My Top 10 RPGS

I grew up on RPGS they were some of my favorite games when growing up on playstation one and 2 and really formed my taste in a lot of things. I recently read the latest issue of game informer which had their top 100 rpgs of all time and i thought it was an interesting list but i thought i would do my top 10 rpgs of all time.

10. Pokemon Red

Pokemon red was a big game for me and just made me love RPG games even more and just with the pokemon craze at the time it just made pokemon even more important and i still remember bring my gameboy to school and everyone playing pokemon red. Catching pokemon and training is the best thing but also very addicting thing to do.

9. Mass Effect 2

The best mass effect game in the series, 2 made me love the series. I loved the story and characters and the choices you made in the game and the universe they have created. It had a cool sci-fi story and exploring this universe was fun.

8. Ni No Kuni

This is a studio ghibli video game and it reminds me of watching a studio ghibli movie i just get the same feels and just loved everything about this game. I just love the art in the game and just reminded why i love RPG games.

7. Final fantasy 10

The first time final fantasy had voice acting and it was amazing, still one of my fave final fantasy games i really liked the characters but it also has a very interesting villain and world they have created.

6. Persona 4

The game that got me into the persona series and i just loved the gameplay from goinf to school then going to another world and fighting monsters which was so cool and had a mystery about that i just loved.

5. Dark cloud 2 (Also Known As Dark Chronicle)

I really couldn’t get into the first game but when the 2nd game came out i just fell in love it and it was thanks to the art style. It was a very different RPG game for the time but would like to see another game please ?

4. Final fantasy 8

This is the best final fantasy game made, it made me skip a lot of school because i rather play this game then do school work. I really was into the characters also the military theme it had was cool.

3. Pokemon gold

Still the best pokemon game i just love how they advanced things from pokemon red but with new pokemon to the added features made an even pokemon game. Also still has the best things from pokemon red.

2. The Witcher 3

This game surprised the fuck out of me and i have played all the dlc which is rare for me i loved this game and is one of my fave games. I loved the world and the story of the witcher 3 but everything else is amazing in this game. This is how i want a modern rpg game.

1. Persona 5

This is the JRPG game to come out since persona 4 and why i think persona series is now better than final fantasy to me and why i will always pick persona over final fantasy now. But i haven’t finished 5 and its still the best rpg of all time to me.

Maid Dragon Is Adorable And The Best Anime Of 2017 Also Has The Best Boobs (Review)

I Finally watched Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid after hearing so many great things about this anime so i binged it in 2 days and i can say i loved it. This might be in the best anime of 2017 list. This anime really surprised me because i’m not into cute comedy anime but this one just wowed me. I go to anime that is more darker, mature anime so liking this really surprised me. Also a story that focuses on lesbians is not something i really go out of way to watch but i really loved that part of the anime. Because it’s not part of one or 2 characters but there a couple of characters this plot revolves around. Also seeing one character openly express the love for one of the characters and the other one doesn’t was quite interesting to watch. Also the art, animation and colors used really stood out and something that made it feel special.

For me the best thing about this anime was the characters, these characters are interesting and very amazing to watch on the screen. Also how these characters interact was something that i loved watching but gave me feelings all the time and why i watched the anime in 2 days. First You have the main character Kobayashi who likes to get drunk and when she is drunk she lets more of her emotions out. When she gets this family with the dragon maid and Kanna and she becomes the mother of this family and it’s very sweet to see her go into this role in something she is not familiar with. You see her showing what things are in this world because with them not from this world they don’t know what things are for example like cars. Also Like when she has to be a mother to Kanna and and there is a great moment when Kanna wants to go to school and she has to do school shopping and it’s so sweet to watch. The relationship with Tohru is another interesting thing with Kobayashi because of how she acts and she doesn’t express her feeling that well when she is not drunk.

Tohru is the maid dragon of this anime and i love this character she is so sweet even though she wants to kill the human race she loves Kobayashi and will do anything for her to make her happy. Also she has big boobs which is nice and that’s what makes a lot of the comedy. As a maid she wants to do everything perfect even though she doesn’t know everything about the human world and i think that’s what makes her a great character.

There is Kanna who acts as the daughter to Kobayashi and she is so adorable and she is the cutest thing ever from her look, to how she acts and her voice. She is everything and it makes the anime a 100 times better. I love her friendship at school and you can see a start of a relationship there and then you have these moments where she learning to be a daughter and you see her doing school work and going out playing with her friends or is excited to go somewhere new i loved it. Also seeing her doing these child like things and just her interactions with other characters are funny but so adorable to watch. There is another dragon character Lucoa and she has big boobs and likes showing skin but when she interacts with the other characters it is funny but she is one of the weakest characters, she does not have much substance to her and one of the weakest parts of this anime but saying that she is a fun character. Also you have 2 male characters who interact with this group but what makes them different that have this otaku lifestyle and it’s so awesome and so funny, they read manga, playing video games also one of them is a dragon, it’s great having them in the anime.

The last Episode might have been one of the best episodes but one of the most important episodes. When Tohru father comes to take her back home and when a showdown happens between father and daughter Kobayashi finally yells out how she feels about Tohru and what a fuckin moment it was. Just to hear her finally say these things really touched Tohru and why this was a great episode and was the perfect episode to end this anime.

When Tohru and Kobayashi meet for the first time we don’t get to see that until the 2nd half of the anime and doing that made it feel different, because i expected there first meeting, that Tohru fell in love with Kobayashi straight away but when we finally see it that’s not how it went down. You see Tohru in her dragon form and with a sword in her and very angry and just hates humans. Kobayashi comes along and Tohru telling her to get away until she pulls the sword out of her and then they talk and drink and that is the moment she invites Tohru to comes work for her as a maid. Also i love the art in this scenes it gives it this raw look to it. I loved this moment but the scene was great overall.

This anime was really funny and made me laugh a lot. Because it was the interaction between these characters like seeing Kobayashi petting Kanna or seeing these dragon characters interact with things they don’t know makes for some funny moments. The humor of this anime matches my kind of humor, it’s not over the top or absurd, the comedy feels natural and something i enjoy in my comedy.

But it was the touching moments of this anime that made it something special and something that stood out so far in the year 2017. There were sad moments, happy moments and funny moments. I love the moment when Kanna is going to a sports carnival and she wants Kobayashi to come and watch her and when she can’t because she has to work. Kanna is sad and is feeling down but when you see her work out her work schedule and comes to watch her you see Kanna so happy and you can’t help to feel happy in that moment. I loved the episode when they have to attend to a con and it’s so funny, one character is there to sell their manga and other characters are helping out but the funny moments are when people think Tohru is doing cosplay it’s funny as fuck.

Overall i loved this anime it just gave the feeling of being happy while watching this anime. This anime showed what a sweet, charming and adorable anime looked like. I can see myself going back and watching this anime, to me this was special and one i will remember from 2017 also Kanna is everything she is character that gives me hope for the world she is everything.

Thanks For Reading

Why I Love: Ghost In The Shell Stand Alone Complex

So i spent a lot of time in march catching up with Ghost In The Shell stuff and one of the things really stood out and that was Stand Alone Complex. I love stand alone complex to me it was amazing and it expanded on everything that the original movie did. To me what i love most about stand alone complex is how it explores section 9 and how it explores the characters of section 9. We finally get to see bits of backstory of these characters and i love how we get more of the character from the major which i really love also i really love how the major looks in section 9.

Both of the seasons really explores complex subjects but i loved how the 2nd season explored refugees, suicide bombers and how they follow one person to change the world, its very interesting to watch part of this world. Also i loved the laughing man in the first season he was a great villain but also complex and makes you think is he really a villain? the villains of the 2nd season are also very interesting but the backstory of the villains in ghost in the shell are some of the most interesting things in stand alone complex.

The music in stand alone complex gives it this epic feel but a feel from the original movie and something i enjoy i even love listening to the music when i am not watching the anime. The music just fits perfectly like with the last 5 episodes of season one which are some of the best episodes i have watched and with the music it just gives this feel of perfection.

The movie The Solid State Society gives it this ending which fits perfectly and works with the major not part of section 9 but she is off doing her own thing which was interesting and i love how they bring back a certain famous Ghost In The Shell character. The movie ending gives stand alone complex the perfect ending.

Overall stand alone complex is the best ghost in the shell anime i have watched and over the last month or so i have watched a lot of Ghost In The Shell anime. I love how it’s a deep anime and explores a lot of themes from the movie but explores newer themes like the internet and such but it develops this characters and we learn even more about these characters which i think i love the most. Stand Alone Complex is now in my top 10 anime of all time.

A Silent Voice – A Redemption Of A Bully

silent-voice

I did a video on A Silent Voice (you can check it out here) but I wanted to write some things about it.

A Silent Voice is an amazing anime movie, it is a really great adaption of the manga which I read a year before the movie came out and thought they nailed that. This movie stayed true to the themes of bullying and seeing the character go from the bully and to get redemption for his past. And seeing him as the bully is an important part of the story and seeing this guy bully this deaf girl is hard. it gives you all these feeling but the scenes where she punches the girl is hard to watch.

This movie looks great on the big screen from the colors used in the art which gives it a look like the manga and it just works. with the animation, it makes it feel special and something beautiful on the screen. The characters look great on screen Shoko Nishimiya one of the main characters looks beautiful and adorable in anime form but all the characters look great. The other main character Shoya Ishida also looks good the screen and because he is the focus of the movie he really shines.

A Silent Voice is very special and I loved how they kept in things from the manga like the x’s on faces. They had to cut some stuff because you can’t put everything in one movie and I was okay with the stuff they cut.

Overall this was an amazing anime movie and I loved every bit of it. I am looking forward to watching it again whenever that is but I just think they nailed this adaptation with it looking beautiful in anime form. This was an amazing adaption and it makes you feel all the things, the characters make you feel and it left me with tears in my eyes.

Ghost In The Shell (2017) – Thoughts/First Impressions

ghost-shell-movie-scarlett-johansson-major

I love Ghost In The Shell anime move, stand alone complex these 2 things to me are some of the perfect anime out there. so when I knew there was a live action movie I hoped for the best but after the 2nd trailer, i knew this was going to be bad. Only then I hoped for it to be better than dragon ball evolution. So after seeing I can say it was bad, boring and was missing what I loved about ghost in the shell when it touched on the deep subjects and really explored the darker themes of Ghost In The Shell. This movie had none of these but what I will say the best thing about the live action movie was the visuals they were amazing, 10/10 stuff but everything else was just bad.

being a hardcore ghost in the shell fan I knew there was no way they would get it right from the story to the change they would make and I didn’t like the changes they made. I was hoping for some fun action scenes but even the action scenes were bland. the scenes they recreated from the anime were cool but nothing special. at end of the day it was an average movie that could have been amazing at least it was better than dragon ball evolution, I hope we never get a movie like that again but for me, ghost in the shell deserves better.

If you are reading this and have never watched ghost in the shell then you will like this movie because if it didn’t have the name ghost in the shell then I could see it being a cool sci-fi movie because there is an amazing movie here just has a bunch of bullshit in it. Also, i think the major was miscast with Scarjo I don’t think she was right and that name change I hated that shit. if I couldn’t get into the major that was a big reason why I found this movie boring. But not all actors were bad just the characters were not that interesting in the movie compared how they were interesting in the anime.

Watch the ghost in the shell anime movies because they do a better job at telling the story and going in deep with these themes of ghost in the shell and I think it looks cooler in animation. 1995 anime and stand alone complex are the best part of the ghost in the shell universe I don’t know where the future of ghost in the shell is going but I hope there are more anime movies whatever happens to this live action movie. I don’t think we need anime turned into live action movies because there is always going to be problems and you can’t get around these problems but it is Hollywood and they want the money and to fuck with things we love. I just read there the next movie they want to make a live action movie is Akira…..FUCK!!!!!!!

Goodbye Wolverine…

logan

The wolverine in the x-men movies is always the best thing about the movies. The solo x-men movies have been with hit and miss but with Logan this was the best x-men movie. But with this being Hugh Jackman’s last time as wolverine i just want to write about him as being wolverine.

Hugh Jackman as wolverine was something special with him being an Aussie but wolverine was my fave x-men character from the x-men cartoon. I remember being so excited to see the first x-men movie with my father, seeing it on the big screen and it was good, wolverine stood out straight away and i loved hugh jackman as wolverine he made that role his from the start. By the time 2nd movie rolled around they really focused on wolverine which is a good thing and bad thing. Good thing he was great as wolverine, bad thing its called the x-men not wolverine still a good movie but i was excited for hugh jackman as wolverine. We got to see some special wolverine moments from the comics in the movie. Then came x-men the last stand and this was start of the downfall of the x-men movies but wolverine was still the highlight from a terrible movie.

Finally we get a wolverine solo movie wolverine origins and i was excited for this movie… but was so let down watching this movie it was the worst x-men movie and they fucked up deadpool. Besides that it was just bad you could see hugh jackman was trying his best but it was just a bad movie and i have tried to rewatch this movie but i can’t. Fox tried to reinvent the x-men movies with first class and i will say this is my favorite x-men team movie it was so fun and awesome seeing new characters and new actors as older characters was cool also the wolverine cameo was fun.

The 2nd wolverine movie called the wolverine was alright it was better than origins but still had a lot of problems but was fun aswell and hugh jackman as wolverine was great and might have been his best wolverine yet. Days Of Future past came and once again i didn’t like the direction they were going in but what saved the movie for me was hugh jackman as wolverine he was amazing. I still haven’t seen Apocalypse because of me not being that interested in.

Logan recently came out and it was amazing for me it was a refreshing take on superhero movies and the best wolverine hugh jackman has played, he was brutal, angry and a survivor and this made for one of the best x-men movies but the best wolverine movie in the trilogy. By the end of this movie i had tears in my eyes and i knew that was the last we had seen of hugh jackman as wolverine it was sad but he went out in an epic, a way wolverine should have gone out. I just hope the next x-men just doesn’t bring him back just for the $$$.

Hugh Jackman made that wolverine his and i’m going to miss him in that role, him as wolverine meant a lot i was along for the ride until the very end and to see him say goodbye to the role was something special but also sad. Seeing how long he played wolverine and some people just know hugh jackman as wolverine and that’s something special you couldn’t have asked for a better actor playing wolverine. I just hope they let wolverine rest for a while before we see someone else as wolverine because that would just hurt.

My Anime Story: How i Got Back Into Anime

tumblr_oh5a4cmb401vxw3g6o1_500

Back in the day i was into anime from Evangelion, Ghost In The Shell, Akira, DBZ and Pokemon but then school shit happened and i just lost interest and video games became more important to me. But i still would dip my toe into anime now and then from Studio Ghibli movies, Afro Samurai and some other random anime that would appear on tv or would get hype. When i was getting out of american comics because i was getting bored of the stories i was reading and also comics becoming more expensive and at the same time i got Netflix for the first time. I started off watching Netflix original stuff but then i heard the hype of Attack On Titan (this was when the hype was overboard it was all over my Facebook feed.) So i checked it out and i just kept watching it and i really liked it, then i remember hearing about Death Note and watched that and loved that, then i went onto Psycho Pass and thought that was amazing and then i started to go to places like Crunchyroll and AnimeLab and checked out things like Parasyte and Psycho ass season 2. My interest in anime just grew at the same time i found a store that sold anime and manga and started reading manga and finding stuff i loved in this store. Also i started catching up on Studio Ghibli movies. Also started watching people who talked about anime like Digibro, Super Eyepatch Wolf and others that got me interested in more anime. I dipped my toes into watching anime week 2 week which was interesting by the start of 2017 i realised that’s not how i really like how i watch anime i rather binge watch episodes. While going on this quest that i started to get back into anime i started learning about the studios, directors, cast and behind the scenes stuff.

original

The more anime i watched the more i enjoyed the different stories from Death Parade which was such an interesting story about death which i had never seen before to Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure which was bizarre as fuck. But going back and re watching things like Dragon Ball Z, Evangelion and Ghost In The Shell showed me how much i missed anime and how much i loved from the fun over the top characters and fights in DBZ. Or seeing characters dealing with being alone and being depressed while fighting in mechs in Evangelion. Seeing how in depth anime can get interested me the most but also becoming a fan of Japanese culture.

I got to see another anime movie on the big screen, the last time that happened was with the first Pokemon movie with my father but to see Dragon Ball Z Resurrection F and i loved it, was so cool to see DBZ on the big screen and being a fan of this series since i was in school. Tt was an awesome moment And Also around the same time i started checking out anime i didn’t know much about, just to give a shot and my taste in anime grew from things like FLCL (but someone told me to watch that) Space Dandy, Your Lie In April and other stuff. I finally had enough to do a top 10 anime of all time and my anime list really helped.

So why i got back into anime ? i always loved cartoons (Ren And Stimpy, Invader Zim, Regular Show, Bob’s Burger) and i always loved anime so to go back to anime always made sense and the story telling, characters and animation made me love anime more but made me stay with anime this time. I have been back in thee anime loop for about 3 years now, and i have never thought about stop watching it. Also being an adult and with services like Crunchyroll, AnimeLab helps me not to stray away. After being into Comic Books, Video Games, Movies, TV Shows, Manga and Anime – Video Games, Anime and manga are the 3 things that has never bored me.

In 2017 My love for anime has just grown and i plan on watching more anime and watch more people talk about anime on youtube. I might not know everything about anime but i am always willing to learn and why i research a lot of stuff and watch people talk about anime on youtube. I plan to watch more anime this year and catching up with a lot of the older stuff i missed when i was not watching anime or that’s the goal anyway. Trying to stay away from the newer stuff besides the new season of Berserk (yes i know it’s going to be shit) but also going into genres that i haven’t checked out before and watch the darker stuff that i love and slice of life fun stuff. So that’s why i got back into anime.
