Almost a year since a devastating arson attack destroyed its building and killed dozens of its employees, Kyoto Animation is rising from the ashes. The studio is hiring once again.
On its website, KyoAni (as it is widely known) has posted openings for both fixed-term and year-round jobs, starting in the fiscal year 2021 (i.e. next April). They include 2d animation roles, 3d cg positions (modeling, rigging, effects, animation production), and managers and system engineers. Recruitment was supposed to start earlier, but was delayed due to the coronavirus.
The studio is also accepting applications for its animator training program, as well as that of its sister studio Animation Do. The courses run for a year from October; applicants must be aged 18–25.
