moronic "binge" format, and not even for all their shows. The normalgays they're trying to court ironically aren't biting when it comes to anime, because they're less normal by their standards. Jojo being the prime example of this, its still a profitable IP that people will watch and get hyped for, but how they handled the release of Stone Ocean fricked them big time. The binge release ruined any and all hype it could've had, with each new release being worse and new shows eating away at their attention.

            Sure they have the money spend, but that doesn't mean dick if they can't actually capitalize on it. And for the Max having exclusive Ghibli rights is only an American thing, Netflix has the rights literally everywhere else, which while a big get, still hasn't made them more appealing to anime fans

            Frankly this whole thing is just corpo speak. WB has already been funding and disrtibuting anime for years. hell Ninja Kamui is part of that umbrella right now, even if it isn't getting the same kind of attention the Suicide Squad anime is getting. It's just now they're making a big deal out of it.

    Or even more likely
    Each episode is 45 minutes long and there are 6 per series.
    Theoretically allowing them to sequentially turn one 24 episode show into 4 separately branded shows or something similar.

      A couple misses aren't enough to disuade further attempts. Look at comic book or video game movies in general, the 90s and early 00s were full of really shit adaptations that everyone agreed were bad, but that doesn't change that people like the fundamental idea. People don't generally hold failed adaptation attempts against the IP itself. See: Shyamalan Avatar.

      Suicide Squad (1), Birds of Prey and the recent game were all quite bad for different reasons. But that doesn't change that Harley (including this version) is adored among wider circles and post TSS and Peacemaker, the Suicide Squad/Task Force X idea are well liked. Of course they're gonna keep making attempts.

      if there was any kinda useful way for government funding of media. it would be through a non-profit and awarded media grants for indie creators directly. total transparency of the money and recipients. completely cutting out the middle managers and cronies. they could do their own annual awards to replace the red carpet. everyone talks about diversity in media, this is how you do it.

      It's cause generally there's a degree of invincibility-themed power fantasy mixed in with the more famous isekai stories coming out of Japan, which is what Suicide Squad is leaning into. If you've seen the trailers, the criminals pretty effortlessly steamroll their way through all the fantasy monsters and knights sent after them, with the bigger overlaying threat being Amanda Waller pulling the plug and blowing their brains out and not that they're going up against an entire kingdom of fantasy stereotype characters. Wheras Batman Ninja is presented as just another Batman story except with everyone in samurai times, basically with no change in the general atmosphere beyond the usual level of power fantasy associated with being a superhero.

    Why are people acting like this is a big deal? Warner Bros. Japan has been producing anime for years. Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, Mob Psycho 100, Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken, Record of Ragnarok are all WBJ shows. And none of them get released by WB's US branch in the West. They just get licensed to Crunchyroll or Netflix

    By not consuming it. It's that simple. Capeshit should've been dead by the time the 1960s rolled around but its putrid corpse is still polluting media.

    Basically nothing American or American influenced can be good, period. This garbage, like all American garbage, will be sterilized and woke. It's just another attempt at subversion by hijacking a popular artform, but there's anime and there's "anime" and guess what that thing will be. I just want America to leave basically.

    Not our problem. I vividly remember years ago being told "these cartoons aren't for you anymore, go watch something else", after saying my distaste for the then current state of western animation, and you what? I did. Not just me, but hundreds of others like me.

    How we got here is nothing less than greed and arrogance by the industry. Thinking nobody had any other choice but to settle for their slop, and thinking any other country couldn't provide a satsifying alternative

    America has no-one to blame for its sad current state but itself

      The actual reason both cartoons and comics basically died.
      They told everyone but a select few "these aren't for you, do something else" and those people listened.
      And now people act surprised that cartoons and comics are declining industries.

      This, and before you say coomer, it’s really isn’t coomerism. Sure the people running these companies in the states aren’t going to be down with making Kawaii Anime Boobfestsu, but they also wouldn’t be down with making something like EVA or Akira. Hell, most companies aren’t doing even the most basic of battle shonens like Dragonball or My Hero even though battle shonens are hugely popular in the states. The fact that anime has been able to have actual meaningful storylines in multiple genres for decades while the closest the states have gotten was Avatar (20 year old show btw) and the American animation scene heaping praise for those panic attack scenes in Puss in Boots and Spider-Verse really should’ve been a red flag to anyone paying attention.

        Maybe in animation (if you don't count kiddie edutainment like Pups of Liberty or Liberty's Kids), but in the realm of live-action, there's many examples of a similar nature, that it's hard to even list them by hand.

          And we're back where we're started. Animation is NOT respected in the west, especially not western animation.
          Anime has its issues in its home country, the perception of which being one of them, but it's still allowed to more complex stories with the medium of animation than what the west is would willing to even touch.

            True.
            Then again, the state of western cartoons is not too dissimilar to the state of japanese tv/movies (that aren't Kaiju or Tokusatsu related, and horror to a lesser extent).

    This *is* solving the problem. Or at least an attempt at it.
    Big changes like this says to me that WBD has finally fired enough people, or at least sufficiently scared them, into course correction. There is no guarantee of success here, but the old guard would have tried to keep the status quo, one that has been failing for years without any accountability.
    I hope this also signals a recognition that the problem with the industry is systemic from top to bottom, and that includes the creator class on the west coast. Even ignoring the activism/messaging, on a purely technical level, western creators cannot produce this content, not at any pragmatic level. If WBD wants more action oriented animation, moving production primarily to Japan is not just the right choice, it's the only choice.
    The "American problem" isn't for us to solve. It is for the creators themselves to step up and meet the challenge. They have to compete.

          You're competing for the same audience that the company wants to attract. If you're not, then why are you even complaining? You're not providing the service the company wants.
          If you want to compete with other Americans, go to Disney and compete for one of the 3 or 4 cartoons they produce each year.

          they're not really competing since they just gave up all competition and completely surrendered to japan
