If you mean Japanese anime companies as in anime studios like Sunrise, Gonzo, Toei, J-C Staff, A-1 Picture and such, then don't bother. They don't make enought to even finance their own works, and they can only afford minimum wage salary on their staff and employees. An average Japanese animator these days is earning $2.00 US per anime cel drawing, often working overtime without pay, and is too old and unskilled to work at another work field. The current anime studio work force is so limited, the anime studios had to outsource their works to other anime workshops outside of Japan in order to maintain their current production volumes.

Company like Square Enix is a publishing company, a part of the corporate sponsors that sponsor advertising projects for their anime related merchandises. They are the ones that hold copyrights on all of the original ideas and designs in all original adaptation anime series, which they would subcontract the ideas and designs to anime studios to make cheap animated advertisements, what most anime fans these days preferred as anime, to broadcast on Japanese TV network.

No, but I'm going to Japan in about 4 years to do a course there. Perhaps I'll consider to work there.

The only thing I'd be willing to do is help them spell and correctly pronounce English words.

And be the voice actress for random animals. I'm awesome at mooing, its true.

No, it requires a big amount of time to study Japanese simply to go over to Japan and try to get a job in the anime industry. While it can earn you some, and I say some money; probabilities are against you. Basically because you would be a foreigner trying to get a job in a country where many of their citizens, that are actually more than just 'many' apply every day to get a job, try and try to stand out of the bunch of the many mangakas, artist or whatever. What could possibly make you think that anime studios are going to select you, a foreigner for a place in the job and not one of the Japanese people?

Yeah all the time... but it's impossible for me... ehheh

It's rather obvious, actually. Their new bold move by capitalizing the PS3 store market is nothing but a stroke of genius. But most people are just too misinformed by lies and misconceptions, told by those who act like presto intellects with false claims made without facts nor reasoning.

Not only because the job market in Japan is very competitive among themselves, thus reduce your chance to obtain a working VISA, But most Japanese anime studios are just doing their best to break even in a saturated Japanese anime DVD market. They're underpaid by doing animated advertisements for corporate sponsors, and they can't earn the rest back from their DVD sales, either. This puts studio and its parent company like Gonzo and GDH in a operating loss of US$32.6 million, forcing GDH to be bought out by Japanese investment company Iwakaze Capital KK, to prevent itself from bankrupt.
