-What’s in a Name?-
CJ kick starts this episode by sharing a story about a run in with an Anime fan at his new job. Afterwords CJ and Jimmy talk at length about the Box Office Mega Smash hit, Your Name (Kimi No Na Wa). While both of them are not exactly smitten with the film, they discuss what works for the film and what doesn’t. No Patreon question this week, but that has to do with CJ being a goober.
Jimmy: This dude truly believes that the girl is still alive. Even the viewer at this point still believes it.
CJ: Well, this is more of a twist for the viewer than for anybody in the movie.
Jimmy: Well no, it is a twist for the the dude too. Cause he’s… Wait, I need to look up his name.
CJ: I was actually really hoping we were going to go this entire episode without having to say either of their names.
Jimmy: So we could be like, “What’s your name?” and we can go, “I don’t fuckin’ know.”
