    Am I the only one who gets annoyed when they talk over their fan service shots of the week? I wanna actually listen and watch their clip. Opening and closing statements is more than enough. 


    Other than than love it! Can't wait till it comes back so I can get my next fix! I know it's unlikely cuse ya'll be mega busy with RWBY but hope you have some sort of presence at RTX London.

    So......no one here(or the cast of Fan Service) is interested in Symphogear? i'd thought Miles would bring that up, especially after that PV on youtube.

    So Miles mentioned the vending machine thing, and I remembered the light novel "I Was Reborn as a Vending Machine and Wander the Labyrinth" is a thing...

    Also, do you watch AoT Dubbed? I watched both seasons subbed as they were coming out, so I had no idea Elizabeth was Ymir (saw a clip of her voice, its good). Though I would prefer the japanese/english subbed version

    Ahh, I'm so late to this! As a recomendation of the AoT manga, make sure to read it from the very beginning. The show does some brief changes initially in terms of how things are shown, but there are several changes the anime makes/excludes which is so unbelievable. A key thing for me is how Annie is presented, a fellow anime only friend thinks she's awful and made me realise how the show sort of warped her character compared to some minor changes in the manga. The manga also sort of helps clarify some things (though that is expected) of the world and the characters. I started the manga towards the end of the season and am going through it rapidly, it is really great. I am so jealous of Miles though, the anime has some amazing visuals and a great soundtrack and I feel so guilty in spoiling it for myself

    The antoromophization of items (Kancolle, Tokuken Ranbou, etc.) probably comes from the deep roots of Shinto belief, with Kami in everything

    This is hands down my favorite podcast Rooster Teeth makes, and one of my favorite shows on the entire site. This show really reinvigorated my love for anime and I wouldn't have watched any of the shows they suggested without it. I hope they can go back to a full on season soon, but for now, thanks for the ride and have fun in the cage!

    I'm so glad to finally be caught up with Fan Service! Thank you for making me watch Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid, The Sage of Tanya the Evil, and My Hero Academia -- three shows that were not at the top of my Crunchyroll queue, that I might never have gotten around to watching if it weren't for the infectious enthusiasm of these beautiful Anime Club nerds. Thanks for your hard work, your positivity, your thoughtful analysis. For all of it. <3 Good luck with the summer animation crunch!

    I feel there was a missed opportunity with the thumbnail this week.  The thumbnail does look awesome as usual but with the conclusion of the anime club viewing of Shirobako it would've been incredible to have everyone holding a doughnut or showing their faces through the doughnut holes.

    Man, the whole eating into the mic thing (during shot of the week) really made this episode unwatchable. Like, unwatchable for someone whose watched every one of these. Please, let's not do anything like this ever again.

    That was a great season guys. 


    And just because it always has to be said; I absolutely love the show. Always make sure to watch it as soon as it comes out (or soon after). FanService is definitely one of the reasons I continue to subscribe to First. Love the entire crew and I love watching along for Anime Club and listening to your reactions. 


    Can't wait to see you next season which I hope starts up soon :)

    I realize it's not a common reaction but I am afraid of spiders to the point of sending me into seizures at times.  That shirt made this episode unwatchable for me and nearly locked up my lungs when I first saw it.  While impossible to account for every fear out there, it would be great if you guys could watch out for the more common triggers.


    And before I get hit with any comments to get over my fear, understand that a phobia is an unlogical reaction to something.  There is generally no set reasoning behind it, though some can have an event in their lives to set the phobia in motion.  I have been in therapy for this for years now and I've only learned minor control over my reactions.  I have also learned a great deal about what causes phobias and why they are so hard to deal with.


    I have greatly enjoyed watching this season and growing my anime knowledge with you guys.  I look forward to continuing that journey.

      You could just listen to it. It is a podcast after all.

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

      Correct, I can and I did listen to it instead of watching.  I found the interaction to be lacking without their faces and actions included.


      I'm only sharing my reaction and hoping that it might be avoided in the future.  I don't expect anyone to bend over backwards on my account.  If they see this and decide it is something they can do, then great, if not then I have alternatives.

      I know arachnophobia is a pretty common thing.  But is it common for someone to be affected by it so intensely?  I never would've expected something like this to be a problem.

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

      1 month ago

      I can't say if my reaction level is common.  I know that the seizures I get from spiders are a reaction from a separate medical problem that the fear reaction causes.  The basics are simply a fight or flight reaction, which I believe to be rather common.  Also keep in mind that a lot of people out there that claim to have arachnophobia do not.  That is to say they might be afraid of spiders but not to the point of a true phobia.  This is not to lesson their fear, simply correctly qualify it so one might better understand what a common reaction is.  In a normal mindset I have no understanding why I am afraid of something so small and generally harmless.  In the moment of that fear though I have no control of what I do.  I see the trigger and my body reacts.  The goal of therapy against phobias, in my experience, seems to focus on teaching you to maintain control and keep your brain functioning.

    A suggestion for the spoiler tag: the episodes to watch. This week was obvious, but I wait to watch the episodes until right before the spoiler discussion and have gotten confused in the past, so a simple number or range printed on the screen would fix that.

      Hunter X Hunter (2011) is one of the best Shonen, same genre as My Hero, but it's 148 episodes long and it will get dark at times. Regardless, it is amazing.

    I adore this podcast so much! Can't wait for more. Seriously this podcast made me fall back in love with anime after years of feeling jaded about it. I always found myself after watching an episode of AoT, Shirobako and other anime like My hero academia, excited to hear you guys discuss them because I dont know a lot of people to talk to about anime with.
