Sonic Runs to Box Office Success

Sonic the Hedgehog is a Good Movie

When I heard that Paramount was making a Sonic the Hedgehog movie, I thought it was a terrible idea. Then I saw what they made Sonic look like, I lost it like the rest of the Internet. Thankfully, the studio made the right call, delayed the movie to fix their mistake, and released it this week. Now, what once seemed destined to be a failure is the highest grossing film based on a video game in history.

One Piece Chapter 971 Cover Page

Being Boiled Alive is a Gruesome Death

At twelve chapters and still going, this flashback to the life of Oden Kozuki may be one of the longest in One Piece history. However, it would seem that Oda’s getting ready to end this story and bring us back to the present day. In the manga’s defense, though, Oden’s set to go out in a very heroic manner. All while being boiled alive, no less.

School Festival Title Card

I Wish We Had School Festivals

Ahh, the cultural festival, a staple of the Japanese educational system. It also happens to be among the things that I wish we did in the US. Every year, schools in Japan have open day festivals where people come to play games, eat, and have fun. And even though its a school dedicated to training heroes, U.A. High is no exception to this common trope of anime. That’s right: the next arc of My Hero Academia is a school festival!

I’m Now A Fanfic Editor

After reading fanfics for a while, I’ve realized that nothing grinds my gears more than seeing fan stories be hindered by poor grammar and spelling. Then when I found this one that combined the premise behind Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 with Star vs. the Forces of Evil, something in me made me compelled to step in and do something to help with its grammar and spelling problems.

Marco’s A Harem Anime Protagonist

A running gag throughout the Star fandom is the fact that Marco winds up having a bunch of different girls attracted to him. Thus, he’s the subject to heavy shipping in the fandom. Starco, Jarco, Janco, Markapoo, Kellco, Higgsco! The guy’s like a harem anime protagonist. So, in this next fan-fic, we run with that idea and see how far it can go.

My Hero Interlude Ends With This Episode

Well, I think this may be my least favorite episode of the entire season of My Hero Academia. When we left off, Bakugo, Shoto, Camie, and Inasa had to rein in a bunch of problem elementary school students. When words failed to reach them, they resort to humanity’s other, time-honored solution: violence. Or so it looks like: in truth, they’re just trying to reach those kids hearts.

Oh, and Midoriya and Aoyama end up bonding while Bakugo and Endeavor own up to their short-comings.

Super Bowl Ad Mashup

May the Best Ads Win!

Another Super Bowl’s come and gone, and while I’m happy to see the Kansas City Chiefs win, I’m going to be honest. I never watch the Super Bowl for the game unless its my home team: it’s all about the ads. This year saw some really great ones, and some not so great ones (the nerve of Trump and Bloomberg). So, without further ado, here are my picks for favorite ads for Super Bowl LIV.
