Devoted otaku have yet again set out on another anime-centric pilgimage to the latest seichi of note, this time to bear witness to and compare the similarities between the new PV of impending glass artisan anime Glasslip and its real world equivalent – with the town likely to end up as a prosperous (or merely crowded) tourist attraction.

The 2nd PV of Glasslip from which the comparison photos were based upon:

While the comparison shots below quite resemble the PV, they also conveniently serve as a respectable collage of the town’s rather quaint scenery:

All this of course may have a point beyond merely saving a pittance on animators: the propensity of anime to spawn “seichi” in otherwise unremarkable backwaters which are then easily turned into lucrative tourist traps is now well understand even by local governments, with some doling out incentives in the hopes of attracting the next blockbuster – or at the very least a small horde of loose-walleted fans.
