SF BAnneer

Hey, what’s good everyone?  It’s been a little over a month since we attended Anime Next.   Between the three of us, we pushed out a ton content via our website and our other Social media outlets.  Videos, pictures and other exclusive releases. (via Twitter and Instagram) So if you aren’t following us, do so because you are missing out.  The grind was non-stop that weekend. But it’s Story Time.

MARVEL VS. CAPCOM Infinite

maxresdefault

I’ve been a MARVEL VS. CAPCOM fan ever since I played MARVEL VS. CAPCOM 2.  I loved this game so much that I bought a second copy for my Xbox 360.  And I played it all the time.  I didn’t even hop right on part 3 when it came out.  I waited for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 to drop before I transitioned over.  And boy, did I  love that game.  I suck at fighting games, video games in general but I would play it for hours on end. When I heard about MARVEL VS. CAPCOM: INFINITE, I was excited.

Fooly Cooly (Season 2 and 3 Trailer)

key_art_flcl

Fooly Cooly ( Furi Kuri) is one of the most memorable Anime’s of my childhood. Originally airing on American Television back in 2003.  Fast forward, 14 years later and the mere thought still brings a smile to my face.  From Naota cynical outlook to Haruko’s Vespa and everything in between, most of all Lord Canti.  So when Cartoon Network announced a possible remake, I was in shock but more over confused.  In all seriousness, FLCL has everything packed into six episodes.  What more could they possibly do?  My answer came in the form of a trailer.

Capturing Emotion with Avery Liburd

avery_liburd

New York City is a pretty big place. But if you run around in certain circles, you’re very likely to come across the same people. That was how I came to know Avery Liburd, formerly known as Avery Li or DarkShonobi on YouTube where we first met. I’m not sure if he remembers or not but when we ran into each other randomly in Midtown Manhattan, where we exchanged pleasantries and introduced ourselves. Thinking about it now, it’s kind of hilarious. Back then Youtube wasn’t the beast that it is now. That was how we connected, so it made perfect sense. And while it wasn’t the most interesting or awkward situation that I’ve encountered when randomly meeting people I talked to online, it definitely struck a chord. Fast forward a few years later, I now I have this platform. It’s important to return the love that was shown to you from way back.

“We build together”

When I reached out, here is what he had to say.

Artistic Expression with Takeia Marie

takeia_marie 
My first encounter with Takeia Marie happened randomly while attending New York Comic Con back 2012.  A rap cipher gone wrong in the middle of the artist alley show floor. She nice with the pen in more ways than one. She can spit.  And even though I embarrassed myself, it made that experience that much more memorable.  How many people can honestly say that they met in this type of manner at Comic Book convention. Not many! But we’ve been chopping it up ever sense.
So when I reached out for an interview.  This is what she had to say.

After long and exciting weekend. Drey and I, got access to the CAPCOM LIVE! concert. This was my first encounter with CAPCOM LIVE!, to be honest, I didn’t know what to expect but as a CAPCOM fan, I was curious.  I grew up on Super Fighter. And Resident Evil, is hands down on of my favorite game franchises.  Add in Mega Man and Devil May Cry, taking all into account. And I’m a happy camper. Naturally, the music has been with me just as long.

So let’s get right into it.

After a long day of running around, Drey and I took a small break in the Manga library.  Like the idiot I am, I started reading volume one Uzumaki うずまき by Junji Ito. Homie is twisted but that’s a topic for another day.  The library closes, now my mind fuckery level is at an all-time high. I was so confused.   That confusion only heightened.  

I was not ready.
