Animation may be generally less expensive to produce in relation to live-action, especially for stories with significant science fiction or fantasy elements which require heavy special effects work, that does not mean it's cheap. For each show that airs, there are a number or corporations that each invest a significant chunk of the budget.
The Anime Economy series of articles, written by Justin Sevakis, will give you general idea of what goes into producing a late night anime, from pre-planning to international licensing and distribution.
If you use programs like Flash or Toonboom and know some talented people that will work for peanuts, you might be able to make a decent indie animation project without spending millions of dollars. XD
Best of luck.
