Final Impressions: Shirobako

Spoiler alert: Shirobako ends happily.  Of course, that's really only a spoiler to the most stubborn and obnoxious of curmudgeons. There was really no other way for this show to end. And to be frank, it ended as it should have: Fu...

Annotated Anime: Shirobako episode 23

Exposition. Rising Action. Climax. Dénouement. These should be familiar, if you remember your grade-school literature classes. Real life, however, isn't so convenient. More often than not, life is a lingering anticlimax brackete...

First Impressions: Uchouten Kazoku

Shape-shifting tanuki and soaring tengu, huge ears, and atypical animation are the pillars on which Uchouten Kazoku is built. It's an intriguing mishmash of elements that certainly don't sound as though they could work well together, but I ...

First Impressions: Tari Tari

It's easy enough to write up a First Impression piece on an anime when you strictly focus on how good or bad it was, but it's the shows that are just average throughout that people here on Japanator have trouble writing up. Tari Tari isn't ...
