Today Blizzard released another Overwatch short, this time featuring the two samurai Genji and Hanzo. In the short we get more backstory on the rivalry between them and why Hanzo hates Genji so much. Is it because his robot suit looks cooler than his sweet robot kicks? Watch the video to find out!

Hot off the heels of the Force Awaken release, last Thursday on Good Morning America, Disney released a teaser trailer for the next movie in line for the Star Wars universe, Rouge One. This new story in the Star Wars universe will be set shortly before the events of A New Hope, where  a group of Rebel spies are on a mission to steal the plans for the Empire’s new weapon, the Death Star.

Apple announced two new products this week, and while I was hoping for another version of the Apple Watch, we got the next best thing; two new Apple devices. Now the when the 6s details started coming to light, one of the things rumored was a smaller iPhone 6;  and when the iPhone 6s finally came out a smaller screen was nowhere to be seen. Just a few months later, many are happy with Apple’s announcement with iPhone 6 SE. The SE is something special that embodies qualities of both the iPhone  and 6s. 

The specs of the SE are definitely top notch for a phone this size, including almost all of the upgrades Apple made to the 6s, with the exception of 3D touch.

Some specs include:

  • Retina display
  • A9 chip with 64-bit architecture
  • 12-megapixel iSight camera
  • True Tone flash
  • 4K video recording at 30fps
  • Apple Pay

Starting price for the SE begins at $399 for the 16gb version to $499 for 64gbs. While you’re getting a great deal on what is pretty much a 6s at a cheaper price, 16gbs is pretty underwhelming when you consider how big apps,photos, videos and music is.

No GravatarPokémon is turning 20 this year, and Nintendo is pulling out all the stops. Pokémon Red and Green were released in Japan on February 27, 1996, with the American Red and Blue released two years later on September 28, 1998. Since then, Pokémon has gone on to make more than 50 games, an anime running for about 19 years, 18 movies, and has made more than $37 billion world wide. So when one of your biggest franchises is about to turn 20, you celebrate. 2016 is going to be the year of the Pokémon.

 

Nintendo began their #Pokemon20 campaign, where they ask fans to tell them their favorite Pokémon memory on Twitter, Instagram, and Youtube. It’s a great way for both old fans and new fans alike to reminisce about what got them into Pokémon in the first play and why the love the franchise. It’s also a good way for Nintendo to spread the word about upcoming events, games, and merchandise for the fans.

The bundle includes both original Pokémon Red and Blue preinstalled and 2 cover plates featuring Charizard and Blastoise.

The Pokemon Company revealed a Pokemon character today via the above trailer. The character is called Volcanion. Here is how the Pokemon is described (via Nintendo Everything):

” Unlike any Pokémon discovered before it, this Pokémon is both Fire and Water type. It uses fire and water to create steam within its body, expelling explosive shock waves and boiling steam from the arms on its back. The power is said to be great enough to blow away an entire mountain, gouging out the earth and changing the shape of the land. “

Its unknown how you’ll be able to get Volcanion. He “can’t be encountered through regular gameplay”. The trailer says “more details coming soon.”

What do you think of this Pokemon?

No GravatarIt’s four o’clock in the morning. I should be sleeping, but my mind won’t stop buzzing. The only sound you can hear is the sounds of rapid typing as my hands shake from the overload of caffeine. I tell myself, “I need to get some sleep,” as I type in the URL for Crunchyroll in search of a good anime. There’s been some buzzing going about the Tumblrverse that a certain anime has come swooping in and grabbing the attention of many pastel-cute bloggers, and I decided to investigate.  I prepared strawberries for a snack and a couple of water bottles for the binge watching session. I was ready. I turned out the lights, plugged in my headset, cranked the volume up to eleven (yes, it goes to eleven), and pressed play.

Right away I’m greeted by cherry blossoms drifting through the air and a soft tune.  Three girls stood before me in school uniform. Then, singing. The camera pans upwards onto the singers face, and the next thing you know the previously soft tune turns into an up beat poppy melody as the girl runs towards the camera and throws off her school jacket. Was there a point in doing that? I don’t know. All I know is that the sun is peeking through my window, and I can hear colors. Anyway, the camera starts twirling around in circles as the young lady continues to run across the street towards it, then she jumps over some stairs, freeze framing. How does she plan on landing that jump? What was the point in that? Was she so filled with joy that the consequence of jumping over a set of stairs and injuring herself not phase her? Kids these days. That’s when her monologue starts. She introduces herself as Honoka Kosaka, a second year high school student. She goes on to tell how her school, Otonokizaka High School, is in trouble and will be closing down as the camera shows a shot of the three girls from earlier (including Honoka) surround the billboard with the official statement of school closure…or something official like that. All three look horrified, and Honoka falls backwards fainting, claiming her life as a high school student is over. I mean I guess I can relate; if something I  enjoyed and spent most of my life doing that had no effect on my skills as a person whatsoever suddenly came to a stop I’d be devastated.

What’s better than gals being pals?

And that’s when the intro started.

The intro was the silent messenger that informed me, “Koji, this anime is going to ruin your life,” as cute high school girls danced around a stage and sang. I was captivated by a particular short haired girl who came across as the tomboy of the group. At this point I’m so sleep deprived and running on so much caffeine my head felt light and heavy at the same time, and my eye wouldn’t. Stop. Twitching. But no. I must watch this anime, as a service to my country. I downed my fifth cup of coffee, and continued to watch. The intro ends, and the sudden urge to purchase Nenderoids of the girls came to me, but it was such a small urge at the time that I was able to shake it off. The episode continues as Honoka awakens in the nurses office, brushing off the encounter with the school notice as a dream and skips merrily down the hallway while her fellow classmates look on in concern. She then finds herself back where she fainted, in front of the notice board, and exclaims in disbelief. Later on, her friends start plotting a way to gather enough attention to the school so that more students want to enroll there. She goes home, unsure of what to do, when she notices a pamphlet for a popular school among young girls called UTX. She then takes it upon herself to visit the school, where she’s greeted by a massive display of three girls greeting the new coming students. The girls on the display, as it turns out, are school idols, students that partake in the activity of song and dance while gaining immense popularity on the internet. It was then that Honoka decided that’s what her school needed, and runs off to find her friends.

Perfect_Visual_Collection_Smile_and_Dream

Throughout the first season of the show Honoka, Kotori, and Umi recruit various girls for their idol group, Muse, further gaining popularity on the internet and thus having more students enroll in their school as well as competing in live competitions. Now, my opinion on this anime is as follows; it has ruined my life and I cannot stop talking about it, 10/10 would recommend it. But beware: it gets a little gay sometimes and one of them likes to casually grope the other members boobs. So if you’re not into girls being platonic and gropey and just a little gay with each other, I wouldn’t watch it. But if you’re like me and love girls in platonic close friendships, then watch it. Sure, the ending made me cry, but at least I have this Rin Hoshizora body pillow to talk about it to, and this Nozomi Tojo Nenderoid to stare at. Oh, by the way, they also have a smartphone game called School Idol Project that, if you’re into rhythm games, I highly recommend. I myself can’t get a hang of the hard levels, but maybe after I actually fall asleep and sleep off this caffeine I can finally feel my hands well enough to play it. They also have a movie premiering in various theaters across the country, so if you’re interested in that click here.

I guess that’s the end of my first review, I hope you all enjoyed it. I’m going to pass out now.

Peace out.

No GravatarIt’s been 18 years since the last Dragon Ball anime, Dragon Ball GT, concluded in Japan. And let’s be honest, a lot of fans would like to forget that series ever aired. The series is not considered to be canon and had very little input from the original series creator. A few years ago the Kai series began, which cuts out much of the fluff and filler from Dragon Ball Z and also redraws many scenes to give the show a shiny new coat. But not we are about to get an all new anime titled Dragon Ball Chou. Chou can be translated to “super” and it seems that the english title will infect be “Dragon Ball Super.”

Dragon-Ball-Freeza-Super

Dragon Ball Chou will take place after the events of the Majin Buu saga, the last saga in the Dragon Ball Z series. It hasn’t been confirmed if it will take place before or after the recent movies Battle of Gods and Resurrection ‘F’, which are considered cannon. But like the movies, series creator Akira Toriyama will over see the new series and be heavily involved.

In an official press release from Toei Animation, Masako Nozawa, voice actress for Goku, Gohan, Gotten, and Bardock, had this to say. “I’ve used the word ‘cho’ (super) in so many commercials, games and other media, it is fantastic that the long awaited Dragon Ball Super will finally begin. I hope that this series will last a long time and have the same impact around the world as its predecessor.”

ancestry_gohan_goten_bardock_goku_dbz_hd-wallpaper-358861

Osamu Nozaki, a producer at Fuji TV said, “As I read the plot I’ve a;ready received from Akira Toriyama, my dreams for this begin to expand. An enemy even stronger than Buu or Freeza may appear…”

Dragon Ball Chou is set to air this July on Fuji TV on Sundays at 9:00 am.

Batman v Superman

No GravatarWonder 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!

What do you think of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman now that we’ve seen her in the role? Let us know in the comments!
