DISCLAIMER: This piece contains major spoilers to Your Name. and potential minor spoilers to two of Shinkai’s earlier films, 5 Centimeters Per Second and The Garden of Words. If you’ve not yet seen Your Name., you should frankly leave now. I don’t want that kind of blood on my hands. Regarding the other two works, continue at your own risk, though I don’t think I discuss anything that can’t be inferred from their synopses and opening minutes.
Also this piece is my (Yatahaze’s) own personal reflection and not necessarily indicative of all of us at For Great Justice, though we did all enjoy the film, so take that as you will.
It’s finally here! For Great Justice successfully pulled off a podcast with all three members about a relevant topic! Are you amazed? We’re amazed.
So here’s the deal: we talk about the winter 2015 anime chart according to anichart.net, in order, as it was on December 3rd when this podcast was recorded. As of this written post, I think the only notable changes were the moving of Rolling Girls into a different spot alphabetically (they removed the “the”) and the removal of the Kyoukai no Kanata film from the movie section. You’ll still hear us talk a bit about the latter’s original series anyway. Otherwise, sit back, follow along, and enjoy the ride as we discuss our thoughts on the upcoming season.
