So yeah, it's been 15 years since the last R.Cubed, In that time, I lost my wife, kids, and even my lost my home for BS that I couldn't control. (NOT REALLY, BUT I'M BOTH MAKING THIS SEEM MORE TRAMATIC AND REFERENCING MY STORIES ON MY BLOG). Yeah some guy harassed me, and I just couldn't think of any good news stories at the time, but today, we've got Incredibles 2, Cars 3, Sailor Moon Crystal, and Pokemon an Netflix. So what are you waiting for, read this post, LIKE A BAWSE!!!!!
R.CUBED STORY #1: INCREDIBLES 2 AND CARS 3:
First and most relevant things first, Pixar announced Incredibles 2, and Cars 3. One of which I have mixed feelings about, and the other makes me despise Pixar for. We all used to think Pixar was perfect, but (to quote Bob Chipman, kind of) after they proved that they could make cute but unnecessary prequels, sequels and spinoffs, well intentioned misfires, and just plain bad movies, they kind of got overshadowed by other big dogs. Names like Dreamworks (even they’re showing signs of age), Disney’s main division, and even other animation studios, have taken Pixar’s formerly rightful crown. It’s kind of a shame Pixar’s producing a spin-off to Finding Nemo, sequels to The Incredibles, Cars, and possibly making Toy Story 4. It’s pretty much a no brainer why Cars 3 is a bad idea (only existing for toy sales, Cars 2 was pointless enough as it was, etc.), but Incredibles 2, I think that can work, just explain the whole underminer thing from the first movie, and NO the non canonical game doesn’t count, and wah lah, you’ve got Incredibles 2 (but I doubt that they’re going to do that just because they want to expand toy sales, and make new marketable characters rather than tell a good story). Both these movies can surprise me, but remember how good Toy Story 3 was?
R.CUBED STORY #2: SAILOR MOON CRYSTAL:
Yeah we had fun posting all those funny memes based on the first image of this anime, but let's get serious for a moment.
The new Sailor Moon anime got it’s title announced. It’s going to be called Sailor Moon Crystal. We do know it’s going to premiere in July of this year (even then don’t count on much on them fulfilling that release date, since this thing has been delayed, and promised for imminent release since as early as a couple winters ago), it’s going to be on the streaming service Nico Nico Douga worldwide, and it’s going to have a theme and ending performed by Momoiro Clover Z, but we knew this before. The real news is that the art and plot has been released. The art looks like another animators interpretation of the anime, but it looks to familiar, which can be a good or bad thing depending on how you look at it. The story looks largely unchanged from the originals, but I’m interested to see what quirks they add to the story, are they going to keep the monster of the day formula or are they going to be closer to the manga? Are they going to have a bunch of fillers or is it going to be a straightforward story? Only time will tell.
R.CUBED STORY #3: POKEMON ON NETFLIX:
I know I'm late, but still...
On March 1 of this year, Pokemon came out on Netflix this past weekend (the Pokemon anime to be exact, but you probably knew that already). The catch is that it’s only 1.5 seasons of the Pokemon anime and maybe a few movies. I say 1.5 because there’s only 52 episodes out of the 79 regularly aired Indigo League episodes. The full Black & White season’s there (by that I mean the first season of the Black and White series), but if Saban could air the whole 700 episode legacy of Power Rangers and then some right away, why can’t they air at least more than just over a tenth of the series. I MEAN COME ON, YOU HAVE AN 800 EPISODE SERIES AND COUNTING AND INFINITE POSSIBILITIES FOR ADDING EPISODES ON NEFLIX!!!! They have so much legacy to work with yet a good portion of the Indigo League is missing. Still, if i could recommend anything, just work with what you have, then work from there.
So if you were wondering why I didn't talk about the Huvr Board Fiasco, I didn't want to rip off Kayl...
