-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.”

  1. Personally I really liked this film, boob groping and all. I’ve never been a Shinkai fan, really, though I did like about half of 5cm/s. It’s been a couple of weeks since I saw the film so I’m having trouble thinking of specific thoughts I had on it, I guess to sum it up I do plan to rewatch this film at some point to further analyze it. On the idea of it as a date movie, there was actually this really old couple watching at the theater I went to, like I’m talking at least in their 70’s.

    Look forward to listening to the next podcast.


  2. I thinks that Kimi no Nawa deserves the success BECAUSE of it’s faults.
    Everything you point wrong in this movie I agree, since the first time I watched I felt the same, I was surprised by all the nonsense in the script. Despite of this, I liked!
    How many better movies fail to “win the public”? That this movie was so adored being “this bad” it’s no easy feat.
