what are the reason that let some animators chiose to work on some projects with high quality standards if they can produce much more work(and more income) if they worked on mediocare quality projects?

Because money isn't everything. They get to test their limits, learn a lot and grow a lot by pushing them. Personal contacts, favors might be involved. There is artistic joy in doing something great too.

How did you land your current job? Personally job hunting in Tokyo and while I'm very interested in the industry, I never thought us gaijins could actually make it there, so consider me wowed and eager to learn more.

You shouldn't go anime, at least not at the entry job like mine (PA). I got desperate after I couldn't find a job for a long time and applied every position that came to mind. They are quite desperate for people with common sense and more interest in the job than "I like anime". Of course "impressive" Japanese language skills are required.
