And then the Fate / Stay Night UBW Blu Ray is collection at about $398 choose smh I have the right to pay for a fine ass hooker off backweb page instead of watching that 2d ass like forgenuine.

You are watching: Why are anime blu rays so expensive

Anime has an extremely little fanbase and also little distribution. A great anime through excellent computer animation, great soundtracks, great plot, good dialogue with great actors is going to price a lot. Not to mention the licensing and also localization.

 

Anime in the western area produces huge quantities of the more well-known animes so it"s going to expense much less yet that still does not comprise for the tiny audience, a great portion of which such as
The Hero of Time who torrent or also worse stream the present not only not supporting the studios that developed the display however the streaming network for ssuggest having actually it in public display in lesser top quality. 

 

A excellent method that large carriers counteract the price of all this is by making less copies & simply charging a lot to those that they recognize are going to buy. The collecters. The ship merchanters and the insperationalists. To save them even more rare and also collectible is why they make much less duplicates.

we have a small audience, so we dont make a lot money. lets charge them $300+ !

 

yeah thats not going to occupational l0l no one will certainly pay 300+ for a fkin 1-2 hour movie

Probably not yet someone else will certainly. Also as anime is in it"s present state, this is the more widely thought better alternative. 


The reason they are so expensive is bereason that"s the price the majority of people that actually buy anime DVDs (hardcore fans, collectors, and so on...) are willing to pay for them. 

 

Since illegal downloading and install ended up being so mainstream, the "18 - 29 year old without money demographic" pretty much kicked itself out of the typical DVD targain market :p

Yeah some world will certainly x)

TV / streaming licensing & milking collectors / hardcore fans = their entire organization design :p

Quick conclusion:

 

Physical media in entertainment has actually become even more of a vanity item than an actual way to purchase the content they store, it"s the reason why cassette and vinyl sales outpercreate cd"s in physical music sales and also why expensive "ultimate collector" edition dvds are so prevalent. Due to the fact that the internet made media content essentially worthless, content producers had to adapt, some of them battle through it, others carry out a brilliant project at it.

pay for anime?


Yeah for the mirrors I"ve really appreciated that have provided be via hours of entertainment, I wanna assistance them as much as feasible and keep a neighborhood copy of it for myself. Not to cite all the extra stuff they also sell choose art work-related, redone scenes, animator Q&A"s, and so on. But I"m a cheap bastard.

I"ll more than likely end up buying the Bakemonogataari Blu ray later on this week simply for the sake of that present, yet fuck I wish they made this stuff easier to access through cheaper prices.

If you were seriously not living payinspect to payexamine, you might afford a laptop or tablet which you deserve to then stream anime for free.

That"s always an alternative.
