P.A. Works has become the Pringles/Spam of anime. Canned product, and every time you pop the top on a new can you know exactly what the thing inside will look and taste like.

Does P.A. Works have just one character designer? Change the hair styles and colors and you get Aoi or Yoshino.

Also what's with the crossed-over bangs look that everyone in anime seems to be sporting these days? Is it popular in real-life, too?

I thought the best moment was when the spotted shark "smiled" at Fuuka. We only saw its eye, yet the expression was obvious.

I'm almost certain it's the same guy as Irozuku but I'm not so sure he worked on other shows. But yes, their shows tend to look the same.

Since they did stuff like Fairy Gone and Kamisama ni Natta Hi, I guess not...? I guess it is kinda like KyoAni's Hyouka and that show with guys in swimsuits, where they have one main character designer and maybe sometimes hires a new guy for one anime?

The only problem is that PA Works not only uses the same character designer a lot, but they use the same character designer for the same types of story.

episode 1:

as someone who owns 4 aquarium at home, this anime is beautiful to me in many ways.

a failed idol who wants to work in an aquarium center. Good start.

will be watching 2 or 3 more episodes before judging on drop or continue.

Oh goody. Okinawa is on my bucket list, ever since I researched what happened there in WW2 for one of my books.

Okinawa is also the home of my martial arts school, which is based off Naha-te, so I've definitely been curious to visit I'm thinking of keeping an eye out on notable spots shown in The Aquatope on White Sand this season and put together a virtual tour such that when the time for a visit comes, I can hit this and Harukana Receive's spots all at once!

I checked and the character designer for this series has only worked as a character designer once before on Irozuku. So no, they don't have only one character designer.

You know, when I see Okinawa scenery it reminds me a lot of a bunch of seaside Europian resorsts for some reason.

Absolutely! I think a few other anime also head to Okinawa, so it'll be nice to gather all of the spots and do one concerted tour to check everything out.

Nah, those have rounder faces and bigger eyes. Though I suppose being anime it's just been that way for a while. Though everyone does have that thin and borderline lanky look as in many a PA works thing.

I would say modern PA Works probably follows from either Shirobako or Nagi Asu designs. For example, yes Yoshino is just palette swapped Aoi. This show is closer to the later but less fishy. The old PA pointy chin style ~(True Tears/Hana Saku Iroha/Tari Tari) died out with Glasslip. I used to call it the Rin-Chin from ufotable's UBW even though it shouldn't relate to her at all.

As for crossed over bangs, I'll need more examples.

Traveling to where anime takes place is called Anime Holy Land Pilgrimage(アニメ聖地巡礼).

Not every place is doable, such as South Pole: Super Atragon, and A Place Further than the Universe.

Eureka Seven AO is not only set in Okinawa but delves into the unique politics of the place.

People running in the intro. Check.
Naive newcomer girl but actually has spunk. Check
Someone doesn't have enough money. Check.
Male characters immediately get ridiculed when appearing. Check
Fierce young independent woman stands up to slimy instigator. Check.
Violence involving Birds. Check
Scenery involving a place that needs tourism. Check.

Yea, it's a PA works anime.

Also that guy just reminds me of Ishigami. I don't even know his actual name.

Surprisingly, the one character that might end up being gay is the dude with no motivation. But he won't. PA works is probably never going to get out of their comfort zone when it comes to these kind of stories.

Same as KyoAni. Even their romance anime got tamer after 2010. P.A. Works at least had Canaan.
