Me+Anime= watching on the sideline.
I'll leave anime in the hands of people who are actually capable and creative and have the drive and passion.
I only have the drive & passion to watch anime once it's complete.

I imagine the simplest way to break into the business (unless you are interested in being some invisible cog in some corporation) is probably to become a gensaku-sha with some art skill or a manga-ka with some writing skill and team-up 50/50 with each other to produce your own independent/original (non-derivative/non-porno) print-on-demand or digital dojinshi together. You could even team up with a few people like CLAMP. It seems to me that if you gained enough of a fanbase (thousands of readers) or awards and had good direct sales you would probably be contacted by a publisher to carry your work. I suspect that the general problem is that you need to have extremely effective marketing, work extremely hard and be (or have the will to become) extremely good in order to succeed this way.

Personally, I am a firm believer that unless you're a voice actor for dubs, Americans shouldn't really be involved in the anime-making process. It just seems so lame to me. I've seen some "animes" and "mangas" made by Americans, and it just isn't the same. Not to mention that it's completely unrealistic to think that you'll get anywhere in the anime world unless you're Japanese.

I agree, although there are exceptions like Kurokami which was a manga (later turned into an anime) written by a korean manhwa team if your goal is to work in the corporate Japanese anime industry you almost certainly have to be Japanese (from what I hear Japan is not a big fan of immigrant workers). it makes more sense to try to be a successful comic artist or animator primarily in your own country (and if its good fans from other countries will find you).

Not being able to work in Japan, however, should not affect someone's aspirations to create manga-style or anime-style works. There are anime-like series such as (North American) Avatar: The Last Airbender or (North American) Teen Titans or (European) Totally Spies! and (European) W.I.T.C.H. They may not compare to the best anime, but they are o.k. when compared to the average anime in the same genres. The country of origin is not really as important anymore to the visual style when it comes to graphic-novels or animation because alot of the most successful manga and anime elements are being adopted worldwide, Japan is still producing most of the interesting stuff (primarily because it is producing, by far, most of the stuff period) but Europe and North America are also producing good stuff as well and with the internet it is possible for an artist or writer to reach a worldwide audience (and form a significant fanbase) easily.
