The world-class anime series like Sailor Moon, One Peace or Pokémon have brought in more than $ 19 billion a year in revenue for the industry in the period 2002-2017.

However, the strong development of the Japanese anime industry hiding hidden reality is worrisome: many animators behind the magic attraction on the screen are empty. They face working conditions that can lead to exhaustion and even suicide.

However, the strong development of the Japanese anime industry is hiding the worrisome reality. Many animators behind the magic attraction on the screen are empty. They face working conditions that can lead to exhaustion and even suicide.

Shingo Adachi, a famous Japanese painter, said the shortage of manpower in this industry is a serious problem today. He said the lack of talent is a serious problem going on. With nearly 200 animated TV series produced in Japan every year, there are not enough skilled animators to make such a large number of movies. Instead, studios must rely on freelance artists, they are paid according to the product, not the monthly salary. Because passion they are willing to accept cheap pay.

The intermediate artists are paid about 200 yen for each picture. This rate of pay is not bad if every artist can draw 200 drawings a day, but every anime drawing can take more than an hour. That’s not to mention paying attention to other details that must be changed when the movie is shown in Western countries, such as food, architecture, landscapes.

In addition, conditions for working in the anime industry are also extremely stressful. Anime artists often fall asleep at their desks because of exhaustion. Henry Thurlow, an American anime painter who lives and works in Japan, said he had been hospitalized many times because he sat on his desk for too long.

Madhouse’s film studio, based in Tokyo, was recently accused of violating labor laws because it forced employees to work nearly 400 hours a month and for 37 consecutive days, without a day off. The suicide of a male anime artist in 2014 in Japan was considered due to work pressure after investigators found that he had worked more than 600 hours in the month before committing suicide.
