While Servant x Service doesn't focus on the animation industry, if you've just finished Animation Runner and are looking for another comedy anime based around a woman in the workplace, check out Servant and see what you think.

Both anime have a strong focus on comedic workplace antics between co-workers, so people that liked the setting in either one should check the other one out.

If you liked the comedy and otaku culture in Animation Runner Kuromi 2 then you may want to check out Comic Party. While Comic Party focuses on doujinshi instead of animation, both have a similar feel to them.

Genshiken 2 and Animation Runner 2 have a few things in common. They both give us a great insight on how manga and anime is made. After all, it's the central theme in both of these anime. Furthermore they both add a good touch of comedy to the show without making it hyper or losing the focus on the subject. If you liked one your bound to like the other as well!
