Studio 4C has released some compilations of its short works. Their full-length movie, Mind Game, has been posted to YouTube. 4C also produced a lovely, though rather dark series for kids, Mahou Shoujotai Arusu.

Thanks! Will check them out when I have the time!

Anyway, does this true: Most Western-oriented Animes (like Bakugan and Inazuma Eleven) could ran for along time and became somewhat a symbol (like Pokemon), but they really lack everything else?

No kidding! Even Tomino himself couldn’t do it (look at Gundam ZZ and Victory Gundam. Not to mention Brain Powered).

Few animes are "Western-oriented" if by that you mean they were designed to appeal to both Japanese and Western audiences. There are a few well-known examples that ran against that trend like Cowboy Bebop, but the vast bulk of anime is made for Japanese audiences. There was a period during the R1 "boom" in the mid-2000's where the high licensing fees US companies like ADV were willing to pay may have influenced some production decisions, and in some cases representatives of R1 licensors were members of the production committees. Those days are long behind us, I believe.

Even a show like Black Lagoon which has obvious appeal outside Japan is still the adaptation of a successful manga series. Geneon may have decided to adapt the manga with an eye toward selling it through its US subsidiary, but Geneon USA closed up shop a few years ago now. Even Bandai Entertainment left the US last spring. VIZ Media is a subsidiary of Time Warner with headquarters in San Francisco. It has been trying to market a streaming service called Neon Alley for people who prefer dubs. It operates as a linear service, rather than offering "on-demand" selections like Crunchyroll and Hulu do, but apparently VIZ will start offering an on-demand alternative as well. Still their range of selections is pretty narrow with few contemporary series.

There isn't much anime on regular television in the US these days. Shows like Pokemon and Naruto with hundreds of episodes and appeal to kids and teens still attract the attention of TV licensors, but they have little interest in the bulk of anime series which are generally closed-ended with 13-50 episodes. TV execs prefer "franchises" that can run for months or years, especially if they have merchandising tie-ins like Transformers or Dragon Ball Z.

It just got licensed on dvd...at least here in the States.


It is also still huge in Japan.

I think there are good series that have probably been forgotten, especially now with so many series that are made every year but Rose of Versailles is a bad example. It's genuinely regarded as a beloved classic.

Companies also like to have total control of their franchises; with anime, a company may only get part of the profit, but if they make something themselves, they get all (or at least most of) the profit.

And that is another part of my point: Great Anime shouldn't be too long (more than 50 ep). Don't really have a solid proff. Just my experience with over-squezzed series.
