Shirobako 7/10 - I have mixed feelings on this series. I thought it would be like Bakuman but it's not really the case. Shirobako is more about the collective process in making anime whereas Bakuman was more character focused and showed the effects of the industry had on the individuals and thier lives. Shirobako has suh a large cast character development was at a minimum. Anyway heres what i liked: The animation is fantastic as alway with PA works they are right up there with Kyoani IMO Diverse cast and interations are what drives the show Its a window into the creative process and i'd imagine this was a labour of love for PA works Really shows what absolute graft is put into a project and it was interesting in places Its pretty unique and I've not see anything like it What I didnt like: The stupid Moe blob with the speach of a 2 year old. Utterly pointless character You never really see much proper drama or the effects of such a labour intensive job has on peoples home life or relationships The Don Don Donuts catchphase was super cringeworthy Most of the men in the show are either oddballs or idiots Its very boring in places which made it harder to get to the good parts The show finished strongly which is why I gave it a 7/10 (was on a 6 before the last two episodes). It's not a show I would revisit but it was worth watching as something different and I can certainly see why people love it.
