Patron Exclusive Review Episode 92

When you wish upon a star… makes a BIG difference where you are

One of Japan’s highest-grossing animated films has come crashing down on Brock, Jakob, and Stuart. Let Now Playing add Your Name to the list of April Patrons getting to hear their podcast review of Makoto Shinkai’s 2016 genre-bending classic. What happens when a teenage girl living in a doomed village magically swaps bodies with an adolescent boy studying in fast-paced Tokyo?  Can the pair be expected to work together and prevent a cataclysmic astrological event if they’re barely able to find their way to school or manipulate their new genitalia? Listen Now!
