What Anime Means to Me

 

  We all have reasons for why we throw ourselves into the world of Anime. Some of us are in it for the art, while some of us are in it for the adventure.

What if Pokemon Were Real

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.

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”
