Something about animation peripheral products
February 22, 2013 11:42am CST
I am not sure about other country, but in mine, the peripheral products of animation (and comics+novels) are extremely expensive compare to our daily expenses. I know exclusive stuff should cost higher, and I don't mind "donating" some money to my favorite anime. However, I am an adult who makes my own ends meet, and it start to become a problem among my teenager students. I think they spend too much on these things, and they are spending their parents...... Although it is a good time to teach my younger generation how to use money wisely, I also start to think about the high profit of animation peripheral products. If their main customers are those who lives on their parents, they should somehow think about low down their price; otherwise, the culture of anime will become harder accepted.
