The Royal Tutor (Ōshitsu Kyōshi Heine)

I recently finished watching an anime called The Royal Tutor also known as Ōshitsu Kyōshi Heine 王室教師ハイネ and it turned out to be a really good show. I enjoyed the comedy and drama in the show. The characters are funny and all of them have unique personalities. Heine is my favorite character in the show because of his child-like appearance and his grown man voice. Heine was what had me hooked onto the show. Heine reminds me a lot of Sebastian from Black Butler with his mature attitude and his sense of humor.

MARVEL VS. CAPCOM Infinite

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.

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.
