Oh, come off it. The anime industry has been declining over the past couple of YEARS, well before the recession hit, although I wouldn't be surprised if it seriously hurt the industry that has been in trouble for a while. Besides falling DVD sales aren't a good indicator either since a good amount of fans simply watch fansubs, especially now, and the industry's stubborn refusal to market themselves different until recently.>>12955742

Note Geneon died because of it's too high prices and its managing was failing as well. ADV is dying because they licensed every shit under the sun and the failure of PiQ (which was a stupid marketing move since Newtype USA was doing pretty decent but they wanted more money).
