Sorry that wasn't the narrative I'm saying. Nowhere did I imply they buy but rather they stream it. Did you not read the bolded part. Do something about your reading comprehension.Economy statistics shows that legal streaming help anime industry not pirating. Baseless implications? Go read the report by Japan where they said China legitimate streaming help improve anime industry.


Actually that's the exact narrative you're saying. Kind of hilarious, I mention streaming, and you say you weren't talking about streaming. I mention buying, and you say you were talking about streaming. Pathetic how you cant even keep your stories straight. Baseless implications? Yes. Go read the report where Japan is experiencing continued growth in anime and manga sales despite piracy.

Holy fuck it's like I'm having a conversation with Donald Trump.


Where did I say I wasn't talking about streaming? The growth is because of legitimate streaming in China, nowhere did they say pirating.Take out the legitimate streaming in China or other overseas anime industry won't grow.

Check my reading comprehension? How about just stop making baseless implications and then twist your own words?

"Chinese are more supportive of anime instead of pirating". Where is your basis for that? Because their sales rise they don't pirate? China has over a billion people. If 100 thousand buy anime and 400 million pirate it, it doesn't make Chinese people "more supportive", it just means enough people bought it to turn a profit. And that's exactly what you were implying. Don't act like that wasn't the exact narrative you were trying to spin; that piracy is killing anime. That's not the case in Japan, and it's not the case in China. And the economics statistics show it.

Again where in there does it say that piracy is noticeably crippling the industry? Streaming service numbers up =/= less piracy. Didn't realize that wasn't common sense.

The Chinese market is peculiar. Many anime are legally free. The online streaming platforms (e.g. Tencent, Iqiyi) are burning money to expand the market and foster purchasing habit. They are still exploring different business models. Anime monetize by some of the following: subscription, advertisement, product placement, adaptation into games and TV dramas, etc.

Chinese people actually support it instead of piracy.

Since 2014, the AJA has attributed the growth in the market to success in the sales of streaming rights to China, a trend that has not changed in 2016.

I would like to watch the Chinese dub of this series

The first season has some merits but also significant flaws. The second season has improved greatly so far with some minor flaws.

The second season covers a tournament arc with a great ensemble cast.

The manga is very popular and well rated in China. The anime, with all the criticism it got, still became the 4th most popular Chinese anime on bilibili (Chinese streaming site).

It's mainly for domestic consumption. Success in oversea markets is desirable but not crucial.

The Japanese release will be 12 episodes. The Chinese release will go beyond that and have at least two cours.

The 2nd season of this is already streaming on bilibili and i heard there are significant improvements so good news for the for the ppl that watched S1.

I did not watch the first season, but was it successful enough for its?

Nope, successful chinese anime would be like King's Avatar, well known and popular, also this article points out the reason why it isn't popular.

FYI, Raten Daishou is when only Luotian Dajiao (Chinese) is taken from Fengqi Yunyong, Luotian Dajiao and reads in Japanese.
