Anime RE-Claimed: One Punch Man

So this is one of those animes that I've heard about here and there. While it looked interesting I was SUPER concerned that it's extremely simple premise was going to be convoluted in "animeness". If you haven't read my previous post, this is the definition of "Animeness" What is "animeness"? Animeness as I define it, is taking a simple and interesting concept and needlessly convoluting it to the point where the concept isn't interesting anymore. So what is "One Punch Man" about? "One Punch Man" follows the story of Saitama, a chrome domed guy who's a superhero as a hobby. Saitama has the ability to defeat enemies in (eponymously) one punch and it's awesome.

Anime RE-Claimed: High School Of The Dead

So as written hither-to in my previous post about my disappointment in modern anime I said I'd eventually check out some animes I've had my eyes on and it looks like that day has come. Yesterday I checked out "Highschool Of The Dead". "High School Of The Dead" is one of those anime series that constantly referenced for copious amount of fan service;

Case in point

Anyway, on my quest to inspect anime I've diced to give this series a shot and while I've only seen the first episode, I'm gonna drop a review and my thoughts. So here we go!

Do Comic Books Have A Diversity Problem?

No. That's the short answer. No. No and Nope. And in case you didn't read it the first time, NO! Sadly, there are some individuals who won't accept "No." as answer and will demand a more lengthy discussion of the topic. Okay, fine twist my arm, as if I haven't addressed the topic, time and time and time again, no. Because someone decided there is a contingency of people who really believe that comic books are dominated by extremely racist, sexist, misogynist bigots, I believe I have to address this using my African American immunity. Let's dive in.

Album Review: "One More Light" by. Linkin Park

Welcome back Linkin Park! After "The Hunting Party" which in my opinion was open ass on a copy machine bad (save for a few tracks), Linkin Park is BACK with a capital "B" with "One More Light" and man is this album good! Let's dive in!

STRANGE LOG: 5-18-2017

Howdy! So while the news week has been incredibly slow visa-vi film, TV, comic books and video games, I felt nonetheless that a Strange Log was in order just to sort out the various riff-raff that isn't worth an entire article.

Interview With: GoodbadFlicks

So this is something I'm trying to do more of in the future and this is the beginning. I'm a Youtuber and I enjoy many other Youtubers but one of my favorite Youtubers is a guy who runs the channel Goodbadflicks. If you haven't checked out his channel, IT'S INCREDIBLE. Cecil Trachenburg is a film reviewer who is INSANELY level headed and makes his points calmly and factually. I sent a feeler out to see if he'd be down for an interview and he was down to do it! If you haven't checked out his channel, DO SO! He's a great reviewer with a calm voice that I'm ashamed I couldn't do an audio version of this interview. So here's the interview, hope you enjoy!

My Thoughts On "The Defenders" Trailer

I haven't discussed Marvel's Netflix series on my Blog much, not because I haven't seen them, that's a bold face lie, I watched the hell outta Seasons 1 & 2 of "Daredevil", loved me some "Jessica Jones", had fun with "Luke Cage" and I'm still unsure what to make of "Iron Fist". That being said, Marvel has been owning film and while DC is killing it in the TV realm (more or less) Marvel's Netflix series raised the bar and now they're diving into the obvious and eventual team up series "The Defenders" and finally we have a trailer for it. Let's dive in!

My Thoughts On "The Dark Tower" Trailer

Not only did we get a trailer for "House Of Cards" Season 5, but now we got 2 trailers! We got a trailer for "The Dark Tower" & the upcoming Netflix series "The Defenders", combining the characters of Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones & Iron Fist to stand against the great evil known as The Hand. So what do I think of these two? Let's dive in and see what we can speculate!
