Sailor Jupiter from the hit anime series Sailor Moon is probably one of my earliest girl crushes since Sailor Moon was one of the first shows I watched that introduced me to anime. Makoto Kino (Lita Kina in the English adaption) is her name and she’s my favorite sailor scout. I liked Makoto first because she was the green scout and green is my favorite color then as I watched the show and saw what powers she inherited as a Sailor Scout, I liked her even more since she was the “muscle” one of the group. Makoto powers are Electrokinesis, Phytokinesis, Expert martial artist, Superhuman strength, speed, and agility.
Viola Davis has always been an inspiration to me and nothing short of amazing. Viola is a successful woman in the entertainment world, her acting has been some of the most incredible performances we’ve seen in some time and she’s vocal in her activism about equal pay and women’s rights which made me put her on a pedestal I can’t seem to take her off of.
The first person I would pick that would inspire many through her struggle is Chise Hatori from the anime Ancient Magus Bride. This anime as I mentioned in this previous post The Ancient Magus Bride is extremely emotional. Chise inspires many through her vigorous and heroic actions.
With all the excitement surrounding Black Panther which is debuting in theaters this weekend, it feels like we’ve been waiting forever for a black superhero movie. Now that it’s finally happening especially during black history month I don’t know if next year can top it. Black people as a whole have been lighting up social media about Black Panther since his MCU appearance in Captain America: Civil War. Twitter has started a storm and were all here for it, This is the week the hashtag #BlackPantherweek and #BlackPanthersolit is really active and people are out here living their best life waiting for the weekend.

We’ve been blessed again with another gift and that is The Black Panther Album. The album had high anticipation since it was announced that Kendrick Lamar was producing it with Anthony Tiffith. I have to say this album really did meet expectations after listening to it a few times. With the growing momentum around the Black Panther movie, I’m pretty sure there is going to be negative reactions towards this album because of the artists on the album but overall it turned out better than I expected it to. The album has great replay value and introduced me to a few new artists I’ve never heard before. Continue reading →
Finally, we get to see another black superhero come off the pages. Black Lighting is the latest DC superhero to bless the TV waves, even though there has been little to no promo of the premiere of this show on The CW the internet will not let you forget that there’s another black superhero we need to support. I haven’t seen much of any promo for this series until about last week on my way home I noticed a Subway advertisement finally showing Black Lighting. If you’re new to Black Lighting don’t feel bad about it because I discovered Black Lightning about 3 years ago while looking for more black superheroes, I’m happy to see this character come to life because when I found him I then started reading up on comics he appeared in and started falling in love with the backstory since it’s really relatable to the average city life minus the superpowers.
