When anime fans hear someone wants to make a live-action adaptation of something, they tend to groan. The Dragonball film must not be named, for sure, but the worst offender in recent years has been Netflix. Death Note, Fullmetal Alchemist, Cowboy Bebop, all beloved anime. All of them Netflix butchered and roused the ire of fans. Then, word got out that they were making a live-action version of One Piece, and fans went ballistic.

The kind of miracle that only Luffy and the Straw Hat Pirates could pull off: the live-action One Piece…was good.

You know, when I first saw Steve Rogers hand the Falcon the shield and wanted him to be his successor, I didn’t think much of it. I thought that Sam or Bucky were the best choices to be Captain America. I didn’t even give the fact that Sam’s African-American a second thought. However, the events of the last few years have reminded America that we are still struggling to deal with our racist past. And it’s something we’ll likely keep struggling with for a long time. However, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier reminded us of something important in its penultimate chapter. That if keep feeling sorry about our past, we’ll never fix anything. And this week, the Falcon and Winter Soldier learn to stop being sorry for themselves.
