I am not going to compare this to Bakuman, a masterpiece that ended up teaching me a lot about the manga world. I’ll just say that this, like Bakuman, might just teach us quite a bit about the anime industry. I mean, aren’t you a little curious about how it all works? I know I am.
The artwork is pretty decent. I really haven’t seen anything special so far, but it doesn’t look bad. It’s weird that Warner Brothers, an American studio, helped make this. They don’t work on anime that often…
Anyway, the story is key here. It shows us what it takes to create and air anime, which is something I find quite interesting. Of course, I am going to have to blindly trust that this information is somewhat accurate. This could all be wrong for all we know.
Do you want to know more about anime and how it’s made? Watch this. I know I am going to.
Plot Summary: A “shirobako” refers to the white box into which a finalized tape of a film is put, full of the effort of everyone who worked on it. Five girls have their eyes set on getting in a white box as they try to find success in the anime industry through writing, production, and voice acting.
