Mappa On Why They Over-Work Staff
Recently, Mappa Studio’s President, Manabu Otsuka revealed why they decided to overwork their staff, contributing to a horrible work environment.
Anime Studios like Ufotable and Kyoto Animation have already cemented their position for being the best in Animation Quality.
Manabu said, that to catch up to the quality of these Studios, Mappa decided to take a different approach.
He said Mappa’s project is to produce a lot of work and gain experience in a short period of time while maintaining a higher quality level.
Mappa wants to be in the race with the top studios as soon as possible. And for this to happen, he stated that productivity must be increased.
Hence, the President clearly implied that unless Mappa over-work their staff, there is no other way out for them to reach the top soon.
More disturbing news also came to light regarding Mappa recently. According to the Animators working there, it was revealed that Mappa made their animators sign an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement).
