Happy times are off-screen. Shirobako is for suffering.
So in the end, we're just gonna see Aoi use her connections to bring all of her friends to Musani. Diesel didn't even do anything and is still in school and she still landed a job right away.
Diesel did good work on both Exodus and the new show they are doing.
Would she have gotten the job or even the research opportunities without Oi's connections? No, but Diesel was the one who volunteered in the first place and kicked ass.
That's basically what you need to succeed in this economy. Connections, skill, and hard work.
They each have a handful of roles (including really minor parts like "store clerk" or "high school student B"). Zuka and Ema's VAs are the only ones who've had main roles besides their characters.
Also, Misa's VA is an animator at Oh! Production, apparently.
>Also, Misa's VA is an animator at Oh! Production, apparently.
It doesn't seem like she can really do anything for Zuka, though. Diesel was a special case because Aoi herself was involved in setting research so she got a friend to help, but as a production assistant she doesn't seem to do anything related to voice actors. She didn't even know who was auditioning for Aerial Girls and even if she had there's probably nothing she could have done that would have caused any of the people making the decision to look more favourably on Zuka.
Well I think if the Director finds out that Aoi is friends with Zuka, it could make her more likely to be hired in an upcoming role. I mean she was shortlisted for that part and didn't get it only because she was fighting for it against two VAs that were much more experienced in a role that they felt needed that experience especially. It definitely sounds like they would be willing to hire her in the future.
Director had almost no say in which VAs got hired, though. Even if Aoi had introduced him to Zuka and he knew her and really wanted her for the part he'd still probably have been overruled.
Well yeah, she had no chance in getting the Catherine role. But it wasn't only the director that liked her. I'm just saying that now she is on the radar, and it appears that at least some of them liked her audition, knowing that she is friends with Aoi and Midori would only help her cause. I think that it is only a matter of time.
Old school as fuck.
Also, this guy looks like Suige-san.
This was from the previous thread. No more bully,
Why is this allowed
I expect Aerial Girls' author to be a bro and really wanted to work close with the anime studio but his editor is keeping him in his basement to make more work.
Until Aoi crashes down on that basement at a whooping 50km/h to save him
>delivering late keyframes
I don't know if it's supposed to be a plot point. Her being a good driver is probably just a part of her being a competent go-getter, and the fancier stuff she does while driving might just be because driving alone form one place to another is the closest thing to me-time she has with he packed schedule.
yes she does. she just likes girls more.
Well, from what I can tell, that guy from IG staff still haunts her. And now one of his co-workers is there, and from what I can tell he's going to try and fuck Aoi up. Seriously, what kind of ancient grudge does that guy have.
Bias toward a sex doesn't necessarily reflect one's sexual preference. This doesn't necessarily mean she isn't gay, mind, but I don't think you should take Hiraoka's statement to mean she's some kind of man-hater.
In all likelihood, she probably feels greater empathy with girls because she knows how rough it is out there for them in the industry (and in general, particularly in Japan). At least, that's how I interpreted it.
Hiraoka's probably the type to think "Oh, she doesn't like me. Must be because she's a fucking lesbo dyke who hates all men" instead of considering that maybe no one likes him for a reason.
I don't see why everyone immediately interprets the new guy as sinister. At most he's just kind of irritated that someone with much less experience is in a higher position.
Best end is that he introduces Aoi to Tomigaya socially and they get to take their racing rivalry to the next level
Because he seemed like a dick. Maybe he is actually a good guy with lacking social skills, maybe he's shy and gets awkward around strangers and gives a bad impression because of this, but he definitely seemed like a dick.
When Hiraoka's trolling pushes Aoi to the limit. Yano will save her cute kouhai and also humble Hiraoka, allowing him to make his face turn and become a valued member of Musani.
Being a bit of a dick doesn't mean he's immediately out to undermine Aoi and fuck her over though. He's a dick in passing but I don't think he's outright malevolent.
If I'm in Aoi's position, I don't give him the benefit of the doubt honestly.
Best case scenario, he's an unpleasant dick to work with. Worst case scenario, he's coming after my job.
She struggles in ways I can relate to, and triumphs in ways I can only aspire to.
She's also packed full of cute quirks and is in general a very pleasant, sensible person.
I want to drink with her, help her unwind with a massage, tuck her drunk ass into bed, and sleep on her floor.
>She struggles in ways I can relate to, and triumphs in ways I can only aspire to.
This is the central part for me. I can relate to her wondering about her future and envying those with clear dreams and goals. I can't claim to be anywhere near as hard-working as her, but she's a relatable character. A character with, you know, character rather than an archetype. She is also cute, which is obviously a pro.
