Wonder Woman

The casting choice for Wonder Woman in Superman v. Batman: Dawn of Justice was met with a lot of skepticism. Gal Gadot was an interesting choice to play Wonder Woman to say at the very least.

With this picture, I think Zack Snyder quieted many of those that were upset by the choice. Gal Gadot definitely stepped up to the plate as Wonder Woman!

Another character has been cast for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League – Jason Momoa as Aquaman!

For any of you that are fans of the Game of Thrones series, you’ll recognize Jason Momoa as Khal Drogo! He performed amazingly in Game of Thrones so I have faith that he’ll do well as Aquaman.

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice will hit theatres on May 6, 2016.

How do you feel about Jason Momoa as Aquaman? How do you feel about Aquaman being cast? Let us know in the comments!

Inspired by Adventure Time, Minecraft, and Legend of Zelda, May’s Loot Crate has to be my favorite so far! Loot Crate is a monthly subscription box filled with nerdy goodies – toys, stickers, t-shirts, etc. It’s like getting nerd Christmas every month! This month featured a Legend of Zelda t-shirt. If you look closely, it’s Link made out of words. My very favorite item in this Loot Crate was the Adventure Time tin. Not only do you get an awesome character tin, but you get a blind bag figure inside. My tin was Fionna and I got BMO inside! This was my favorite because those are two of my favorite Adventure Time characters.

A very close second for favorite item is the Legend of Zelda key chain. It doubles as a bottle opener and it has a picture of the famous scene, “It’s dangerous to go alone…” I always love when Loot Crates come with practical items. Another item worth mentioning was a Minecraft blind bag “hanger,” which I guess works as a key chain because the ring on it is sturdy enough for one. I got a skeleton.

Other items in this month’s Crate are tons and tons of stickers from Polaris and Maker studios, as well as a soundtrack for the talk show The Friend Zone.

One strange thing about this month’s Loot Crate, however, is that it didn’t come with the usual monthly magazine that explains what came in it and the occasional article. Maybe it was just a mistake and they forgot to put it in my Crate?

Either way, I would consider May’s Loot Crate to be my all-time favorite so far. If you like what you see, Loot Crate is $20 per month, including shipping. Go to LootCrate.com to sign up and be sure to follow Loot Crate on Facebook for discounts and contests.

The light novel series better known by its anime, Sword Art Online, has already spawned a console game and it looks like its second console game is getting a great treatment. The first game has only been available on the Japanese market to the chagrin of many fans. The second game has been announced for release in Taiwan with a great perk. The game will be released in traditional Chinese and English. Which means the fanbase of English speaking countries around the world may cheer to this Asian release.

I can’t play them because of DRM you say? No worries! The game will be released on the PS Vita, a completely region free console (thank you Sony). So pre-order a copy at your local importer today, today is a great day for English speaking anime fans everywhere.

Set in an alternate storyline this game will probably surprise and please you in ways the anime couldn’t.

This new game will be released April 24 of this year.

Anticipation killing you, waiting to see what the English dub for Attack on Titan will be like?  Well, you’re in luck! FUNimation released this clip for a first look:

Well, it’s not much, but it’s a little something. It seems good, but I’d prefer to hear more in regards to Eren, Mikasa, Armin, etc. All we can do is wait for more!

Current Anime/Manga Obsession: Attack On Titan

No Gravatar

News came about just a few days ago that Anime Limited has gained the license for the original soundtrack for the popular anime series Attack on Titan. The soundtrack contains 16 tracks, both inserts and background music, from the anime all composed by Hiroyuki Sawano, who has also composed songs for Gundam Unicorn, Guilty Crown and Kill la Kill. Songs include Attack On Titan, The Reluctant Heroes, Call Your Name, Eye-Water, Counter Attack-Mankind, and Rittaikidou.

We can expect a physical CD release later this summer, but as of right now, you can buy and download the entire soundtrack from all of the popular digital music stores, such as iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon.
