I watched the first episode of New Game, an anime about working at a video game developer, and there were two things that happened on the main character’s first day that also happened on my first day:

- I saw someone get shot with a toy gun because they were late for a meeting

- I tried to ask someone a question and they didn’t respond because they had earbuds in

True to life!

The least believable part to me was that this company hired an illustrator even though they needed 3D art, and then just handed her a Maya textbook and had her start at chapter one. I’m glad y’all are committed to on the job training but your release date is in six months! What are you doing
