For too long, creators have been relegated to the passenger's seat in the creation of anime. Business interests - TV broadcasters, toy manufacturers, even pachinko companies & DVD distributors - are largely what has "greenlit" the contents which we've come to love & enjoy. This means: 1) the anime industry is more or less incenticized to churning out uninspired content 2) value capture largely by said business interests 3) many creators are placed in a tough position between a work-for-hire situation vs. building towards what got them here in the first place - to tell stories that inspire them. Web3 (and we) have the potential to invert the relationship such that creators are in the driver's seat. It may seem like a subtle change at first glance, but the implications are profound.
