I have been feeling, among many other feelings, nostalgic lately. Specifically about video games and anime series. For weeks now I have been thinking of playing old video games that I feel like I miss. For example on the switch started going through the Mega Man X series again, not like I finished them all but did play a while. Also got Assassin’s Creed The Ezio Collection for Xbox One, did start it but haven’t played much after that. Also, I want to revisit NieR Automata, Horizon Zero Dawn, and Metal Gear Solid 5, all very time-consuming games. This, while also wanting to finish Death Stranding.
As far as TV Shows, I want to watch Dragon Ball Z again, sort of, been thinking about getting Season 2 of Dragon Ball Z Kai which pretty much covers the Freeza Saga, and to be honest, that’s all I want to watch of it. One series that I really want to catch-up on is Naruto Shippuden which I believe I left at the start of the second great ninja war, I think. There was some war going on, can’t remember which season is that. And let us not forget My Hero Academia which I am also behind, I’m at season 3 if I recall.
Too many things to play, too many things to watch, and very little time or patience/attention span for all of it. I am aware that most of it’s just the desire to relive those emotions when I first played those games or watch those series. Some of it is not even nostalgia I just want to continue the story. Whichever the case may be, the fact remains that, I might not even get to play/watch any of it.
In a world where magic is everything, Asta and Yuno are both found abandoned at a church on the same day. While Yuno is gifted with exceptional magical powers, Asta is the only one in this world without any. At the age of fifteen, both receive grimoires, magic books that amplify their holder’s magic. Asta’s is a rare Grimoire of Anti-Magic that negates and repels his opponent’s spells. Being opposite but good rivals, Yuno and Asta are ready for the hardest of challenges to achieve their common dream: to be the Wizard King. Giving up is never an option!
Granted special entry into the Great Raitai Tournament, a poisoned Baki now faces fighters in China, where the next true Sea Emperor will be chosen.
This Anime/TV show it’s ridiculous. Exaggerated body anatomy and over the top fighting, unreal and almost impossible scenarios. But gosh do I love this show! I have a weak spot for the ridiculous and over the top stuff. Especially in the times like these where I need something to take me out of the “real world” and this show, fits the bill.
Tatsumi sets out on a journey to help his poor village. When he’s rescued by a band of assassins, he joins their fight against the corrupt government.
Another good anime show on the Netflix’s! I have been watching this one pretty much all week. I’m not gonna lie, I am pretty much an easy sell when it comes to anime shows. Give me a lot of action, blood and awesome weapons and I’m in. This sure has all of the above! It has an interesting setting, good action, cool fights and of course your typical Japanese over sexualized characters and whatnot, which it can get a little weird sometimes. It is what it is when it comes to that but it’s still a very good enjoyable show. So far the story it’s good and you really get a feeling for these characters and their motives. I am really into the story as see how it develops.
I give this one 🍫🍫🍫/🍫🍫🍫
Watching one of my favorite Anime movies of all times: Appleseed
Best anime tv shows of all times, according to me. 😊 Or rather, my list of favourite Anime shows in no specific order.
Well, it finally happened, Luna (Year-One) had mage her first iTunes purchase. By mistake of course. Every once in a while she gets ahold of the Apple TV remote and does “stuff” but never thought she’d end up actually purchasing anything. I have no idea how but I got the receipt to prove it. 😐
DescriptionPatlabor: The TV Series is a 1989-1990 anime television series. It was created by Headgear, animated by Sunrise, and based on the Patlabor anime franchise. The story focuses on Second Special Vehicles Division, a group of Patlabor policemen who fight and investigate crimes.
I actually started using arching this anime show a while back but for whatever reason I sort of dropped it. Sometime last week I started watching again from where I left of. The show it’s great, I mean, If you’re a Japanese Animation nerd like me you should probably be watching this.
It is the Taisho Period in Japan. Tanjiro, a kindhearted boy who sells charcoal for a living, finds his family slaughtered by a demon. To make matters worse, his younger sister Nezuko, the sole survivor, has been transformed into a demon herself. Though devastated by this grim reality, Tanjiro resolves to become a “demon slayer” so that he can turn his sister back into a human, and kill the demon that massacred his family. A sorrowful tale of siblings in which the fates of humans and demons intertwine… begins now!
Like I’ve said, I started watching again last week but it was in the past two days were it got like really good! Very intense, action packed, impossible fights!
Sometimes I get so invested in these characters that I truly fear for them in each episode and I have been at the edge of my couch these past two nights. 😬
Love this show.

Also watching (or re-watching rather) Saint Seiya, the original from 1986! Not the new one, that one, it’s not as good.
This Anime TV show it’s pretty intense! So good!

I am really enjoying this show. It reminds me a lot of Full Metal Alchemist. They’re both sorta setup in a non-futuristic set and yet they have some Sci-fi technology. The the show has this steampunk vibe and I love it!
Despite being born powerless into a super-powered world, Izuku refuses to give up on his dream of becoming a hero. He enrolls himself in a prestigious hero academy with a deadly entrance exam. To make the grade, he’ll have to put in some serious study time with the mightiest hero of all.
This is an amazing show! I actually got into this show awhile back but had dropped it for a bit. Now I am resuming watching it again where I left of, Season 3. My problem is , I’m sort of scared of watching. Sounds very silly! Right (😅)? I get too invested on these shows and its characters. I always fear the worst it’s going to happen to them, it’s like “I can’t watch him/her get hurt” (🙈).

In the year 2029, the world has become interconnected by a vast electronic network that permeates every aspect of life. That same network also becomes a battlefield for Tokyo’s Section Nine security force, which has been charged with apprehending the master hacker known only as the Puppet Master. Spearheading the investigation is Major Motoko Kusanagi, who - like many in her department - is a cyborg officer, far more powerful than her human appearance would suggest. And yet as the Puppet Master, who is even capable of hacking human minds, leaves a trail of victims robbed of their memories. Motoko begins to ponder the very nature of her existence: is she purely an artificial construct, or is there more? What, exactly, is the “ghost” - her essence - in her cybernetic “shell”?
