The workers who make the Japanese shows the world is binge-watching can earn as little as $200 a month. Many wonder how much longer they can endure it.

Some background on what goes on in the business.

On a side note, kinda sad crowdfunded Anime never really took off (I funded one of the first large ones, but the result was quite disappointing). That would be a way for indie Anime studios to make a bigger cut of the sales, as they would be less dependent on the production committees.

Of course looking at the Indie games industry (that did that), it isn’t really so clear cut and there are also still plenty of Indie game devs that mostly self-exploit :-/

Not sure how the income is distributed, but Studio Trigger has a Patreon that offers occasional streams and doodles that mostly seems like it’s a bonus from the studios reputation, in addition to whatever pittance they’re granted from publishers.

Without reading, I hazard a guess towards most animation is done by the lowest bidder.

Also seems like a good reason to post this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-ReoBPl4mM

Anime is hand-drawn and computer animation originating from Japan.

Anime; the one thing that gets us closer to each other.
