>At GRIZZLY we aim to set ourselves apart as the world's first studio specializing solely in BOYS LOVE anime. Beginning with OGERETSU TANAKA'S "YARICHINBITCH-BU" we will focus our energy into sharing the genre of BOYS LOVE with a global audience.
They won't have a long life. BL consumers represent a niche part of the market. How many BL anime do they plan to produce every year to sustain the studio and to pay the staff?
Not yuri. A mild yuri-bait at best.
There are always 1-2 fujo titles in top-sellers.
Add that fujos regularly watch all kind of shows and produce BL fanwork like doujinshi for themselves, so I don't know what to think.
But they're not actual BL, just regular fujobait. There's only like 2 BL shows every year and they almost always sell like shit.
Are they doing the 10count anime too?
That's what I'm thinking as well. I like BL but it always seemed too niche to really be profitable compared to stuff with BL undertones that isn't actual BL.
>thinking fujos aren't an exploitable market
if they continue in the trend of adapting popular and timely BL they have potential to be huge. most of the BL produced through conventional studios is trash that's why fujos permeate other property. if grizzly/mappa is prepared to cater to them then they may be able to print some money, especially riding off the back of YOI and potentially Banana Fish
That tends to be more popular than explicit yuri anyways.
It's a single studio fucktard
Yeah didn't Nakamurashit sell ~10K during it peak. Selling 2-3K for a niche genre would be great and there are other ways to make money from a series. Stalker thread tricked a lot of retarded newfags that forget about merchandising when there's a regular buyfag thread.
I will watch any BL anime, regardless of quality of budget. The japanese know this.
Becuase actual yuri is always cheap shit like citrus. You literally can't name a single yuri anime with production values AT LEAST on PriPri level.
Holy fuck. I wish them well in their endeavours. We'll see if they manage to give Yaribu a decent production.
>sasuga MAPPA taking all the fujo money to make their non-lewd anime. You mean taking all the normie money to make their lewd anime.
Fuck. I'll not defend MAPPA anymore. They're basically prostituting themselves.
I wish they'd started a different manga to start out with, but good luck. Hope my favorite homo shit gets adapted.
I wonder if their productions be mostly OVA. If they want to keep the works as censorship-free as possible it's better they don't air on TV.
You could have prevented this; if only you stopped complaining you didn't like her anime.
I'm alright with MAPPA turning into a slutty BL studio.
It's not like they're producting a new Dororo to Hyakkimaru anime and a new Ikuhara anime. That's better than any other studio at the moment all right.
Yurikuma Arashi felt really underbudgeted
Is this what Utsumi betrayed KyoAni for?
No, this is MAPPA realising its true passion after YOI.
How are they going to pull this off? All everyone does is fuck. There isn't even any DP in this. Just some spit-roasting.
If only Utsumi was on that instead of ruining Banana Fish.
So is GRIZZLY a sub set of MAPPA?
>At GRIZZLY we aim to set ourselves apart as the world's first studio specializing solely in BOYS LOVE anime Stalker is dead.
Where do I send my application
Thankfully, China does not seem to care about BL shit much (possible because it'll be banned there)
>they almost always sell like shit. This is the risk they're willing to take. The theory is if it's lewder and more graphic and not the usual cringe shit you see in typical seasonal yaoi anime with subpar animation they you will get the dedicated part of fujos to buy your shit. Ogeretsu is one lucky big name fujo to be the first to experience
This. She can't stop talking about guys and muscles, give her a project where she car express her love and experience.
Eh I like the idea, but they have to play their cards right if they want to last long as a very specialized studio.
I agree with you, but those are bad examples (except for the first four). Chrono Crusade and Black Cat were cliched messes even for their time, but we were like 14 when we saw them so that colored our impression. Afro Samurai is an artsy "rule of cool" type thing with no real plot or depth.
And Bokurano - yes, Bokurano was good if you ignore that the manga exists. I'm not joking that it's one of the worst adaptations I've ever seen, the director literally hated the manga and did his best to adapt the same story while cutting out most of the problematic bits.
By fujos for fujos?
What can you even animate with the current broadcasting laws? I mean, it'll work with OVAs but it'll be obscure as hell and censored anyways.
Color recipe or the kinky couple one, but there's no way that's happening. I guess yatamomo has more chances to get an adaptation.
