Would the quality of anime increase again if we had 10 anime each season instead of 30?
If a studio only made two shows per year quality would potentially go up too,
But there's no way of knowing for certain.
No, it's a different logic. According to the logic of this poster, the best way to improve the quality of anime would be 0 shows every year. Which is a different kind of logic op was applying. Which is why that poster is most likely an idiot who fails at basic logic.
What stops them putting out trash fantasy harems?
Quantity is not even a problem here.
For OP's assumption to be correct the quality of anime would increase as long as the number of anime each season decreased.
Therefore it can be assumed that according to OP's logic the best quality can be achieved with the minimum amount of anime per season possible, which is 1.
Depends on what aspect you are talking about. The animation would never get better. But the plots would get better. They ran out of ideas for plots years ago yet here we are, 10,000 mysterious magical girls that appeared in a fated way later. With less anime, there would less need to scrape the bottom of the bucket for plot ideas.
Shit, they even have a hard time coming up with a name thats not infringing on copyright laws.

No. Once again you fail at logic. The only thing we can deduce from op's logic is that the quality increases again if he have 1/3 of the amount of anime we have each season., and that 10 is the minimum number of anime that will air.
Did any of you guys actually went to highschool?
But it would be even better if Anime stopped giving their animators actually nothing for their work.
Part time workers make more money than full time animators.
Of course you're not going to make a quality product when you come home with less money than you spent to GET to work.
Why? Theres many anime for different audiences like fujoshi, chuunis, harem shows, tie-in toy shows, theres something for everyone every season.
Bigger budgets for fewer anime aren't going to make it better. They just dont make your edgy 2deep4u original anime because it has a higher chance of financial failure.
except that im correct.
10 is the minimum number he names, and 30 the maximum. what other numbers does he name? take a math class, kiddo.
yes, that's why my logic is correct.
He presents 10 as a hypothetical quantity. The logic is that fewer anime will result in higher average quality. If this is true, then in order to have the highest possible quality anime per season, you'd need to have the lowest possible quantity, which would be 1.
Sticking strictly to his case of "30 vs 10" then the answer is simply "no".
I am not exactly knowledgable about the OVA market but most of the recent shit seems to be either a safe later release for already established and earlier popular shows, or an omake for manga/bd volumes, etc.
There's the internet as well now, look at how puchimas did it with ONA releases. Also distributing your anime through original OVA seems like financial suicide to me, pretty archaic.
>The logic is that fewer anime will result in higher average quality.
This is the theory which you applied with your own failed logic, and has nothing to do with what OP stated. Once again, apply common sense, it might help you in other situations as well.
>has nothing to do with what OP stated
Can you actually read?
>Would the quality of anime increase again if we had 10 anime each season instead of 30?
10 is a smaller number than 30.
>Would the quality of anime increase again if we had fewer anime each season?
The answer is no. Having less anime each year means studios have less opportunity to produce series, which means they're only going to bother producing series which are a safe bet for profits. You would also see smaller studios, unable to compete with bigger studios for time slots, fall out of production, and be consumed by the bigger ones. Now, each season is filled exclusively with shows produced by 4-7 studios, who, with less concern for competition due to having absorbed said competition, can focus on maximizing profits.
Yes and no.
They might get more time/resources to work on the single show, thus with less QUALITY and such, but that doesn't mean we'll stop getting shit.
Actually, the ratio could worsen (even more) as the stuff that sells would still be the same.
>40 shows per season
>10 shitty LN adaptations, and maybe 5 actually worthwhile shows
>10 shows per season
>8 shitty (but now pretty) LN adaptations and 2 worthwhile shows
Even cutting in half (about 25 shows) the current amount would already have huge effects though.
>Can you actually read?
i see you ran out of shitty arguments to make, and now you try lazy exchangeable one-liners
>10 is a smaller number than 30.
well, if this is what you can take out of this thread, you are a smarter person than you were when you first starting posting in it, so i am happy for you.
>The animation would never get better.
Of course it would, as long as there was the same amount of staff in the anime industry. There would be fewer projects so more time to spend on each one.
It's funny if you think you've actually made a point. You've proposed no rebuttal or opinion. Since the first post made in response to mine, there has been nothing but attacks against my posts followed by no posts supporting a counter opinion.
>You've proposed no rebuttal or opinion.
Oh i've proposed several of those, all of them invalidating your own argument. I suggest you read them again, if you didn't understand the first time.
You are all misunderstanding the oh pea.
To paraphrase a great man: given all things equal, that with the greatest length is more immersive (thus more pleasurable (thus better (for those capable of experiencing it))). Less shows per season would mean longer, thus better shows.
Imagine what CCS would have been like if it came out today, with today's technology and budget, while keeping the same length.
Keep telling yourself that. More goes into a rebuttal than saying "no ur wrng i am right".
>What to Do In a Rebuttal
>The goal of refutation is to answer your opponent’s arguments. The steps of the refutation process include:
>1. Identifying the particular argument you are refuting

>3. Supplying additional evidence to support your claims
"are you an idiot", arguing about "different kinds of logic" without ever expanding on what those "kinds of logic" are or how one could be more or less correct than an other, and placing arbitrary boundaries and goal lines so that they better suit your opinion, does not constitute a counterpoint. At no point in the entirety of the thread have you, or anyone else, even attempted to explain how the quality and quantity of shows airing in a season are related in opposition to me.
>can only use math as far as algebra and not polynomial
>never heard of two variable optimization
It's a tradeoff between number and quality. The ideal lies somewhere in the middle of either extreme.
I'd say around 15 would be ideal. In the current state, we just have a bunch of shit. But I think with 10 it is too few.
There are roughly 50 to 60 anime in a season if you count stuff /a/ doesn't watch. Go into an AOTS thread and you'll see not everyone likes the same shows, so having variety is better.
In fact, despite so many anime airing I only get one show of my favorite genre per season on average.
The issue isn't the number of anime, it's the purpose it was made for; creative vs commercial. It's rarely one extreme or the other, but a proper balance improves the quality of anime.
Lowering the variety, or number of shows produced, would make absolutely no difference to quality, unlike what morons like >>124157838 suggest.
This is due to the fact that every single show ever produced has its own earning potential, and it is not always related to what other shows earn (even if they do compete for time slots and customer money, in the longer periods this evens out and has no meaning.
That "earning potential", and ability of the makers to realize those earnings, determine how much is actually spent on making any given show, and determines what you perceive as quality.
Right now, japs still hopelessly suck at seeing where the money is and how to get it, while shareholders whine, and therefore they can't allocate bigger budgets. Meanwhile, animators are starving poorfags already, and moving to korea, vietnam, china and the like did not do much in terms of cheaper production at same quality levels. Unless you were aiming for QUALITY.
The industry has improved a bit (the existence of CR is a tiny ray of hope) but it is still led by fucking clueless grandpas whos world stopped with a casette player approach. They believe commoditization is the way to go, and until they give that up, nothing will change.
Exactly, why would you think I was saying anything else?
This is 100% correct. Just because they start making less anime doesn't mean they won't try to maximize profits for each anime. The production comittees may not understand what factors drive big sales, but they do know that animation quality is not a major one. Thus budgets would not increase.
You know what would make a big increase?
Kill every kid below 15 years old in japan.
Then every shit that appeals mainly to kids will be financially bad, also their dads will have more money to spent in delusion so they'll spend it on anime.
