Yes I do. Either a mangaka or anime artist (mainly mangaka though.) And no I don't want to become a mangaka or an anime artist because I watch/read it. I enjoy drawing and sometimes animating. Also my parents want me to become a lawyer...and I don't want to be one XP (no offense to those people who are a lawyer, who are studying to be one, or want to be one)

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?


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.

That's one of the little problems with children in this site, and mainly outside Japan. I believe even if you have the talent there is no way you can become a mangaka or anime artist. Heck, not even a seiyuu. Just like it works for anime companies to import anime products and resources, it also works the same way in a minor scale for people trying to invest a 'dream' in Japan. So it's not just about wanting to go there, people should get real and invest their lives, not just in a dream, but in a possibility.

Its one of those things that as an anime and manga lover I would like to do .... but after thinking about it rationally is kinda stupid to move to another country and having to deal with all the troubling circunstances involved just to get a chance in having a job as a mangaka in japan , it would probably be better to keep it as a side hobby after growing up

I would not want to work at such a stressful job... Same reason I changed from being a CS major...

Also to the OP; If the first thing that comes to mind when you hear Square Enix is anime, there might be something wrong with you.

Yes, I have. Many, MANY times. Most probably as the manga-ka or a seiyu. But I'd have to learn Japanese first . I think the only sentence I know by heart is "Omai ikinari nanisun dayo?!" (Pretty much "What the h*ll are you doing?!" in case I have to scream at my brother. )

As much as I like anime, I'd freakin' hate to work for an anime company. It's not like you'd get a chance to watch anime endlessly, you'd be working your ass off -___- I'll stick to just watching it (:

Think about it. Going to another country to try and have a small change to get a job at an anime company. when there are many jobs here and now that pay much more, have more benefits, and guarantee much more success. Don't waste you breath on a dream when you don't know the facts. Besides, you have a very slim change at a job when your nbot from that country.
