Shirobako Episode 24 Discussion
Mar 26, 2015 7:53 AM
THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
And ahh, all the members are gathered at the discussion tables this episode. Really nice to see them working whether it's to review the animation quality, typing, etc.
Looks like their hard work paid off though. Way to go team. Quite interesting to see Aoi take the stage with a speech. Be proud girl!
Damn, now I'm going to miss this show ;_;

I think I caught a Yurikuma Arashi reference:

I just noticed some very interesting news about a follow-on series to Shirobako
that has just been greenlit:
Anime About the Making of Shirobako Greenlit
The most recent issue of Kadokawa’s Monthly Dengeki Daioh announced
that production on the new anime series Bakoinai has been greenlit.
Bakoinai depicts the staff at studio ‘D.A Works’ as they work to create
the anime Shirobako, which follows five girls as they work to succeed in
the anime industry.
“Creating an anime about the process of creating an anime about creating
anime presents a very unique challenge,” director Mizushima Tsutomu tells
Anime Maru. . . . . .
See here for the entire article:
Those of you who are not regular readers of the anime-related online magazine
"Anime Maru" maybe also be interested to know that . . .
. . . Anime Maru is fake, satirical anime news. So don't believe a word of it.
Anime Maru is kind of like "The Onion" of the world of anime.

Wow, this episode seemed like an hour long, and I mean that in a good way. The final rush to finish the last episode, so much work to do, so wonderful how this animation captures all that feeling.
All the characters step it up. The great chase at the end, the thrills the chills the excitement. The flagrant breaking of the law.

How come Segawa was alone there?
But anyway, the people attending the party seemed very happy. Everything went all right...
I cannot help but re-watch this final episode again and again.
I love the scene of Lucy running and Kunogi gradually becoming communicative.
By the way, YACHIGUSA Kaoru (1930 - ), who was referred at the studio when Aria and Lucy giving suck to a baby cow, is an actress. She is supposed to be a model of MATSUMOTO Raiji's beautiful female characters design of his manga.

Wow that was an amazing finale! Ema has learned to have more confidence in herself, even asking to do a certain scene! She's able to handle more work while maintaining the quality too. Misa is also doing great at her job, telling her boss that she could work on a part that sounded like a lot of work. Shizuka has been getting roles, even if it's just Girl C. Aoi running all the way to the broadcasting station was praiseworthy too. I love the whole part where everyone was rushing to deliver the tapes, so exciting yet funny. I laughed several times throughout that part. So Okitsu was their wild-card, and wow, she's notorious apparently for her speeding. That's some driving skills she has. Amazing.
Oh and of course Dai-chan. Seems like there are no problems with him anymore, his years of experience shows as he had taped everything at an inhuman speed. "Betsu ni." :D And also how he knows a lot of people in the industry. Still dislike his earlier attitude, but I'm happy to see him grow and learn to like anime production again. I saw that little fist pump of his. I think he's found his place to stay at Musani. Which also reminds me, Endou being surprised that Segawa was working next to him for the rest of the production XD Also seeing him and Shimoyanagi having fun conversing at the party was nice. Reminds you how far everyone has come, and the journey we witnessed in Shirobako. The speech Miyamori gave at the end had me crying, because I felt the accomplishment that they all went through, not just with the Third Aerial Girl's Squad, but watching the characters grow and overcome both personal and situational difficulties.
Overall, this was most of all, a really entertaining show that was also pretty educational regarding the process of animation production. We knew that the anime industry is a hectic and stressful one, but Shirobako allows us to further appreciate the work and effort the people involved put in. Sure it's probably not completely realistic (workplace wise?), but it was still a fun ride and we still learned about the staff and process of it, and also the difference and difficulties with an original anime and an anime adaptation. I also really ended up loving all the characters, despite the extremely large cast. All the characters felt natural and realistic, and each had defined personalities. I even ended up liking Hiraoka. It's so hard to say goodbye to Shirobako...I really hope for a second season, though this season was more than satisfactory, and they did at least show that Shizuka is starting to get somewhere. I want to give PA Works one giant hug for this brilliant and entertaining show. I will definitely support it and buy the BDs :)

It's funny that this very original story doesn't have a lot of attention..
That last scene
That Editor become a Photographer
Goddamn I 've knew it since 3rd episode that this show has an unique storytelling!
Great character development
Great amount of story that packed greatly well in 26 episodes
MAL Users hate him!
His discoveries in dredging mountains of lists inside a site revealed a huge shock of understanding the history of Japanese Motion Picture in just few lists. Read his huge yet simple lists and discover how you can also increase your knowledge in japanese timelines by looking at branches he listed in!
Absolutely worth it!
see it for yourself.

I don't know, but I felt the show lost its greatness in its second half. Maybe it was because more of its new humour felt really out of place for me (the shy girl), or the show takes its jokes too seriously (that marathon scene). But I did really like the first half a lot. It felt less forced and more refreshing. Nonetheless its still not a bad show and its ending was pretty ok/good. Overall 7/10, if it was just its first half i would have given 9/10

Hello, Kunogi. What are you looking at?
And apparently, Hiraoka seems to have made up with Diesel-San.
Even Chazawa the funny (former) editor for Nogame is there.
It seems he isn't allowed to eat or drink around there but that is what it should be.

This was a nice anime which i am gonna miss.
I hope we will see more of it but for now i really enjoyed it.
It was nice seeing how the anime business works and seeing the lives of the people who work in anime.
They made it seem like a fun industry to work in even tho it's pretty hectic at times.
