SO I was wondering about what would be a good plan for steady relevant content. I personally enjoy reading/listening to others’ take on episodes of my favorite anime, and I would rather write what I would like to read. So I’ve decided that it would be more of a fit for me to choose three anime this season to follow.
The first will be God of high school, the second will be Re: Zero S2, of course. The third is still a work in progress. I’m thinking either Maou Gakuin or Deca Dense, something that’s new. So expect ReZero and GOH posts coming up this week, and you’ll see which anime I choose very soon. Continue reading “Quick Update – Following A Few Anime Series”
Re:Turn of Re:Zero
I’ll admit, when season 2 started I was thinking to myself, “This fool has already tossed Rem aside, and we already know the death loop formula.” I finished episode one, raging at how the author refuses to give Rem any kind of win, thus I figured the Re:Zero’s magic ended. I wasn’t sure why the author decided to turn the focus to saving Rem when there are more immediate dangers such as the cult. After finishing episodes two and three, my suspicions were confirmed. This anime has lost its storytelling prowess and skill once Betelgeuse was killed, it’s done, time to move on, R.I.P Re:Zero! Then there was episode four, and the moment that gave me a swift axe kick to the head. The moment when Re:Zero Season 2 finally pulled me back in.

Infinity War’s True Power: Investment
So by now, I’m sure most of us have seen Marvel’s Infinity War. If you have not, come back after you watch it because we’re going into light spoiler territory here. This will be more of my thoughts and feelings regarding a particular aspect of the movie, rather than just a review.
The Power of Feels
Out of all the Marvel movies I’ve seen only a few managed to be more than “good” to “great”. Those few are The Avengers, Captain America: Winter Soldier and now Infinity War. However there’s one thing that I never thought these movies could do until now, and that created this unwavering attachment and fear of loss: “The Investment”. All eighteen or so movies, and not once did I believe these heroes were in true danger..

Black Panther is A Better Movement than Movie
I know this is super, super late! I’ve had so many hours to ponder how I felt about the movie overall after watching nearly three weeks ago.
When the movie finished and the credits fluttered down once more after the after-credits -scene (…..After that), I couldn’t but help feel disappointed – oh not at the movie, but at the expectations I had of the movie. This is not a review by the way, rather an exploration of the phenomenon that is, Black Panther. If I was asked what I thought, I would say I really enjoyed the movie! It had such an interesting world and believable characters with identifying motivations. Needless to say, it failed to blow me away as a complete package the way the Winter Soldier did. Thanks to some questionable CG and horrible plot conveniences (I’m looking at you magical all-powerful Vibranium) it failed to be amazing, but Black Panther is providing something different than Winter Soldier so they tend to be separate conversations.
My reasoning for writing this post is to express a simple and obvious thought: Black Panther is a better movement than a movie.

So Let’s Talk “Justice League” The Movie
Have you ever seen a group of siblings all varying in personalities? Most of them seem to be spoiled apples but then there’s that one kid who exceeds all expectations and goes forth to not only avoid the same path but create a greater, more amazing legacy of its own? Well, now we know who that sibling is in the DC family… Well, it’s still Wonder Woman but Justice League did manage to come behind and be a serviceable movie, nothing more. And… That’s kind of a problem.
This may prove fatal to many who were hoping Justice League was the movie to put the DC Universe on the same playing field with Marvel Studios. Truthfully, I own more DC comics than Marvel so I do wish for DC to get on a stable path, they just can’t seem to find their formula. Keep in mind, being an okay/good movie is not bad, at least it wouldn’t be until you realized the movie had a $300 million dollar budget. That accompanied with the opening week of around $96 million, it then stars to become ugly. Several months ago predictions of the movie making $130 million were considered being pessimistic and now look at where we are. Continue reading “Why Justice League Was Okay… And That’s Not Okay”
