Original TV anime 'Sakura Quest' Announced by P.A. Works. Coming Spring 2017.


Anime studio P.A. Works announced a new original television anime titled Sakura Quest on Wednesday. The anime will premiere in April. The anime's official website describes the anime as the third in P.A. Works' "working" series about people and their jobs, after Hana-Saku Iroha and Shirobako.




Plot Summary

The story centers on five girls who work in the tourism bureau of their small provincial town. The town revives its "micro-nation" tourism program, which originated from a nationwide movement during Japan's bubble economy period, and hires the five girls as "monarchs" (tourism ambassadors). The anime will depict one year in their jobs in the tourism industry, and show how they change and grow.

During the bubble economy in Japan, a micro-nation fad arose, where regions in Japan declared themselves "micro-nations" to revive tourism and industry in their region, starting with the "Shin Yamatai Koku" nation in 1977. The micro-nations coordinated with local governments and tourism bureaus, and some even had their own chambers of commerce. At its height, there were over 200 such micro-nations in Japan.

With this being by P.A. Works, at the very least you know it's going to look great. Whether it ends up being great like Shirobako or a bust like Glasslip, only time will tell.

No relation to the Sakura series of VNs, though the title certainly sounds like it belongs there.

If the guys responsible for those games had any input in this it would certainly be different I'll give it that. And the whole female cast would be undeniably not virgins.
