Genre: Comedy, Slice-of-Life
Release date: October 2014
Studio: PA Works
|Synopsis: A story about 5 girls who chase their dreams – only to be exposed to the realities and all the ups-and-downs of daily life within the anime industry.|
Shirobako is an original anime series, although a manga adaptation will start serialisation in the monthly Dengeki Daioh in September. So there isn’t too much available in terms of story, but I’m leaning strongly in the slice-of-life direction – there will probably be some similarity to Servant x Service in terms of atmosphere.
While I wasn’t too enamoured of PA Works’s previous production (Glasslip) I don’t really see how they can go badly wrong with this particular series, but time will tell.
