You know what’s funny? I’ve been in many fights and the one thing that I have over my opponents at times is the knowledge. You see if you hold off on your true nature and abilities then the fight can be in your favor. The assumption of your opponent being less than you expect is a big mistake. There should be a certain level of respect when facing every adversary, but for some they stay ignorant and underestimate the enemy. For ex-mercenary Dog Tags, they are a special breed, but this time we to see how two dog tags operate in battle. Episode 2 has finally released, so what shall we learn today?

I will admit that I am not to big of a fan when it comes to the cute anime. I can watch it and at times tolerate it, but my anime favorites go with Black Lagoon, Outlaw Star, Ghost in the Shell and pretty much any anime that has a badass tone to it. I’ve been in a dry spell lately on certain animes to watch within that same genre and now premiering is Gangsta written by Khoske back in 2010 as a manga. Now you can enjoy this in full motion, but does it live up to my expectations?

This has been stated in many places but I noticed it myself too, lately more and more anime & manga fans being overly obsessive with their taste and in thinking they “know better” than others. There are people who get made fun of or taunted for liking and enjoying a show that the internet collective thinks is bad. It’s like they think just because they like or dislike something then everyone else must too or they are wrong. It has gotten to the point where they’re immediately dismissed from any sort of forum or group just because they enjoy a particular show. What’s more concerning is that there are people who put on a facade and “stop” liking shows that they actually liked to maintain an image of being an anime or manga expert. On average it’s for liking a series that is considered mainstream or commonplace. The biggest examples tend to be the shonen trio (One Piece, Naruto, Bleach) or other popular series. It’s like once a series is well known, it becomes taboo to love.

I was but a young teen when I first read the Initial D series and was amazed how they took the world of drift racing and put it in manga form. They had some premiere details on each car and how they performed which would make any gear head or car enthusiast fall in love. Things became better when the premiere of the Initial D anime series was released and as always seeing the pages come to live was an adrenaline rush.

When one loses their humanity it is hard to return to the life you once lived. Kaneki was trying his hardest to be both a ghoul as well as a human, but he was caught in a war long before he became a half breed. In that you’re torn between the two worlds and at times forced to make a decision. In Kaneki’s case, it was a tortured method to bring out the full monster within, but will either side regret making that happen? Welcome back to season 2 of Tokyo Ghoul and this is our first impression.

Re-Boots Can be good if done right.

Good Day Fellow Readers,

KimChee X here again to bring you some insights and knowledge, well at least some personal opinions on ……Re-Boots.

Re-boots can be wonderful things if done correctly, but they can be complete disasters. Re-boots and remakes have been happening for quite some time, when the movie industry or the anime/manga seem to be in a standstill, re-boots anrrk_kb_ch003_-_018d remakes will happen. The only problem with re-boots is that if it is done wrong it can ruin the series for the new generation as well as the old.

Let’s take a step back and review to the term re-boot. We used this term to signify that the series or movie needed a fresh perspective to be brought back into our mind again. Especially if the series was a hit from the beginning and the series has ended for quite some time. Re-boot and remakes have been going on for quite some time and it has had mixed reactions. From Astro Boy and Speed Racer to the most recent anime reboot, Sailor Moon and manga Rurouni Kenshin Kinema Ban.

OVA_9Normally re-boots always feels like a means to make more money on the popularity of a series that as ended. But on the rare occasions the reboot does take the series to the next level which why a re-boot is never a bad thing. Recently Sailor Moon has come out, and even though I was not a huge fan of the original, I feel like they have kept the core essence of the series while added something new to the series. This also goes for Hellsing Ultimate, this series kept the core premise for the series but made it extremely graphic than the original anime series.

A good reboot doesn’t try to change the core essence but adds to the universe it belonged to. On the flip side, if the re-boot is just the same story with better animation it is not going to do so well since the original has done do, on the same side trying to re-imagine a truly great series is going to have some backlash as the original was great to begin with and trying to change the world we already know is like telling someone that good is bad and bad is good. You cannot switch these two ideas.

So don’t automatically assume a re-boot will be bad and don’t assume a bad original being re-booted will be bad. Just give everything a chance and decide for yourself.

Thanks,

KimChee X over and out.hellsing_ultimate_4_by_pedronex-d73ndsx
