Struggles in the Animation Industry: A Shocking Reality


Animation Industry is very big. As big as 270 billion USD. You may have seen at least one cartoon or 2D/3D animations in your life. You may have seen Doraemon, Oggy and the Cockroaches or maybe other cartoons like Chhota Bheem.

Well, for your kind information, do you who is the world leader in this animation industry? It is Japan. Shinchan, Doraemon, and other animes you just name it, they all come from this island nation.

If we follow the data, the animation industry is a growing business. Every year it just breaks the record of earnings. But, there are also dark sides, sufferings, and a term like “Karoshi” with that.

Let's see what are the shocking realities of the animation industry -

1. It Is Tough and Harsh for Health

The reason why the “Karoshi” term used here is just because of that. This term is officially recognized by the Japanese government as a disease of overworking.

The animation is a really hard task. It can takes days to make a 5 mins animation video with clarity. As the Japanese anime industry is very popular in providing high-quality anime, many animators spend more than half of the day for months in the office to get this done.

You can just pick out any anime, most popular of them Shingeki no Kyojin, you can just see the clarity of every scene, it is amazing. 

That’s not only tough but also harsh for the health of the animators. Most of the animators suffer from depression and overwork. The next point will shock you more.

2. They Work More but Often Paid Less

In contrast to their work, the animator is paid less. Talking about the starting package of the animator in India, it starts from 1.2 lacs INR only.

And around the world, it is the same everywhere. Maybe even worse in Japan, as there is a high demand for that. In Japan, one animation drawing could give you $2 but it takes hours to finish just one drawing.

Everywhere, every animator has the same complaint, they are not paid according to their work. They work more and more to finish one scene and then the next scene arrives.

3. Increasing Demands and Short Schedule

If you observe the animation world, you will come to know how popular it is around the world. Unlike India where only a few 2D shows run, in the US and mostly in the East Asian region, this Industry has its fandoms.

Well, most of the Japanese animes are banned in India but here also you will find somebody who watches those behind the doors. In short, there is a huge demand for animation. Most of these shows are aired on a scheduled basis, which gradually increases the burden on already overworked animators.

Surprisingly enough, there is a term called a slave contract where an animator has to complete all the scenes, then he gets paid. This type of contract just chained the animator to work until it gets finished.

Animes have a very tight and packed schedule, and more than 200 shows aired in Japan alone.

4. Indefinite Struggles

Many problems of the anime industry are discussed above, but there are many many indirect negative effects on the individual who works in these industries. Mostly animators suffer the most.

Common problems faced by those are -

  • Sleep Deprivation
  • Depression
  • Health Issues due to improper Nutrition Intake
  • Fewer Relationships and Social Engagements
  • Poor Work-life balance

And there are many more.


In conclusion, no matter how much you enjoyed Doraemon or Shinchan and worshiped different anime shows, there is always a dark reality behind the making of these high-quality animations.

It is also the sad reality that everyone knows the names of different animations shows but very few of them know the hero behind this art which triggers childhood memories inside you. 

“Animation is an Art everyone knows about, but most of the time Artists are unknown and invisible to the world”.

  2. Gratitude and love over everything, my joyful experience about HACK VANISH CREDIT SPECIALIST might be of help to someone. Before the coronavirus pandemic, I had criminal Judgments, few evictions, and missed / late payment which negatively impacted my credit score down to 487 and left me in difficult financial situation, as a single mum of 3, I needed a loan to keep the family running after I lost my husband as a result of COVID-19, all hope were lost, until Mr. Kannan and Mrs. Olivia referred me to HACK VANISH, a credit genius who was very helpful in fixing my report after I reached out to him via his contact details; Email: hackvanish (At) gmail (Dot) com and Phone: +1(650) 499 5548, I carefully followed his protocols, throughout the process which lasted for about 6 days, I felt so involved because he maintained an open line of communication till I got my FICO score restored to 796, currently my loan application has been approved, I can now give my kids better life. If you need to hire a hacker, HACK VANISH is highly recommended.

  3. Went through a divorce and found out that my X trashed my credit. In December when I took back my financial life, I was ruined. I discovered my FICO score was at 533, all account was late, over limit, mostly charge offs. Debt was worth $60k. Immediately I put a plan of action on how to fix my credit, because I needed a car for myself. But with my current credit score then I won’t get approved due to the charge offs and debts coupled with low credit score which appeared in my credit report. Thanks to ROOTKITS CREDIT SPECIALIST who was there for me when I needed them the most. After when I spoke with my dad I explained my situation to him, he introduced me to rootkits credit specialist, immediately I contacted them via: also texted on +1 760 474 3440. I got replied few minutes and I explained myself and they promised to get job done. Within 5days my credit score changed, charge offs were deleted from my report, all debt cleared and my credit score was raised to 815 across the 3 credit bureaus. My car loan has been approved, I’m super excited to jump into my 2019 Mazda CX-5 car.

  4. I got married last year my husband and I are planning on getting a new house but our credit scores were low and I also had a lot of credit card debts. I spoke to a friend about it who happens to be a tech guy and he refers me to TROVIAN CREDIT REPAIR. I contacted him and he helped my husband and I raised our credit scores to 800 and he also helped me clear my credit card debts with other hard inquires he noticed. He is the best.

    Hello ! My name is Sarah O’Brian, I am a chartered accountant and mother of four from Michigan. Some time ago I decided to invest in cryptocurrency. I invested exactly $50,000 for a start with a fake broker and was made to believe that my investment had grown from my initial deposit of $50,000 to $250,700. This felt so good as the investment grew rapidly in just a few weeks. When it was time to take my profit, my withdrawal request was denied. Later on after much vain efforts,i realized that I might never get my money back.
    I discovered that i had been a victim of cryptocurrency scam.

    My boss at work noticed how frustrated I was so I had to open up to him about my encounter with scammers. He linked me up with Recovery Precinct, so I looked up their website and filled the contact form. They responded Swiftly and requested for details of the fraud.
    To my greatest surprise, my lost funds was recovered directly to my wallet address in less than 24hours. I don’t know how they did it but it was amazing.

    Recovery Precinct is a financial regulator, private investigation and fund recovery body. They warned that these types of scams involving bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies or fake merchants are becoming common lately and targeted victims come from different parts of the world.

    I am sharing this to save someone out there from a lifetime disaster.

  7. My gratitude goes out to the entire team of Raylink Cyber services. Someone left information (RAYLINKCYBERSERVICES@GMAIL.COM) under a comment section on helping to repair credit.

They cleaned my credit records and they boosted my credit score within just few days of contacting them without charging much. They also referred me to their website.

  9. As a student borrower at texas university , about 200 point credit score dropped because of incorrect information reported by a student loan servicer, the servicer said it wasn't reporting flawed information and referred me to the credit bureaus .
    The point drop in my credit score prevented me from taking steps like moving and buying a car .
    But no one seems to help fix it even when I tried so hard to rebuild it.
    Luckily a student friend at my school that went through similar issues confidently referred me to NEWHORIZONCREDIT1ATGMAILdotCOM .
    Now the rest is history .

  10. Coming in contact with XAP Credit Solution remains my best decision this year. My report was so bad that I couldn't get a place of my own. i got evicted an stayed in a motel for months with my family, you can imagine the financial implication; but as soon as I communicated with XAPCREDITSOLUTION@ GMAIL. COM he told me all I will need to do, which I didn't hesitate to do. In less than 5days eviction, DMV and a few other derogatory things were taken off my report and my score that was in the 500s increased to 800s. This sounds like magic right? Yes, XAP made it happen. Do well to contact XAP for a quick and reliable credit fix.

  11. Special thanks to HACK VANISH, a professional hacker I’ve been hiring for the past 2 years because, I find him to be an outstanding hacker who has aided me in various hacking related issues, ranging from fixing my poor FICO credit score of about 437 TransUnion, 462 Equifax to 802 plus excellent score, tracking my cheating husband’s phone and currently has helped me recover my lost crypto funds from an online scam investment I recently ventured into, I must confess he is the best, quite brilliant, ever since I discovered him through a positive review I saw on Wallet Hub and reached out to him via Email: Hackvanish @ Gmail. com, and Phone: +1(747) 293-8514, to which he responded in less than 10mins, I have never regretted working with him, he’s been quite helpful and highly efficient.

  12. I want to express how grateful I am to CYBERCRDITGURU a credible and reliable hacker who helped recovered the $45,000 I lost to scammers online and also hacked into my cheating husband’s mobile phone and social media accounts.

    I invested a total of$95,000.00USD worth of Bitcoin with an online company who does trading and was guaranteed a payout of 25% a week. They ended up shutting down their company website but their website was still running. So I could still see my dashboard at that time and instead of paying weekly they ended up compounding my money. It ended up compounding to$179, 000USD so I requested for a withdrawal which was declined before they shutdown their website, I complained to my colleague at work who directed me about this recovery expert, Mr. Morris Gray, that helped him, I contacted him immediately, what surprised me most, was that I recovered my money that same week. You can contact him on his email at { MorrisGray830 at Gmail Dot com } and he will assist you on the steps to recover your invested funds.
    Just trying to help those who where scammed just the way I was too.

  17. Once I got off the phone with the broker (Mr. John Michael) from HASHFLARE I was convinced they were the real deal. What strikes me the most about them was the profit I was able to make in the short term. I eventually needed money to attend to an urgent financial situation only for HASHFLARE to deny my withdrawal request after my contract with them expired already and then went on maintenance indefinitely. I became so worried that I had to take more loans to attend to my needs. I was stuck waiting for HASHFLARE’s approval to make withdrawals but all to no avail. They stopped responding to my emails and other forms of correspondence. Checking online to see if this was normal because I got confused then I saw so many negative reviews of HASHFLARE. I knew for a fact I have been scammed. I deposited a total of 226k euros. I was desperately in need of help and did an intensive search on wealth recovery companies. After I was able to sieve out a number of recovery companies with no URLs, I decided to carry on with GLOBALASSETRECOUP.COM after seeing reviews that the company helped recovered monies lost to fraudulent companies and is based in the metropolitan city of NY. A forensic analysis of my dealings with HASHFLARE was carried out and my claim was found to be legitimate. I got 85% of my money back through this international wealth recovery company. Without a doubt, HASHFLARE & TRADENIX are scam firms and they do not have your interests at heart. Send a mail to contact AT globalassetrecoup. c om if you are a victim of fraud now!
