Big Hero 6 Review
Disney does a great job of conditioning movie viewers into thinking: “I HAVE to see this film!” We join this massive hype train, swearing allegiance to the fandom before ever seeing the actual movie, and I full heartedly admit this happened with me and Big Hero 6. However, Big Hero 6 didn’t garnish massive hype

GamerGate: Where It All Went Wrong.
What is GamerGate? Lately this hastag, and group, has exploded all over social media and the internet- it is known as GamerGate. Cute, somebody knows history and wants to make a play on the Water Gate scandal. This should give you a pretty good understanding of what GamerGate FIRST started as. Between all the social
Outgrowing Sailor Moon…Kinda.
If you’re into anime, or know somebody who is, pretty sure you know that Sailor Moon got a fresh reboot entitled: Sailor Moon Crystal.

Another Mattel Horror Story

Comic Con Survival Guide: Off Site Exhibits.
SDCC Survival Guide: Get out of the Convention Center. One of the best, and worst things, about Comic Con is that it’s just super massive and barely contains itself in the convention center. Between panels, shopping on the exhibit floor, and wandering lost in the hallways; at some point convention goers are going to

Cartoon Network vs Parent’s TV Council: Not All Cartoons are Created Equal.
I came across this interesting read, while cruising Crunchyroll: http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/tv-movies/parents-television-council-sink-adult-swim-article-1.1605975 Long story short, the PTV (Parent’s Television Council) is gunning for Cartoon Network. No surprise there, considering PTV is about (and I say this as nicely as I can) limiting the graphic media that young ones should be viewing, and Cartoon Network is

Naruto: Kakashi, Shadow of ANBU Arc.
I think it’s a long standing, and agonizing, joke among the anime community that the Naruto anime is king of filler arcs- even toppling Dragon Ball. To break the news yet again, the Naruto anime will be hitting another filler arc before continuing onto the original manga/source material. Good news though (try to calm all

I’m going to flood the internet with one more Thor: A Dark World movie review.

Without disclosing, exactly how old of a geezer I am (which really isn’t old, I just like to say I am) I like to say I have watched many of arcs of anime, and started and completed manga series (as they released!) that bode an easy 30 volume count….To say the least, anime and manga

I’ll admit it, I’m a total Pacific Rim fangirl. I literally handed my money to Del Toro on a golden platter; while at Comic Con I snatched up Pacific Rim swag by the handful. I saw the movie two times (once in IMAX 3D, and it was pretty freaking amazing)- and I’m honestly debating about
