Hey guys, Samurai here, and I have some breaking news for you guys of some historic consequence. Masashi Kishimoto, creator of the long running series “Naruto”, announced today that his series will end in 5 weeks. Anime News Network reports that the final volume of the series will be released on November 10th.
The end of the “Naruto” manga will bring the end to one of the longest running and popular manga series around, having first appeared on the scene in Weekly Shonen Jump in 1999, and spinning off a wildly popular, multi-season anime, movies, video games, and toy franchise among many other things. Here in the US, “Naruto” has served as a gateway manga and anime series for many fans, and has, in some small circles, been referred to as this generations DragonBall Z.
Welp, it was bound to happen sooner or later! Hey guys, Samurai here! Yes, it’s been a while, hasn’t it? I’ll get into why it’s been so long since I actually wrote up a review…or much of anything for a while, but let’s start off with some good news, shall we? Anime News Network reports that Renton Thurston has just given birth to a bouncing baby today. Yes, I’m just as confused as you guys are as to how the heck Renton was able to have kids, what with the lacking of the appropriate equipment, but that’s what Anime News Network reports, so I guess it must be true. Congrats to the proud papa and–
[::phone rings::] Excuse me. [::answers::] Yes? Uh-huh. Oh…Ohhhhhhh…I got it now. Uh-huh. Yeah, that makes more sense. Okay. Yeah, thanks. Bye.
Ahem. Forgive me, everyone. It seems as though I was mistaken. That’s what happens, I guess, when you’re out of the writing loop for so long. I’ll correct myself and more after the break!
Greetings all, I’d be remiss in my duties if I did not share what I knew.
After a month of playing a tedious game the people of the internet (including myself) came together and was awarded the above screenshot. I’d like to first thank everyone that made that possible. Now let’s begin analysis. Frankly it’s absolutely nothing. The silhouette is clearly Yagami Taichi. The text is clear enough but the English translation they gave leaves out it was indeed Hikari telling Taichi to have a nice day. Other then that. We got nothing other then… WE get to play the game again! YAYYYY.
Samurai here guys! How’s it going? Well, Saturday was prodigiously interesting for me and two of my best friends. After a long week of work schedule changes, family illness, and just overall exhaustion, we decided that we all needed to … Continue reading →
Hey guys, Samurai here! About three years ago, I reviewed the wildly popular romantic comedy anime Toradora. If you recall, I gave this anime a very high grade, hailing it as being one of the greatest anime of our time. I also lamented the fact that there was no official North America release in the works, even though it was very popular in the fan community, and remains so to this day. Well, fast forward three years, and it looks as though someone finally listened, as Toradoranot only got a North America release on DVD and Blu-Ray, but it’s also been dubbed. Does the dub enhance or degrade the awesomeness that is Toradora? Let’s find out after the break. Continue reading →
