Nintendo may not be doing so hot as a company right now, but the Pokemon franchise has never been stronger.

Review: “Yona of the Dawn” Part 1 Brings a Winning Fantasy Adventure

by Todd DuBoison July 26, 2016
Well-done fantasy is a special treat in Japanese animation (and the medium at large, for that matter), but well-done fantasy with a woman as the key and non-subordinate figure is a downright rare experience. But Studio Pierrot’s Yona of the Dawn delivers on both counts and joins Moribito and Twelve Kingdoms as a sterling example […]

Review: “CubexCursedxCurious” Blu-Ray/DVD is CrassxClichexCrummy

by Neo Yion July 25, 2016

Last night’s Conan contained one of the funniest surprises ever, as a supposed reel of potential Young Han Solo candidates displayed surprise celebrity after surprise celebrity bombing their auditions. Just when you thought you’d seen everyone, someone else showed up. This show’s got some crazy connections, apparently. That or their budget goes into the tens […]

SDCC 2016: The Flash Borks With History

by Peter Paltridgeon July 23, 2016
One of the pillars of the backstory on the Flash TV series is that Barry Allen lost his mother as a kid, when the Reverse Flash killed her. He had the chance to change this at the end of Season 1, but decided “no, what’s past is past and changing it would be bad.” Last […]
