I'm surprised that there are studios out there that still haven't transitioned to digital yet. Japan's resistance to updating themselves technologically is really rearing its ugly head here and shows that they need to do something about it. I wouldn't be surprised if many businesses go under for this, sadly.

As much as I love hand-drawn animation, it's frankly astounding that this is still the case in the year 2020.

The difficulty experienced by various studios should serve as a wake-up call to the archaic nature long-standing practices in the industry are. It will be sad that some studios will not make it and people will lose jobs, but hopefully this will hit home for the management/leadership to finally make some structural changes, even if the changes will likely to be less than adequate. After all, if it doesn't hit the revenue, it is going to be hard to change stuff regardless.

I kind of doubt it, since the common compressed production timeline isn't generally a decision made by the studios, but rather an effect from how the entire industry is s
operates. They simply aren't given the time needed to make content well before it is due to air, and changing that would cost money - something the industry is already notoriously short on.

I wish I could find the article, but I remember reading about three or four years ago that fax machines were still in common use in Japan for ordering delivery or takeout, and that as some restaurants tried to transition to 100% online ordering they received so much pushback from their customers they went back to accepting faxes.

It really is ironic that a nation which is famous for high technology also clings to its older technology so much. I don't think that's a bad thing in all cases though. Many times I think the combination of high tech innovation and traditional artisan skills can reach greater heights than either can alone.
