After watching Yugioh at the movies last week it made me think.
Why is it so hard to get Japanese movies out of Japan and into other countries?
Is it licensing?
Is it cost?
I think it’s more because we are not demanding it enough.
When Dragon Ball Z movies was released at a small local cinema in Melbourne by Mad Man the demand was amazing!
I also saw this demand for the live action Attack On Titan movies when that released.
With the release of SAO Ordinal Scale in March, it begs the question, why don’t we have more of this.
One of the biggest anime films, voted for an Oscar.
Still not released outside of Japan in cinema’s.
As a community we need to rise up and pose the question.
Anime lab? Crunchyroll? Funimation?
Who will answer our call?
See you later!
