Did you have to post a funnyjunk image? And hopefully you just swiped it from google, instead of actually using that site.

I bet you don't even know what that word means, though no one seems to anymore. Anyway, because the Japanese animation industry has its own problems. Japan's industry has largely stagnated whereas the North American animation industry is largely regressive, but stagnation is still not good. Western Europe seems like a mixed bag, but as far as I know, their animation industry is about as big as America's, that is, not very.
Lastly, I suggest you read Spengler.
Apparently, one of the projects Sony is working on is a comedy called Fixed
, directed by Genndy, and a more serious epic action-adventure film called Black Knight
, written and directed by Genndy. The latter may be PG-13, but I've seen nothing about a rating yet.
The implication is that, with the temporary decline in film production following the pandemic, there will be room for animation, which has remained largely unscathed, to move its adult content into other genres than "comedy".
Also, consider the sort of people who have begun filling the ranks of the animation industry, and the rise of the Internet giving way to the spread of foreign material.
Most of what I've seen from post-Soviet Russia has been so-so in quality and largely for children, and France seems to produce most animated content for children, and I heard they are pushing for educational content. The People's Republic of China also seems to be ramping up their animation industry, but not only is it not as unique as I would like (i.e. too Japanese-styled, though I understand that it's difficult to do anything else given how influential Japanese animation is in Asia), but tends to be so-so in quality.
It seems less anti-Christian and more anti-cult or anti-authoritarian, so I agree somewhat.
Actually, as far as I know, they do exactly that. It's just within their secure local network. They probably have people come over to work because most people working in those industries (or really any industry) have an easier time expressing their ideas face to face than online, besides that there is equipment not everyone has access to at home. In fact, in the OP's article, in the first bolded paragraph, there is a link for another article. In that article, it goes over how the animation industry has been handling the pandemic (fairly well), and apparently one of the problems with this change is that some employees needed to be sent studio equipment.
