Anime Review: Shirobako

Standard

Anime is the shorthand word the Japanese use to describe animation. Like films, animation is an art form that tells a story with many different elements coming together, composed by so many people who work on them, to entertain us. I have reviewed many kinds of anime on this blog, from many genres, critiques, and purposes. But of all the anime out there, there are only a few that describe exactly what the anime industry is all about!

Here is one such example of an anime that deals with the very subject that made it come into being. There are a lot of elements that go into creating any anime that we enjoy, and this series covers a great deal of the art that is involved in the making of anime while also telling a good story. And while I will attempt to talk about most of them in detail as I see fit, even I can’t cover everything this show has to offer.

Currently, it is my recommendation for Anime of the Year 2015.

So without further ado, here are my thoughts on Shirobako.

Great Moments in Fall 2014 Anime

Standard

The end of the Fall 2014 season, and the year, is upon us. And since many of my simulcasts have wrapped up, it’s time to once again share some of this season’s great moments. The following 12 moments are comprised of roughly 20 anime series I have watched, which don’t even make up half of what aired!

This season, I am doing things a little differently by including a theme for the season. Fall 2014’s theme is Stars and Flowers, courtesy of this season’s Yuki Yuna is a Hero. The moments shown here, in my opinion, reflect this theme.

These are the great moments (but not necessarily the greatest moments) of Fall 2014 anime. You can find all of these titles on Crunchyroll.
