Re:Zero: Reasons Why We Need A Second Season

This summer we were blessed with so many interesting anime. One, in particular, that caught my eye, and was one of the most interesting I’ve seen in a while, goes by the name of “Re: Zero: Starting Life in Another World”. Now, I first encountered this show by just scrolling down my timeline on Facebook and seeing a gif  on Crunchyroll’s page. I got so hyped because the fight scene was dope and kind of reminded me of Black Lagoon. So I went and looked up the show, saw pictures, and even a preview. It didn’t look anything like the gif, but I still wanted to watch this anime because it sounded very interesting. After asking one of my friends about it and continuing to contemplate it, I gave it a shot. Check out the trailer below:

Now I thoroughly enjoyed this anime; Re:zero has everything from fight scenes, to drama to love and even some very tripped out what-just-happened moments. It  has yet to be officially announced that there is a season 2, but many fans including myself, are wondering what is next, and why are there so many unanswered questions. For instance there are so many characters who have untold stories or mysteries behind their methods, leaving us wonder what could they be hiding. The season finale had a cliffhanger edge to it as if there should’ve been more – but, I mean, with 25 episodes how much more can you put in one season? So I want to give my reasons why I think  we need a season 2.

RiceBall!!!

I am UBER excited (not to be confused with the car/taxi) for Pokemon’s 20 Year Celebration!!! So, I must admit that I have not finished the most recent games because responsibilities as an adult continue to interfere with my daily life.  But, I have been a true Pokemon fan and trainer since the 1996 release of Red & Blue versions, and the game changing release of Pokemon Yellow. *eyes tearing up* They truly were marvelous games. And part of the foundation of my awesome childhood. The games accompanied by the original Pokemon anime, Pokemon theme song, and PokeRap. It was a great time to be a kid.  I have such strong memories of many Pokemon masters, trainers…they’re dear to many fans’ hearts even until this day. Nintendo knows that majority of its success with Pokemon comes from its large nostalgic factor. So, lets take a quick minute, to celebrate and reminisce together. Karaoke style. Sing it with me RiceBall!!!

5 Reasons To Watch One Punch Man

2015 was a great year for new and interesting anime.  However, one anime took the crown. That anime is, One Punch Man (OPM)! When it first was released, social media was having a field day. It almost seemed as though OPM broke the anime internet. But, why? What is it about this anime that is making people across the world go crazy? It seems as though OPM showed up over night. All I kept seeing was random clips of amazing GIFs and fight scenes, and one bald headed guy with a weirdly animated face in a yellow jump suit and red gloves.  Upon furthering my research (aka talking to my nerd friends), all I kept hearing was that, “He’s a hero but for fun…and he is crazy strong!” What?? I tried to reserve my judgement until I watched the anime.  It seemed like there was a lot of over-hype about it. Is this anime really that good?  What was it that set it apart from the rest to make it the most talked about and entertaining anime of the 2015 year?  After finally watching the anime in full,  I understand. If you haven’t already watched it yet. Here are: 5 reasons to watch One Punch Man. Continue reading “5 Reasons To Watch One Punch Man”
