The film's story is set four years after the events of the original Shirobako anime. Aoi Miyamori keeps busy dealing with the ordinary troubles in her daily work at Musashino Animation. After a morning meeting, Watanabe talks to Aoi and puts her in charge of a new theatrical anime project for the studio. The project has unexpected problems, and Aoi is unsure if the company can proceed with a theatrical anime with its current state of affairs. While dealing with that anxiety, Aoi meets a new colleague named Kaede Miyai (voiced by Ayane Sakura). She and the MusAni team work together to complete the project.

In the early moments of Shirobako's latest film endeavor, one of the new characters lays witness to a discussion on the radio regarding the difficult state of the modern anime industry. Perhaps the anime bubble had burst, and buyers have long been dwindling away from the market? The song that follows is a fitting follow-up to these concerns, lamenting how there is little that can be done, save for embracing the reality and pushing onwards.

This stark contrast to other anime and manga, where said industries are celebrated and deified, presents a more sober and realistic take that is scarcely found elsewhere. Perhaps we have been read more

The original Shirobako is, maybe a bit oddly, one of the most original and unique experiences I've had with anime over the years of being a fan, despite not offering a complex plot or well-developed characters. What it offers is a really simple but endearing story of people working in an animation studio. Not much more, not much less. It uses its simple setup to tell very effective personal and collective stories and does so in an interesting, realistic, and fresh setting.

And here we are today, with a direct sequel of the original Shirobako at hand. A sequel that didn't feel needed. After all, the read more

Possible spoiler!

one of my favorite let's review

starting with the introduction of full season 1 shirobako, making this movie quite friendly with new audiences BUT I highly recommend watching season 1 first, why?
because all the character relationships in SHIROBAKO itself build up in season 1.

The main story itself was at the time of the destruction of the Mushani studio where our MC was working. In those difficult times, Aoi, who had become a producer, tried to revive the heyday of this anime studio

a fairly realistic slice of life story, plus a pretty heart-wrenching drama, as well as comedy inserts that I feel fit to wrap read more

For good I will say that the film is extremely dynamic, it is not boring at any time, and it deals with the same issues with the same seriousness and maturity as the anime did, but this point weakens a bit with those musical numbers that personally I didn't like them, they seem totally expendable to me. As for the CGI animations, they seemed not so good, the texturing makes them notice too much and makes them look like a video game, I don't know if it's on purpose but I didn't like it very much, the same thing happened with the anime OVAs, yes read more
