Day in the Life of a Japanese Game Illustrator

Day in the Life of a Japanese Game Illustrator

A day in the life of a Japanese Square Enix Game Illustrator. Square Enix is one of the top video game developers in Japan, creating ultra popular titles known-worldwide such as Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts and making it all happen, 3700 hard working employees. Today, we follow a Japanese Game Illustrator working in the Japanese game development company from morning until the evening. We show what a typical work day in Japan would be including her typical work hours as a Japanese game illustrator working for Square Enix. We also see her morning routine and after work hobbies. Also this is what it would be like working for a popular Japanese game company and the different staff you may come across during a typical work day. The Japanese game industry has so many different jobs so it was great to be able to show another job outside of game development and game programming. Rubi has been working as a video game illustrator in Japan for 6 years now. Even as a little girl she loved to draw but growing up couldn’t envision a proper career where she could pursue her passion. So she entered University majoring in a completely different field, but when her job hunting started, she discovered that there were prestigious Japanese companies were offering illustration jobs. Recognizing the opportunity, she convinced her parents to let her study Character Design at a Professional Training College, ultimately leading to her dream job at her current company, Square Enix and working with Art Directors like Toshiyuki Itahana.

  3. 大坂秀吉 on December 16, 2022 at 1:02 am

    必要ない描写が多すぎると感じる。ただの一例だが、服をハンガーにかける映像とか編集者は何を伝えたいの?

  4. wubalubadubdub on December 16, 2022 at 1:03 am

    Amazing video! Rubi is so cute and talented 🙂

  8. Her sweet Pete on December 16, 2022 at 1:10 am

    You should do a "A day in the life of a Nintendo game developer."

  9. felix Dacat on December 16, 2022 at 1:10 am

    Aligato Paolo Sama!

  15. Dennis on December 16, 2022 at 1:19 am

    I’d love to see Tajima or Barudan embroidery machines :))

  16. Shannon Olivas on December 16, 2022 at 1:19 am

    I love how the most replayed part is people trying to see what kind of little animals she has in the cage at the start.
    Also I saw that Moogle and was immediately impressed Paolo! You managed to get us a look inside a prestigious studio!

  17. UFR00lz on December 16, 2022 at 1:20 am

    Damn pretty depressing

  18. The Shadow Man on December 16, 2022 at 1:20 am

    So this is socializing these days ? Playing online and getting hammered. And Japanese wonder why their birth rate is at rock bottom

  19. JessaRin on December 16, 2022 at 1:21 am

    Zell appreciation! He’s a funny character.

  20. Shannon Olivas on December 16, 2022 at 1:22 am

    Amogus spotted, even in Japan! Looks like a fun job.

  21. John Chong on December 16, 2022 at 1:22 am

    anyone has her instagram? she’s so pretty

  22. Itsmedrico on December 16, 2022 at 1:23 am

    When they go to work and then go back home, I’ve noticed they don’t take a shower. I couldn’t have dinner if I didn’t take a shower first.

  23. yomogi on December 16, 2022 at 1:27 am

    自分が大好きだったスクエニはもういないんだと思った。

  24. Juan Leon on December 16, 2022 at 1:27 am

    Very entertaining video

  25. DroiDxL on December 16, 2022 at 1:28 am

    Hey Paolo! Would be great if you could try do a day in the life of a japanese barber/hairdresser?

  26. Ben Kadel on December 16, 2022 at 1:28 am

    Paolo, we need a Sutan update 😀

  27. yLLiDan Godspell on December 16, 2022 at 1:28 am

    dude, SQUARE ENIX :000

  29. Alaor Alves on December 16, 2022 at 1:35 am

    Absolutely legend. Paolo is up on my top favorite youtubers/content creators. From top 10 best to top 5 best. Maybe top 3. But certainly is the most expected videos release for me.

  30. 抹茶プリン on December 16, 2022 at 1:36 am

    魔女にならなかったリノアじゃん

  31. Ronald Osorio on December 16, 2022 at 1:38 am

    di na naligo eh 😅

  32. Tom Setberg on December 16, 2022 at 1:39 am

    Working for Square Enix would be the dream. Hopefully someday I am qualified.

  33. Mr Kyo on December 16, 2022 at 1:41 am

    from game illustrator to living in a cardboard box, ai art will change her life.

  34. Allan T. Falcão on December 16, 2022 at 1:41 am

  38. JkennGG on December 16, 2022 at 1:44 am

    Man I got ptsd from the alarm 💀

  39. Nil on December 16, 2022 at 1:46 am

    2:03 Wow, a small seat dedicated for putting on shoes. Always interesting seeing the small things in life that people use. Not that I would ever use it.

  40. nbiscuitz on December 16, 2022 at 1:47 am

    we need a day in the life of a fukushima meltdown clean up crew. XD

  41. Roi Bautista on December 16, 2022 at 1:48 am

    AMOGUS

  42. Reive on December 16, 2022 at 1:50 am

  43. PurpleLily on December 16, 2022 at 1:50 am

    Ciao Paolo

  44. Unknown Animator116 on December 16, 2022 at 1:53 am

    Do a day in the life of a Japanese animator

  45. Shabazza84 on December 16, 2022 at 1:53 am

    3700 employees? i had no idea.
    Also: Not using a smudge guard for the tablet… :O
    Also also: She should really use that chair to keep a good posture. Looks painful for 10 hours a day.
    Artists behind the scenes like her get way too few credit for their work.

  46. Lizzy ♡ on December 16, 2022 at 1:54 am

    she’s so cool!! thank you for sharing c:

  47. amelia sindu hasanah on December 16, 2022 at 1:54 am

    every time I watch this video series I feel motivated to learn and try to work in my dream workplace

  48. BallHeadFreak on December 16, 2022 at 1:55 am

    That is NOT how you should ever keep a Chinchilla. Super small enclosure, keeping it alone. These animals are extremely social and it borders on abuse to keep them in such a small space. Imagine being locked inside a 15 square meters room being alone 24/7 for the rest of your life never seeing another member of your species.

  49. Kalen Burns on December 16, 2022 at 1:56 am

    one of the best ones yet

  50. NΛzo on December 16, 2022 at 1:57 am

    Whoa you got to make a video about a Square Enix employee and not just any employee but an illustrator too. Man, I would love to see a game composer from Square Enix next if possible.
