The Wandering Witch Explores Anime — Gataris

The Wandering Witch Explores Anime — Gataris
Welcome, all, again. I hope you enjoyed Halloween (Samhain, for me) as much as I did! Meanwhile, our subject of discussion today, Anime-Gataris, has already proven a great joy to anime enthusiasts and other otaku by allowing us to view ourselves through rather rose-colored glasses, however pitted. And I can't argue. After all, we've been subconsciously awaiting this series--this premise--since Shirobako knocked us onto our collective can back in 2014. Shirobako, while fictional, was nonetheless ...

The Wandering Witch – “Just One More Thing…”

The Wandering Witch – “Just One More Thing…”
Welcome, all, again.  I find myself writing this column just a couple of weeks into a new season of anime, so I must decline attempting a premature evaluation of new shows. Meanwhile, three series (in particular) are continuing this season from last, and all seem to be doing so strongly: Your Lie in April, Yona of the Dawn, and Shirobako.

The Wandering Witch – Shirobako’s Beautiful Storm

The Wandering Witch – Shirobako’s Beautiful Storm
Welcome, all, again. Our subject this time is Shirobako, an anime about making anime. And while that might sound like an invitation to kid-glove treatment of subject matter and blatant self-serving promotion, this show deftly repudiates those concerns. It is both funny and engrossing, but makes me wonder how we get to see any anime at all!
