Not answering your question but just saying, this fantasy job of yours plays on all you know (your adolescence-long love of anime and Japanese culture). In a few years you will have broadened your experiences and probably want to do something else. So do whatever the fuck you want, but I recommend picking up some IT skills and getting really fucking good at Japanese and possibly learning a bit of another language too.

i was like you, 10 years ago.. i wanted to be the next Gainax.

Being a delusional gaijin didnt help me

If you really want to kill yourself that badly, there are faster methods.

>>1502791
I see you doubt me, but I think I can do it, judging by how many stories I read online of people getting jobs in japan studying japanese after entering college.
>>1502796
how can i not get rejected right away?

I dont know what else i could want. I guess I like cartoons too. My hobby has always been drawing. But, ive been a weeb since i was 14. I have little friends, and couldn't imagine getting a gf. This aspiration has made me more happy about life.

Idk if its ironic or not, but when i was at the hight of my weebdom; watching 10 eps of anime a day. I didn't care about japan or japanese at all. I just wanted some generic business job when i was older, and spend my freetime browsing imageboards and drawing. It's only after I cut back on anime that I became interested in japan.

>i wanted to be the next Gainax.
this sounds hauntingly like me. Id be interested in what happened to you.
>>1502861
This aspect makes me 2nd guess my choice. I really dont know if im up for the task of literally sleeping at my job. The closest thing Ive had to a job before was volunteering at a warehouse for 7 hours.

>this sounds hauntingly like me. Id be interested in what happened to you.

the barriers of entry are too high, in the japanese workforce.. they just dont hire gaijin.. But there are rare exceptions, but the odds are against you.

I still watch animu but i have no aspirations of working in japan anymore.. maybe a visit
>>
>>1502919
I see. But, still im going to try anyway. Its not like trying will prevent me from getting another job.... i hope.

Besides, my other aspiration is to make a bunch money to hire artists to animate shit for me one day.

nothing wrong with trying, all you will lose is time and effort. Its easy to get a teaching job, but hard to get into animation.

nigger you are dumb do you even know what a financier is before you type that?

you are fucked go to your state school and get a mediocre job
>>
>>1502708
why should an employer choose you over a local? A local probably has the same skills as you, easily. They would have better japanese, have had internships and actually have residency. Being a token white kid doesn't cut it. Marketing and financing isn't really an expat sort of job, either.

But your best option in my honest opinion is TESOL and once you're comfortable in japan, THEN look for jobs. You might find that you've changed what you wanted to do, or decided that the shitty corporate climate of japan is not worth it. At least then you've had time to travel and experience Japan without being locked into a job you don't even like with LTE.

>>1502708
Get a four year degree in literally anything, get some real world experience in whatever you want to do, and pass the N2. Then you can START thinking about working in Japan.

You have to be really stand out to be hired over a local who can do the same thing and isn't a potential cultural clusterfuck waiting to happen.

Learn to know what working in japan is like from based Ken Seeroi. If you really want to live there after reading his blog then you would also understand the amount of shit you will have to do. But if its what you want to do in your life then do it. Anything is possible if you apply yourself but like anything it won't be easy. You are still young so you might not have a clear idea yet on what you want to do in life, but don't let your dreams become pipe dreams, you must be dedicated 110% more than your Japanese peers.

Kneeling is actually very common in Japan, especially in traditional environments, and it hurts like a bitch.
>>
>>1504629
Did you not read the replies? Everyone has been telling you to forget about it.

The Japs are famously insular and fat pasty weeaboos wandering Tokyo speaking broken moonspeak and attempting to become professional manga-ka are a diamond dozen. For perspective, imagine some autistic jap kid watched ten episodes of the Lone Ranger every day and then turned up at a ranch in Texas applying for an HR/management position because "honorable anon-san, I am of determined position that myself can earn big bucks yeehaw by management of cowboy-chan personages, yippee ki yay mah nigga-kun uguu~". The local morgue would be at capacity due to a sudden pandemic of ruptured obliques.

Your call, I suppose. Depends on what your tolerance for ridicule, humiliation and rejection are, as you're currently cruising for all three.

It's not like his dream is unachievable. If he spends a few years studying Japanese and business he might get hired.
It's just kind of a shitty dream. Japanese corporations are so bad that they have a word meaning "death by overworking."
>>
>>1502894
>You doubt me
It's not that I doubt you, it's that you don't have the skills necessary to even consider working in a professional environment in Japan.

Almost every companies requires a MINIMUM of JLPT2 and to even be considered a serious applicant you need to have JLPT1.

JLPT 5 and 4 are literally meme tier. They're not going to get you jack shit in Japan except for being able to barely communicate with the locals.

Also, did you actually sit for the exam? Take the reading, writing and verbal test? Because if not and you just took some meme test it once again means jack shit.

I am also willing to bet my entire life savings that you haven't ever visited 日本語 and if you have you literally just sat in maid cafe's in Akihabara and beat your dick all day.

You are aware that the anime industry is dying hard, right? The jobs themselves have always been endless grindhouses of drawing hell, and that's now gotten significantly worse because the market's drying up somewhat. The demand for anything but generic speedily made moeshit anime has plummeted. Akihabara has gone from a cool techy place to what I'd describe as 10% interesting, 40% moeshit, and 50% porn.

As someone who has worked in Japan, let me be also absolutely clear: there isn't gonna be some magical period where they hug you and make you honorarily Japanese. The unfortunate reality is that Japanese people are ultra-racist and ultra-conservative, not to mention incredibly tired of pasty-ass white guys from America showing up to awkwardly try to live their anime dreams and try to fuck locals. Many will be super nice to you, but you are going to be the "outsider" forever. It's OK if you're OK with that, but trust me - you don't know how frustrating that can be at weird points during your day.

Let me put this in perspective: when I studied abroad in Japan, I'd say I was part of a class of ~50-ish foreigners. For the VAST majority of them, they became incredibly depressed after a few weeks of staying in Japan. Why? The country is (1) no better than the West in any appreciable way, (2) isn't accommodating to foreigners beyond perfunctory nicety, and (3) has a fucking horrible work/life balance that makes its people near-zombies. That's not saying Japan isn't rad, but it IS saying that it's very different than what you're probably thinking it is.

tl;dr: If you can't cut it in the West, don't fucking go East. You'll just become yet another goddamn English teacher.

>>1502708
Alright here's what you do
Start lifting weights and finish university
if you still want to get the job, then you can intimidate the japs with your presence and start producing good shows again, where not everyone has died hair and not every girl is a stereotype and not every guy is a pussy or cuck

do this
make anime great again

You are right, which is why I plan on studying abroad in Japan one day too. I have only really spent a month there and wont be able to return for a couple more years,

I will, for as long as I live, never become a permament English teacher. Nor any type of teacher for that matter. And I will never become a degenerate that blogs about fucking japanese girls every week in a bar. I wont even get drunk in college!

>>1505358
if I was just doing this to create a cartoon, I would just stay and america, where it would be easier to run the some online business. Im doing this for interest. But I cant describe why im interested. Ever since I became a weeb, ive been interested in other aspects of Japan I guess.

>>1505497
and yes, I did pass the n4. I remember the day well.
>got up
>watched Brian Reagan
>Got biscuit and hot chocolate from 711

>>1505497
