Episode 61 – A Torrential Triple-Header!

Episode 61 - A Torrential Triple-Header!

I know that you’re immediately looking at that total running time, and in our defense, we did NOT plan for this show to go as long as it did. Our original plan did not call for this much material to be discussed, but much like a sudden downpour of rain, you can never predict just how much will come. So, for one time only, you are getting THREE episodes’ worth of content in one MEGA-packed show.

We will NEVER have a show run this long EVER AGAIN. That is a promise that we will try our best to keep.

Anyway, in the first “act” of the show, we have a major deep dive on the Crunchyroll Anime Awards, of the nominations chosen and the categories that have been unfortunately eliminated. In the second chunk, we have a good bit of news to discuss, from upcoming home video releases for April, some new projects headed to Netflix, some movies coming to theaters very soon, and the latest plan for Toei Animation to milk your wallet of nostalgia. And lastly, we go into a way-too-long discussion of the importance of Chekhov’s gun as a literary device in regards to the latest film from Makoto Shinkai, WEATHERING WITH YOU. (P.S. there are spoilers)

One last thing, 4DX screenings of Weathering With You start this coming Friday, January 31st. So go check it out if you want a real intersting theater experience.
