    One word for you: Plastics.

    Everybody always asks how they can work in the anime or VN or porn or (fill in entertainment based) industry. In the final segment of this week’s ANNCast, our editor Sloanereinja tells you what you need to know to break into the industry and more importantly, why working it freelance is a very bad idea.
