"The ICv2 retail news resource reports in its just released ICv2 Guide #51: Anime/Manga that North American anime DVD sales fell more than 20% in 2007. It also pegs the North American anime market at US$275-300 million. It calculated last year that North American anime DVD sales had already dropped from US$500 million in 2003 to US$400 million in 2006. The number of North American anime releases dropped 21% in 2007, on top of the 19% drop in 2006. ICv2 calculated that there were 727 such releases in 2003, 733 in 2004, 756 in 2005, and 617 in 2006."

Thanks a lot piratefags. You're the cancer that's killing anime.
