Let's go nuts for Shirobako's new movie


What type of challenges will Musashino face in their next project?

Shirobako is one of those shows that got me invested with the characters and story through its run. This had to do with the way how the team portrayed the cast's struggles in creating an anime production. Thanks to it succeeding in making their success and hurdles resonate with the audience, it easily became one of the best titles that ended in 2015.

In a way, this was perfect since P.A. Works' projects before Shirobako were hit and miss category. As many of us yearned for a sequel, our wishes have been answered as a film got announced on the studio's Twitter page. At the moment, the only thing accompanying it is the staff and a great image of Aoi looking determined.

Judging by her expression, Musashino may be in for a huge ordeal in their next project. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if it was about them creating an anime film. If so, it's a great way to complement the sequel's format.

Since it was my top favorite show of 2015, my body is ready for this film. Based on its returning staff, it's going to be great to pull out the celebratory doughnuts again.
