Japanese school to give out degrees for aspiring professional gamers
"What do you want to be when you grow up?" is a question asked every single day by millions of parents around the world. Up until now, a parent could only shake his or her head when the answer was, "I want to become a professional gamer!" Luckily for many kids and parents like this, the renowned Tokyo School Of Anime has just announced the establishment of a new curriculum for aspiring professional gamers to accomplish their dreams.
This is no joke. The Tokyo School of Anime, established in Tokyo in 2011, is a technical school specializing in animation voice acting, production, design, creation, and business. Degrees are given out for 26 majors in the aforementioned five fields, and upon completion of two years of study at the school, graduating students are able to pursue their goals of working in the highly competitive animation industry, armed with the much-needed training and experience provided by the academy and assisted by the school's employment assistance programs and connections in the industry. Admission is open to international students as well, so if you're ready to give it a shot, check out the academy's website at http://www.anime.ac.jp/en/.
And for those of you not especially into anime, but super-into playing video games, the Tokyo School of Anime has opened up two new curriculua, one for all-around professional gaming and another for the business and marketing. By enrolling at the school and focusing your "studies" on the gaming world, you will learn the ins and outs of the professional gaming industry, and maybe, if you're talented enough, will be able to make a living as someone who just plays games all day, because believe it or not, there are people who do that.
Good luck to all aspiring gamers and their parents.
