MONEY is the reason animes end up with ONLY 1 season.

Think about it.

If these anime companies were loaded with multiple millions in CASH, we’d have tons of anime shows coming out with 2nd, 3rd and 4th seasons.

Dragon Ball Z Is one example, but that’s only because shows like DBZ make so much money they can afford to do that.

And it doesn’t help that the average anime show costs over 2M+ dollars to produce.

By the way, that doesn’t even factor in:

  • taxes
  • wages
  • marketing
  • promotional materials

Or anything else that’s necessary. And then there’s piracy.

Basically, the anime industry is brutal.
