Mitsuki Ikuta works for the Houchiku Corporation, making movies. To all who know her, she is perceived as being a very infantile woman, still wearing childish fashions. A fan of the detective movie genre, she suddenly finds herself chosen to be the main producer of a new film—but it's a "hero movie" (a genre generally considered childish). Determined to succeed, regardless, she takes on the job.

Honestly, this isn't a show you should take seriously, although it has some parts that can be considered wise.

It excels at panty shots and at showing the life of sexist staff working in a TV studio. But it has a pleasant feel and it's not hard to watch, so you can play it while doing something else in your room. You can see that the staff had fun in making the anime, which gives it a 'not fake' vibe.

What this anime does different, and the most interesting part about it is it relates to other anime from the studio. The story is about a producer ...

It's not terrible.
But, it's not good, either.
It's "Meh.".

That pretty much sums up Hit Wo Nerae. An anime that is clearly dated at this point, with its copious amounts of needless panty shots and juvenile attempts at humor. This is the kind of anime that came out when it was still funny to flip up girls skirts and smack them on their butt. I'm no puritan feminist, but even I see how old and played out that kind of fanservice humor is and this old anime plants its flag right in the center of that kind of comedy.

But, Hit Wo Nerae, I don't think ...

SHIROBAKO: SMALLER, SHORTER & CUT to 10 minutes anime version.

Cosprayers was a shitshow...but the inner workings and the production side of things IS more interesting than the show itself.

Hit wo Nerae! is actually the last of the "Cosprayers" anime with Love Love? being the second and while that one looked at the casting, screenwriting and directing side of the shitshow of Cosprayers, then Hit wo Nerae! looks at the production side of things with Mitsuki Ikita voiced by Mamiko Noto (who was LA's favourite character from Love Love?), so it was in LA's favour that the anime was gonna be good right?

Well much like Love ...
