12 Days of Anime No. 1 – Catharsis

Gif yanked from this good as heck article about 10 great moments of animation from 2015 by Twitter user @Yuyucow. Beautiful! From the moment I thought about this project, there was no doubt in my mind regarding the final moment I would write about. More than anything, this simple victory is what Shirobako built to […]

12 Days of Anime No. 2 – When Your Best Isn’t Enough

First off, apologies for the delays in getting these last two posts out. I ended up being busier than expected on Christmas Eve and Christmas (wow, who would expected someone to be busy THOSE days???), so instead of half-assing a couple of posts, I decided to just put them off until I could concentrate a […]

12 Days of Anime #1: The #1 Character in the #1 Show of the Year

Okay I’m just fucking with y’all, it’s Hana from Prison School. Even I don’t think that highly of Sore ga Seiyuu, the poor man’s Shirobako made by a poor man’s studio about poor man’s voice actors, that had more than a poor man’s quality.

12 Days of Anime #1: Code Gay-Ass

Rewatching Code Geass was scary. I mean, I had always really liked the anime, but when I go as far as to name the blog after it, it took on a greater significance. The name for the site was suggested in passing by my sister when I was expressing frustration with the difficulty of coming […]

12 Days of Anime #2: A voice actress meeting

There were 2 contenders for my potential Shirobako 12 Days article. The other one was the moment in the second last episode where they reveal which voice actress they chose for the new role. It was a moment that put a perfect cap on everything the series had been working towards (and then proceeded to […]

12 Days of Anime No. 3 – Cross Heart Attack

Death Parade was a show where I could recognize and appreciate the craft, but there would always be little things that bugged me and prevented me from fully enjoying it. It happens. I did, however, totally enjoy the times when Death Parade leaned hard into a change of pace, including my highlighted episode.

12 Days of Anime #3: GATEgate

I think the nicest thing that I can say about GATE is that I expected to be a lot more disdainful toward it than I turned out to be. This was in large part thanks to it being one of the most insipid shows of the year, with it not aspiring to much and easily […]

12 Days of Anime #3: The longest 10 seconds

The first season of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure with Phantom Blood and Battle Tendency ranks as one of my top 10 anime of all time. Stardust Crusaders wouldn’t make my top 100. I felt that in changing to this episodic format it managed to strip all the urgency and gravitas out of a series that, for […]
