What is your review of shirobako?
Shirobako is an anime that is “just right”. It breaks one’s expectations without betraying them.

The series is a force to be reckoned with and I could easily recommend it to anyone, especially to those in need of a surprise.

The girls of Shirobako are in their 20’s and yet they are far more appealing (and yes, more cute) than the vast majority of teenage characters. Maybe that could be my own oldness speaking, but I’d like to see more variety and more 20-somethings like there are in Shirobako. There’s far more that can be done with adult characters.

There is none of the usual ‘sameface’ phenomenon that plagues most anime with a moe art style (which Shirobako most definitely has), and the backgrounds are often filled with detail (like an anime figure sitting on a desk to the side) which makes having a wandering eye recommended.
