I came into this curious about the animation process, and seeing the overall production depicted in a visual format helps with the impression even if parts can be dramatized. Yes, I have seen this OVA after watching my beloved Shirobako, and after finishing I can say that Animation Runner Kuromi does enough to stand on its own, even leaving me with a smile on my face.

The first thing I noticed was how over-the-top the show is, first in its rather dark humor depicting the harshness of the anime industry from the perspective of the production manager Kuromi. We see her coming in as read more

Ever have a life long job in mind? now, imagine getting it but you didn't realize the struggles that came with it. Moving on into the job the show demonstrates a compassionate female who works her butt off to not only get her job done but others. Her valiant efforts are recognized by her coworkers and little by little with their helpful aid they finish the job on time.

Artwork is outstanding! sure i could say it underrated but having seen this show makes me realize what the anime could have been if there 'was no direction'.

Characters are matched perfectly with their emotions. read more

Animation Runner Kuromi is cute, fun, and pretty hilarious too! The story begins when Kuromi starts her first day at work. Unfortunately for her, after her production manager faints from being overworked, she's forced to take his job and become the next production manager. This might not have been that bad if the animators weren't so lazy that they couldn't even be bothered to work at the studio most of the time. With a fast approaching deadline and barely any of the show animated, can Kuromi get it done in time?!?

The story itself is pretty basic. What really makes it shine read more
