By the way, I’m living paycheck to paycheck currently and am quite far from being rich in every way. The difference is that I have methods of doing it that will come with time, and I am patient. I need only a few games and some time to myself to be happy, but in order to reach the levels I’m sure I can, I have plans in place and am taking action to achieve my goals of financial freedom. Not many of my intentions have done what I wanted, but the difference between a goal and an expectation is that a goal is malleable and can never really be defeated no matter what happens as long as you move forward, while an expectation, when unmet, becomes a failure.

I am poor and living on credit cards, but I am not stupid enough to blame rich people. As I said, it does nothing whatsoever to assist my situation in the slightest. In fact I would gladly apprentice under a rich person and emulate their actions to achieve their level of success. If they started doing something illegal or something that did not fit with who I am as a person, I would find another way. My goal won’t be stopped by mistakes or drawbacks.

That’s how you become rich. And by the way, many many rich people were dirt poor at one point as well.

    @ Anon 7:59 Emulating someone who has succeeded is a way to learn methods that work. The from there, you adapt based on what already works and make it better. You are the one who is thinking black and white, not me. Only the egotistical say that emulating someone leads to failure. You learn pitfalls and issues if you know how to listen, and I mean truly listen, something I know for certain nearly all of humanity CANNOT do because of their egos. I have not bought into the rich ideology… I …

    @ Anon 22:59 The rich are rewarded for their generosity in capitalism. The tax breaks they receive for their generosity exists as part of the capitalist system to encourage it. It is a brilliant part of the system to allow the money to go directly to the source, and the government recognizes that and removes itself from a large chunk of that money because of its intention. And yet most poor people somehow feel self-important and think rich people should be giving their money away without …

    @ Anon 5:14 ‘golden power armor’ – A uniform. ‘wreck people into following his will’ – terrorizing, not leadership. You’re just a case in point that nobody knows what ‘hero’ actually means anymore, even after I just explained how what you described is not the definition of a hero. So many people don’t even understand the words coming out of their own minds, or how much their minds have shelved generalizations that are not real. A hero can show up in a suit, or rags.

    @Yaku Can’t disagree there… I really don’t know what should happen. Really all that needs to happen is us young people need to speak, and with intelligence. I don’t honestly want another attack, but at this point we’re worse than an oil tanker when it comes to shifting direction. Occupy Wall Street was a movement built on a solid, reasonable, and noble intent. But intent is very difficult to maintain when something grows an essence of its own. The movement faltered because it was becoming …

    None of that is true. You can make yourself look better with a little bit of effort if that’s what you’re worried about. I’m still on P90X, lost another 10 pounds, have a sixpack showing through now, and eating cheese steaks and pizzas and such reasonably each week as treats and not gaining weight. Choose your life, no matter what it is, no matter how poor you are, no matter how ugly you think you are, choose to be who you are right now. As soon as you do, you have true choice. This is what the …

    @ Anon 21:37 The irony of your statements is they do not grow with the times either. You make valid points, but valid points from about 10 years ago. I already recognized and commented that piracy is by and large the reason for the anime industry’s growth by 2005, however afterwards, the profit-margin and growth to ratio of lost sales hit its zenith and no longer could sustain itself. Bringing the anime over has multiple issues, namely the old-school Japanese thought, which of course is …

    @ Anon 12:53 Well put, but you also do not consider that the internet was not widespread then. I am old enough to have done all you are talking about. As well as recording movies and shows off the TV on VHS. The ‘sharing’ you are referring to amongst a group of buddies has become a world-wide exchange that has no control whatsoever. You say the industry changed, and it changed to do its best to survive the onslaught of dwindling profits and sales for the new market that had the uncontrollable …

    Anon 9:46′s complete lack of understanding of how much they have to work with almost directly leads to anon 10:55′s reasoning, and these ideas are the reasons why animation studios often can’t grow without ‘miracle’ shows like Bakemonogatari leading to sales almost despite everyone’s expectations. One would hope that Trigger is being watched closely to see what happens when you come out of the gate with quality like the old 90s Disney cartoons. Then again, one also has to hope that being a …

    People who say ‘why didn’t he just quit’ have no idea what it is like to be an artist in an industry that is so competitive that you fear losing your job to one with slightly less skill but slightly faster, and never have the chance to go elsewhere. There are not enough anime studios for animators to just jump jobs. Japanese culture tends to lean toward overworking, but it’s because of reputations being demolished for going against the group more than anything. Depression puts you in a corner …

    According to the industry professionals, DVDs are still the most profitable avenue, followed by merchandising. Streaming only holds up so far, there isn’t much of a way to make it too profitable yet as anime fans only pay a smaller monthly fee for the license, and if it got too high, fewer would pay it because anime fans of the modern age are by and large too young to afford it in their demographic, in some cases too cheap to think it’s worth their money even if they love it, or growing up …
