A clip has been circulating online of Kevin Fierg the President of Marvel Studio hinting at a possible induction of Kamala Khan, New Jersey’s very own Miss Marvel. For those who are unfamiliar, Khan is a Pakistani American teenager of the Islamic faith who gains her powers in a “freak accident” like many of her hero counterparts. President Fierg doesn’t go into details on how or when they plan to introduce Kamala to the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) but allow me to ramble and speculate. But before I jump into it.

This year I was able to enjoy the AMV (Anime Music Video) contest. An AMV is a fan-made music video incorporating clips of one or more animated shows or movies. I started watching AMV’s on Youtube and the process is very tedious and time consuming cutting up the video clips, and editing it to make the video fit with the song. What I love most is how when you’re watching a AMV, it is like getting a preview of the anime which I think is better then watching a trailer because, it gives, more of an inside on what to look forward to in the show or movie.
AnimeNEXT has been hosting the AMV contest for years and overtime it has become a tradition. This was my first time attending an AMV contest, and I really enjoyed watching the contestant’s AMV’s and how they correlated it with the given theme’s.
