Ai Kunogi is one of the supporting characters in the SHIROBAKO anime series. She joined Musashino Animation as an in-between animator when producing Exodus!. She later promoted as a key animator just before Third Aerial Girls Squad start producing.

Appearing Edit

Ai has short brown hair, with an ahoge, and wears conservative clothes. Her typical outfit is a collared dress in two shades of brownish-green. She really looks like she is younger like 14 years of age but she is actually 18

Character Edit

Ai's dominating character trait is her compassionate and gentle-hearted personality. Even when she is alone with Ema Yasuhara, to whom she becomes very attached to almost like a daughter, Ai can typically get out only a single syllable before seizing but she can do sign language very well and she is only somewhat verbal with the people around her and relies on Ema to work out what complete thought she is trying to communicate. Because Ema is in fact amazingly good at doing this, she tends to become Ai's "interpreter" with others, and she tends to be very compassionate about being an animator,Ema's actions show a desire to improve herself, both in her craft as an animator, and a person.

Background Edit

Trivia Edit

  • Ai means love in Japanese, and Kunogi means Enthusiasm in Japanese, so Ai Kunogi closely means Enthusiastic Compassion for something or someone.
  • Ai is working on her social skills and tries to communicate..which shows that Ai is Autistic although she has not told them, neither has anyone pointed it out.
