    No No Cole! Friend is Pregnant. Guy is with Hot girl. Guy tells Friend to get an abortion and fuck off. Friend stabs him to death next time they're alone. Hot Girl corners her and cuts her open to see if she was ever pregnant in the first place. Turns out she was lying. Hot Girl chops off Boys head and carries it with her.

    Goku's Japanese VA was jarring to me at first too, but once I started watching super I realised something; Goku's a complete f*cking idiot. That high pitched voice perfectly embodies his complete and total immaturity, which was never properly represented in DBZ, especially the dub, where Sean's voice acting made him sound and act like a hero. Super gave up on making him look like a hero and focused on what he actually is, the current arc in particular, so now I absolutely can't go back to the dub for it.


    Might check out the Black arc, see if Schemmel keeps that "I've been gargling gravel" voice for Black's base form, or if he uses the (much better) voice he uses for SSJ Rosé in Xenoverse

      I absolutely hate Goku's Japanese voice, but you hit the nail on the head with it conveying just how big of a moron he is. His actions in the recent saga have actually made me resent him. i like goku being the hero, i cant stand him jumping into BS "because i wanna fight". i like everything else.....oh king kai's voice makes me tear because i love the dub voice, its so funny. im also someone who like english dubs of anime more than subtitled versions. i feel forced to watch when everything else i watch i can play video games or clean while watching.

      I like how he's so self-absorbed in DBS, because that's how he's always been. DBZ's anime always glossed over it, but in the manga he was every bit as selfish and dangerous to those around him as he is now.

      They haven't had a large audience in a while because the animation department moved to a different building, and Fan Service is still filmed at Stage 5.

    Sadly the real reason Gigi stopped talking was because they voice actor was killed. Apparently though he was always in character from the moment he went into the booth so when he says "Kiki can you hear me" they took that from when he was mic testing.

      The japanese voice actress is still very much alive. Phil Hartman, the american voice, is the one that had lines added in where the japanese version had none. That mic test thing is awesome though.

    Ok, so Shirobako. I totally get why this show is interesting to the Fan Service crew but to me it is incredibly dull and honestly confusing. This is because I do not work for an animation company. I just cant identify with the series like the crew can because I have no idea what that is like. I respect their right to enjoy the show though. I just thought I would make my ideas heard since Fan Service is the one show I feel like really listens to the fans.

    I really enjoyed Austin's opinions on AoT and Tanya. I know there's people here saying he's too negative or just doesn't like the genre, but he's very right in some of his arguments. There's hardly anything at stake in these shows, because in AoT the most of the deaths really don't seem to mean anything. All the side characters are bland and hardly ever covered, and the only time they seem to get any backstory to them is 15 minutes before they're eaten, Potato girl being the one exception so far really. On top of that the pacing can be horrible, though that's gotten better this season.


     In Tanya you know she won't die, and the show didn't even try to make you care about the supporting cast, so you hardly care for those fights either, because there's really no risk. If we had any reason to care more for Granz or Crazy girl then I could've gotten into it more, but without that I just watched it for the good animation, and not because I really felt for any of the cast.

      @LeFloop I can't really understand how anyone could say there's "nothing at stake" in Attack on Titan when it's a show about humanity being on the brink of annihilation. Plenty of the side characters (Sasha is actually much more of a member of the main cast) get enough characterization, although that's a pretty odd comment to make to begin with, considering it's a series with a huge cast that's (in the anime) still only about a third through. The pacing comment is also more or less a laughable trend with anything these days.

    ... Saitama didn't do "nothing" to get his power. He trained, you can make fun of how simple the training was. But he did train. Also, he's not really an idiot or a loser, he's goofy sure, but he wants to be liked. He's willing to do things to jeopardize that dream of his which makes him have a lot of depth. He's bored with his life because he doesn't find fulfillment in his hobby anymore. It's... super relatable to people not working for their dream company.

    I'm in the minority about FMA brotherhood, I've read the manga so the show didn't do much to excite me. But I guess I'm biased for the original FMA sound track, brotherhood should have at least added new music instead of changing it all

    I agree with everything said about Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood. I watched around a quarter of the show, but I read the entire manga. Easily one of the greatest stories... of all time. I never would've thought of the Lord of the Rings parallel, but it works surprisingly well.

    I don't agree that Dragon Ball should be watched dubbed. After watching the Japanese for Super, I've gone back and re-watched everything in Japanese because of how good it is.

    The English makes Goku too much of a "I'm a super hero who protects everyone", that's not the character. I've learned after nearly 20 years.of watching to dub and now mainly "I watch this subbed".

    I'm watching the stuff they are dubbing of Super, but I just want to see how it compares to the Japanese.

    • Phoenix512 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      I absolutely agree. Goku is "Likes to fight" guy first, being a hero second. The dub (especially the Funi one) changed Goku's character to be a hero and is going to be interesting how it's going to deal with the Universal Survival arc since Goku isn't the hero that everyone thought he is.

      I agree completely. Dragon Ball's dubs are actually the only dubs I explicitly tell people to stay away from, because they just aren't accurate (unless we're talking about Kai and anything after, those dubs have been pretty good so far).

    Loved this week's guests. And community service had some good questions this week.


    I didn't know that it would going into it, but Shirobako reminds me way too much of the engineering industry: deadlines, mess ups from co-workers and suppliers, unforeseen snags, changes in direction halfway through a project. I'm with Austin, this show is going to give me ulcers reminding me of my own work. That said I'm really enjoying it, especially with the insights to the industry as well as the RT team's comments and experiences on the same. The whole don't try to put it all on your shoulders and clearly communicate your limits talk really hit home for me. Great pick!


    Can't wait to see Reina next week! She and Victoria crack me up over on Crunchyroll.

    I really think Austin doesn't like any violent show because every Anime Club show that leans more towards violence he didn't like at all.


    Also I'm in the minority about Goku's dub voice. The dub voice doesn't pull off the silliness of Goku's character at all unlike the original Japanese voice does. Goku is mostly a silly character not the bad-ass that the dub has made him out to be and failing on the silliness is failing on the character overall. I feel like DBZ Abridged Goku points this out with his delivery of being silly almost all the time.

      I don't like shows that lean on gore. Some anime is very narrative based, while others are created to "last in the moment" so to speak. The narrative is much less important than transporting you to another world. Attack On Titan leans way more towards that kind. It just so happens its a world I don't want to go to. 

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

      @Phoenix512 @Austin I wouldn't really say that about Attack on Titan. It's a series that has violence in it but its still a very narrative driven one, like Berserk for example. I think the majority of anime don't really have such serious violence in them, that now when one has it's being compared to just "torture porn". In a live action series that would probably never happen and no-one would say that Game of Thrones, for example, is just gore without relying on a narrative. There actually is an amount of more obscure anime that are really nothing more than gore-fests with no real story but Attack on Titan is an entirely different beast.

    Sorry to say that centaur girl can't give her friends rides. It's considered a hate crime.


    The manga for the show is pretty far along and it's really good... mostly...

    The slice of life parts are great and it covers a lot of things about how centaurs, mermaids, ect live day to day and the little differences in how they do simple tasks.

    However other times the manga has a lot of chapters on political stories in the world, strange sci-fi stuff and some preachy chapters (with messages I'd otherwise agree with, but are a little off putting when it feels like it's lecturing you.)

    The whole time it leaves you begging for it to just get back to the girl's and their everyday life.


    That said, if the first episode is the first chapter in vol 1, then I can't wait to see what Fanservice has to say on it.


    On subs or dubs, I go both when it's on the disk. Twice the voice acting for the price of one :p 

    It also let's you see that some characters work better in English (usually where accents are involved, see Black Lagoon) and even where some scenes play out better in one language or another.


    Glad they mentioned Eden of the East, it's such a good show that I always find myself going back to. The characters are fun but feel like real people you could meet anywhere.


    Flowers of Evil is great. The animation of the Anime loses a few people, but the manga is like a dark addiction. It's messed up in a lot of ways but you won't want to stop turning those pages till the end.

    The same creator is doing a vampire story that's just as messed up called 'Happiness' which is also really worth checking out.
