Whither anime?

Roland Kelts writes on how a group of major anime producers will boycott the Tokyo Anime Fair and start their own in Chiba (the neighbouring prefecture to Tokyo) in protest at Tokyo Governor Ishihara's success with his local anime/manga bill. Isn't it a strange governor who shrugs at the loss of a major international promotion of Japanese industry on his turf? Roland also mentions a Japanese anime creator who claims the bubble has burst even within Japan.
