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.
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.

Okay. I just finished watching the Assassination Classroom live action movie and …..
Every now and then a game will come along that flies under the radar. This is very true in the JRPG world, since it’s not mainstream unless it has Final and Fantasy in the title. A lot of these sleeper hits come from the creators of FF, whether they are still employed by Square Enix or not. Chrono Trigger, Xenogears, Shadow Hearts, Lost Odyssey, all created by Square or former employees and all underground hits. The Last Remnant features the Unlimited Saga team, and will be the next in line to fall under the category of a truly great, unsung hero.
You’d think when you have a game that was released in 2008, you would have finished playing it by now.
But then you finish playing it, and you don’t know what to do with your life anymore.
Which brings me to the game I’m going to talk about, The Last Remnant.
Before we begin, I just want all of you to know that, on the first episode of Plastic Memories, I cried like a little girl. I’d like to say I’m ashamed of myself, but the truth is, this anime just has that many feels. I believe that’s why some people call it Plastic Feels instead of Plastic Memories.
Despite how heart rending some of the scenes were, I really did enjoy this anime. The emotional scenes were emotional and never failed to bring tears, but they were also offset by some really nice humor that lessened the, “I just wanna curl up into a ball and cry.” moments.
Finally saw Saint Seiya – Legend of Sanctuary ( and by finally I mean with subs. seriously the movie came out in June and didn’t get subs until Dec) and I thought I share some of my thoughts about it.
“It’s so nice to feel special for once!”
Fire Emblem: Awakening is a strategy based RPG that covers the story of a war between several fantasy nations. It is very strong across all areas of the game, having particularly good character development and interaction, engaging gameplay and high quality music.
