jesus christ, man. you love anime so much youre willing to move to germany and not have a family? i mean... whatever floats your boat. if you're willing to do all that, you might as well just work part time and rent a cheap apartment.

Thanks for your answers!. What about working at a library?, maybe there you can get to read lots of manga and books you like?.


As someone who works in the library, I can say if you want free time, it's probably not the job for you. When I'm not working on daily tasks like circulation and reshelving, I'm working on longer term projects (and have a whole other list I haven't had a chance to start), and I work in a small library that has maybe half a dozen people coming in to check out books each day.

Get tenure at a university. Granted it'd be hard work for a while but the rewards are great.

Worked graveyard shift at hotel -- earned $8/hour to do actual work for about 1-4 (usually about 2) hours, and watch anime/read/study for whatever was left of my 8 hour shift. It was nice.


I get paid 11.50/hr working at hotel front desk, with majority of my shift down time. I watch tons of anime, and since it's just me. I'd even play PC games xD.

working graveyard shift/ night audit is just that much more free time. almost full 8hrs xD


..But depending in the area you work in, working at a hotel can have it's dangers. (The type of "shady" and downright Mean clientel")

Work for the security at a big company like Hasbro. I know the security there spend the whole day sitting at a computer waiting for something to happen, but there're not so many crazy people to assault a boring place with a bunch of camera everywhere.

That's the best job to watch anime and be relax.

I have heard some security jobs, and hotel/reception jobs is the best. If you're lazy

Haha my job is perfect for this. I work overnights at a residential facility. After the residents go to sleep around 10 or 11 then the rest of the night until 6am is basically doing whatever we want. My coworkers all watch TV and complain of boredom while I will watch anime on my phone or laptop, if I bring it. It's barely worth it though because working with the residents is so mentally exhausting, but I really only have to be "on" for about 20 hours a week.

It's a conspiracy! Japan is planning to make the world childless and break its balance by convincing everybody to take part-time jobs. All this with anime/manga/eroge/??!

Well, if you want lots of free time, I would suggest taking a job that requires little work and can slack off on (not that that's the right thing to do) or find one you don't have to work often. I've heard firefighters work in shifts of three days on, three days off for jobs, and they get paid pretty well, so that may be an idea for you. Also, anything that is more of at working at home job (like writer) could be beneficial. Also, if you want all of your free time lumped together, maybe try being a teacher and getting a full summer off.

It really depends on how far you are willing to go for your anime. Moving to Germany or not have a family may seem like interesting things to give up, but have your considered giving up a warm house or showers more than twice a week? I technically possible to basically live homeless and only make enough money for food and your computer. Where I live, there are tons of 24-7 restaurants that have free internet, and you could just switch between ever once in a while. It really depends how far you want to go.

Finally, have you considered a job in the anime/manga industry? You may not have tons of time for personal anime watching, but you would rather be immersed in the newest coming out, or even be making it yourself. If you truly love anime and think you would enjoy making it, then you might you enjoy that more.

Just remember, do something you will love. If you really enjoy doing something, it no long feels like a job. You will be much happy in the long run if you do something your passionate about than doing something boring and unfulfilling.
