posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The staff for the all-new Shirobako Movie (Gekijō-ban Shirobako) project announced at the KyoMAF event in Kyoto on Saturday that Ayane Sakura will voice a new character in the film named Kaede Miyai.
The film will open in Japan in spring 2020.
The returning staff includes director Tsutomu Mizushima, animation studio P.A. Works, series script supervisor Michiko Yokote, character designer Ponkan8, animation character designer and chief animation director Kanami Sekiguchi, and production company Infinite. The film also includes a returning cast.
The original Shirobako television anime focuses primarily on Aoi Miyamori, a production assistant at a fictional anime studio called Musashino Animations. The story follows the daily office life and problems that arise in an animation studio, and the workflow in making an anime. Parallel to that, the show also focuses on Miyamori's friends, who all work or are aiming to work in the anime industry: a key animator, a CG animator, an aspiring voice actress, and a scriptwriter.
