    Welcome to NF's first movie night! Do you spend your Friday nights alone shitposting on NF? Well, now you can waste your time in a (very)slighty more productive way! We're planning on hosting a movie stream so we can all watch a movie together on a cold, lonely Friday night.


    What do I get out of this?
    The point of this is to garner some interest in some anime movies that members haven't seen yet or always meant to see but never had the chance. By watching it alongside others you can feel motivated to do so and have someone to talk to about it as well.

    What movie are we going to be watching?
    Above in the poll are the options we have proposed for our first movie night. Please choose one of those options. Below in the spoilers I have linked their MAL's that have a synopsis of what those movies are about. If you decide you don't want to watch any of those or perhaps have seen all of them already, feel free to choose 'other' in the poll and post what you suggest we should watch instead.

    Spoiler: MAL links for the movies











    The tentative date for the movie night is the weekend of Feb. 24th.

    Shoutout to our streamer @Swift! The hero we need but don't deserve.

    You too, can be a hero. If you have the time or interest to stream for the NF community, drop by the streamers needed thread to let us know!

    Akira's good but I'd rather avoid that because I want to read the manga soon and it'd be preferable to go in as fresh as possible.

    Perfect Blue and Paprika sound gud tho.

    Shape of Voice is still my favorite anime movie that I won't get over.

    ghibli movies might be a good theme for the time we do this.

    Shape of voice is a good option too and would make a nice rewatch for me personally. Have you read the manga btw

    I have! I read it after I watched the movie. I prefer the manga, b/c of how it develops the characters a bit better.

    yeh same here. The manga developed the mom and other characters much more than the movie wasn't able to. But the movie was produced by >kyoani so it was beautiful nonetheless.

    I do have a question should know today when my net will be on. So, as well as hosting the watch along do we qualify for the nf contributor metal? I can't wait to help with this project though. Perhaps we can branch this out into regular movies and everything.

    KyoAni those sons of bitches.

    ...sorry just bitter that they dropped Full Metal Panic.

    Anyway I can probably host an FLCL watchalong on weekends. That would be Saturday and Sunday 3 AM to 4 PM GMT.

    I can host the three Full Metal Panic recap movies as they come out, too.

    Anyone up for FLCL?

    I got it running with Rabb.it. We can watch two episodes per weekend. I can stream in the morning, Asia, and people in the US can watch at night, while people in Europe can watch damned late at night :zaru
