Will this be as terrible as Glasslip?


Probably not because there's no romance in it, PA Works does a shit job with any anime with romance in it.


Yep, ano hana and nagi Asu were both terrible.

I'm hoping this will be comedy, slice-of-life, relaxing and no teen romance drama.

No teen romance drama? I'm in.

Yeah, looks like Shirobako would be an anime studio. And the girls would be VAs...

Hopefully they're as good as Koe de Oshigoto (which was abruptly ended at 2 OVA eps lol).

Just saw the PV on ANN and, well, it's been a while since a preview managed to make me *uninterested* in a show. It looks utterly boring, the whole thing.

It's like I'm looking at NagiAsu's characters' faces on different bodies.

An anime about making anime. Why do I have the feeling that this will share Glasscrap's fate?

The name of the animation studio where the girls work, my call, is SHIROBAKO (white box). Just a hunch though lol.
