Miyazaki Doesnt like Female Animators
My favorite Imagineer Miyazaki shared a few words on Twitter about what he thinks about female animators entering the business of animation. Here's what he said:
"They say it’s over for animation in Japan. When we look for new hires only women respond, and I get the feeling that we’re done for. In our last hurrah we borrow from outside staff (i.e. outsource), but soon we won’t be able to do that forever."
Mind you this is a translation from his native language, so maybe there's some misinterpretations here. So before anyone gets offended by Miyazaki's "It's a man's world" statement, just remember he said it in Japanese. Here's the linkfor the source.
