    IDK on Neil, I thought that was a fairly ironic usage, and that it made sense for his character. it was a satirical statement for someone who absolutely asks questions to say "I'm a sheep, I don't ask questions." Neil has become a fairly sarcastic character over the series, and an increasingly cynical one, so I thought it made sense. But it's all opinion, and I obviously don't know the character as well as the creators.

    I haven't watched Fan Service in a while and i'm finally marathoning all that I missed, this being the second episode of said marathon. Really love this show.

    I had heard about Your name before but didn't pay it much attention, but hearing the beginning of the discussion of the movie finally convinced me to give it a watch. So I paused the episode and an hour and forty minutes of trying not to cry and failing later I was left amazed and sad, but in a good way. That movie fucked me up, like i'm writing this a good couple hours after watching it late at night because I haven't been able to do much else but think about it and put on my headphones to surround myself with soft music while I deal with the feelings welling up in my chest. I am so glad I chose today to catch up on Fan Service and watch that movie, it made this day feel a little less shitty. I can only hope to make a story that effects people like this someday.

    So thanks, Fan Service.

    Does anybody know where to find the quote that Yssa and Miles read at 0:30:30? It really resonated with me and I was hoping to read more.

    I know I'm fucking WAY late to the party but I have no one to talk about this with. I watched Your Name on my own on my laptop just before starting this episode and I am emotionally compromised. This film was beautiful in so many different ways. Hearing you guys talk about it was making me tear up and I don't cry easy. Specifically the scene where Taki wakes up in her body after drinking the stuff and then he hugs her/himself because he is so happy she's alive and can be saved. For fucks sake I'm welling up just writing this. I'm so glad I saw this film, thank you for recommending it so much, I would never have watched it otherwise.

    honestly i was a bit disappointed with how hyped your name was. i shed a few tears but thats it. i watched A silent voice a week ago and cried so much more at that and also like 10 hours later. i'd love to hear your guys opinions on A silent voice! :)

    I feel seriously out of place in this comment section.  I didn't cry, sniffle, get a hitch in my throat or even a chill down my spine from watching Your Name.  It was a solid movie, but not a tear-jerker.  Hell, it didn't get a sniffle from my friend who was weeping at the end of Logan.

    Guys, can we please get show specific spoiler tags, cause I have no idea when you switch between shows especially during anime club. For convenience sake?

    I can't believe I paid $50CAD to get a First membership so I could hear them talk about Your Name after I watched it last night, only to have it followed by Cole talking about an incestuous death note

    Shirobako starts at 1:03:08, for anyone who wants to skip Attack on Titan spoilers but watch the Shirobako discussion.


    ...Which, I'm pretty sure I'm the only person that applies to.

    Finally watched "Your Name" yesterday (which means I finally get to watch this episode today), and HOLY F------

    That movie touched me in places I didn't even know I had. It was so gorgeously beautiful from beginning to end, and when it was done the reality I left seemed more real than the reality of the real-world. Makoto Shinkai is a genius.

    I'm glad this movie made it to Sweden (where I'm from), but I had to take a train to the capital for the sole reason of seeing it in its original Japanese (Swedish dubs are some bullsh*t yo)

    Woops, I had this on the second screen, and didn't realize the Your Name Spoiler Segment was a spoiler segment until I got spoiled.

    It's ok though because I'm dead inside and that spoiler wouldn't make me cry during the movie or anything, right?... right?

    I rewatched Shirobako with a friend last year and realized there is a lot happening in each episode. I just can't wait until someone mentions Taro is actually the avatar of the director of Shirobako. A bunch of characters are based on real life people like the owner of the studio and the director of Exodus.


    Speaking of Exodus, it's actually Catch Me If You Can but with idols. In the Japanese Blu-Ray release, they created episode 1s for both Exodus and the other show (based on manga not light novel) which was neat to see.

    It kinda sucks that Your Name and Kizumonogatari III came out at the same exact time. I chose Kizu over Your Name in the end. I had already seen Your Name months ago, but was planning on seeing it in theaters when it came out. Oh well, Kizu III was an amazing thing to see in theaters. I was hoping they would at least cover it.

    So I actually have a comment on the way Sasha and her dad speak. Its pretty common in translations of anime and manga as a way to show the difference between the prefectures in Japan. Adding a southern pronunciation is usually to indicate that they are from the kanto region (I'm not sure if I got this right) as they actually use different words than what you would see in say Tokyo. I learnt this from reading fan translated manga when I was younger.

    I'm glad I didn't pause it to go watch Shirobako when you mentioned it in the discussion.  I binged the fuck out of that show, would've been kinda awkward to leave Fan Service paused in the background for like a day.


    Can't wait for you guys to get into it some more!

    One of the first things that initially drew me to RWBY was how excited everyone was about it and the passion that went into the show. I can really feel that still, and not just for RWBY but all your projects, as you all discuss Shirobako and relate to it. As someone who engages with this industry primarily as a fan, I really appreciate this insight and look forward to further discussions.


    The series is definitely going on my to watch list, even though I might not get to it any time soon.

    I've been listening to RADWIMPS for a couple years now, fun fact: they based their english lyrics from these covers. Some of my favorite other songs by them are Futarigoto, Order Made, いいんですか?, (these music videos are really great) 雨音子,05410-(n), ます。, 最大公約数, おしゃかしゃま, Weekly Shounen Jump, and I really could go on listing more, lol. Hope this helps out anyone who is interested in checking out more of their music!

    Would you guys consider doing a Achievement Hunter styled Theater mode except with you guys watching "Your Name" ?  I feel like it would be incredible, you guys being able to pause and commentate to it. I understand you would need the rights to it but if you were to somehow do it, I would be absolutely amazing!

    • LHprs FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      That would probably be the best thing ever.  But rights would absolutely kill whatever budget the art department as a whole has.  A movie that popular (worldwide, admittedly), that new, will have licensing costs through the roof.

      A quick google search has come up with something like $200-$400 for a public showing of a movie for a SINGLE SHOWING.  I can only imagine an online upload with unlimited views would be that much higher.  There's no way the cost of a number of First Memberships would cover it.

      Still, I would LOVE a movie deep-dive episode.  Maybe pick a film each season, and dedicate one episode to discussing it (kind of like the Ghost in the Shell discussion a couple episodes ago).  It'd be a cool change of pace from the Anime Book Club that just focuses on series.

      Man, that would be badass! Hell, if they made a kickstater to pay for the license to just make 1 episode on it, I'd be the first to pitch in.

    posting this before i see the anime shot of the week or whatever. I know theres tons of great nose bleed clips out there, but sanji from one piece going to the new world an meeting the mermaids is one of the best in my opinion.
