Episode 2

This last scene kinda caught me off guard:


Solid episode overall despite some disagreements during their discussion. The director is quite a character with enthusiasm in this show for his ideas. I'm still getting used to the large cast of characters. Decent OP song too.

I understand that, that scene was supposed to be like a metaphor but i mean really? But man that was a bit cheesy even for a PA works show. I mean logically, if the director of a show was making such ridiculous requests in real life ill bet he would be fired in a heart beat or just forced to use the original.

Anyhow, reality aside, anyone else feel that this is a bit too confusing? The large cast is making it hard to actually see any character development outside of the main girl. Its also making it hard to figure out which are the original characters from the anime club and which are just characters that work in the industry.

This show amuses me. An anime about making anime. I grin just thinking how much rl experience went into each episode. Naturally probably exaggerated for comedic effect, but still . . real experiences.

Episode 2

I was kind of frustrated this episode. Maybe it's because I felt the frustration of the staff? The director made them redo that whole scene again just for a different facial expression? If I was part of the staff, I would have shot myself right then and there lol.

More Inception fun but noticed today with the OP in it's slot that there's a top spinning on her dashboard. Sure the show so far is overflowing with characters but for what they are presenting it's needed. What would really be out there is if P.A. actually went ahead and did a Exodus show for a season as a followup. That or the one from the audition script of "I Think My Harem is Slowly Falling Apart, But I Might Just Be Imagining It." which I'd imagine is just a bunch of harem show MC's sitting around talking with each other about their problems in a cafe.

Not really. Even excluding the Japanese societal imperative of following the instructions of your boss it's not uncommon in entertainment for re-cuts or out right re-dos if the director or producer feels strongly enough about it and it's within the budget / time constraints. And once the director was able to sway enough of the staff to agree that was all he needed.

And even if it hadn't been able to happen in time for the broadcast release it would probably have made it into the Blu-ray release which is often when they go in and clean up things they ran out of time to fix due to the broadcast schedule.

I'm not sure I believe the director would get another show if his previous one was so widely derided. That said, I'm curious to see an episode of Jiggly Jiggly Heaven!

This is making me wonder about the reality of making an anime...

Does anyone know of any books that break-down the process of making a 21st century anime series? (Like how The Illusion of Life breaks-down western pre-digital hand-drawn features)

Another show that I was barely going to check out but seem to be enjoying.
Though the original description of the 5 girls making their way in the industry does seem to be lost so far.

I really did enjoy the scene where the director was explaining the whole background story for his character that was all in his head and not in the actual show. Anime Inception!
