Gantz first started of as a Manga written and illustrated by Hiroya Oku, it was adapted as an Anime back in 2004 and now have also become a 3D CGI Movie that’s specifically covering the “Osaka Arc” from the manga. (The Anime didn’t cover this arc as it wasn’t enough manga material at the time for the show to get there.) I have both read the Manga and watched the Anime and now watched the movie on Netflix.
This rant was made prior to all the recent news of upcoming DLC and other things as I’ll primarily talking about the ending mostly. Beware of lots of capslock rage and incoherent words haha.
Onwards to Part 2 I will talk about my Anime highlights of 2016 and, well there is quite a lot so lets get down to it shall we?
I’m not gonna sugarcoat this, 2016 sucked as a year, just as a year in general. Not specifically animated or gamewise. Just fuck 2016.
So many good people died, tragedies have happened all across the world, USA got Donald Trump as a president and it’s terrifying and just so many things happening this year that it is probably going to go down as a year to be remembered. And not in a good way.
Thankfully though for anime and game fans, we actually had quite a good year and had some really awesome games and anime that I think are worth mentioning.
This is not going to be a Top10 or really a list per se, but just me telling you guys my personal favorite anime and games that have come out this year that I loved.
We all have our favorite openings that get us pumped up for new episodes or simply something that reminds you of all the adventures you had with all these characters.
I’m gonna list my own personal favorite openings that I never skipped when the series was still airing and also some I maratoned through and still didn’t skip them no matter what! because even if the last episode you saw ended on a cliffhanger, you just can’t skip that awesome opening!
If you’re like me, the only real experience you’ve had with Mulan in terms of film involves lots of lovely singing and a wise-cracking miniature dragon. Well, Mulan: Rise of a Warrior is nothing like that movie, although I imagine that’s not particularly surprising considering Disney’s penchant for…well, being Disney. That aside, I quite enjoyed the movie which shows what I’m assuming is a more realistic portrayal of Mulan’s story. Though some parts of the story are a bit iffy, Mulan as a character shone, ultimately leaving me more than satisfied with the film.
