Recent years[edit]

On April 26, 2010, Bang Zoom! Entertainment CEO Eric P. Sherman sent an open letter to anime fans via blog GoAnimeTV. In the letter, he stated that the company will most likely stop producing English dubs of anime titles in 2011 if the industry does not start showing improvement. He cited the fansubbing and unlicensed copying of anime content as the primary reason for Geneon Entertainment USA, Urban Vision, Central Park Media, Tokyopop, and ADV Films closing their doors, as well as the January 2009 layoffs at Bandai Entertainment. Sherman also emphasized in the article that "anime is going to die" if fans do not start buying more content from the studios that license shows for distribution.[8][9]
