Yes, this one is a bit farfetched. But there's similar vibe in portraying something as dull as everyday work and turning it into piece of entertainment.

An optimistic, dream-driven girl begins working a thankless job only to discover that the field is not what it seems. She then sets out to discover what makes the work so alluring to her, making new friends and having a few laughs along the way. A healthy balance of drama and comedy alongside some of the most unique careers out there.

Despite the difference in their setting, both Shirobako and Planetes explore similar topics: starting out in a new workplace, full of new rules to learn, mistakes to make and co-workers to meet. In both anime, the focus is on everyday worklife, not large plots to save the earth from destruction. The enemies are deadlines and broken equipment, not the big bad of the week. You will follow the inexperienced lead through her experiences at the workplace, see her question her purpose in life and, finally, find fulfillment at work.
