Aoi will never forget how she felt the day her high school animation club's labor of love was shown at the cultural festival. The sense of awe and the feeling of accomplishment that came with completing their very first project are exactly what encouraged Aoi and her club mates to enter the animation industry in the first place. But two years later Aoi has graduated, and now that she works as a production assistant for a big-name animation studio, the daunting reality of her job has somewhat diminished her enthusiasm. Despite the long hours and the punishing schedule, Aoi still hopes to fulfill the promise she and her club friends Ema, Shizuka, Misa, and Midori made: to one day reunite and make a real animated feature of their own as professionals!

Why You Should Watch This:

Contrary to what it may seem to be in the first five minutes, Shirobako is not an anime about cute girls doing cute things. It is in fact a slice-of-life depicting the trials and tribulations of working in the anime industry on top of having your own dreams. The characters are realistic, the drama develops naturally, and the comedy is on-point. This is not why I'm recommending this anime, however.


The main reason I'm recommending Shirobako is because it gives a fairly accurate portrayal of the anime industry while being entertaining. It humanizes the people behind the scenes and allows for a greater understanding of why certain choices might be made. I believe that watching Shirobako will allow for greater appreciation of the medium in a way only one intimately familiar with the processes can appreciate.

Looking how it ended, they're doing two new series next year (I loled at "That Bandit Manga, Two Piece")! I think its possible for a second series...
