Top 5 Naruto Characters

Top 5 Naruto Characters

Naruto started out as a manga series created by Masashi Kishimoto, and it was adapted into an anime series in 2002. Even though the manga series wrapped up in 2014, the anime adaptation is still ongoing. Masashi Kishimoto did an incredible job of “world building” in the series, which includes creating many compelling characters. It […]

Naruto Shippuden The Movie: The Lost Tower

Naruto Shippuden The Movie: The Lost Tower

If there’s one thing that I enjoy about really successful anime series is their one-off movies that have absolutely nothing to do with the canon episodes. Their creators always have an interesting way of getting their characters into sordid adventures.

Saved By The Anime

Saved By The Anime

Up until this month, I had been living without using Netflix to fill the void of on demand entertainment. What made me change my mind on using the service was that so many Anime license companies like Viz and Funimation have decided to stream the bulk of their shows to Netflix subscribers…so now I have […]

Viz Media iPad App – Review

Viz Media iPad App – Review

I’ve read manga for what seems like 20 years now. I’ve read it in both English and Japanese and for some reason, I’ve enjoyed reading manga much more than reading comic books here in America. This may be because I’m a stark raving mad weeaboo when it comes to Japanese culture, but for me it’s […]

Morning Cup o’ Music

I’m a sucker for the Asian Kung-Fu Generation, I’ve seriously got all of their songs…and I would probably pay upwards of $200 for concert tickets if they ever got the chance to play here in Utah (fat chance I know), but I can always dream. With that love of AKFG, come a healthy love for […]

Morning Cup o’ Music

Ok so I’m kinda stuck in the past when it comes to J-Rock and J-Pop, one of the more modern groups that I’ve had the pleasure of listening to in the past couple of years would have to be Asian Kung-Fu Generation. If the song is familiar, it’s another one of the amazing songs that […]
