lol, I find "girl overcomes cruel [male-dominated] world in a triumphant fashion" to be a running theme in their shit, but I can't say I object to it. They really do have good female characters or as I read in the PA thread, they're some kind of "waifu factory" Also, I asked Pocari to find a good shot of Wakana running, but he failed as a fan so there will be a slight break in the action, though at least I get to reference Saori Hayami. (Who despite appearing in so many PA shows, didn't show up!)
And that's another thing about a lot of their shows. Success isn't a dramatic battle thing at times, but it's something that comes more subtlety, one brick at a time. So in that regards, Shirobako really captured it all well.
Truly I am serious, I was linked that OP from someone and decided that was a great OP. I mean it wasn't some nano.ripe shit after all. Though Glasslip's OP is good too I just don't want to be seen as a PAW fanboy for voting it to many times as it isn't that exceptional and since as you know Glasslip's quality is questionable despite Yanagi almost won female character for me by default, until I remembered the Madoka movies count xD I didn't watch Nagikara though because I wasn't too into the designs as well as Okada and me having a strained relationship at the time. Next year, I would say Shigatsu's OP is clearly winning but we'll see.
