With Chroma Squad's three story routes complete, Sal is ready to take on Chantelise's final boss again. Now that he's found a better defensive item, there's a slight chance that he could turn the tables on this deadly foe. If not, then he can always hunt down the game's hidden treasures.
Will Sal succeed in helping Chante and Lise accomplish their goal or will he fail miserably again? Find out at 9:00 p.m. Central Standard Time on Japanator's Twitch channel to see if his new plan will grant him victory.
If this battle ends quicker than expected, then Sal plans to embark on his next journey, which might be related to a certain game series by the company known as Falcom.
For a good while, my only experience with the Ultra franchise was Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends, which was directed by Koichi Sakamoto (Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger and Ultraman Ginga S’ Director). Honestly, I’m still baffled by the fact that I didn't invest in the series back then. I mean, the movie had guys in suits knocking guys in rubber monster costumes through planets; therefore making it a good reason for me to check out the other titles.
This week's Week Ender is all about the Virtual Reality and the great worlds beyond that VR brings us that are great settings for fantasy action anime. There's always something interesting with characters from a world similar to our own be thrust into a fantasy world that is familiar yet different.
So let's strap on those VR headsets and jump into a different world that may just be too real.
Is there an ending from a VR themed anime that I didn't include? SHARE IN THE COMMENTS BELOW! I wanna know!
At last, the Japan Animator Expo project has uploaded a trailer for their upcoming season. From the looks of it, the third installment sounds like it'll be better than ever. I mean, we get to see another Tsuburaya hero get the anime short treatment.
Based on the list of the newer shorts was revealed a week ago, I can't wait to see how Akitoshi Yokoyama (Eva and Summer Wars' Key Animation) will handle the Giant of Light. Of course, a new animation that features Daoko is another fine treat to look forward to.
Otakon 2015 is upon us! East Coast's largest anime con will roll out in full force tomorrow and throughout the weekend. As if it's easing its way into a 4-day event, Otakon's Matsuri even starred Back-On to perform some songs to get things going early.
Confession time: When I first set out to write about GATE, I was actually prepared to defend it. That's a weird stance to take with regards to a program I had yet to even watch, I'll admit, but I really was about to get all political about the whole thing. Perhaps it was because some folks out there were insisting that GATE was some kind of propaganda tool for the dread specter of Japanese militarism that got my goat up, ready to act irrationally defensive simply as a way to displaying contrast to what I perceived to be a pack of self-righteous jerks.
Thankfully, I didn't need to resort to my prepared talking points, at least not based on GATE's first three episodes. And while it is true that one would be hard-pressed to find an anime that's friendlier to Japan's armed forces and the notion that they can be used (which is itself a political hot potato at its core), it's hardly secret propaganda.
Thanks to a YouTuber Kintamayama and his wonderful sumo coverage, we got a rare look at the ceremonial Kesho-Mawashi, or entrance ceremony belts that the sumo wrestlers are wearing in the current sumo wrestling tournament held in Nagoya. Japan.
