Re: Tenth Planet Episode 4 will be animated for DVD
The problem is animation is just so insanely expensive, even the stuff on the cheaper end with minimal actual animation that they're using here. The more episodes that need doing, the lesser the likelihood they would see that money back.
The higher quality stuff that Japanese studios like madhouse or toei put out would cost over £100,000 per episode, which there's not a hope in hell they'd ever recoup from the dvds.
Satisfying my desires as a fan is a higher priority than their profits, but I might not be objective on this.
