You all know that the anime industry in Japan isn’t doing so hot. Some starting animators make about ¥94,000 a month, which is about $1,031 dollars, but most make less than this. This is very, very hard to live off of here in the States, but in Japan where things cost a lot more it is almost impossible. However, in the states an animator can make about 35 to 60 thousand a year, which is a vast difference. So what would happen if an anime company, like Gainax for example, would pick up shop and move to the US?
