Since DVD/BD sales are the lion's share of income for late night shows (as well as OVAs, obviously), if that market dried up, so would the late night time slot, leaving mostly just children's shows (which make money from toys and actual third party advertising) basically we'd wholesale jerseys be back in the 70s and 80s. (Some people might be happy with that. )edzieba wrote: Gundam would like a word with you. It is and always was, right from 0079, a vehicle to sell wholesale jerseys toys and kits. And has been immensely successful because of it. TV showings sell toys/etc because people then authentic jerseys wholesale actually know about the show. Digital distribution has pretty much usurped TV already (with anime in Japan alone, Winny/Share/PD is the ubiquitous method for viewing, not DVR recordings). Removing the costs associated with having to press large numbers of DVDs, combined with a larger number of people watching, only means more sales Cheap Probowl Jerseys for other merchandise.The kids tv model is kids watch the show buy the toys. Kids who already have the toys watch to see their toys in action so new toys are added so the kids have to annoy mommy daddy to buy those for them. Kids cereal snacks either pay to have the show made or pay to run commercials so the kids will whine to mommy or daddy to buy them that stuff also. DVDs are just icing on the cake in that scenario.So when a fan shares the file minus the commercials, the products aren't pitched, plus the people sharing are probably old enough to not be interested in the stuff originally pitched in the commercials, although they might rabidly buy the toys.2) There will always be people who want that hard copy. The issue is will it get to a point where there won't be enough? Probably, but is that necessarily a good thing? Is your vision of the future all that great? There are things that have been lost I say are sad. There was a time when we had fairly liberal return policies at stores, but for this or that reason they went away. I knew a guy who bragged he was the reason for Lane Bryant dropping their policy of exchanging anything at any time because his wife would wear an outfit for 3 yrs, it would wear out he would take it back as being disatisfied with it. So everyone who maybe would buy something, keep it in the closet unworn for 6 months, then decide they were never wearing it appreciated the right to return that unused product lost out to jerks like my co worker.The bigger the retailer, the more that retailer can say "I demand a discount because I can move XX product. Don't give us the discount, we'll sell your competitor" This is the exact model warehouse stores like Costco use buying in lots to get the best deal.TRSI offers a 25% discount on most manga daily, but not all. There are some companies (like Go) that they sell full price because they haven't cut a deal, but I believe Go has a discount at Amazon. Sometimes that's the retailer. People would regularly whine at Broccoli panels why did Walden get their titles before everyone else. Broccoli reps patiently apologized, but said in order to get their books (being a small publisher) into a national book chain, they had to sign an exclusivity contract allowing the chain to sell their books 3 months earlier than other sellers.Often when there is a sale, that is when the manufacturer has granted a deeper than usual discount under the plan more the retailer will move more of the product.In case you didn't know, not all charity fundraisers are 100% charity. We have people who stand outside stores with a little red bucket who are paid a salary out of that bucket. There are some fundraising groups who skim half or more as their fair share for their work. You could actually be donating only 10% to that charityAnd the same applies to merchandising deals. When you see that official "NFL" sticker, you do know the TEAM isn't getting all that money. A certain amount goes to the seller as profit (what you paid less dealer price). The manufacturer's wholesale price is his costs plus a profit. That cost probably includes the licensing fee unless he's a subcontractor just making the item for the person who did license the item from the license holder. The license fee is all the profit the license holder makes off the item. If it's a big name license like Star Wars, percentages might be involved, but overall, that $10 plushie IF it's officially licensed not a bootleg probably nets the studio $1 if that much.So while you're gloating over those dollar amounts, again, in America that represents a contract an American license holder has made with a company to produce merchandise for the US market. The US market's idea of merchandising is largely toys aimed at kids so those sales are likely YuGiOh Cards, Naruto Dolls, etc.Stuff that doesn't have squat to do with the vast majority of anime titles marketed in the US. Those toys reflect the US licensee getting a cut then maybe the Japanese studio getting a piece.How can you imagine they're making so much when common logic would suggest otherwise? A larger studio such as Toei might get a bigger slice, but a smaller studio is more likely lucky to get 50 cents or less per figure
