He said that no corrective actions have been taken to improve the conditions for freelance animators. Shibata also said that the current environment is devastating and there is no room to nurture talent in animators.


And there likely won't be any actions taken for the foreseeable future, unless some kind of restructuring is implemented.

I mean, it's nice, but why the hell didn't those animator-friendly shared homes didn't get this kind of support at the time? (I'm not even sure they actually raised enough money.)

In addition to the crowdfunding campaign, Animator Dormitory and Young Animators NPO are combating low wages among Japan's animators with help from donations.


What a wonderful thing to do. Giving Japanese animators some support so they can do what they love without enduring hardship. At the same time, helping Japanese studios keep work there in Japan and not going to cheaper studios overseas.[/quote]

They hit 130% of their goal this year - https://www.generosity.com/fundraising/2017-animator-dormitory-project. I think you can still donate.

Seriously, if they want to bring bigger donations, use bigger sites like GoFundMe. If I had at least $25,000 in the bank (I have under $6940 currently), I would gladly donate $500-$2500.
