NEW YORK, NY – Multi-billionaires from both sides of the political spectrum have come together to defend Aniplex of America’s anime pricing scheme.
In an open letter to the New York Times, Charles and David Koch and George Soros – who are famous for bankrolling numerous organizations, politicians, and causes on both sides of the political spectrum – bemoaned the public outrage over the price of anime released by Aniplex, most recently their Kill la Kill Blu-ray collection.
“We don’t really see the big deal,” said the authors, whose combined fortune is estimated at upwards of $125 billion. “People should support the industry. You think we like the fact that a Ferrari Enzo costs $5 million? We don’t, but we’ll be damned if that stops us from buying five of them!”
In a rare show of global solidarity, the open letter was also signed by Mexican businessman Calros Slim Helu ($78 billion), Chinese magnate Li Ka-shing ($34.6 billion), Indian tycoon Mukesh Ambani ($23.8 billion), and Abu-Dhabi president Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al-Nahyan ($23 billion).
