Not particularly great news, but I don't want to cry the end of the world just yet. Anime is way too crowded to handle the output we've currently got, regardless of how you look at it. Unless they are going to just outsource half of every given show even at the key animation stage, things are going to be like this a lot. There literally just aren't enough people. I'm reading the epic yet frustrating story of the final two episodes of Flip Flappers right now and it's literally a feat that should go down in history books for how intensive the schedule was and how much work the staff had to push out in basically no time at all. It's insane.

Didn't Wake Up, Girls! also put out a desperate call on Twitter for animators partway through its first season?

Not the end of the world. Attack on Titan's WIT Studio did the same exact thing for that anime.

Yeah, it's happened quite a few times. Not actually that rare. But it rarely is a good sign.

While the pay rate and working conditions are horrid, this is a chance for English-speaking expats in Japan to actually work on anime. Good luck!
