A few months ago, an animator had expressed all his bitterness towards Japanese animation, which was due to theChina and Netflix influencehe said, "humiliate Japan". However, the land of the dragon has significantly increased the demand for cartoons of the rising sun, which has also created contrasts.

There are a number of factors that are actually helping to reverse the path of anime production from Japan to China, most notably the wage issue. Anyway, recently director and screenwriter, Shinji Takamatsu, shared his thoughts on the subject on Twitter:

"Today's production time for anime is so long that it's hard to predict when the climax of the process will come. In the past, the hardest part was when the series was already on air. Now that doesn't happen anymore. This is on the increase the series production with all the already beautiful episodes that ended, even if this is due to the strict verification process from china This requires a full job at least three months before it airs. In a situation where it is becoming increasingly difficult to obtain economic resources within Japan, sales overseas are now vital.""

Then the director adds again:

""Yesterday I had a meeting on a project that will be previewed in autumn 2021 (October-December) and spring 2022 (April 2022). What an effort! In the industry, when someone says, "Deliver the episodes three months before the premiere!" Then we have no choice but to follow these instructions and have no authority over the process.""

According to him, the cause of this situation is therefore primarily due to the internal market, which is at least still no longer able to adjust the financial resources for the production of souls. Instead, what do you think of this situation? Let us know with a comment below.
