Here, we discuss things we dislike about Shirobako.
I'll start: Zuka's only purpose in the show is literally her suffering. Most likely they wanted to do something for her, ran out of time and just said "Screw it, life sucks."
You can't have everybody become a successful super-anime-girl.
Having somebody try and fail just gives the show some realism it would otherwise lack.
Now the only question is how they resolve the situation.
Will she kill herself? Marry somebody and become a housewife? Will she resign to a job that she hates? Or will she retreat into a drug-fueled dreamworld where she is successful and pretty?
>PA Works never does S2
Do you really think there is a plaque in PA Works' office that reads "No second seasons allowed"? If there is more to show, and it is profitable, there is no reason why PA Works would not want a second season.
I'm really not getting the "Zuka wants to make it on her own!" message people are picking up. She just wasn't up to answering the inevitable questions about what roles she's had to a couple of drunken studio heads.

Well, they are "Progressive Animation Works" always trying new things and concepts. Shirobako is nothing special for them in terms of success so no reason to milk it.
Even less with a much bigger project already in the works.
How Miyamori took up most of the show, The start shown them all as a group together yet we only really see the struggles and happiness of Miyamori.
I'd would have preferred a shared POV.
Miyamori as the central focus is the only way it could have worked because her job is the most involved. The others have a more static position and we saw all the interesting stuff about them anyway.
I don't think we've had enough Midori.
I don't really understand why the other studios interpreted her studying something anime-unrelated as a negative.
Can somebody explain why you wouldn't hire somebody on those grounds?
>>Okay what is your degree in?
If you consider the degree to be a sign of a horrible person that's one thing.
But how is an unrelated degree worse than no degree at all?
At least it's proof she's capable of working for a degree.
A person without a degree can make the claim that they would love working in the position and it's their passion, but they haven't gotten the opportunity to go to college or get a degree.
The person with an unrelated degree is basically saying they either don't care enough about what they were studying to go one with it, or they didn't care enough about what they are applying for to spend 4 years working at it.

I can see how you could interpret it that way, but I consider it more of a statement that you've considered your options and that this is after all what you truly want to do.
Damn. I just had another idea.
Considering the job market, it might just be that the applicant simply failed to get a job in whatever line of work they really wanted and is only applying because they have no other choice.
I guess there is more to this than I thought.
>No ecchi moments.
I would have loved the casual panty shot. Especially Aoi's.
