Hey guys!

Recently I did some work for Crunchyroll for one of their booths and I was so inspired. I kept thinking about different ways to be apart of this industry and help it grow. I have felt the need to be apart of a community or starting one. I want to make content or help something that is already established. I thought about either creating a blog, doing reviews or trying to join people who have a similar vision/view to this as I do. I would love to work for Crunchyroll at some point but I know that I should not make it my life dream to do so but I feel that it drives me to be active and apart of the anime community.

Thoughts?

I know this kind of falls under advice as well but I feel that this category has a better fit.

Thanks for viewing my post and look forward to a response:)

I remember I once helped out ANN with one of their articles...I know there are certain jobs you can get if you're in a certain place and they're asking for people. Normally on websites, there's a Contact or Jobs section which'll help you do so. If you mean as an animator/mangaka etc., head to Japan and hunt around.

There are a lot of anime blogs floating around the 'net which would be more than happy to have your help. Most are anime reviewers, but there's also other kinds...or if you can't beat 'em, join 'em! I, at one point, made notes on anime simulcasts based on my own opinions and knowledge of Japanese culture/language but I had to stop because RL.

Or you could learn Japanese and be a Japanese translator, that way you won't be completely jobless when there's none of the jobs you want.

Hopefully this helps.
