Perverted Anime Definitions
at least how Americans see em’
In today’s world of forced panty shots and bouncing (cough cough) ahem… you’ll be hard pressed to find an Anime or Manga that doesn’t sneak in something perverted. So here are a few words you might need to get acquainted with. Whether it’s to hate on or to love on you can’t go wrong having these definitions tucked away in the anime section of your vocabulary…
Ecchi: Pretty much anything “naughty”. Often used as a genre type, but it can mean anything from something sexy, perverted or just having a whole lot of fan service.

What I am watching Halfway Review
One Punch Man
The hype surrounding this show was the real deal! Thankfully Madhouse delivered! One Punch man revolves around Saitama who is just a hero for fun. Saitama, with his friend Genos, fight monsters that show up in City Z, and thanks to the “extreme” training regimen that drove him bald Saitama is absurdly powerful. Now when I say absurdly powerful I mean it. Everyone he fights he kills in one punch– causing him to grow bored.
Coming into this I was wondering how a show that has an MC that beats everyone in a single punch could produce awesome fight scenes. When the first villain, Vaccine Man, was beaten within the first minute of his introduction I thought, “So this is really how this is going to be huh?” Continue reading “Fall 2015 Midway Season Review”

What If Pokemon Were Real?
I remember growing up wanting nothing more than to just roam the world with all my Pokemon friends from my Gameboy, TV, and Pokemon cards. I would sit there and think of all the fun adventures we we have, all the gym badges we would win, and how I would become a true Pokemon Master! Sadly those dreams never came true. Here we are fast approaching the 20th Anniversary of Pokemon, and I think I have to face the facts.
But for fun I thought it would be fun to take a look at how things would be if our world was crawling with Pikachus, Charizards, and Zubats! To do so let’s take a little stroll down memory lane. But for fun I thought it would be fun to take a look at how things would be if our world was crawling with Pikachus, Charizards, and Zubats! To do so let’s take a little stroll down memory lane.
As a Child I was forced to make the most difficult decision of my life! Minutes into my my first playthrough of Pokemon Red Version–which is how I was introduced to Pokemon–Professor Oak made me choose between a Charmander, Squirtle, and a Bulbasaur! Immediately after which I am forced into a battle with his over confident grandson! Now in this day and age I can only Imagine how this would have actually played out. I mean if we break a Pokemon down to it’s base elements a Pokemon is merely an animal with super powers. Now I am no lawyer, but I’m pretty confident in saying that we have something along the lines of people battling their animals with other people’s animals for money in our reality. I’m also pretty confident in saying that not only is it extremely frowned upon…It’s extremely illegal! For the sake of seeing what our world would be like with Pokemon let’s imagine this concept isn’t as morally reprehensible as it is in our reality. Continue reading “What if Pokemon Were Real”
“Viz Media announced at its industry panel at New York Comic Con on Friday that it has licensed the 2011 Hunter × Hunter anime. The company plans to release the series on Blu-ray and DVD, and will dub the series into English.”
Hunter x Hunter has long been one of my favorites, and given its popularity I have been baffled as to why it wasn’t licensed in USA. I’m Really happy that it’s Viz who got it too! I can’t wait till the english dub cast is revealed!
