Quick! Something particularly exciting has happened! And, for some reason, there's a reporter on the scene, complete with cameraman! At a particularly exciting moment, the reporter has ''got'' to turn to the camera and say something to the effect of "AreWeGettingThis" The answer is usually yes, but it's anyone's guess as to whether the camera will survive the episode.

There is always the possibility that the "reporter" type person will see the entire event happen and conclude before they can ask this important question. In these cases the question becomes more like: "Did we/you get that?" "Did somebody record that?" They may even beg: "Please tell me somebody got that on video." The results are generally similar.



[[folder: Anime and Manga ]]

* Possible variation: in ''Anime/NarutoTheMovieNinjaClashInTheLandOfSnow'', the movie director keeps yelling "Keep filming, keep filming!" every time someone attacks the princess/actress Naruto's group is protecting.
* A variation (sans the stock phrase) appears in ''Manga/PenguinRevolution'' when Ryo and his rival Narazaki get into a fight on the set of the {{sentai}} show they're filming. Since the episode being filmed calls for their characters to fight, the director of the episode immediately demands that the cameras start rolling.
* Used in an episode of ''{{Anime/Pokemon}}''. The English dub had the reporter comment that Team Rocket was making a dramatic exit through the roof - then she [[BreakingTheFourthWall turned to the camera and said gleefully]] "Just like our ratings will!"
* This is what happens in ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'' when some rogue Digimon crash a Christmas Eve concert.
* In the very first tournament arc in ''Manga/DragonBall'', the announcer actually asks Kuririn and Jackie Chun to redo one part of their fight at a slower pace because they were going so fast nobody could see it. Chun consents, as it's for television, but asserts that this he won't do it again, so they'd better pay attention.
* Happens in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' during Trunks' and Goten's match at the tournament. Unfortunately, the kids are moving so quickly that the cameras can't keep up.
