Anime: the Japanese industry slowed down by Covid-19, all official data​



The Covid-19 pandemic has severely damaged the world economy as well the anime industry it is severely affected. Following several cancellations and delays, for the first time in eleven years, the growth of the sector is declining.

According to a financial report published by the company Teikoku Databank, the anime industry is currently in a stalemate. The total revenue for 2019-2020, collected from more than 270 different studies, amounts to a figure equal to 2.3 billion dollars; an impressive number, but which when compared to the earnings recorded between 2018 and 2019 marks a measly 0.5% more. This figure marks the lowest growth in over ten years.

As for the shows produced, however, the figure is lower compared to the previous year, despite the fact that for the fifth consecutive year more than 300 new titles were produced. The 2019-2020 season is the second in a row in which we see a decline in the number of productions. This year 332 shows were inaugurated, compared to 340 in 2018 and 356 in 2017.

In the report released by Teikoku Databank we can also note that two companies were forced to declare bankruptcy. However, this is encouraging, as 12 companies went bankrupt in 2018.

Although 2019-2020 was a real “annus horribilis”, the financial report is by no means negative and, indeed, suggests a slow recovery.


Damn. This is not good. Hopefully the industry recovers and recovers fast. A world without anime is no world.

I've been a fan of Japanese Anime since I saw football animation way back in the 90's

"Aishite Free Kick" and afterwards Captain Tsubasa.

I rediscovered the Manga and Anime again around 2004 :)

If we had been smart we would have gotten animation into turkish softpower inventory long time ago.

Written stories and told them, and had Japanese animators make the animations.

But Turkey is not ready for that kind. Just as how we were shitty with dizi's /teleseries until we got into the 2000's

We could have told our side of the stories through animations from ww1 until now. Now there are so many choices that our stories would drown in the sea of animation.

Seriously I hate Turkish sitcoms but they help with soft power and they bring in money as people around the world tune in to watch. It helps us a lot.

Well, too many commercials and too long episodes and too much resume was very bad moves.

But the Netflix produced content are fixing length and more in style with what western tv series has "indoctrinated" ppl to watch.

just as MS Outlook has indoctrinated ppl to plan their meetings in ½-1 hour schedules

Anyway, all is good we need more of this kind of softpower to promote Türkiye brand.
