On October 18, the year-long collabo between Porter Robinson, Madeon and A-1 Pictures bore fruit in the form of a gorgeous, six-minute music video. It’s 2016, and this is the internet, so naturally a couple of controversies sprang up around the video’s launch. Mods of the anime subreddit declared a ban on the discussion of Shelter, since it didn’t conform to the site’s stated definition of anime. This ruling would be overturned later, but what couldn’t be taken back were the death threats lobbed at the moderators.
Vorgelia, Shadon and The Subtle Doctor dive in and discuss what makes anime anime, whether or not artists should be responsible for behavior their art may incite, making bikes, the moons of Jupiter, Hulk Hogan, and…oh, they also discuss the music video itself!
