An anime film for Shirobako was announced at the Musashi-Sakai x Shirobako Spring Festival on Saturday, the third anniversary event of the franchise. The announcement noted that it will be a brand new film, and will continue the story from the original anime. This marks the second time P.A. Works would produce a sequel, following Uchouten Kazoku 2 last April. Staff members from the TV series are set to return for the film project.

Directed by Tsutomu Mizushima (Genshiken episode director), Shirobako is P.A. Works' second work-themed original anime after Hanasaku Iroha in 2011. The 24-episode series aired in Fall 2014, and was simulcast by Crunchyroll. Two special episodes were also included with the third and seventh Blu-ray and DVD volumes in February and July 2015.

Kenji Sugihara (Clockwork Planet series composition) and Mizutama drew a two-volume manga adaptation in Kadokawa's Dengeki Daioh magazine between September 2014 and November 2015. Shueisha published the Shirobako: Introduction novel adaptation under its Jump j-Books imprint in January 2015. The Dai 3-hikou Shoujo-tai short manga by Takeshi Nogami based on the fictional series The Third Girls Aerial Squad within the anime was distributed at Comiket 88 in August 2015.

Sentai Filmworks licensed the anime for North American distribution in November 2014 and released the series on two Blu-ray and DVD volumes in February and March 2016. The anime is also licensed by Madman Entertainment in Australia and New Zealand, and was released on a single DVD volume in December 2016.

Shirobako won the 20th Kobe Animation Awards in 2015, the 2016 Tokyo Anime Awards for Animation of the Year, and ranked second under the animation category in Yomiuri Shimbun's second Sugoi Japan Awards in 2016. The series was the only TV production to be selected by the Jury Committee in the animation division at the 19th Japan Media Arts Festival.

The series was pretty good but a sequel always seemed redundant to me, anyway I'm happy at this news and I hope it turns out to be good.

It'd be pretty cool if the movie focused on anime movie production. Whatever it's about though, I'm sure it will be good. This show was really enjoyable (and informative) so I'm looking forward to more content.

Very nice, Shirobako is one of the more beloved recent original works.

Looking forward to the sequel no matter how long it takes to come out.

One of the best news, if not the best news I've seen so far, OMG. One of the best things I've watched, so happy to know this! Sad that it's not a sequel TV show, but I'll gladly take anything at this point.

I'm so excited!

No wonder. It's not just you. The anime was 6~6.25/10 at best during the first half, and 7~7.25/10 almost entirety of the second half. It achieved greatness near the end and deservedly became AOTY. I have never seen a more satisfying finale to an anime like the way Shirobako ended.

does the drama still as intense as early? might continue if they are not as boredoom as before...

Considering how popular the show became in Japan, I think it was inevitable that they would make a sequel to Shirobako. Although I would prefer a second TV season, a movie is still great though. =)

The drama included, it comes off as tedious throughout almost the entire anime but, it pays off in the end exactly because of the way it's structured. It's really worth it.

We see hundreds of anime that start off with a lot of promise and then fall flat at the end when it really matters. Shirobako is one of the very few with an exception which is the other way around, an anime that starts off slow but ends remarkably. The ending of the anime is exactly what distinguishes a great anime from good anime. Some even may consider it as a masterpiece and I won't argue with them.

well, my problem is with drama, soo, if i need to watch them until end, maybe i would still stick to my manga backlog...

What i heard about this series sequel maybe a year or two ago. P.A. works already had material for season 2. but because Director of this series (Tsutomu Mizushima) had very full schedule, they didn't want to take a risk, made a sequel with different director.

So, with this annoucement and we will have same director, i am glad and i want to see more about our 5 main character despite it's a movie

Not really. They announced the movie has been greenlit and entered production so pre-production is already done. 3 Years is an average production timespan for a movie so it's totally in line with announcements.

Shirobako sure was awesome anime. But I doubt this move will work out. Feels like milking imo. Still, I'll gladly watch it.

Ah man, this is great news. I always wished it got a second season but maybe this film can pave the way for that. Either way more content for Shirobako is good and I'll take it.
