Opinion: Paying for Anime/Manga may NOT help the Industry that much


This topic has already been brought up by other anime/manga review channels but I'm sharing this so that the topic won't be forgotten.

The anime/manga industry will be in big trouble in the future. And the problem may actually not be piracy.

    The other problem, and this is really common with businesses in general, is that they focus on banning without actually addressing the main cause of piracy. And it's a cause so inherent to the absolute basics of economics, I have absolutely no idea why they don't get it and just BAN BAN BAN.

    As you said so yourself, many people don't have EASY means, be it financial or availability, of consuming the product. It's the asking price and limited availability that turn all but the richest people from buying products, locking everyone else out from even experiencing the product and incentivizing them to maybe spend for products in the future. Not to mention the "legal" products are all that worth the asking price anyway. Does the streaming service you subscribe to have ALL the anime YOU want? Maybe if you're super lucky enough to win consecutive lottery jackpots, perhaps. TO get EVERYTHING you want, you'd have to subscribe to multiple services, and even that's not a guarantee, since the reason you subscribed could easily be removed, rendering your subscription pointless. I could go on, but this is already a long comment

    Of course, I'm not sure if this fully applies to anime, or at least, I know there are several other factors exclusive to anime that make this a murkier issue, but, among different businesses, it really seems like a common display of economic ignorance.

    Wow. So a long excuse for you to steal and justify it because it doesn't really matter? Scum. Pay for your content, instead of being a filthy thief.
