We’re digging back into the vaults of unreleased episodes! With A Silent Voice in theaters and Your Name coming out on blu-ray next month, now’s as good a time as any to excavate our thoughts on the two biggest anime movies of 2016, if not the decade! Did these films live up to their reputation? Have their quality and criticisms been overstated? Which one is the better film? Finally, five months after recording our thoughts on these films, these questions will be answered!
