Wanpack, which handled animation for many studios in the industry who outsourced part of their work, has closed due to Koji Yamada’s death.

It is still difficult at this point for Wanpack’s young and talented animators to find work, perhaps highlighting how difficult an industry like this can be and what some of its underlying problems still represent. It is to note that all of this is in spite of a shortage of manpower within the greater industry.
