[65] Upping the Ante – Megalobox Does Gambling Right

Tags

, , , , ,

Coming out of the high of Hajime no Ippo, I jumped into the spring season of anime in search of underdogs, drama and a healthy dose of violent competition. With Megalobox’s debut promising just that and more, I eagerly jump into the stylishly gritty world of underground boxing.

[63] Remembering the Shounen

Naruto was my childhood. Okay, maybe that statement’s stretching it a bit considering I’m not even in my twenties yet. Still, the fond memories of me binge-watching episodes at the cafeteria, library, and even mid-lecture will probably follow me for awhile longer. It was my very first shounen after all; a time where I escaped from my daily routine to join Team 7 on their various escapades, mimicking their hand signs (I’d honestly still make them if I remembered any), and just having fun with it. I don’t recall when I first realized Naruto’s childhood was a reflection on loneliness, nor did I care for it until much later in the series. To the me only a few years ago, Naruto wasn’t a character-driven journey. It was all about the fights, the special abilities, and the strategies revolving around them.

What made a shounen a shounen.

Resolutions – Aniblogging into 2018

Confessions as we start the new year.

I’m a lucky guy. How many people can say they celebrate New Years twice? One with a great group of friends and the other with a supportive family? Though the official New Years here in the States may be on January 1st, I don’t start thinking about resolutions until Lunar New Year comes around. I think it’s especially important for me this year, however, as I jump into 2018 with what is my biggest continuing project ever.

[62] Kuroko’s Basketball: Last Game – Witnessing Strength

There’s an unspoken promise in Kuroko’s Basketball; a big what if. It’s a promise that – aside from the games themselves, I was looking forward to seeing the most. The promise that by the end of it all, we’ll see all the star players from the different teams get back together for a game. The hype for this is immense and Kuroko’s Basketball takes this scenario and knowingly hypes us up with foreshadowing, and the odd flashback here and there. Sure Aomine and Kagami may be sworn rivals, but what we want to see more isn’t a victory; it’s them working together to absolutely crush the competition.

Kuroko’s Basket: Last Game gives us just that.

When I came across this question while transcribing everything onto paper, I honestly laughed. Then the realization that I’ll have to eventually answer this was put off for the next 56 days.
