Valkyria Chronicles comes to PC

Finally after 6 years of waiting the PC master race have been blessed by the old PS3 exclusive. It is available for Pre-order on steam for $17.99 with all DLC included.
Depending on how this does will probably have an affect on the others also coming to PC and hopefully it will give a spark to the series which hasn't had a new installment for a few years.

I have Valkyria Chronicles on PS3 and I highly recommend you getting it especially now that it should found in the sales bin. It was a gem that was missed by many.
If you can't get the game then the anime might be for you. It follows the games plot and isn't bad at all unlike the usual game tie ins.

Food Wars anime?


A recent tweet said that the loved cooking manga would be getting a new anime series in 2015. The tweet was soon deleted and of course Shonen Jump doesn't comment on rumors. So for now we can't be sure if it is coming or not but I think the series is quite popular and has a big fan base so it wouldn't exactly be surprising if an anime was in the works.

Food Wars is the story of Soma Yukihira who gets sent to a culinary school that boasts a 10% graduation rate and his adventures, challenges in said school.

Top 10 anime openings

Warning!

Who doesn't love a good list?
This is my list and our opinions will differ. Heck, I think even my opinion will be different next week. It actually is just what I am in the mood for that decides these rankings. Even now just a few minutes after deciding the list I am having second thoughts about excluding a few songs.
Now why wasn't [insert opening] in there? That is a good question and I probably really like [insert opening] but wasn't feeling at the moment.

So without further ado let us get to the list! I won't have long explanations on reasons and whatnot, I believe I have chosen good songs and if you just listen to them you can probably understand my feelings.

10. Mirai Nikki - Kuuso Mesorogiwi.
I actually am not that big of a fan of the show but I can't deny the opening is great.



9. Black Lagoon - Red Fraction.
It is just as badass as the show itself.


8. Soul Eater - Resonance.
Not much to say about this one, it is uplifting and gets you ready to see some action. All one really needs from a good opening, right?



7. A certain scientific railgun - Only my Railgun.
It gets me pumped up for the episode everytime and not once did I think about skipping the opening.



6. Durarara - Uragire No yuuyake.
I love this song for various reasons, first it is really a good song, second it isn't your typical anime pop song opening, After awhile alot of openings start blending together but this one does not.



5 .Neon Genesis Evangelion.
Now, no matter what you think about the series I don't think anyone can deny it is one of the most recognizable openings ever in anime and for good reason, it is simply beautiful.


4. Elfen Lied - Lilium.
If we are talking about beautiful openings we can't really leave this one out.


3.  Attack on Titan - Guren No Yumiya
I can't think of a person who did not love this opening (maybe some hipsters who thought it was overplayed) I succeeded to make some of my friends who aren't usually into anime to see this series only because I showed them this opening.



2. Angel Beats - My soul, Your Beats.
I didn't like this at first, but slowly I found myself listening to it before the episode and by the end I had fallen in love with it.



1. Ghost in the Shell - Inner universe.
This isn't for everyone and it probably isn't a good idea to put it first but that's what I feel. This is a masterpiece. It really clicks with me and that's all the reason I need to put it at first.

FREE! Review

A short  review of the original series that aired. This was done before the eternal summer.
Me and my friends started watching FREE Iwatobi Swim club as an inside joke and  after we were done I started wondering if it actually was any good.
The following video is pretty much the whole thought process.

The video review



This video is of course just a joke. No need to get serious about it.

Now how about some nice pictures of half naked men?





Butterfly...cause why not?

Naruto the Last Movie - new sketches

New sketches released by Jump magazine. Designs by Masashi Kishimoto, the creator of Naruto.

There is a small description for few of the character.
“Sakura, who has grown up to have a mature expression! …Sakura’s gently smiling expression makes quite the impression. Her body’s form is also somewhat feminine."
 “Shikamaru with a tranquil face!… Shikamaru does not appear to have much change to him, but the look on his face looks quite manly!?”
 “Sai has changes to his clothes, too!? …Sai’s bangs have gotten a bit longer, and his face has a cooler expression. The sleeves on his shirt have gotten a bit longer.”

Hatsune success continues

Hatsune Miku just had her new concert in NYC and once again the whole event has been a big success.
 The biggest complaint maybe has been the choice to use a English song as the "main" song.

Miku even appeared on Letterman before her event for some plugging. It was truly a television first to have a software as the musical guest.
The official Hatsune Miku youtube channel has uploaded a short clip from the NYC show. You can see a bit of Sharing the World and the World is mine.


Now the question is when can we finally get Hatsune Miku to Europe.

More mega evolutions revealed for Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

My personal favorite generation of Pokemon is getting a reboot with Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire so you can't imagine how excited I am for all news relating to this.

The official Pokemon website revealed some more mega evolutions we can look forward to in the game.

Not only does good old Onix have its Steelix evolution but a new mega evolution. He should get a boost to defense and the Sand Force ability.

Mega evolving Glalie gets him increased ATK and SPATK and he gets the Refrigerate ability.

Moe VS GAR

The age old question! Which is better Moe or GAR?

Now I think everyone who like anime/manga knows what moe is by this point but not that many know what GAR is.
Gar like moe is a character archetype but unlike moe it has nothing to do with cuteness. It is all about being overly manly and badass.


The most obvious example of Gar is Tengen Toppa Guren Lagann super over the top manly action. But almost any show with a major badass could be considered GAR.


So which is better Moe or Gar? This maybe a unsatisfying answer but I all depends on what you like. If you like K-on or generally cute girls doing cute things is all you want in your anime then moe is for you. If you like shirtless men going into battle being super badass then maybe GAR is your thing.

Of course the two can co-exist.
