Japanese animation studio WHITE FOX issued an apology on its official Twitter account for allegedly engaging in gender discriminatory hiring practices. The studio’s hiring page allegedly advertised a production assistant position specifying a female under the age of 26. Apparently the media couldn’t confirm this information since every studio opening up hires isn’t always tracked, but a cache of the recruiting page specified a “male or female under 26,” and the page now reads ” a person under the age of 30” at the time of publication of this article, indicating that it has been being changed.

In a series of Twitter posts that the studio’s representative director, Gaku Iwasahe wrote personally, explained that the company had advertised the position this way since the company’s inception, and that the company “has just learned of the existence of the Equal Employment Opportunity Act“. The law, passed in Japan in 1972, requires equal employment opportunities for men and women. Iwasa apologized for causing inconvenience to others and causing a disturbance late at night in Japan time. “We strive to improve the work environment while being open to learning things outside of our comfort zone,” added Iwasa. WHITE FOX was founded in April 2007 and has produced anime such as Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu, STEINS;GATE, STEINS;GATE 0, Arifureta Shokugyou from Sekai Saikyou, Jormungand, Jormungand Perfect Order, Gochuumon wa Usagi desu ka?, Girls’ Last Tour and AKAME ga KILL!, among others.
