The ‘guy in woman’s body’ idea isn’t really baseless though. I mean there’s no evidence for it, but there’s also no particular evidence I’m aware of against it. The Batou and Kusanagi discussion that hinted it was a possibility is of course where it all comes from, but it was more of a quick moment that left that as a seed in the watcher’s mind.

I think based on what has happened, her really being the consciousness of a man would almost detract from her character a bit, and yet I couldn’t explain why, so it doesn’t really matter unless they made it matter somehow.

    @ 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 …

    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 …

    The $60 per DVD/Bluray is also part of their horrible model, we all know this, but the sales in America are also drastically low even after the market was adapted for piracy and no longer has the $200 for the Trigun box set I paid for. There was that very minor point where we had the chance to show some potential when they catered Big O to us as a second season, but unfortunately that wasn’t really a very strong show in general. I wonder what could have been if that succeeded.
