I like how in part 2 of the show Ema has gotten to be a helpful senpai too. She went through a trial by fire and came out the better for it. She will help her new little sidekick well, I am sure of it

Nobody likes you.
Everybody hates you.
You're gonna lose.

Smile, you fuck.


The only way this show can get better is if new guy's chronic inability to show respect and give a gently caress leads to no less than Tarou ripping him a new rear end in a top hat.

This was a good episode, like most episodes of shirobako, which are good.

Tarou being just a butthole instead of a gently caress up is weird and satisfying character development.

I can't tell if this is leading up to that dude being poo poo canned or leading up to him turning into someone who isn't a knob.

Ah man, yeah. I get that 'office drone' is probably near the bottom of the pile in terms of healthy jobs, but you'd still think a guy who bakes tasty treats for a living would find a bit tougher to loving liquify the pounds like that.

Also, I legit cracked up when Kinoshita asked "WHATEVER HAPPENDED TO OUR FAT ALLIANCE?!"
Dude doesn't get high off his own supply, clearly.

I will legitimately be totally okay with anime shifting from high school moe bullshit to young working adult moe bullshit on the strength of this show. Probably.

I too hope workplace moe become the wave of the future. There was even that short anime about a newlywed couple. I just want to see more grownup environments in my shows that aren't paramilitary forces made by people who probably haven't held a firearm in generations.

Hes getting so little screentime that I would guess hes gonna get poo poo canned, assuming hes not some insiduous double agent whos there solely to gently caress poo poo up.

That is my hope, but he's literally been not at the studio til the last ep so hard to know. definitively. It IS anime so I sometimes have trouble leaning on the obvious answer (throw him out on his rear end).

Uhhhhhh, no. Honda is now the best wife in the show. He was already cute, responsible, determined, dedicated, kind, and friendly. Now that he's not stressed and he is doing something that he loves, those qualities can only be magnified!! Patissier wife!!!

In retrospect, yeah it sucked that he was stressed. But before they dropped all that on us I definitely wasn't thinking "hmmm there's a bigger reason behind him being fat" and just liked him being Director's nagging wife/jailer/fat patissier. The weight loss was just weird and abrupt and he also wasn't dressed in his endearing Honda style.

With this episode ending, I guess you shouldn't be surprised with what you get when you align yourself with Studio Taitanic. I did like the old drunken art guy though for how curmudgeonly he was. Also yaaaaay Yano-san is back~

Yay for Yano being back!

The newbie voice actress is adorable, she's just so tense in the pre-recording meeting

I stand by my assessment that super shy moe girl is probably somewhere on the autism spectrum.

To make more connections with GuP. The main character in that series was also voiced by a newcomer voice actor.
