A new frESHlook full of nerdery, anime, and so much more.
Sometimes a frESHlook is full of win, sometimes it's not...but it sure is fun each week to scrounge around the net looking for inspiration.
Lots of positivity in this week's frESHlook, including Captain America: Civil War. What can I say, I love this stuff!
Although it is a weak season, the anime that do shine this winter are shining very brightly. In fact, there is one show that may stand as one of the all-time great anime! Don't believe me? Read on, and let me convince you.
Netflix snagged Aijin as an exclusive for their streaming service, so it's only available to those who can't wait for legal streaming. The bonus for waiting so long for Aijin is that it will be available in the original Japanese and an English dub. I know nothing more about Ajin than the trailer I have seen, but the hype is positive for it. I'll definitely talk about it if it lives up to the buzz.
3D CG has come a long, long way. At a certain point in anime's history. anime fans wouldn't even spit in the general direction of a CG show. Now, they look very impressive. Bubuki Buranki (BBK/BRNK) is an action show that just happens to be full CG. BBK/BRNK is about a family that is separated because of the powerful mecha known as Burakni. We meet the main character as a child, and years later, he is part of a team who wield Bubuki, which are parts of a Buranki. This does not rank in the best of winter 2016 because its most impressive in action, but not compelling in other respects.
This is a weird show. Very weird. Dagashi Kashi is about a sweets shop in Japan. Kokonotsu (AKA "Coconuts") Shikada is the son of the owner, Dagashi, and his father wants him to take over the family business. Then comes Hotaru. Hotaru wants Dagashi to come work for her father, but Kokonotsu has to take over the shop. This is how the weirdness begins. Hotaru, ample chested, is also incredibly well-versed in Japanese sweets, so she goes on rants about every single item in the shop. That's it. That's what this show is. I like it only because it's so uniquely odd.
In this week's frESHlook I've got more quick-take reactions to new visuals for some popular anime, video games, and comics to share this week.
It's time for a brand new frESHlook. This week I'm looking at some game stuff, some anime, and more.
Anime, games and more. It's time for a brand new February frESHlook
So many new things to check out that are coming soon...are you ready for a new frESHlook?
I've gathered together another round of first peeks, and gut reactions to some new anime, comics, and game stuff coming your way this week on Twitter.
I've said it once, and I'll say it again: the more obscure the characters, the better the fighting game. Sure, we've come to expect nothing but greatness from the likes of Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat, not to mention the
