    • Fan Service Season One Wrap-Up

      4 days ago

      ColeG

      Hey everyone!


      Fan Service was such a fun show to work on! That was due, in large part, to YOU tuning in every week and joining in on the conversation. 


      So I want to know what did you like most about season one? Was it the Fan Service Anime Club discussions? Segments like Fan Service Shot of the Week, Cole Explains, and Stan's Shower Thoughts? Our general discussion? What would you have liked to see more of?


      I want to know how we can make this show better for you!


      Again, thank you all!

      Hey!!!


      This Friday, January 6, at 5pm CST will be the finale of Fan Service Season 1. Thank you all so much for tuning in for the past 12 weeks. This show has been so much fun for us and it is all thanks to you!


      Since this is the finale, we are gonna do stuff a little differently this week. Stan will be in for some of his shower thoughts. For our discussion will be reminiscing about our favorite anime year of 2016. Instead of our normal Fan Service Anime Club, we will be previewing some of the shows we are highly anticipating.


      We will still be having Austin judge the Fan Service Shot of the Week.


      Again; thank you all so much for such a kick-ass first season.

    • Fan Service Episode #5 & #6

      1 month ago

      ColeG

      IMPORTANT INFO REGARDING THE NEXT TWO EPISODES OF FAN SERVICE


      Episode #5:

      We've got a big episode planned for this week's Fan Service. 


      I'm excited to announce that on this week's Fan Service we will be bringing on a couple special guests.


      Michael andLindsay will be joining us in our discussion about 90s anime. 


      For the Fan Service Shot of the Week, Austin will be the judge. So send in your clips to  Gray, KerryMiles, Yssa, or myself.


      We'll also be getting back to Drifters, with episodes 5&6.


      So tune in this Friday, November 18 at 5pm cst.


      Episode #6

      Due to American Thanksgiving, we will be pre-taping Fan Service #6, immediately following episode #5.


      So send in your Fan Service Shot of the Week for me while you're sending in the ones for Austin.


      One of the advantages of us pre-taping is that we are now going to be able to bring on Shannon to talk about anime that's not "anime" (i.e. Thunderbolt Fantasy, Shelter, Voltron, etc.)


      We'll also be slowing down the Yuri!!! on Ice discussion, covering only episode 7.


      The episode #6 recording will still be broadcast November 25 at 5pm cst.



    • Fan Service Episode #4

      2 months ago

      ColeG

      Hey all!


      Soooo, due to preparations for the Extra Life stream, we have decided to do a pre-taped Fan Service this week. We want to give broadcast that on Friday time to make sure everything is working smoothly for this weekend. The episode will still be airing at 5 pm cst.


      During last week's discussion, we mentioned that we were going to be diving a bit more into Shinichiro Watanabe's works. Upon review of our discussion, we realized we had already said a lot of what we had wanted to say, so we are going to be pulling an audible. 


      Instead this week we will be discussing some of the other shows we've watched this season, as well as delving a little bit into the rise in popularity of sports anime (i.e. Haikyuu!!, Yuri!!! on Ice, Free!.) 


      We are still on for the Gray Shot of the Week, so help out KerryMiles, YssaAustin, or myself in our search for the most Mecha shots around.


      As for the book club this one will be a doosie, we will be plunging into Yuri!!! on Ice through episode 06. So catch up now!


      We are looking forward to returning to airing live next week and thank you for your understanding =D


    • Top 5 Introductory Anime

      2 months ago

      ColeG

      As mentioned on Fan Service #03 here were my five choices for introductory anime


      FMA Brotherhood


      Wolf Children


      My Hero Academia


      Spirited Away


      G Gundam


      Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood appeared on almost everyone's lists during our selection process. Along with everything mentioned on Fan Service, FMA Brotherhood does an amazing job of world building. On paper, alchemy is not what I'd call simple. But FMA Brotherhood is able to introduce the concept in such a way that the audience doesn't feel the need to question it. It builds a very steady foundation early on without patronizing the viewer, allowing the viewer to feel part of the world, as well as getting out of the way of the character development.


      Wolf Children is MY favorite anime feature. I own six copies of the Blu Ray that I have strategically stashed in the homes of different family members, as to always have a copy within 50 miles. Wolf Children is the beautiful story of a single mother raising two children. However they are not "normal" children... they are wolf children as the title would imply. And that last sentence is why this movie is so amazing. There is no such thing as normal children. There is no such thing as normal parents. Wolf Children shows that in actuality, parents have no idea what they are doing, and in most cases are just trying their best to make a good life for their children. Wolf Children has actually been a gateway for both my mother and sister into the world of anime. 


      As I mentioned in Fan Service, My Hero Academia should be considered when trying to get someone into anime. It hits on the current super hero craze. It has some of the best pacing I've seen in a while. It has the same level of world building as FMA Brotherhood. An extremely diverse cast of characters. And it just makes you feel good. My Hero Academia is about  a regular middle school student in a world where people with superpowers known as "Quirks" are the norm. However, he dreams of one day becoming a Hero, despite being bullied by his classmates for not having a Quirk. After being the only one to try and save his childhood bully from a Villain, All Might, the world's greatest Hero, bestows upon him his own quirk, "One For All". The story follows Izuku's entrance into U.A. High School, a school that cultivates the next generation of Heroes.


      Spirited Away may have some strange things going on, but it has the advantage of pedigree. It is probably easier to convince someone to watch something if its an Academy Award winner. While not my favorite Miyazaki film ( that goes to Princess Mononoke), it is still a very good story.


      Gundam is DENSE... There is SOOOOOO much Gundam. Yet it is ARGUABLY, the most influential series in anime. A good place to start in Gundam is G Gundam, which takes place outside of the main cannon. Its a condensed series (only 49 episodes). It has a diverse cast of characters. Really cool action scenes. It's a revenge story that takes place in reality where all major world countries have been forced to migrate to orbiting space stations. On earth Gundam pilots compete in tournaments to gain advantage for their respective countries. It can be a good gateway into the world of Gundam.


      So there it is. A little more scatter-brained that I had intended but I wanted to at least get the names out there.


      Thank you for tuning into Fan Service.

    • Fan Service Episode #03

      2 months ago

      ColeG

      Here's the scoop on this weeks Fan Service!


      Help out Gray, Kerry, Miles, Austin, and myself find the most salaciously, hunky clips ever, for the Yssa shot of the Week.


      For the Fan Service Anime Club we will be catching up on Drifters, up through episode four. Since episode 5 is airing hours before Fan Service, we thought it was best to give everyone time to watch it and cover it in a couple weeks.


      Then strap in for next week cause we will by flying through episodes two through six of Yuri!!! on Ice. 


      For the discussion topic for this week, we will be trying out something we think you'll like. We all have come across a friend who has asked what a good anime to start with is, if not wondered that ourselves. So join in the discussion, as we try to discern what some of the top introductory anime are.


      Fan Service Episode 03 will be broadcast live for First members on November 4 at 5pm cst, and uploaded November 5 at 9am cst for First members, so you can watch it again as a warm up for a BRAND NEW RWBY Volume 4 Episode.


      If you're not a FIRST member, remember you can try a 30-day FREE trial and cancel anytime!


       heart You All!



    • Fan Service IMPORTANT INFO!!!!

      2 months ago

      ColeG

      Hey Everyone,


      Thank you so much for checking out the season premiere of Fan Service!!! We are all extremely happy to be back, and its all thanks to your dedication!!!


      Coming up this week we will be seeing the return of one of my favorite segments, "Stan's Shower Thoughts". Can you guess what show Stan was thinking about when he is all slippery and wet?


      As noted on the last episode, we have been deciding on what two shows to discuss as part of the "Fan Service Anime Club". I am happy to announce that we will be following "Drifters" and "Yuri!!! on Ice". Be sure to watch the first episode of each and join in on the conversation this Friday at 5pm CST.


      Also, be sure to assist Gray, Kerry, Yssa, Austin, or myself in trying to find a shot that will most tickle Miles' jimmies (hint: think sick action shots) for "Fan Service Shot of the Week".



      Now we've been getting a lot of questions about whether or not Fan Service videos will be released to the public, so we wanted to take a moment to clarify!


      Fan Service is a FIRST-Exclusive show on roosterteeth.com, and really that's because FIRST members are the reason we were able to green light the show in the first place (no pun intended). The support we've received from FIRST memberships is why RT has been able to dish out badass content like Day 5 and Crunch Time, and even though it's not identical in scope to those series, Fan Service falls into that category of premium content. We're an incredibly niche program, in that not everyone in the world wants to tune in for an anime show (in the same way not everyone wants to tune in to hear folks talk about sports or finances or artisan pottery making).


      We will be releasing the audio from Fan Service episodes on iTunes and GooglePlay for people to download, though with the visual nature of the show, I'd still highly recommend viewing it as a FIRST member if you're able.


      The best comparison I can make would be to Funhaus' Twits & Crits series. The reason that show exists is because of FIRST Members, so FIRST members get the full, hour-long-plus episodes and folks on YouTube get a more condensed, "highlight reel" version of the show for free.


      We hope this all makes sense to you guys and we hope that the FIRST members out there who have been supporting us are enjoying the show! If you're not a FIRST member, remember you can try a 30-day FREE trial and cancel anytime (but for real, it's only like 3 bucks a month)!


      Thanks so much (we literally couldn't do this without you)! See you Friday at 5pm CST!

      Sorry for the delay in making this post. I spent the majority of the day in a stream induced coma.

      So that may have been one of the most fun weekends of my life. I'm so amazed that we were able to raise over $442k.

      I want to use this post as an opportunity to thank a bunch of people for all the effort they put into making the stream such a crazy success.

      smiley13.gif First and foremost, THE Community. Time-and-time again our community proves that it is the best community in the WORLD! We would be nothing without each and everyone of you. So thank you from the bottom of my heart for those who donated to those who shared with friends and family. You are the true heroes of this weekend.

      smiley13.gif Thanks to Adam Kovic for being a BOSS and flying in from LA based on a joke call THAT morning. I loved the commitment. I don't think we could have picked better special guests.

      smiley13.gif Speaking of special guests, thank you to Levar and Mica Burton. One of the most surreal experience of my life was having story time with the man who taught me the joys of reading at a very young age.

      smiley13.gif Thanks to @alanritchson for giving us a second wind. We won't let Matt and Burnie find out about the secret that happened.

      smiley13.gif Thank you to @Jack and @Caiti for heading the whole stream. And thank you for the constant reminder of the point of the stream, the kids.

      smiley13.gif Thanks to everyone at the company who put their everything into this. From appearing on the stream, to @Jon 's poster, to @Emily for all the prep work she did in preparing the store.

      smiley13.gif Special thanks to Mandy, Peyton, and Clayton for sticking through with me all night long! @Podrick has assembled quite the BADASS broadcast team.

      I'm starting to realize that I could never have enough words to recognize everyone who deserves all the thanks in the world.

      So I'll end with this...

      smiley13.gif THANK YOU smiley13.gif

      To everyone who had anything to do with this CRAZY, AWESOME, AMAZING weekend!!!

        I know I was kinda bummed when it came to guardian registration. It felt weird, the first year not signing up.

        But I'm even more excited now to see all the awesome guardians this year.
