Animator Dormitory Releases English Dubbed Video on Life of an Animator

The Animator Dormitory gives anime animators a more affordable place to live, and it’s part of Jun Sugawara’s mission to help animators have a better life and be treated better at work. Recently they released an English dub for “I Learned How to Skateboard for Anime!”, which had previously been released in Japanese.

Animator Dormitory explains about this video: “The character in our videos, Ryoko, is a fictional character. However, her stories are based on experiences of real, new animators who stay at the Animator Dormitory.”

Just watching these videos helps give donations to Animator Dormitory. Check out Otaku USA‘s interview with Jun Sugawara to learn more.
