The author of the 'What killed the American anime industry' was right, but also didn't take into account the huge switch from physical media (remember entire aisles of anime at Borders or Best Buy anybody?) to streaming media which is where people are going to get their -entirely legal- fix. Who needs the anime rental shop when Crunchyroll, etc. are available in high def through your Playstation?

Don't get me wrong, in my house we have a monster anime collection of both old and new titles, but increasingly we're screening them first via streaming and then buying the ones we know we want to re-watch from specialty vendors.

That was touched on the comments, but yeah. It's a new world order.
