Evangelion: “Now in a shiny metal box” Edition

Spotted at Best Buy while on my way back from buying art supplies. Right above it was this, which I considered buying, but passed on. I guess for $44 it was pretty cheap.

You know, thinking back, it probably wasn’t the crumbling industry that killed Geneon, but the fact that they just can’t print money at will. I mean, just look at this! ADV can just keep re-releasing Eva and people will keep buying (if people weren’t buying, why would they keep releasing it?) Same with Funi and their over 9000 releases of DBZ. What bothers me about these companies is that they waste what they have on shit, while Geneon, who couldn’t print free money had to get all the good niche titles that no one bought, and that’s why they crumbled.

This issue of the industry going down has been on my mind for a bit. Why wouldn’t it? Everyone’s talking about it. Once I get time I may write something kind of substantial about this.
