Screenwriting in Japan

Screenwriters are also known as screenplay writers, scriptwriters, or scenarists. In Japan, they serve the entertainment industry by writing stories for various media genres, including films, television programs, cartoons (anime), and video games.

While screenwriters are typically freelance professionals in the West, they may be attached to production companies or agencies on a case-by-case basis in Japan. There are also a variety of compensation models.
