Animenewsnetwork - Shirobako is a difficult show to write about week to week. That's not a knock against it, though. It's the best kind of show that's hard to write about: it's consistently excellent, and often in the same ways. It's a pretty looking and sounding show. It's funny and heartwarming at the same time. It has excellent character development, especially considering its gigantic cast. Luckily, that last thing usually gives me something to analyze each week, and episode 21 was no different.
