He Claims The Anime Industry Relies Too Much On China – Kudasai

japanese portal myjitsu shared an article by stating that the recent suspension of anime productions COVID-19 are the result of Studios in Japan typically rely heavily on outsourced labor from China.,

,The anime industry in Japan has been hit again by the COVID-19 pandemic, but by its effects in China. Notably, the Winter-2023 (January-March) season has seen one blackout after another, and Silver Link Studios seems to stand out in this regard. On February 13, Silver Link Studios announced that the seventh episode of the second season of “Bofuri: I Don’t Want to Get Hurt, So I Will Max Out My Defense” would be delayed by two weeks.,

,The reason was, and we quote, “Since late last year, production has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic in China. As a result, we have decided to postpone the telecast of new episodes. And the statement continued: “After the resumption, episodes will be broadcast regularly until the tenth episode. However, with regard to the last two episodes (eleventh and twelfth), their status will be confirmed soon”, which hints that this second season may be suspended again.,

,Additionally, the second season of “Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha” has also been delayed when it was already on the air. On the other hand, “Ayyashi Triangle” is another series that has also been suspended. And although it is produced by Connect Studios, it should be noted that it is a subsidiary of Silver Link. Also this season three series produced by Silver Link and its subsidiaries have disappeared from television.,

,Silver Link’s problems have caught the attention of fans with comments like these: “Is Silver Link lost this season?,we are too dependent on china” And “oh my god the silver link is gone“. Not only Silver Link works, like projects “NieR: Automata Ver.1.1a,Unite Up!” And “kubo-san wa mob wo urusnaiOne after the other have been suspended. In addition, other projects such as “Saint Cecilia and Pastor Lawrence” And “masamune-kun no revenge season 2“, which were due to premiere in April, have been delayed until July, and the anime industry continues to reel in a series of suspensions that will likely continue.,

,And in all communications, the same reason is mentioned: “The spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.” Based on the anime, mention of China has been omitted, but in fact, many studios in Japan outsource animation staff from China, but are now disabled by the pandemic’s return to the Asian giant. The anime industry in Japan is paying the “bill” for its decisions to produce massive amounts of content on a workforce from China. The quality of foreign animators has improved in recent years, but Japan doesn’t seem to care about training its own people.,
