Who's "we"?

People can hardly wait on it to get through the RoF arc as it, I can't see them tolerating twice the wait.

There are no animators available to suddenly start doubling the length of episodes aired, especially not for a TV series that doesn't bring in one-of-a-kind ratings.
Why do they even animate that many different anime shows each year? I mean who actually watches all that stuff? 156 different anime shows comes out in a single year and that's considered, "little?"

I would consider 50 different anime a year to be "a lot," but 150+ is mind boggling.
A lot of people. This is Japan, where adults get cartoons made for them, too...because they actually make it somewhat financially responsible to produce.

Dragon Ball fandom on the Internet has proven to be pretty sheltered in this regard, surprisingly. "You mean they make cartoons other than DBZ?!" is something I seem to hear all the time...which is just baffling. I guess this is what happens when the 'majority of Dragon Ball fans' aren't actually animation or comics fans.

Terrible trash that Sailor Moon Crystal was, cutting the number of episodes that need to air down in half would help the production...assuming the staff wasn't also cut in half. Then again, both have shitty character designs nobody was really allowed to deviate from much, so who knows if that would help.

Of course, there's a better chance of the production staff being doubled than Dragon Ball Super going twice-monthly.

EDIT: Wow, I had no idea you were visiting here, veemonjosh.
