​It has been a year since Aoba Suzukaze started working at the Eagle Jump game company. In that time, she and her eccentric coworkers in the character design department have worked hard to release the company's newest game: Fairies Story 3. With their latest title now complete, a new project must begin—starting with a contest to decide the character designs for the upcoming game. Through hard work, dedication, and some guidance from the previous character designer, Kou Yagami, Aoba wins the contest and begins her new role as lead character designer.

However, her new job is not an easy one. In addition to having extra work and longer hours, Aoba questions whether she is the right fit for the job. As she overcomes her inexperience with the help of her friends and coworkers, Aoba is willing to face any challenge to make Eagle Jump's newest creation, a cutesy game called Peco.

Just finished re-watching this anime season 1 and season 2 for 2 days and yes this anime motivates me and makes me dream of becoming an animator or animation designer making anime or making games. but it looks very difficult, it requires hard work and never giving up like our MC Aoba did. This is the positive impact of slice of life genre anime which focuses on hobbies or professions, which usually anime with this genre would feel boring but by adding the spice of comedy and competition it feels fun, and there are several ecchi scenes which are not excessive, making the ...

Amazing as season one, it was absolutely adorable and still the same.
A great amount of screentime for it's characters and makes you love them even more, while half way I've somewhat enjoyed due to them trying something new, while it tackled the problems and prepared for futures one.

While realism doesn't exist anime, it did a few of them here and there. It felt too good and due to those, it made very happy moments from those solutions for them. A few drama, but it shouldn't be too much.
Truly a great slice of life anime with cute girls, the expression and quality of the ...

Mixed Feelings
I really enjoyed the first season and gave it a really high score, but unfortunately the second season didn't quite live up to the first. While I enjoyed the new challenges that came with being in the game industry and moving up in the company, it felt less slice-of-life-y and wasn't as funny. Additionally, there was more fanservice, which is generally okay but it was a noticeable jump in the amount.

I didn't really connect to the new characters or feel like they were as integrated since we had the full first season to bond with our beloved cast, and some favorites were kind of ...
