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.

The new season is upon us, despite what the weather tries to say, and I don’t just mean spring outside but the newest anime season has begun as well. Though dubbed “the season of sequels” (with new seasons of several series including Baby Steps, Ace of Diamond, Highschool DXD, Fairy tail and Nisekoi) this season does have a few nice additions to the lineup. Personally I’m looking forward to a couple of series that I have been/still read regularly.

There will be always something or someone that will try to come between you and the person you love. That is in many forms and in many stories, but evil will never prevail if your love to true. This is one of those sad flashback episodes that give you a deeper understand on what went on with the Moon and Earth kingdoms, as well why the action of reincarnation. Please grab some tissues to wipe the tears for this review.

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

The battle rages on as an act of bravery triggers the memories of Usagi and her true destiny as a sailor scout. What will happen when the memories reveal their horrific end that lead them to this resurrection on Earth? All I know is that things have become hectic rather quickly vs. the early 90’s version, but here we go.
