Impressions: Dragon Ball Super Blu-Ray Sets Parts 4 & 5

Japan News - Fri, 01/11/2019 - 03:00

It’s hard to believe that Dragon Ball Super ended almost over a year ago—time surely flies fast. It’s even crazier that the Universe 6 arc was almost three years ago as well, which also feels recent. Even though I recently watched these episodes due to their recent dub / Blu-ray releases, it’s all fresh in my mind.

The Universe 6 was a pretty good teaser of what was to come later throughout the series, and the Future Trunks arc was great with the return of a beloved character and the introduction of a concept that has been all over the fandom for years—the concept of an evil Goku, in other words, Goku Black.

Annotated Anime: Mob Psycho 100 Season 2 Episode 1

Japan News - Sun, 01/06/2019 - 19:50

If you read my Mob Psycho 100 review from last year, you know that it’s one of my favorite series from 2016. It was really quirky with a great cast of characters, great animation and story—Shigeo and Reigen’s chemistry as student and mentor, respectively, was overall great. Earlier last year, an OVA episode named “The Miraculous Unknown Psychic” was released recapping all the events from the first season narrated by Reigen Arataka in form of him attempting to write a bestselling book.

I usually don’t bother watching previous season recaps, especially if the series is still fresh in my mind but watching this one was enjoyable—it was well executed, and it shows the relationship between Shigeo and Reigen hasn’t changed.

Japan News - Wed, 11/14/2018 - 12:00

Being the big otaku that I am, I'm always open-minded to expand my horizons and check out any manga, to the point that I expanded to manhwa and manhua which are Korean and Chinese "manga," respectively. One of my favorites has to be Tower of God, which personally I would put above many istanbul escort manga series. Earlier this year, I stumbled upon the existence of Radiant. What istanbul escort caught my attention the most aside from the plot was the fact that it was made by a French author. I really escort istanbul made me want to check it out but unfortunately, the series wasn't gonna officially come out until September.
