This year’s take-home income
Price after deduction of withholding tax
After paying the consumption tax, resident tax, pension, and national health insurance, the only thing left is my net income.
Approx. 10.87 million yen

look at this,
“You’re making enough money!”
“You have a dream!”
There are people who say
・Over 1 million copies of the series
・Animation planning in progress
Are you a writer of
In other words, he is in the top 5% (?) of all novelists, so to speak.
But this much…
You don’t have a dream, do you? https://t.co/NnN6YFdSuC

By the way, how many people misunderstand that the total sales of 1 million copies in the series alone is 10 million a year?
How many people misunderstand that 10 million is only for works that are in the process of being animated?
5 million for 1 million copies, 5 million for works that are in the process of being animated, and the rest is about 800,000, right? (narrative trick)

Does a novelist who sells that much only make an annual income of around 10 million…
Novelists have absolutely no guarantee that they will continue to earn that annual income in the future…
In a way, it’s an unstable profession like a member of parliament w
Even if you say that…
too amazing to see from below
If I knew how much a sole proprietor earning 10 million a year pays national health insurance and resident tax every month, it wouldn’t be a dream at all……
I think being able to eat what you like is worth it as a dream, but…
Moreover, life does not end in one year, so in order to live as a full-time writer, even if it is a percentage of this income, it is necessary to maintain it for ten or twenty years.
It’s not that I don’t have dreams, it’s just that I’m worthless
I can’t help it because I’m a mass-produced type of novelist
It sure is dangerous,,,,
The month that you can’t get even if you’re planning to make a million copies of the anime is at the level of a part-time job…
That’s why everyone writes light novels as a side job
To be honest, from the bottom of my heart, I’m so jealous that I’m at a level where I can work hard on what I like and make it into an anime.
>The top 5% (?) of all novelists, so to speak, director-class light novel writer
The percentage of annual income of 10 million or more in Japan is about 5%, so it’s almost there… but I’m worried that there will be fluctuations every month.
It’ll become even more popular after it’s made into an anime, and I’m sure there’ll be a merchandise release, so I’m sure you’ll get more out of it.
