    A White Box of Mysteries
    Shirobako is an anime about a "shirobako" referring 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.

    From P.A Works, Shirobako has awesome animation that won't disappoint. ...

    Slice of Life Bliss: Characters and Crises
    Shirobako has to be one of the biggest surprises for me. The slice of life look into a somewhat idealized anime industry setting is a treat on its own but what makes the show really shine is the exceptional characterization done for the lead character Miyamori Aoi. Miyamori-san is constantly put into high pressure situations where she simply must deliver results or the show is going to go off ...

    Another Gem full of Information
    Ever wonder what making anime is like? This gem will explain.

    Shirobako takes viewers on a ride through the anime industry with the help of five young girls that use their determination and cuteness to keep us entertained. This anime is largely a drama that goes into the daily life of making anime and overcoming problems that arise along the way. Our heroines are just normal people that love ...

    Such a surprising gem
    I find myself less and less interested in the interminable techno-fantasy sagas these days; they just don't seem to have much to say. Discovering 'Shirobako' was a delight. I love the fact that you see EVERYTHING, from the production team's color-coded spreadsheet to the arcane Windows software used by the colorists. There's such palpable love and care in this series; a clear sense that its ...

    600 minutes of Animeception
    I've been watching anime for a while and don't have any particular genres I'm totally into. And then, I heard about Shirobako which is an anime about making animes. What better way to learn about the 'behind the scenes' moments of anime production. In short, this show really bulldozed my initial thoughts on producing anime from scratch to its finale.

    To learn the many roles, within the many ...

    An absolutely wonderful experience!
    Watching SHIROBAKO has been an absolute pleasure, and I feel like I did when I first started watching anime. I'm not sure why I'm getting nostalgia; perhaps it's the novel idea they decided to go with? Most likely. Anyway, P.A. Works' last anime, Glasslip, did not capture me at all, yet reading the premise of the show I decided to give it a go and I can say, even though I'm only on episode 7, that ...

    An essential watch for any anime fan looking for a behind the scenes look at the industry.
    If you're looking for the dark horse of the season look no further. Stressful all-nighters, deadlines, working with sub-par employees, hesitation, and finding one's true self are just a few aspects of the anime industry that are brilliantly portrayed in Shirobako. The show does an exceptional job of working through the development and contributions of its large cast of characters who all have ...

    Enjoyable so far, looking forward to more episodes.
    I was interested in this series because I was keen to see how anime is created. It's great to understand how much time and effort goes into each episode, because as the audience, we only ever see the outcome of the production team's hardwork. So far, the series has been able to show the BTS procedures and the stress associated with it. It's down to earth, funny, and not at all your typical series. ...

    Something fresh and easy watching
    Shirobako's voice acting is great and animation is well done. Introducing every character and what they did in the studio is great but felt rushed, just my opinion anyway. The anime is definitely an easy watch if you something just to watch or relax too. Definitely interested on how it will develop and keep us hooked.
