KyoAni As A Content Creator?

Notice some trends starting to change with what KyoAni produced since 2009?

Before this, what they produced were based on stories from other studios/writers/companies (K-On!, Lucky Star, FMP, Haruhi, Nichijou). Now? Chuunibyou, Tamako Market, and now Free! are all shows they either created from whole cloth, or are based on mangas or light novels they bought the rights to continue developing under their name.

KyoAni wants to become a content creator. This blog post explains it in more detail: . The equation for how this studio produces content is changing. What does this mean for the fans? Obviously, it means there is less of a chance that we'll get another Lucky Star season or Haruhi season or FMP season. It also means they're trying to break off of their collaboration with Kadokawa Studios/Shoten, which also had tied to BANDAI Entertainment, which, as you are aware, stopped licensing anime in the USA! No wonder the Lucky Star spin-off was given to Ordet instead!

What are your thoughts on this?
I am a fan of the dub. It was the dub that introduced me to Lucky Star, and is great. Just to let you members know this beforehand.
