Yes, there are large quantity of females in the anime industry.
Watch some documentary and you'll see that this is actually normal. (even studio like ghibli hires animator from overseas, in one of their documentary you could see there's a baka gaijin female animator in their studio).
Or just go to twitter and follow some animators and it'll be clear for you.
What the fuck happened?
the problem with Ema is just she didn't know that much shit about animation on the first hand, her incapability of drawing animals probably indicated that she went straight for internship in musani without even taking a formal education, hell it's even possible that she didn't even read the fundamental books thoroughly and just went animating stuff, thinking that she's talented and muh love for drawing will overcome any challanges, no it's not, you can't git gud like that.
What's more embarrasing from her is just she's too shy to even ask other people and asking critiques on how to improve (until that one part where the based old animator has to ask Iguchi to give her advice), fuck, even i would be wasting my time 24/7 in the studio just to hang around good animator such as Endou or even Goth Loli sama begging for their knowledge and technique or even asking Goth Loli sama to go with me on weekend to a live-drawing session where she could freely draw me as i expose my whole body and soul to her.
She's incompetent, her art looks stiff that even Loomis wasn't enough to fix it, moreover she didn't perceive the world around her as a proper animator should, What the fuck? after more than 18 years of living she never even noticed the joints of a cat? That shit is so important that Walt Stanchfield mentioned that placement of the joints in a character are more important than the joint or the anatomy itself.
She shouldn't even consider herself a pro when there's even a more competent flip/gook/viet/taiwanese animator than her.
Calm down, man. A story about anime production wouldn't be very appealing without some real word animator suffering, would it? Ema needs to be flawed to guarantee our maximum entertainment value.
Real life happened and overwork, now she is aware that she don't really have talent and that she already lost any other good path in her life because of a bad decision when she was a highschooler.
Real life and overwork happened
Yo Ema, I'm really happy for you and imma let you finish, but KyoAni is the best animation studio of all time
OF ALL TIME
How much longer until she gives up?
Things would have been so much better if Tarou was the MC.
But the first OP is too fantastic to ditch!
