Manga growth continues, but anime market is flat

ICv2 notes that while the North American manga market continued its "robust growth" in 2004 -- an estimated $110 million to $140 million, up from $90 to $110 million in 2003 -- the anime market remained relatively flat, at an estimated $500 million to $550 million.

The information is reported in ICv2 Retailers Guide to Anime/Manga #9, which was released this week.
