And Nagi no Asukara. This and more so Shirobako were really great shows. Their other stuff not so much. Hanasaku Iroha was alright, Tari Tari I still haven't finished, but I guess it's alright. And yeah, that's pretty much it.

Does anyone remember Red Data Girl? Because I certainly didn't and just checked what PA worked on and it was there. What was it even about?

Uchouten Kazoku
I forgot that show existed, I didn't even realize they worked on it. It was good though.

Alright they produce some decent shows. I really liked uchouten kazoku. I never really got interested in Nagi no Asukara but the character designs were really nice. Tari Tari was pretty meh I watched like half of it before getting bored of it.

Her spirit went to the past to warn her about the danger because she would be captured and used by evil people for her powers. It was a nice show, pretty underrated.

Jeremiah Bailey

All of their shows up until Glasslip were at least decent. Some, like HanaIroha and UK were absolutely amazing. Faggots dropped RDG too soon as well.
Glasslip was just fucking nothing although the OST is beautiful.

P.A. has gotten worse though. NNA was nice but not as good as their previous shows, Glasslip is obvious and while Shirobako was good I'll still have to agree with the other user. It is absolutely overrated and considered to be some kind of masterpiece for taking on a different kind of setting/theme.
Haruchika was garbage at the beginning but massively improved towards the end. It had some of the best P.A. scenes and Chika is just cute.
Kuromukuro is great so far, they're taking their time and aren't rushing things. Nice pacing, interesting characters and you're not being told everything.

So basically, they're a bit bland but they do mostly good work. They have no USP like Shaft or KyoAni, but they manage to produce decent to good shows, with a few misses inbetween.

Now I know what I was trying to remember, fucking Charlotte. That was a fucking disaster of a show. Also, fuck Ayane, I wish I could strangle her so that I never have to hear her voice again.

Josiah Long

The last episodes, not the the majority of the show. The episode with the dead woman was amazing and the relationship between Naoko and Chika was good.

It was Funimation encoded. You should see what they did to Sansha Sanyou.

Logan Sullivan

Not really no. UK and HanaIroha are very good shows, way above average. Tari Tari was good for what it set out to do and True Tears is still one of MX favorites for various reasons. They used to make above average/very good shows. Now they kind of go from weak or medicore to good and back to weak again. P.A. has the wrong kind of consistency nowadays.

PA works is ok. They should stop trying what KyoAni does though. Even angel beats looked awkward as fuck even with the rotoscope.

inb4 K-ON's performances were purely rotoscoped

Aaron Davis

Taking risks and making bad shows aren't mutually inclusive. P.A. works takes risks because a high percentage of their shows in recent years are completely original, especially compared to other studios. Which means they literally have nothing to carry their show's sales or success except the quality of the show itself and to a lesser degree their own prestige as a studio that consistently has good animation quality.

Original
Charlotte
Shirobako
Glasslip
Angel Beats

Hanasaku Iroha
Tari Tari
True Tears*

Adaptations
Another
Red Data Girl
Haruchika
True Tears*

True Tears kind of falls in both categories because it's still technically based on the game.
Probably should be counted as an original work though.

What you notice here is that the majority of their contemporary work is all original; furthermore their most successful shows are their original series as well. Even if you don't like the shows, the studio deserves respect for being able to achieve that level of success with such so many original series.

Compare to a studio like Ufotable. Nearly all their success has been based on the Type-Moon series which has a huge established viewer/readership and is basically guaranteed to print money (even DEEN FSN was financially successful). When they try doing something even remotely risky animate God Eater, it fucking flops. Now they're adapting Touken Ranbu which is also guaranteed to be successful based on how much disposable income fujoshits have proven to have.

PAW is a studio for adults since they don't adapt so many LNs or manga like other studios. Not everyone is mature enough to appreciate what they make.

Zachary Myers

When it took Angel Beats, Nagiasu, and Hanasaku Iroha and made them all successful shows despite being completely original.

If you look at trends in animation. The amount of adaptations compared to original series has steadily risen in the past two decades. Literally anything from shitty LNs to mobage can get turned into an anime now.

That's not so risky.

Such as? Honestly though P.A. series are good, they don't use new or experimental animation techniques.

If you like the studio that's okay, but saying it takes risks just because it doesn't make adaptations is stupid.

Parker Powell

Taking risks means do something different not just doing original works that appeal to the same audience.

In that sense they almost never take risks. Even Shirobako had a cast of cute, innocent, girls that never date.
