With Kadokawa planning to produce even more anime per year in the next few years, you can expect the quality of anime to drop, with more animators getting overworked to catch up to tight schedules. 1/?
This also means that studios will start relying even more on foreign freelance animators. So I will say this now: It is not hard to get offered to do anime work anymore, and that is not a good thing. 2/?
You'll start seeing studios hire very inexperienced animators for big projects, and sometimes even people who are unprepared for it. So to the new aspiring animators, please please please- 3/?
DO NOT take anime work if you don't know anything about japanese notations, and if your draftsmanship is still very unstable or lack proper foundation. You will put even more burden on already tight schedules- 4/?
When the other people working down the line like directors and second key animators have to fix or even redo everything. Keep this in mind: Your goal shouldn't be to get anime work, but instead, aim to be a competent animator before that. 5/?
Don't use work as your testing grounds with the thought of "this is a once in a lifetime chance, if I don't take it now I won't get another chance", with how high the demand is for animators in the anime industry, there WILL be a second chance. 6/?
When you screw yourself and the other staff over in your first job due to your incompetence, it will damage your self esteem even more and also potentially get yourself blacklisted by PAs, so it is not great for both sides. So, take work when you really are prepared. 7/?
I'll end my rant here. Thanks for taking your time to read this.
