There is no secret of the salary crisis for the anime business. As the medium keeps growing in prominence, shows don’t receive equivalent payments. In the previous decade, wages for animators and crew workers fell only where they should. Netflix and Mappa Studios now appear to be getting bogged down in the middle of a nasty surprise.
