I want to disagree but I'm not entirely sure of what he's stating.

Dude, did you see the picture of him?!? He looks like he had one too many drinks of Sakae before answering this question, lol.

Can't blame you, after reading the article, I'm completely lost.

I can't understand what he is saying. I'm not like the other people who will dismiss things just because they don't want to believe it so since he is an industry veteran, I'm sure he has a good point in there some where but it was probably lost in translation.
Right now I think the Japanese animation and manga studios need to start putting more effort into getting their content into more global markets. There is a large market for anime and manga in every single country that has tv or internet so its just a missed opportunity for them. Right now the majority of those people are enjoying anime and manga through illegal websites because there is almost no other way for them to have access to the content they love in their country.
It would be nice of there was a service where you could read a large library of digital manga on your pc or smart device all in colour with no more than a weeks delay from the Japanese version with the first chapter being free then you pay for the rest.
For anime I would like them stop using these horrible voice actors for most of the anime out there because the local cartoons nowadays has very good dialogue and voice acting.
