Fire Force

Fire-ForceWiki.fandom.comI’m going to talk about this cool anime called ,”Fire Force, which was produced by David Production. It came out quite recently and the main reason  I wanted to see it was because it was an anime centered around fire fighters which I think I should have seen coming besides the title being a dead give away. Anime as a whole has managed to make anything look cool and exciting and they have pretty much gone after almost every job/sport known to man. But, this is the first anime show that’s based off of firefighters that I know of.

Anyway, this show is mainly centered around, Shinra, who is widely known in the Academy has the crazed “Devil” because of his fire ability that comes out of his feet combined with the fact that he has a tendency to make a crazed smile in the wrong kind of situations. Basically, his classmates thought he was a dangerous nut job. He still passed the academy training with flying colors and was sent off to his first unit in the Fire Force.

TheOtakuAuthor.comNow, the Fire Force has two main jobs and they are to kill the ‘infernals’ which are creatures born from human beings that seem to combust into flames for unknown reasons then lose control of themselves and go on a rampage. Their second job is to find the cause of the reason why people are turning into infernals and put a stop to it.

For them fighting infernals is hard enough, but with hints of a conspiracy happening within the Fire Force and one of them being that one of the other companies might know the secret to the sudden human combustion, it makes Shinra and the others wonder. If another company knows the reason behind it, then why haven’t they put a stop to it? Also, are the other terrorist characters that have been causing havoc lately being employed by said company? If so, why?

pinterest.comThere are many more mysteries happening in this anime and I bet their is more to come soon, since this is a ongoing series. But, if you prefer to read it then you’ll be happy to know that its a manga, too. So, if you can’t wait to see the end then I would go for the manga. I can’t wait to see what happens next in the show and see what is the cause behind the birth of the infernals and why they exist in the first place.

Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey

GameWatcher.comHello everyone, I hope your having a wonderful day.

Today I’m going be talking about Atelier Firis which is the sequel game to Atelier Sophie, which came out in November of 2015. I really enjoyed playing the first game so much that I couldn’t wait to play the next one. A general summary of the game if your unfamiliar with the series is that your main character is an alchemist and your job is to collect items, ingredients or destroy monsters in order to create items using alchemy to help solve your or other peoples problems.

For this installment, your main character is Firis a shy, super good girl character who has an unique ability to find ore in mines. Her ability comes in handy since she lives in an underground city that only a select few get to go out or in. According to the story only certain people can go in and out the gate and for some reason Firis isn’t one of them whose greatest desire is to go outside the city and travel the outside world. But, no one (especially her parents) believes that she can go outside and survive long enough to tell the tale. Until she meets a certain someone who literally blows a hole in her world and gives her the tools to survive the outside world, so she can prove to everyone that she’s not a weak little girl to be coddled.

GameTrend.comWhen I first played the game I felt like I was thrown back into my childhood because the graphics reminded me a lot of when I was playing video games on my PlayStation 2. It wouldn’t have bothered me if it was the same level of graphics from the first game which is wasn’t. The Atelier Sophie was way better graphic wise and I would like to think its because the first game’s release didn’t do so well as the developers hoped, so they had to cut the budget in certain areas. Even with that in mind, I simply am enjoying this game a lot so far. The story sucks you in to a point that you can’t wait to see what will happen next that something like how good the graphics are doesn’t even matter anymore.

I would very much like to say that you can start any atelier game in the series without getting lost since each one has their own story, but when their are moments when other characters from the previous games pop in to say hi. It kind of makes you want to start from the very beginning of the series. So, you can fully appreciate what’s really happening when they appear, but that’s entirely up to you.

I’m really enjoying game and I hope you do too if your into adventure or rpgs with anime moments, but if your not that okay. I would definitely recommend this to beginner gamers because the controls are so easy to understand. But, if you prefer to watch the gameplay unfold then I’ll leave the a link to my gameplay at the bottom to watch to your heart’s content.

My Deepest Secret

goodreads.comHello!

I’m going to be talking about a new comic I found recently that’s called, “My Deepest Secret” or more like my Yandere Boyfriend by Hanza Art. Now, even though, the deep secret in the relationship between Emma and her boyfriend, Elios is revealed rather quickly; doesn’t mean their aren’t many other secrets to come to wrap our brains around.

For example, how did Elios and Emma know each other in the past? Why doesn’t Emma remember him? Was their meeting a pure coincidence or planned? Who is Lee? What’s Elios’s back story? Do we have a love triangle on our hands?

The questions keep coming with no answer from the creator’s story but that’s because the comic is really new, so its ongoing. Besides that the story takes you in really quickly with the story revealing Elios’s dark and cruel habits. It seems that he’ll hide this fact from Emma and go to great lengths to take out her enemies without her knowledge. However, by how things are going, she’s going to start putting two and two together at some point. I mean, how many times can your recent enemy die so suddenly before you start to take a hint?!

Lee

Now when it comes to Emma, I think she just wants to live as normal and peaceful life as much, as possible. The reason being the story has hinted that she went through a terrible childhood and doesn’t want any kind of repeat of it in her adult life. Sadly, for her through she seems to be a magnet for trouble when it comes to the male species. For Emma’s sake, I’m trying to hope that the worst case scenario didn’t happen to this poor girl when she was a kid, but we can only wait and see what the next chapter brings.

I really like this story so far and its dark theme. It kind of makes me wonder if it’ll get darker than this or will the story finally give you the answers you want or just give you more questions? Guess all we can do is patiently wait and see what Hanza Art brings to the table.

A Silent Voice

Shout! Factory.comWe’re going to be diving into an animated movie called, “A Silent Voice” or “The Shape of Voice” whichever title you prefer.  It was produced by Kyoto Animation, directed by Naoko Yamada and written by Reiko Yoshida. With that said I would like to thank everyone in involved in the making of this awesome movie.

Now this movie mostly revolves around two main characters who are Shoya and Shoko. Shoko transferred over to Shoko’s elementary school where everyone learned that she was deaf and had to wear hearing aides in order to hear at least a little bit. But, still preferred to communicate with everyone through her notebook. For some reason, Shoya and her friends start bullying her and anyone trying to befriend her. Until one day, Shoko’s mom makes an complaint to the school which in turn makes Shoya’s friends turn on him in order to save themselves from punishment.

With the bullying and harassment exposed Shoya’s mom was forced to pay back all the money to Shoko’s family in compensation to him breaking or taking her hearing aides. Shoya learned three life lessons during this time:

Karma is a bitch

During tough or dire situations, you find out who your real friends are

That all of your actions come with rewards and consequences

AminoApps.comIn this his case very harsh consequences because not only did his family have to give up the money to Shoko’s family, but he also lost all his friends and everything he did to her was being done to him. This stuck with him even after Shoko suddenly transferred out to another school. Eventually, he did get to transfer to another school too, but the mental and emotional damage was already done by then because in his new school he didn’t have any friends there either, he had trouble looking at people in the eye and his depression seemed to be so bad that his mind couldn’t even bother to remember people faces. The people not important to him in his life had huge Xs over their faces showing that he didn’t really care for their existence so the only people that initially didn’t have an X over their was face were pretty much family members.

Fate seems to intervene once more with Shoko and Shoya reuniting in a sign language class. Shoya wants to redeem himself for his past mistakes concerning her, so he decides to befriend her.Then, the beautiful drama journey between these two is born. This is a total tear jerker of a movie and if you watch this movie and you don’t shed a tear then I’m pretty sure you don’t have a soul.

Tumblr.comIn this movie, new friendships are born, old ones are renewed, jealousy and love are sprung and speaking of jealousy I think Naoka had a crush on Shoya because of the fact that she blames Shoko for how their friendship ended in elementary school and now how Shoko and Shoya seem to be so close now. So, she ends up becoming a bitter bitch in trying to sabotage their new found friendship anyway she can. What I think Naoko never ever understood from that childhood experience was that their little group of friends weren’t really friends to begin with because even if Shoko wasn’t in the picture; some other time in the future something else was going to break them apart. Also, she had plenty of time after the incident to rekindle her friendship with Shoya but the fact that she never bothered because she was afraid of becoming an social outcast herself spoke volumes to me.

Anyway, I really loved this movie it moved my heart to tears. Their are a lot of life lessons to be learned in it, makes you appreciate life as a whole and how it shows you that things can always get better with time plus the movie itself was overall beautiful. I recommend anime and non-anime watchers to definitely watch, but if you don’t feel like crying your eyes out while watching it, I will understand.

Kingdom Hearts 3

Hello, everyone! Its been awhile since my last post but I’m back once again.

Today I’m going to be talking about the new game that came out recently and that is Kingdom Hearts 3 which was published and developed by Square Enix. This is the twelfth installment in the game series and sequel to Kingdom Hearts 2. Also, this recent game could be the very last in the series, but who knows. The story revolves around our good friends Sora, Donald and Goofy who have to go on a journey to find his own way of finding his power of awakening in order to get the rest of his powers back.

VidaExtra.comXehanort almost took over Sora completely in a previous game, but failed. Sadly, Sora lost most of his powers in the process and now has to find a way to get them back before Xehanort can carry out his evil plan. With that in mind, Sora must once again travel across worlds and find his own way of getting his powers back.

In a good portion of the game, Sora’s fighting style is very weak looking and for obvious reasons. This change is not only obvious to the person playing the game, but to the characters in the story, as well. The other details that I’ve noticed in the game are the new moves and functions created within the game. There are ALOT of new moves when fighting in this game, so many that if it wasn’t for the fact that most can be activated with the triangle button (for PS4) I probably would have forgotten how to use them soon after the tutorial was finished. Make no mistake, that some of them are cool and fun to look at while others look just plain unnecessary as if they were trying to get that ultimate Disneyland feel into the game.

Gfycat.comIf that is what the game developers were going for then they have succeeded. They were lots of times in mid gameplay that I felt like I teleported in a Disneyland attraction ride. Also, it seems that they have changed certain features that were present in the previous Kingdom Hearts games. For example, they’ve changed the whole layout and controls of the Gummi ship. It took me a while to figure out the ship’s new controls, but got a quick handle of them. The reason I think that they changed it up so much is to fit the new layout when using the Gummi ship. Back in the previous games, they didn’t allow the Gummi ship to move around all that much and gave it only one set destination until you found multiple worlds to go to while blasting anything or anyone that got in your way.

Now, its more open world where you can either fly around and take out some heartless ships or go to wherever world you choose. Other than going to Hercules world; the story starts wherever you want it to. Thinking about the game overall, I would recommend this game for people who are into the series or beginner RPG players.

ArchyWorldys.comWhy I say beginner RPG players for this game, you ask? Well, I’ll tell you!

I’ve played the Kingdom Hearts 3 game in standard mode thinking that I’ll have a tough time against higher level monsters and bosses like I did in the previous games. That was not the case for the latest game, if you want a real challenge in the game then I suggest going with the proud option because even though the settings say easy, standard or proud. It was really saying do you want super easy, easy or normal because I remember playing normal on the previous games and I was struggling even in the beginning, but in Kingdom Hearst 3 not so much. It was more like a come and enjoy the ride type of feel as I was playing.

Not that there is anything wrong with going on with an easy setting and enjoying the story and their awesome graphics. I truly love the story in this series and I truly hope this isn’t going to be the last one that they make, but who knows what happens in the future. This game has its ups and downs, but like with every Kingdom Hearts game I still enjoy it so much and I hope you will, too.

KINGDOM HEARTS 3 GAMEPLAY:

 

 

Final Fantasy XV: Episode Ardyn

Episode Ardyn CoverWelcome back, everyone. Today I’m going to be talking about the long-awaited, ‘Episode Ardyn’ dlc for the Final Fantasy 15 game. This dlc is the final character dlc for the game and it was released on March of 2019. This dlc was supposed to come out back in 2018, but the game developers decided to postpone its release for various for several reasons.

Obviously, this dlc revolves around Ardyn who we meet in the main game of Final Fantasy XV. This episode finally reveals to the long-awaited story of Ardyn’s past and how Ardyn becomes the frightening and cruel demon god that we all love and hate in the main game. I’m not going to spoil what happens in the dlc. If you want to know what happens then I suggest that you either play it or watch it.

If you would like to see what happens in Ardyn’s episode then click on the link down below.

UpWalkthroughPlaying this dlc was really easy whether you choose easy or normal difficulty. I think the reason behind it is because of Ardyn’s character. In the first battle in the game, he was really weak for obvious reasons but after that your pretty much invincible in combat. It makes a lot of sense when you think about it considering that your playing a demon god who can’t die no matter what you do to him.

With that being said, I can’t really say if having items available like potions, high potions, etc was really necessary only because it was really, really hard to die in the game. Also, Ardyn tends to drain his enemies of health while fighting if he happens to spot a weak point (like a vampire). If you used potions for anything it was just to make sure the enemy didn’t make that final blow when his HP hits zero.

I loved Ardyn’s back story a lot. I knew the moment I saw him; he was a super complex character and when the truth was revealed in the dlc I was not disappointed. After, I was done playing it I didn’t know if I should love him, hate him or pity him because this man gets the short end of the stick the entire time. Knowing his side of the story, could you really blame Ardyn for doing what he did?

That’s one of the big questions running through my mind and anyone else that’s played the game. As I’ve said before it’s almost impossible to die in this game so rpg players of any level can play this dlc with no problems. The in game graphics, storyline were on point and we meet some intriguing characters and you can really see how everything is connected to one another to the main game especially if you’ve already played the previous episodes already. Can’t wait to see what they bring to the table next. Until then, I’ll be patiently waiting and whether you decide to play it or watch it I hope you enjoy it was much as I have.

FINAL FANTASY 15: EPISODE ARDYN GAMEPLAY

 

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime

nimecode.comAh, my first post for the new year, even though it’s almost February……oh well. Sorry that’s its taken me so long to make another post but here it is!

This anime show is called,” That time I got reincarnated as a Slime”, by Fuse. Other than the title; a quick clip of the show on YouTube I found at random had me searching quickly for the full episodes of the anime. The story begins with a normal human man named, Satoru, who is also 37-year-old virgin but loves his normal everyday life. That all changes one day when one get together turns deadly by him getting stabbed and dying.

As he dies a voice which is later called,’ The Great Sage’, talks to him and offers him a new life and asks what he would like. Satoru thinks that he’s going delusional in his final moments so he starts requesting the first things that come to mind without knowing the consequences. Next thing he knows, he’s waking up in a dark cave in a slime’s body and his epic adventure begins.

Twitter.com
Satoru’s Human Death

You can pretty much guess why the Great Sage chose that body for him. Not only was he reincarnated into another world, but it had to find a body that suited all of his requests that he made while dying. He didn’t want to feel pain, hot or cold, have predator instincts (even though that’s not what he meant at the time), etc. So, if you think about it becoming a slime makes a lot of sense. Even though he complains a lot at first about his body, he gets used to it pretty fast.

Then he meets the Storm Dragon Veldora who explains that he’s been sealed in the cave for hundreds of years and if he still sealed for another hundred years or two he will die. What he did to get imprisoned is kind of bad but the way he tells it is funny as hell. Also, Veldora turns out to be a very nice dragon probably because he’s super lonely for being stuck in that cave for so long. Satoru feels bad for him so he makes him a deal, he’ll go out into the world to find a way to unseal him in exchange for being his friend. Veldora agrees and Satoru ends up using one of his skills to eat the dragon and the cage, so Veldora can tag along.

So in short Satoru’s main quest is to release Veldora from his prison before he dies. But, he gets into a lot of funny and serious situations along the way that makes you cry in laughter. Next thing you know Satoru ends up becoming one of the biggest badasses in that world without realizing it. But, there is one thing that still remains a mystery that he’s kind of shrugged off in the show…..who is the Great Sage? Why was he reincarnated into that world in the first place?

According to the anime, people come from different worlds to visit his world sometimes but they are summoned not reincarnated. No only is Satoru’s situation unique and rare but powerful, too. It takes about thirty mages to summon one person to his world, but from what I’ve seen in the show only one big powerful person or entity was strong enough to pull him into that world and make him a new body to boot. So, it begs the questions of why this person or being did that in the first place.

There are a lot of questions to be answered in this anime and if you want to find out the answers I suggest you watch it or read it for yourself. Their are a lot of action, hilarious moments and hot people in this show, so I’m sure you’ll find something that will catch your eye. Hope you enjoy this awesome anime like I did.

The Ghost’s Wife

Twitter.comAlright everyone I have another comic/manga for you today. This one is called,” The Ghost Wife” by Saejung. Personally, I think it should be re-titled to, “The Ghost’s Wife” because it makes more sense, but that’s just me.

This revolves around a girl named Liz Kim who is an ordinary high school girl enjoying her everyday life (You know the usual) until she looks out the window one night to see a strange boy eating cats near her house. The boy notices her and stealthily makes his way inside her room. At this point you can tell he isn’t human, but when Liz comes face to face with him; he only says two things to her before she passes out.

Should I eat you or make you my wife?

Since then the ghost has been constantly following her around; protecting her from other evil spirits in the area. As the story progresses, you realize how powerful he really is. He can be seen or become invisible to anyone he chooses except Liz and her brother, he can go through other spirits like tissue paper and he can hypnotize anyone into believing whatever it is he wants you to believe. So, he was an unusually powerful.

He made himself so comfortable invading her personal life on a daily basis that everyone around her has started calling him, Damon. As if it was the most normal thing in the world, if that wasn’t enough problems for this poor girl to handle another powerful ghost appears and claims that other stronger ghosts are going to be coming after her, too. Now her current ghost problem becomes her protector instead.

 

The only thing that I don’t get is how Liz went from not being able to see any spirits for so long to seeing all of them all of a sudden. I can’t blame Damon for all of it because it seems that Damon has been trying to get her attention for years and was severely surprised when she was finally able to even though he barely shows his emotions most of the time. So, what sparked the supernatural foresight? This series is still ongoing, so maybe they’ll reveal that fact later on in the story.

I was really hesitate to get into this story because it was ongoing and the art style didn’t really catch my eye at first, but once I got into the story I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next. My only question now is how is their new-found relationship is going to work? He’s still a ghost, after all? Is he planning on killing her in the end so that they can be together forever? If you want to see the answer to these questions then your going to have to read yourself. Enjoy yourselves, everyone.

Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice

 

GiantBomb.com
                                     Left to Right: Phoenix, Maya, Apollo and Nahyuta

Hi everyone, its been a while hasn’t it?

For today, I’m going to be talking about another game in the popular Ace Attorney series which is called,” Spirit of Justice”. I think I have played almost every game in this series, so you could say I’m a bit of a fan. 

Every Ace Attorney game that’s ever come out has been an adventure, but this one kind of puts the cherry on the cake. The reason being is that everything that you’ve known about Ace Attorney and all the main characters in all the games come together in a strange twist of fate. When I saw so many different characters in this game my fan girl mode activated. 

thefuturequeen.tumblr.com

Getting into the story a bit, it starts out with Phoenix Wright going to the country of Khura’in to visit Maya since she’s about to graduate from her two long years spirit channeling training. Of course, things don’t go as planned and he ends up in court where attorneys aren’t well liked and to make things worse they depend on the prosecutors and Rayfa’s ‘Dance of Devotion’ séance to determine if someone is guilty or not.

I don’t know if they cranked up the difficulty for this game or if the new controls involved in it had something to do with it, but this one was way harder than the previous ones. They were plenty of times I would be staring at the screen in frustration trying to figure out the answer.

The graphics in this game got a lot better in this one and I was surprised that they through in some anime scenes in there, too. Least to say that they put their all into this game and I loved it. The graphics, the new characters, the anime scenes and also the ever funny parts where the criminal finally goes crazy from getting caught. If you like visual novel or adventure games then I would give this a try and see how you like it.

Let’s Play

senscritique.comHello again, everyone!

Today I’ll be talking about another comic from Webtoon called, ” Let’s Play,” by Mongie. The main character ends up being a cute but nerdy girl named, Sam who has always dreamed of being a game developer. She worked her ass off until she was finally able to make her first game and shared it on a game developer site so others could play it and give her some feedback on how she did.

Things were going well until a famous gamer youtuber named, Marshall Law, played her game one day and gave it an awful review. Since, then things started going downhill for the poor girl. Her confidence along with her game developer reputation and dreams were dashed by one single internet icon. If things couldn’t get any worse, her new neighbor ends up being Marshall himself.

Pinterest.comThis story is really entertaining and I love the little emotion moments where the creator makes a person’s emotion look like shadow people. Also, I love the characters in this story and my favorite characters would have to Sam and Link and not just because I want them to end up together really badly. Sam is such a sweet girl and the embodiment of a gamer girl who needs to break of her shell. Link is her exact opposite, he’s not into games as much as she is, but he cares a lot about her and his really protective moments towards her are the cutest.

Besides, her love life starting to bloom; she hasn’t given up on her dreams, even though, she was kicked to the curb and thrown away by the internet. Also, I want to put out there that it turns out that Marshall isn’t an asshole or anything. He’s just a popular gamer that didn’t realize how much power he has over the fate of people like Sam.

s7.instago.pwThe first season of this comic is complete and I patiently await for the second season or any updates from the creator about when we should expect the next episode, so I can see if Sam and Link finally end up together and everyone else gets over their issues and problems because the ending to season one is a very dramatic cliffhanger that makes you hungry for more. If your into slice of life or romance type of reads then this would be something I recommend that you read to pass the time. But, if you rather wait for it to be complete then I understand and give you props for your patience for waiting that long for that glorious moment to arrive. Hope you enjoy the story!
