Anime Supremacy!

© 2022 ANIME SUPREMACY ! The Movie Production Committee

After quitting her job, Hitomi decides to pursue a career in the anime industry. Soon she suffers from impossible deadlines, pressure from producers, fierce competition, and sexism in the business. How can she be successful without compromising her artistic vision? A funny dramedy that is also a compelling look at the anime industry.

SAITO Hitomi gaf haar vaste baan als ambtenaar op om een carrière in de anime-industrie op te bouwen. De glans van de anime-filmwereld is er echter al snel af, met schijnbaar onmogelijke deadlines, producenten die constant druk uitoefenen, intense concurrentie en seksisme. Ze vindt het lastig om succesvol te zijn zonder haar artistieke visie te verloochenen. Tragikomedie die een intrigerend inkijkje in de animewereld biedt.
