ok ok, now the japanese're making a bill, that will permit any outsider
or in their word autosaida, work in anything including in anime, or publishing manga.

so Anime is great, the animation, the storyboarding, etc, etc.
and been a part of the team, and going to the motion, hell shiro bakko
show it better. awesome anime.

but gonna be hater here, but i rather make my own manga,
why? independeces, make my own story, draw it,
my own way, choose the type manga genre i want.
be my own boss rather been a salad man

so is worth, for me.

How about you, what kind job ye go for there japan?
anime or my way Mangaska 4life, is worth it again.

and as always thank for being awesome.

Neither.

Have you read the Bakuman manga or watched the Bakuman anime?

That line of work is too tough. I'd just stick to engineering.

Same. I really wouldn't want any career in Japan. I'm married to my job as it is, and it's my understanding that the work environment over there is even worse.

I would go for a job in photonics... Especially at Hamamatsu Photonics.

I don't want a job in anime or manga. That's just a hobby lol.

These are very much starving artist jobs. While I appreciate the product being produced it's an unfortunate reality that there isn't money in it for the average worker in those fields. I doubt I would be happy with it as a profession compared to a hobby. In fact John Carmack said something similar about video game development: if you love video games don't get into dev - you'll never be able to enjoy them the same way again.

Well I'm a Park Ranger in the U.S., so I'd probably attempt to get a job in a similar field in Japan, if they have it. I also have a lot of training in wildfire fighting and residential/commercial firefighting, as well as EMS training and triage, so I could always try that field as well as a first responder/firefighter. I also had to go through police training for the Park Ranger job, so there's that, too.

I've actually been looking at moving out of the States after I finish my next degree. The language barrier is a huge consideration, though.

If I was an artist I'd rather work on manga for a lot of the same reasons you talked about. The independence would be nice. I also would enjoy creating something myself and working on an anime sounds tedious. At least with Manga you can see the results of your efforts with each panel compared to taking who knows how long before you can see the actual animation. On the other hand it would be cool to be an animator and to have your named attached to something people really love. Imagine having your name on the credits of Steins Gate or something. Both are pretty cool.

You do not want a "carreer" in either. Employment in manga or in anime production has opened up to foreigners because the Japanese simply don't want to do it anymore.
The turnover in that industry is enormous.

You'll have to work rediculous hours to make the even more rediculous deadlines, the pay sucks and you're treated like garbage.
It is not a fun job.

I can tell this is true from personal experience, I once took a voluntary position as subtitle quality checker for a local anime distributer (Beez/Bandai). After having done a couple of series it made me stop watching anime for two whole years, and even though the I have series I worked on in my private collection, I can't bring myself to watch them again, ever, which is sad because they were quite brilliant titles.

Neither. If I would have to move to Japan I wouldn't chose another job. Maybe I wouldn't be a freelancer anymore but that's it.

don't have a pref for either one.

cuz in either one, i'll be the writer. if such an opportunity ever comes my way, i'm very hands-on when it comes to these stuffs, i like to voice my inputs on music selection, scenes, actors etc....

i have so many visions in my head; it's just waiting to explode... if only i had a chance to make it come to life.

voice acting would be really cool, but like everyone is saying it would probably take the pleasure out of watching anime

people in the anime/manga industry earn less than people flipping burgers at McDonalds.
i like anime/manga, but earning what, 5 bucks or so an hour is simply not worth.
notthaticandrawanyways

edit: if i had to, then i'd go with Executive Producer.

Neither. They do not make a lot money over there like here in the States. I would be an archaeologist over there. Money good and you are treated with respect most of the time.
