But that's NOT a stupid idea! In fact, I think it's a pretty good one, since there are plenty of ways to get your foot in that door without learning Japanese, or even leaving the country. The manga/anime thread is becoming more popular here, as is evidenced by Teen Titans and Powerpuff Girls, so it's not at all unlikely that you could work in that area.

Unfortunately, you probably wouldn't get paid very much, though.....

Indeed being a character designer would rock. All the glory for creating the characters and none of the work with animating or anything.

It would be a typical creative job, meaning that you really could do it, and even make good money at it, but it's unlikely to be exactly what you expect. You'd need to get a college degree in some kind of graphic design, putting together a portfolio together along the way, and be willing to do stuff other than character design -- when games are developed, they need people to come up with monsters and scenery and such too -- and it would help a lot if you could do more traditional art/designs in addition to anime/manga ones.

From there you could probably work your way into a niche doing just character designs, but the way the industry is going you'd have to be prepared to deal with companies outsourcing more to either freelancers or overseas.

But if you like costuming, maybe you should think about fashion design? In this country we need more cool-looking clothes, especially for guys. :P
