I was thinking about it and I only really know how anime was made in the past before they did it on computers. How exactly is anime done now with computers is my question. How is it drawn and animated? How would an individual make it without one of those cookie cutter programs meant for people to mess around. Im talking like professional stuff not flash based stuff.

pretty much the same way as the old days. Computer screens and wacom tablets replace paper.

Storyboards still go on the walls, producers still take credit for everyone else's hard work, animators work like slaves chained to the desk, in-betweeners sit on the floor and work even harder for table scraps.

Surely it must take some amount of magic... or possibly Spiral Power...

This is how anime is made by JC Staff. It's pretty interesting.

I found a few links via Google, but I'm not sure they address your question(s) entirely (though they many answer some). Here we go...

- Anime Production – Detailed Guide to How Anime is Made and The Talent Behind It (circa 2011)
- http://washiblog.wordpress.com/2011/01/18/anime-production-detailed-guide-to-how-anime-is-made-and-the-talent-behind-it/


The process of making an anime is a complex one, with many steps and stages. This chart from AIC’s English website is a good visual overview for what I’ll be discussing...



This video posted by OtakuKoala is excellent. It's about a 1/2 hour. Well worth the watch. By the way... here is the Crunchyroll link to that same video: http://www.crunchyroll.com/media-589806/culture-japan-9

First, you find yourself an otaku. You go, "Hey, otaku! Did you see dat imouto show? Who would you have made best girl?" You then throw him some colored pencils and paper, telling him you will give him a hug pillow of his waifu in exchange for a few chapters of fanfic.

You take the imouto fanfic to Comiket. You work with local Yakuza to obtain the best spot on the show floor, muscling out other peddlers of imouto fanfics. The doors open, and the stench of stale pocky and sweat wafts around the show floor.

You sell all copies of the imouto fanfic. A shady producer for a animation company that is a subsidiary / tax write-off for a global manufacturer of delicious deep-fried fruit pies has been keeping tabs on what has been selling, and offers to produce a show based on "your" work. You make sure to stock up on waifu hug pillows and cast-off figurines for the mangaka.

Thank goodness the mangaka is a hikkimori, that means you don't have to worry about him showing up to the production committee meetings, and makes him less likely to complain about being chained to your basement heater pumping out new volumes of the manga and light novel of the imouto fanfic that has taken the country by storm. At the production committee meeting, you are introduced to the other companies paying for the anime to be made: a record label whose only client is a washed-up Christmas cake who was tossed to the curb after a sex scandal (she was seen sitting next to a guy on a bus, the horror!); a member of the local Yakuza (hell, this just might be half the people in the room); and the manufacturer of waifu hug pillows. This is good: you'll get a good bulk rate, and will be able to keep your mangaka happy.

Next, comes the casting of the seiyuu. You ask if Wakamoto is available to play onii-chan, but the Producer just laughs in your face, his breath stinking of cheap whiskey and Vicks Vapor Rub. Damn you, Producer! Even though the anime is based on "your" work, he has first dibs on the casting couch cuties.

Now, comes production. Producer wrangles up some wandering hobos and promises them some yakisoba buns if they draw some pretty pictures, but he's a lying bastard. He already knows there are only curry buns left.

Now, comes post-production. This comes after the anime has already aired. Gotta make it spiffy for dem Blu-Rays!

The anime sells enough copies to at least keep the Yakuza happy, but you feel unyielding rage when some punkass jerk cons Tokyo Broadcasting Station into airing a fanfic based off of "YOUR!" work, which goes on to become a multi-million dollar franchise.



And that is how anime is made.
