Dragon Ball Z Kai anime review

Five years after the events of Dragon Ball, martial arts expert Goku is now a grown man married to his wife Chi-Chi, with a four-year old son named Gohan. While attending a reunion on Turtle Island with his old friends Master Roshi, Krillin, Bulma and others, the festivities are interrupted when a humanoid alien named Raditz not only reveals the truth behind Goku’s past, but kidnaps Gohan as well.

With Raditz displaying power beyond anything Goku has seen before, he is forced to team up with his old nemesis, Piccolo, in order to rescue his son. But when Goku and Piccolo reveal the secret of the seven mystical wish-granting Dragon Balls to Raditz, he informs the duo that there is more of his race, the Saiyans, and they won’t pass up an opportunity to seize the power of the Dragon Balls for themselves.

These events begin the saga of Dragon Ball Kai, a story that finds Goku and his friends and family constantly defending the galaxy from increasingly more powerful threats. Bizarre, comical, heartwarming and threatening characters come together in a series of battles that push the powers and abilities of Goku and his friends beyond anything they have ever experienced.

Keith | Final Fantasy XV -Fanfic Story-

This is the first fanfiction I ever read and I love it!

bellalucis

I created my own FFXV character. Her name is Keith. I created her after watching KINGSGLAIVE: FINAL FANTASY XV. I’m really inspired by the movie and the game that released on November 29 2016, that is FINAL FANTASY XV. 😊

Keith’s Profile

Keith became closest friend with Noctis, Prompto, Ignis, and Gladio. She does have feelings with the Prince, but she knew that Noctis and Luna are meant for eachother, so she won’t get in Luna’s way. She’s very respectful to royal people, especially to Prince Noctis and Princess Lunafreya.

Powers & Abilities

Keith has 4 powers. She recieved the power from a strange Crystal that has been hidden in a strange cave for many years. She got the powers when she was 9 years old, the day she lost her home. She has Ice, Fire, Timebreak (it’s not actually a timebreak, I’ve been trying to find the…

TGIF Friday Funny 93: I Summon Mega Ultra Chicken!

TGIF!

(The title is a joke from Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged)

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back for another episode of TGIF Friday Funny. In this post, I am here to bring laugh and joy and time to bring you some funny content and news! Today is the English Dub movie release of the classic anime and new movie Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Dark Side of Dimensions. This is the third Yu-Gi-Oh! movie and once again, the classic voice actors are back to play their roles.  If you are looking into watching a movie and don’t want to watch Monster Truck, check out this classic anime. Yu-Gi-Oh! is my favorite along with Pokemon.

Also happening this week is the official release to Kingdom Hearts HD II.8 Final Prologue Chapter. In this game, KH II.8 collects three games in which connects and leads to upcoming game Kingdom Hearts III. Square Enix also released a free DLC for players who have World of Final Fantasy. Players will receive the chibi version of Sora as a partner. But there’s more, if you are like me and don’t have the games but you have Final Fantasy XV, Square Enix recently released an update where players who downloaded the free Festive Pack will be able to participate in the Moogle Chocobo Carnival! Players can minigames, obtain outfit like clothing, and exclusive frames and also take pictures without Prompto needed. It’s super fun! Hurry because it’s not permanent. Square also released more DLC such as car decals like 16-bit characters and a Cindy themed decal for the Regalia. They also released weapons from past FF titles to help Noctis fight such as Lightning’s signature weapons from Final Fantasy XIII.

This week has been filled with Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts ad Yu-Gi-Oh lately! Don’t forget to check out the OWLS blog tours from members like Naja, Pink, and Takuto. With this said, let’s have some fun!

Blogger Recognition Award *500 followers!*

Thank you Capili Jiron of Artist of Beauty for nominating me for the Blogger Recognition Award. This is my special post I mentioned on the weekend. I want to say thank you to my 500 followers! It’s 2017 and I have 500 followers following my blog. Some of you stayed with me for a long time, some are new people. To the old followers, thank you for staying with me. New followers, welcome and I hope you like my content!

sora-smile-ddd

Now let’s begin this special award post! My change it up and explain more of my beginnings.

Here are the award rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Write a post to show your award.
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  • Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  • Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to.
  • Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them and provide the link to the post you created.

Two Helpful Advice:

1. For news writers, if you write the news like me, do not just copy and paste. Write the news in which interests you and what will make people read. I write anime news and I get my sources from Anime News Network, IGN and Crunchyroll. If I copied and paste every news, I am stealing someone’s work. Write in your own words and support your sources. Focus on what will appeal to your audience.

2. Find friends that actually care about you. If you find someone that likes you as a person, respects you and actually care about you, those are the people that are worth talking to everyday. They are reasons why you visit them online. Surround yourself with people that actually care about you. If a friend likes you regardless of your flaws, they are worth keeping in life.

Big Beginning:

I have told this before to my old blogger friends but I will tell you my story again for the new people. Sit tight and let meet tell you a story like none other.

I first got started blogging in 2014 while taking an English college class on the public sphere. My professor instructed us to create a WordPress account. Our job is too blog about the news and why is it important to talk about public information. Every week, I wrote news about current events and discussed in my class. It was pretty fun and you can see my past writings in my blog. After I passed my class, I left my blog behind and told myself that I was done blogging. At the end of 2014, I wanted to share my love and passion of anime and video games and meet friends. It was hard finding friends who like anime and I thought the internet would help me. I also wanted to do a journal to keep track of my life but I felt that was too personal. This came to the conclusion that I still got my blog and I could convert it to my personal anime blog. By 2015, I began my life as aniblogger!

Fantastic Friends and where to find them

It was pretty hard to find some friends online. I couldn’t find because I didn’t know where to start and I was also afraid to meet them. I was always told to not talk to strangers and my school always emphasized that if you don’t be careful, you will get cyber bullied.

clannad-scared-kitomi

If you seen Clannad, I was Kotomi.

One of the first bloggers I met was Arria Cross from Fujinsei. I came across her blog while search through the web and saw she made posts about One Piece, a favorite anime of mine. I don’t remember exactly what was the post I commented but it had something do with epic moments or sad moments of One Piece; I left a comment and left. Another blogger I met along the way was Shay of Anime Reviewer Girl. At first when I came across her blog, it was different than Arria’s blog. I noticed that Shay did posts about discussions and one of her posts she did was a topic about Americans responding to Anime (I’m not sure if she still has it). I simply left my feedback on her discussions and left. On another search, I met Lita from LitaKinoAnimeCorner. When I first saw her video, I thought to myself “Nice intro music. I never met anyone who loves anime like me. She looks proud and happy to express it… it’s rather cute.” Again with the bad memory, I think I only commented on her posts and it was something about Please Twins or Avatar.

At that time, I was skeptic about people responding, I told myself “I doubt anyone would respond. They might get to it next week or forget it. Oh well, at least I participated in something. Got to find people.” As you can tell, I was always Pessimistic and didn’t think anyone cared.

A while later, Arria responds and I was hesitant reply back; I later did and we had a great discussion of One Piece. I later followed her and became one of her friends. I enjoy reading her posts about One Piece and I always chucked and noted the Blogging tips. As an act of support, I always reblogged them and whoever comes to my blog will learn about blogging and visit Fujinsei. When Shay responded later, she liked my comment and agreed with my comment. I was surprised because I always thought you have to be careful about leaving opinions online. When Shay kindly listened to me, I was happy to have a discussion with her. It made me think that someone actually cares about my opinion. Lita also commented back to me and just like her videos, she was very kind and she made me come back for more of her stuff. She always listens and enjoys feedback. I was very honored to have her featured me for one of her Friday posts.

My parents actually found out about my blog by accident. I let the cat out of the bag. They were shocked and surprised. They didn’t know I was writing online and I talked people. They looked me and ask “people actually read your stuff?” I only chucked nervously said “yeah.”

My exaggerated reaction:

Anyway, as much as I want to talk more bloggers out there, I will have to tell my story another time. If I wrote more, you would have to read it the entire day or two. Anyway, I will end this post with my nominees.

Bad News: Sekirei license expires!

Once again. FUNimation has some bad news. We are losing another anime title.

Much like the past anime (Darker than Black, both Fullmetal Alchemist anime, Bacanno!, Birdy the Mighty: Decode), FUNimation will be losing the anime action, harem series Sekirei. The anime license will expire on February 9th. That means, they will stop selling the home DVDs and they won’t be reprinting any more. If you haven’t bought this anime, you better hurry and pick up the complete collection set or the Season sets. The anime has two seasons!

Judging by the cover, it has the Aniplex title on it. I highly recommend anyone in the future to buying more Aniplex anime from FUNimation to ensure to save a copy.
