This is some really great news. Even ignoring the obvious benefits of general inclusiveness that thos brings, it will hopefully get more of our own countrymen interested in our hobby and if not, then we'll still be most likely getting more awesome animators from outside Japan working on anime.

As long as they allow real workers and not jobless savages who rather push their own culture then accept the one that they currently live in. (cough germany cough nice one cough dumbass cough)

However, if they start inviting people with unhealthy diet and exercise cultures.... well, lets just pray they don't repeal the matabo laws for whatever stupid excuse they got for being a fatass.

Stay adamant japan. Don't change your culture to bend to others. Besides, it's one of the best pokemon natures:P

Not surprised, considering people have basically stopped having children over there, its the only way to keep their economy from collapsing.

Good news for them but really need to start giving their workforce more incentives to take days off from work (and perhaps shorter hours?) I'd probably make more money at a desk job working for an American company in Japan instead of using my college degree to work long hours in a hospital there. Not to mention I'd have to pass the licensure exam in Japan when I'm a long way to even pass the JLPT N1.

I hope the people who go there to work end up finding something they love to do. Also, maybe Japan can make getting the temporary resident permit a little less of a hassle to acquire because from what I've heard, it can be a pain in the ass.

It's all economics. With a culture that strongly disapproves of working mothers and intense pressures to stay at work regardless of work being done there is an inevitable decline of population. While it is true wealthy societies in general see a decreasing birth rate, even in the US (increasing population in the US is accounted for mostly by immigration and immigrant births), Japan has exacerbated this process.

Increasing immigration is one solution, but they need to socially reform as well. Maybe the younger generations will take that task on.

So Japan have very huge successful economy even with heavy restriction against foreign workers? The Capitalists claim that all nations should allow more foreign workers because it benefit the narrow interest of business; it is the same reason why the Allies should not fight against the Axis in WW2.

Wow, that's actually pretty cool, I heard the original ways for a foreigner to work in Japan were really tough.

The problem isn't a lack of foreign works in Japan... the problem is they get overworked.

Filipino foreign workers get heavily overworked, and one man actually died from exhaustion last year. The government also had to pass a law in their parliament that specifically labeled racism towards Koreans as a hate crime; prior to this legislation being passed, a lot of Koreans turned to the infamous organized crime syndicate, the Yakuza, for protection. A lot of the different clan's members are of Korean ethnicity.
