University student. Enjoy your McDonald's job, some of us don't have the time to get jobs yet.
Plus, the entire western anime industry could die right now and Japan wouldn't care. They don't make money off western DVD sales, they only get money from licensing the whole thing (which is negligible compared to the money they make from DVDs and sponsors in Japan). I don't support the western anime industry because it sucks balls. Make a anime channel with subs only and I might pay for a cable subscription that includes it. Or put anime in the movies and I'd actually go there and pay for a ticket. Paying for stupid silver disks for something that I'll probably one watch once? Fuck no, find another business model.
Now, why the fuck should I fork my money over to companies that create things that I detest, like cosplaying Narutards and idiotic dub fans? Hell, /a/ could actually become good if the entire industry died. No Dub Note threads? No more "hay /a/ im new to animu ive seen coyboy beepop and trigun recommend me a anime" threads? Fucking sign me up.
But nice try. Go back to ANN.
