Durarara!! author creates One Piece Ace Novel

Mentioned early this year, according to the One Piece magazine, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of One Piece, it has been announced that Durarara!! and Baccano! novelist Ryohgo Narita will be writing a novel focusing Monkey D. Luffy’s big brother, Portgas D. Ace. Based on the description, the novel will tell the story about Ace’s early life as a pirate from leaving Mt. Corvo to meeting the WhiteBeard pirates.

I would go on and tell you why Ace is an important character but I don’t want to spoil the story. I will say that this novel will reveal Ace’s character just like the anime and show his life as a Spade Pirate.

Ryohgo Narita is also doing a Bleach side story of Shuhei Hisagi for the spring and he previously did a past Bleach novel called Spirits Are Forever With You.

If you played the Dissidia games like myself on the PSP, you may have been following the news from Japan that there is an arcade game of the recent Dissidia game, Dissidia Final Fantasy, only exclusive in Japan. There are no newsin regards if it will be released through out the world but recent news states a console version is being made and unlike the arcade version, the console will have a story mode. Rumor has it that if the game reaches hgh demands and gets popular, this game could become an addition as an eSport!

To those who don’t know Dissidia, Dissidia Final Fantasy is a fighting game spinoff featuring fan favorite Final Fantasy characters. Players can play as the good and bad guys and duke it out in memorable worlds. In the past, Dissidia first started off in the PSP and later got a sequel.

Final Fantasy XV DLC

If you remembered the past news, it was confirmed that Final Fantasy XV will be releasing a dlc costume pack for Noctis and his friends called the Magitek Exosuits. However, recent news states that the suits dlc will be delayed and with a unconfirmed release date. The staff will modify and edit the costumes. Reason being is because it resembles the upcoming Sentai movie Power Rangers (movie comes out in March 24 in USA. July 15 in Japan).

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.
