By Lee Young-seok / Staff reporterMOTSUYA, Japan – When a new anime season is announced, a girl’s mind goes to the big screen, the latest big release.
However, when the anime that comes with the new season is a hit, she may also start to get attached to the anime as a whole.
The anime industry is all about keeping up with the times and keeping girls interested in anime, and there is no shortage of anime and manga to choose from.
“As long as you have a good variety of anime, you can find an anime that fits your taste,” said Takuya Okuda, a marketing manager at anime company Robot Entertainment.
But there are also pitfalls to sticking to anime, Okuda added.
“You need to be careful that you don’t become a trendsetter.
When you’re not looking out for trends, it can lead to your company losing market share.
In other words, if you keep putting out trends that will lose popularity, you’ll have to be very careful in how you put out your anime.”
A recent trend among some companies is to create anime that are both new and old.
They create anime with fresh ideas and original characters, but it doesn’t mean the anime has to be popular.
“If the anime doesn’t have any fans or people who are interested in the anime, it won’t make much of a difference,” Okuda said.
“The more anime you produce, the more people will be interested in it.
The more people who watch anime, the better it will be.”
A new trend for anime companies is creating a variety of shows, which may not necessarily be original works.
A new series is born out of a new source, or is made by someone who was inspired by another source.
For example, if a company was working on a show that inspired the movie, or the music, they could create something that would appeal to both audiences.
But this doesn’t necessarily mean a series will be popular among the fans.
“There are two ways to go about this: Create a new series from scratch and then produce something from scratch,” Okudasaid.
“Or, you could just create a new work from scratch, but not make the series that fans will recognize and love.”
Okuda also pointed out that the more original a show is, the harder it is to appeal to fans.
If a show has an original concept, but doesn’t make it to the top of the charts, fans won’t really be interested.
“It may be appealing to some, but if it’s not appealing to fans, then it’s too hard to sell,” he said.
Anime production company Robot Works has created a number of original series over the past several years.
One of its most popular shows is Love Live!
Sunshine!!, a comedy series that has become a hit for the company.
The company created the anime series in 2010 and released the first episodes in July of this year.
“We thought that we could do something that was very unique, but also create something new that we’d really like to see,” said Masami Yamamoto, a senior vice president at Robot Works.
“Our new series had the theme of ‘How can we use our talent and experience to create a show for people who have never heard of Love Live?’
It’s not really a new project, but rather a new genre of anime that we wanted to make.”
Robot Works released a total of two episodes of the show.
“People liked it, and then they started thinking about what kind of shows we could make,” said Yamamoto.
“They said, ‘I can’t believe how much we’ve been waiting for a new Love Live!’
We’re thrilled that we got that reaction.”
A similar trend was seen with the latest hit, Attack on Titan, which was created by A-1 Pictures.
A-I Pictures is a company known for producing hit films such as Godzilla and Godzilla: Final Wars.
“Attack on Titan was our first project, so we were looking forward to seeing if we could get it to fans,” said Yosuke Sakai, a vice president of production and animation at A- I Pictures.
“However, fans have been really excited about Attack on Titans.
They say it’s a new world for the Titans, so they want to be able to experience it for themselves.
They’re very interested in seeing how this new world will develop.”
A-Ina Entertainment, a subsidiary of Robot Works, produced Attack on Tiger, which had the same theme of “How can I use my talent and knowledge to create something for people with no experience in animation?”
As an example, Attack On Tiger had a lot of new concepts and characters.
“I was a bit nervous about what to do with Attack on Tigers, but I think it’s going to be a big hit,” he added.
But Sakai noted that the show was not
