Black Clover

I saw a preview of this anime at AnimeNYC and I knew that I had to see this anime. If you like Fairy Tail, this is a show to watch. Black Clover is a fun and exciting show to watch. I love Asta and his drive to be the best. You cant help but to root for Asta. There is plenty of action and comedy in the show. Watching Asta and Yuno makes you believe that you can become anything you want to be with hard work. Continue reading

The Ancient Magus Bride

This is so far my favorite anime of the year. This anime made me cry and smile at the same time. I feel so emotional for the main character, Chise Hatori. This anime will always keep your emotions in check. This is a great love story, if you haven’t been watching it already.

Annoying Anime Tropes

As an anime fan, you learn to speak the language. And recognizing inconsistencies and common tropes is all part of the journey. After being suggested by a friend, I decided to dive a bit deeper into my expertise and discuss tropes that I can’t stand.

The CW Premiere of Black Lighting

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.

Favorite Songs of 2017

Happy New Year!

Last year, I compiled a list of my favorite K-Pop (Korean Pop) songs from that year. This year, I decided to do something little bit different, and focus on the little guy. Seeing how this is my first post of the New Year, I wanted to make it count. So it was very important that it felt authentic. These songs were all chosen based on feeling. And how often I went back to play then after my initial excitement was gone.

Fabolous has always been one of my favorite rappers since he appeared on my radar in the early 2000’s. His witty and charismatic rhymes provided an entertaining listening experience. And while, this particular post isn’t about his music but how can we really pay proper homage without at least acknowledging the artistry. Fab is also known for his fashion sense. Each fit has its own flair and story to go with it.  While I am not the most fashion conscious person, this is exactly why we’re here. To talk about nerdy influenced fashion and why Fab is Hip Hop’s Greatest Cosplayer.

At this point, in my blogging life, I think I’ve made my love for music and animation pretty clear. So anytime, they come together and further enhance each other story, I’m utterly excited.  I’ve been going to conventions for many years now and I have been seeing an influx of panels that combine these different narratives. During Anime NYC, I had the pleasure of attending two.  In this particular post, I will be focusing on Beyond Bebop: Japanese Jazz. Continue reading

ANIME NYC Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt Event

The Gundam Thunderbolt panel was an amazing panel. Not only did we get to view the first U.S. release of the movie but, also their was a mini concert with the band that performed the music from the anime soundtrack. The anime was based on the animated series Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt. The series was very short. The movie is a continuation of the animated series called Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt: December Sky, which continues the story of series after the One Year War.
