    I am SO glad somebody else was bothered by those horses. I grew up around horses and was screaming "THAT'S NOT HOW YOU RIDE A HORSE" and "WHY ARE THEIR KNEES BENDING THE WRONG WAY?"

    As someone who's a fan of Jojo, it was funny how much the explanation made sense. 


    That being said, I wish we could see them all reacting to it at the same time.

    I cannot tell you how excited I am for more Anime Telephone. I already loved Cole Explains (I fell in love with KonoSuba after his explanation and needing to see it for myself), but this seems so insane I am going to lose it each week from hysterical laughing fits. That's gonna be a close second for my favorite part, only behind the Fan Service Shot of the Week...

    Wow Cole susks at explaining does he do it bad on purpose? JoJo's is better than his explanation...

    As someone who enjoyed all off Jojo and is eagerly awaiting the next part, listening to Cole explain the first episode made me physically ill.


    I like the Cole Explains segment a lot....when he's describing a ridiculous perverted comedy. With Jojo having actual depth even with a twisty plot and over the top presentation, the segment just hurts the show.

    Rokka: Braves of the Six Flowers is so bad. What a waste of time. It's so slow and repetitive. 
    It defines itself as a Mystery anime, but doesn't let the audience figure the mystery itself. It solves it like: "I'm the writer of this show and this happens just because I have to make an excuse to end this anime".

    The animation is quite good & the music good, but the story is not well presented. 4/10

    Would just like to point out that, in the Rokka: Braves of the Six Flowers, at the time they reference Goldov (the big '14' year old) being '14', they were '16'. They also point out that that was 2 years before hand. Goldov is 16 in the anime. (He's still a giant monster of a boy, but still. He's not 14.)

    I'm sure you've heard this suggestion a million times, but can you do a western animation special episode??
    I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts/insight into "anime-esque" style western shows or even just mainstream western animation!

    Titled Ripped 14yr olds but they don't mention Iron Blooded Orphans (s2 dub just started on Toonami). That's alright though I'll forgive it for the Code Geass mention

    The Magical Girl genre began with Magical Girl Sally back in the 60s but the first transforming "magical girl" that fights monsters was Cutey Honey in the 70s.


    I was reading an interview about the Netflix CEO was mentioning how he is a big fan of anime and supposedly knows the anime fans except the part that anime fans don't want all at once releases when it's being aired in Japan one episode at a time and being forced to wait for months because Netflix wants the rest of the world to binge it like everything else they create. If Japan already can watch the most recent episode after the initial airing on Netflix, why not for rest of the world in subbed form?


    Supposedly that with Netflix producing new anime series that it will allow animation studios to create the type of shows they want to do but with them screwing most of the world in their distribution method of binging it could hurt them in the long run because anime fans are more likely to check out the new crop of shows of the current season than going back to a show that came out months ago in Japan.


    Part 1 of JoJo is the weakest part of the entire series and also episode 1 is nothing like rest of the series. It will get better. I really wonder why Kerry just refuses on the suggestion of watching JoJo.

    In regards to Evangelion's cultural relevance to Japan, I'd also like to add that the author, Hideaki Anno, grew up in post-WWII US-occupied Japan, where daily life and activities were under constant surveillance of the US government. A lot of the same ideas you talked about for Code Geass are similar themes as are in Evangelion. The youth rising up and fighting off unknown foreign invaders in defense of the homeland. There are also strong themes of personal identity and one's place in a horribly messed up world you had no choice to be part of.

    Sky Dancers, which I believe originated in France. W.I.T.C.H. and Winx Club, Italian cartoons. Arguably, Powerpuff Girls (young girls with magical powers who fight crime, it lacks the transformation sequence though). So I wouldn't say Magical Girl is exclusive to Japan, merely older, more prominent, and more frequent.

    In regards to why Shirobako might have made that list, let me offer why I think it might have a place on there.


    To me, Shirobako did an amazing job of showing what it's like to be a recent entry into the working world, especially when it's in a field that you're passionate about.


    Each of the five girls represented a different type of situation that a young worker might find themselves dealing with.  Not knowing where to focus or specialize in your field.  Worrying that you aren't as good as your peers, and maybe never will be.  Being in a job or at a company that, despite what it does offer, isn't very personally fulfilling.  Giving huge amounts of time and energy towards helping with needed but low-level work and just hoping that it will somehow translate into the skills you need to do the things you actually want (that was Diesel-san, and if I didn't articulate her role here very well it's because hers was the hardest for me to relate to).  Searching desperately to find a job doing what you love, only to be refused time and again.


    I've seen people in all of these positions, or been there myself.  I've probably hit multiple of them in the short time I've been in the workforce.  While I'm not sure exactly how comparable it is between the USA and Japan, I think this show was culturally significant for showing what life is like for people just learning how to be working adults in the 2010's.  While it may not be as high-level or use as much symbolism as the other things on that list, I think it does the same core job: capturing the sense of what a large group of people are thinking and feeling in and around the time it came out.

      It needs another season if only to try and recover from the incredibly poor storytelling and unfortunate situation it created for itself in the last five minutes. The entire thing leading up to the last episode was awesome and had me on the edge of my seat, but that last two or three scenes just crumpled the entire thing.

    Do you have a link to that article you discussed about the cultural impact? I would like to show it to some friends and discuss with them.

    Edit: Never mind, found it.


    Also, I like the new segment but would like to see it with a more comedic show after this season. I don't know, maybe OHSHC or something like that.

    I’ve reached next level confusion with cole explains because the new iOS update likes to spontaneously kick the video back 15 seconds at random moments so not only am I dealing with jojo’s and cole explainations, I have to do it while piecing together which awkward hand flails I’ve already seen, how many types of old guy there are, and if I’ve heard this particular sound of confused frustration from miles already.

    Great episode guys! Was really interesting hearing your discussions on culturally defining anime! I'm looking forward to seeing how anime telephone turns out! I mean there's no way that it'll make sense, because it's Jojo (which hardly makes sense in the first place) but that is what will make it glorious.

    Can't wait until you get into the real meat of Rokka Brave of Six Flowers, excellent choice Cole!


    Keep up the great work, and it's always awesome to see you guys having fun.
