Happy New Year + goals & recommendations

Happy New Year everyone…well it is technically the second day of the new year so I am a little late in greetings. With this new year, I have the goal of finally finishing the light novel I am working on. The short stories are about done and I will have someone on Amazon do the editing, so everything should be good…I say this, but I have one little (major) problem: I lack an illustrator. I am not sure if I mentioned this, but my original illustrator for the black and white images quit on me (real life demands), so I have to post a new job to get a new illustrator. Someone told me that Deviant is basically dead, so if you guys have any idea where I can post the job please let me know in the comments.

I am also making a few Manga recommendations for the new year:

Himegimi to Sanbiki no Kemono by: MIYUKI Mitsubachi

Mirai Movie Review

Mirai 2018 

(Image from MyAnimeList)

I finally got to watch Mirai on Saturday, December 8, 2018. I was excited to watch it, but I have to admit that I felt annoyed at some parts. I have a little brother, so I can understand how the main character felt when his little sister arrived and he even made the same promise of not getting angry at her like I did when my brother came around, but as real life would have it, there a bound to be arguments and this movie was no different to the situation. The main character was crying most of the movie to the point you want to reach into the screen and slap him for being such a brat. I understand how he feels, but that doesn’t stop the urge of wanting to scold him. His tantrums were mostly from jealousy toward his sister and his selfishness. It looks like the point of the movie was to improve his attitude toward his sister and how to respect others by showing supernatural events like time travel to meet people that would help with his situation.  

I complain about his tantrums during the movie, but his tantrums do follow up with the good parts like how he traveled in a time before he was born to meet one of his relatives (won’t tell which one) that helped him realize that he should not give up in a difficult situation, especially when it is his first attempt at something new like riding a bicycle. I have to say that my favorite parts are when the supernatural events happen.

As for other characters, I really liked his father. The father is someone I wish I knew in my life, since he showed that he cares for his family, but real life situations like a job could make it difficult. Even with the difficulties, he proved that he can take care of his family and in the process encourage his wife and children.

As for the graphics, it was almost like watching a Miyazaki production with the vibrant colors and attention to detail. Computer animation definitely became noticeable when the main character was beginning to face his fears and understand what his role in the family was. Actually, the part with the most computer graphics reminded me a bit of a court room with a mix of the Twilight Zone.

The story itself was OK, but I might not have been in the right mind set to respect the storyline, since I was expecting more action for a movie related to time traveling, but this was most likely made to be a good slice of life and to respect what you have in life.

I would recommend this to people who want a good drama about changes in family life like the arrival of a new family member. Not one of my favorites, but worth a watch. As always please support the creators and the licensors of this work by giving it a watch when you can.

More Game Recommendations

Hey guys, just wanted to let you guys know that I added four other games to the game recommendations. I haven’t played them, but watched the gameplay online. Actually I played the original Spyro that the Reignited Trilogy is the remake of, so not sure if I should count that as I had played it. I actually want to play House Flipper, but I am waiting for payday (Christmas presents took priority last payday). We happy Few, I liked the storyline more than the gameplay, even though I feel that there are still secrets in the game. Overwatch…it might destroy my computer and I don’t have any other game systems to support it, but it was interesting to watch and I enjoy the short films of it, so maybe I can just wish to play it someday or hope that an anime will be made of it >_<.

Spyro Reignited Trilogy (Playstation 4)

House Flipper (PC)

We happy Few (Playstation 4)

Overwatch (Playstation 4)

Anyway, please check out these games and support the creators of the game when you have the chance.

Also, if you guys want more game suggestions then please comment and I will see if I can still find some and hopefully play them instead of just watching them.

Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us Review

The power of us Pokemon

(image from MyAnimeList)

Hey guys! Remember when I said that I was going to see two anime movies? Well, I saw one of them Wednesday, the new Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us. I was a bit skeptical seeing it, since the animation of Ash was different from what I am used to, but it was surprisingly good. I really liked the new characters with my favorite being Risa. Risa is one of the new characters, but I don’t want to spoil the movie, so let’s just say that she has a connection with Eevee in this movie, which made me like her even more. It’s hard not to spoil, so let’s focus on Ash’s new personality for now, since that was one of the things that impacted me the most.

Ash still loves Pokémon with a passion (Pikachu being the favorite), but the thing that changed about him is that he is more fearless. When I say fearless, I mean that he jumps into danger pretty fast and is very positive, even when the situation looks hopeless. I am used to seeing Ash with some panic when a plan is being made, but he is pretty calm, even when it looks like he is going to die (not dead yet). Even though his character is not what I expected, he was still a likable character, but I have to admit that I kind of cringed during his POSITIVE speech.

The story itself was very engaging, but there were points when it was predictable. Just because it was predictable doesn’t mean that I didn’t like it. It’s hard to explain, but even though I say it was predictable, they did it with a kind of twist that made it even sad (in a good way) or comedic.

Speaking of comedic, there were lots of funny points. I have to admit that some of the comedy was cringe worthy on my part, but it didn’t stop me from laughing. When it was funny, it came from the personalities of the Pokémon toward their trainer.

As for the graphics, very colorful and there was CG present in it, but I didn’t mind this time, since the story of the movie was good and it was barely noticeable when the focus is on the characters. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate all CG. I just don’t want it overused in an anime.

I have to admit that this movie was enjoyable enough that I want to buy a copy when it comes out on DVD or Blu-ray (whichever is cheaper). On another note, watching the Pikachu and Eevee scenes reminded me of Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!  & Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! (Can’t get it yet).

The review is short, since I don’t want to give any spoilers that would ruin the movie for others, so I recommend you guys give this at least one watch before you judge and if you played the new Pokémon game, please let me know if it is good, so I can try to save up money for the gaming system and the game itself.

The world is in the midst of the industrial revolution when horrific creatures emerge from a mysterious virus, ripping through the flesh of humans to sate their never-ending appetite. The only way to kill these beings, known as “Kabane,” is by destroying their steel-coated hearts. However, if bitten by one of these monsters, the victim is doomed to a fate worse than death, as the fallen rise once more to join the ranks of their fellow undead.

Only the most fortified of civilizations have survived this turmoil, as is the case with the island of Hinomoto, where mankind has created a massive wall to protect themselves from the endless hordes of Kabane. The only way into these giant fortresses is via heavily-armored trains, which are serviced and built by young men such as Ikoma. Having created a deadly weapon that he believes will easily pierce through the hearts of Kabane, Ikoma eagerly awaits the day when he will be able to fight using his new invention. Little does he know, however, that his chance will come much sooner than he expected…
