    Question Who does what?

    I have a small and quick question. For an anime... let's take Orphen, it's an anime and manga. My question is, do the manga illustrators also draw the anime? If not then who does draw the anime? How can I find it in the credits?

    It is rare for the original manga artist to do the designs of a derived anime series. It is often the case that the only credit given to the original manga artist is the reference to the series, and the manga magazine it ran in. When the original manga artist is involved, they usually only work on a specific part of the series. (As an example, in Cardcaptor Sakura, members from CLAMP did the designs for the Clow/Star Cards, dresses and combat outfits. Everything else, including character designs, were done by the staff of Mad House studios...) Usually, different parts of the anime are done by different people, with one person doing the character designes, someone else doing equipment/mecha drawings, someone else doing backgrounds, etc. The credits should include the lead animators of a series, or the studios that were sub-contracted to animate individual scenes, (and copying someone else's work/design should be second nature to them, as nearly all the people currently in the anime industry got their start doing in-betweening work...)

    For some idea's on how anime is actually produced, there are some comedy spoofs (such as 'Animation Runner Kuromi') that take a inward look on how anime is produced. Other series (such as 'Golden Boy', 'Paranoia Agent', 'Nurse Witch Komugi') also have individual episodes that spoof the production of anime...

    In the credits of Orphen (as example) they don't list the lead animators... or any animators. Is there something else they are reffured to as? Thanks for the help, BTW.

    There sometimes listed as 'Art' director, or director of 'Photography'. With the lower budget TV productions, it is often the case that the producer grabs any resource that's available at the studio, so there are often different people responsible for different positions in different episodes. The production credits are usually more complete with the larger budget anime movies and OVA series...
