Hello Crunchyroll! Miles here, and I’ve got an incredibly exciting contest for all of you today - a massive SHIROBAKO contest dedicated to each of the main girls in the show!

☆☆☆☆☆WINNERS☆☆☆☆☆

Congratulations to all of our winners! This contest exceeded my (already very high) expectations and I couldn't be prouder of everyone's entries. Look forward to hearing back from me over the course of the weekend!!

Aoi Miyamori - Objectification

Ema Yasuhara - kyuukir


Shizuka Sakaki - Cayla M. (Crunchyroll username unknown)

Misa Todo - fadlihaqim


Midori Imai - We have TWO winners. Since there were so many amazing storyboards and scripts, I decided to add one more prize pack!

Storyboard - azn_dichi


Script - EpcotServo


Raffle winners: Nitrios, AbSolitude44, and PazKyonBrook!

Congratulations to all of our winners!!!

==============

The contest window has closed! We'll be releasing a full list of winners on Friday, February 27th at 11:59pm Pacific.

Thank you so much for all of your entries! I've seen an incredible amount of love and effort and I can't wait to pick the winners with the help of the rest of the brand team.

Please do not edit any of your forum posts that include a contest entry starting at this time. Doing so may jeopardize your chances of winning.

==============

Possibly (definitely) the BEST anime this season, SHIROBAKO is the story about five girls who set out to make an anime series of their very own. The high school friends are two years into their careers, each pursuing a different part of anime production. The series confronts the harsh realities of life in the industry, but also shows that you can be successful if you work earnestly towards your dreams! If you haven’t seen it before, you definitely will want to check out the first episode right here:

For this contest, take the role of Aoi, Ema, Zuka, Misa, or Midori and contribute to a fictional anime about our very own Crunchyroll-hime! With five different ways to win, there’s something for everyone, no matter your skill set. Since this is secretly five contests in one, you are able to contribute up to one (1) entry per contest, for a total of five (5) entries, but you can only win once between all contests.



Each winner will one one (1) SHIROBAKO CD, three (3) months of Crunchyroll premium membership on their account, and an anime prize pack delivered to their door! This contest is open to Crunchyroll fans worldwide, so please enter! This contest will run until Monday, February 23rd at 11:59pm Pacific.

There will also be three (3) winners who will receive one (1) SHIROBAKO CD picked at random, so even if you’re not confident in your efforts, share them here!!!



Above are some reference pictures for Crunchyroll-hime. Remember, she’s got quite the personality (spunky, dutiful, perfect), so make sure that shines through in your work! Entries will be judged on how well they capture the spirit of the contest, as well as creativity and passion.



If you’d like to take on the role of Aoi Miyamori, you’re going to have to learn how to be a production assistant! Production assistants ensure that the episodes that they’re assigned stay on-task and on-time (among many, many, other things), so if you’d like to go Aoi’s route, create a mock schedule for an episode of the fictitious Crunchyroll-hime anime.

What meetings will you have to attend? What needs to get done in what order? BE CREATIVE! This can be done in any manner you think best suits the contest, but if you’re feeling lost, Aoi’s scheduling on SHIROBAKO's Japanese site is very organized and a good place to start.

To get an even better understanding for how hectic this job can be (and to get ideas for the kinds of meetings that you can include!) check out SHIROBAKO episode 15:

Ema Yasuhara takes the role of Key Animator at Musani, creating gripping key frames to anchor animation sequences. For this contest, you’re tasked with creating your own key frames of Crunchyroll-hime in action!

Key frames are not the final drawings you see during broadcast, so if you choose this route, you don’t need to add final lines or color, and can be in any style you deem appropriate. The best key frames convey a strong mood, and if you'd like to share a greater sense of motion, feel free to draw up to but no more than three (3) sequential key frames.



If you’ve always dreamed of being a voice actor, you’re in the same boat as aspiring seiyuu Shizuka Sakaki! To win here, send a 30-second recording of your best Crunchyroll-hime impression and sent it as an .mp3 to [email protected] If you’re not confident in your ability to emulate the Crunchyroll mascot, you’re welcome to record yourself as a character interacting with Hime-chan~!

At 5:30 in this episode, you can find one of Zuka’s auditions, if you want to get a good idea of what we're looking for:

Inspired by Ema’s drawings, Misa dove headfirst into the world of 3D animation. If you’ve got the skills and the software, share your 3D modeling skills with the world and create something that would be used in a Crunchyroll-hime anime! This can be a prop, a piece of clothing, a car tire, or even an entire character! Post screenshots of whatever you build from a few angles here in the forums for a chance to win!



The Dostoyevsky-loving Midori Imai is working hard to write scripts for anime. To win her route, you’ll need to do the same! Write a script using the proper formatting no longer than one (1) page (300 words max) about the misadventures of Crunchyroll-hime to score the prize pack. Midori is too busy with university and research so far to give the best examples in the show on how to do this, but you can also write a page of four (4) storyboards, which have shown up quite a bit on the screens of SHIROBAKO. Post your results here under a spoiler tag!

There you have it! I look forward to seeing all of your efforts and I hope you all watch and enjoy SHIROBAKO!!!

The Crunchyroll-hime one might be a bit hard since I am a male, but I will give it my best shot!

Maybe I'll join just for the fun of it... Miyamori is a little hard, but it's doable.

Not really good at drawing, so animation/CG are out.

Script writing and voice acting might be doable... but I don't know anything about CR's Hime-chan????

Considering Aoi is one of my all-time favorite characters, I feel I HAVE to do her contest. Looks like all my schedule spreadsheeting experience at work is going to come in handy for something important for once!

I'll also probably give the script-writing on a shot, since I've got the software to do it.

This seems like it'll be a lot of fun- but due to my lack of experience, I think it's best if I just observe what other people do and learn that way instead...

Shirobako is awesome! Where would we submit a key frame if we decided to do one? And does the key frame have to have crunchyroll-hime doing any particular action?
