Review: Hellsing, Vol. 10

Hellsing, Vol. 10 by Kohta Hirano My rating: 3 of 5 stars Well... this was an anticlimactic ending. 🙄. I was first introduced to Hellsing in Anime form in 2001.  The original ending of having "Incognito" as the big bad made little sense, but then I read somewhere on the web that the manga was not complete at that point, so the animators needed to modify the

Zone of Enders: Second Runner | Tried

This one is back from December of 2021. Once I finished the first ZoE, I thought I'd jump into the second one.  After about 5 hours of game time, I reached section 6.3 (of this walkthrough),o r 70% through the game, I ended up rage quitting 🤬🤬🤬 (also 😂 because I don't often rage quit).The thing that finally did me in was trying to bring Ardjet up to the surface and the stupid

TV - Star Wars Visions

Star Wars: VisionsI recently watched Star Wars visions, which is an animated anthology series that takes place in the Star Wars universe. The stories use different styles of anime, and the visual aesthetics (at least in some of the stories) really reminded me of Japanese Samurai stories in told in anime format and story. It is really appropriate given the origin stories of the original Star Wars.I

Zone of Enders | Done

 A bit out of order in terms of when I completed this game :-).  I've gone back to try to finish disc-based games (so I can safely pack them away).  In December 2021 I finished Zone of Enders, which was part of the HD remake for xbox 360 (box art shown is from the original xbox).Plot from Wikipedia:The game takes place in the year 2172; mankind has colonized Earth's, Mars', and Jupiter's

Jump Force | Tried

Tried June 2020xbox gamepassOne more game that I tried before my gamepass expired last year. I figured I'd try as many games as possible to see what I liked, in case they were on sale in the future (which this game appears to be frequently on sale).I am not all that familiar with the broader Dragonball universe. I recognize the characters, and I remember watching some Dragonball back in the day, but

Legend of Korra | Done

Another really quick review of an xbox 360 game that isn't backwards compatible to the xbox one that I did a quick run through in December of 2018.  This time the game is the Legend of Korra on the xbox 360 (I am surprised that it's not backward compatible!)I know that this is based on a cartoon, which I haven't watched.  But it is a brawler so it looked like fun.  The game resorts

Star Trek / Robotech Crosover

The other day I was browsing pintrest, which now gives me recommendation on various things Trek and space-based Sci-Fi.  I came across some fan art on a Valkyrie class attack ship which reminded me a lot of the Macross Saga (aka Robotech).  Now that would be an interesting crossover!

More humor... star trek Xtreme!

I was listening to Earl Grey, one of the Trek.fm podcasts, this past week, and the topic of discussion was about a fictions scenario, a what if they had made an animated series out of Star Trek: The Next Generation in the 90s once the live action series was off the air.  It was a pretty funny episode to listen to, especially if you've seen the mess that is Star Trek the animated series...well...and

Βλέπουμε Μάνγκα: Hellsing

Δεν με θεωρώ και πολύ «ουτάκου», αλλά εδώ και κάτι χρόνια έχω μπει στον κόσμου του «άνιμε» και των «μάνγκα». Για όσους δεν ξέρουν, τα μάνγκα είναι Ιαπωνικού στυλ κομιξ, και το άνιμε είναι ιαπωνικού στυλ κινούμενα σχέδια.

碇ゲンドウ - Περαιτέρω σοφά λόγια

Για να καλωσορίσουμε την καινούργια εβδομάδα, σας έχω και άλλο ένα πράγμα που είπε ο Ικάρι Γκέντο (碇ゲンドウ), ο πατέρας του Σίντζι - από το προηγούμενο πόστ αν θυμάστε. Σας δίνω λοιπόν κάτι να σας προβληματίσει την ερχόμενη
