My Quick Thoughts on Ultraman X...

ATATATATA!!!!!! 2-HIT COMBO!!!!!!

This is the Final blog I'll post all year, but I've got exciting things for 2016, What a year for tokusatsu, we've got Ninninger, Drive finished it's run, Power Rangers redeemed itself with Dino Charge, Ghost came (ummmmm.... Yay?), some niche toku like GARO and Fujiyama Ichiban came and went, and this is also the year tokusatsu that's not your typical Godzilla and Power Rangers became profitable, with more and more toku being released here legally.We've got some big things in store for 2016. One big thing that came out was Ultraman X (not to be confused with Ultraseven X or Kamen Rider X), showing currently running toku can be watched legally, but was it good?

My quick thoughts on Star Wars: The Force Awakens

ATATATATA!!!!!! 3-HIT COMBO!!!!!!!!!!
Mild Spoilers Ahead!


Short version, Solid B, Good but not great, Not as good as the original trilogy, maybe the next 2 movies will be the ones that determine this one's quality. Yeah, go see it, You'll have a good time...


You count the medals 1, 2, & 3! Life Goes on, anything goes, coming up OOO!!! Kamen Rider OOO Review

ATATATATA!!!!!! 2-HIT COMBO!!!!!!


Over a year ago, I teased my OOO review along with it's movie, but I haven't seen the series yet. Now I have, what do I think of it (especially since people thought it belonged on the Top 5 Must See Kamen Rider Series over Wizard, but  you need to understand, Wizard has a special place in my heart (I won't explain why now, but keep assured, something like that is coming))? It's pretty good, don't see myself putting it over Wizard, but It makes the perfect companion show to the AMAZING GOKAIGER!!!! In all seriousness, OOO is a great series for those who liked Gokaiger back in the day.



Gaming Bits: Bandai Wonderswan (56k Warning)



We did it, the Final console of it's era. Not many of you know what this wonder (pun intended) of a console is, that's because it was only released in Japan, and did pretty well there too. It even got an 8% market share of the portable games market in Japan. an honor the Neo Geo Pocket Color couldn't boast about. It all started when things went bad with Nintendo and one of it's developers, Gunpei Yokoi, the creator of the Game Boy.

Sailor Moon SuperS Report Card



If the S in Sailor Moon S stood for Super, I have several questions on the title for this season. Why call this season SuperS? What does the other S in SuperS (SuperSuper? SuperStars (not to be confused with Sailor Stars)? Just plain S? WHAT?)? Is the term plural (refer to the first question for why even that doesn't make sense)? Anyway now that I've got my rambling out of the way, Here's the report card for the series...

Top 5 Must See Kamen Rider Series



I did this for super Sentai a little over a year ago, You bet your ass I'm doing this for The bug eyed, motorcycle riding, rider kicking badasses known as Kamen Riders. Kamen Rider is much Darker than Sentai, but it's more dense. So Kamen Rider isn't really the best introduction to toku. but I gathered a list of Kamen Rider Series to start out with based off of a mix of my personal Cream of the Crop, Beginner accessibility, and most people I can recommend it to. Keep in Mind I haven't seen everything. even more so than super Sentai, some rider series I plan to watch include Stronger, More of Amazon, more of Super-1, Kuuga, Ryuki, Blade, and Kiva, and I'm watching OOO and Black RX as I'm Writing this... Without further Fanfare, Here we go, Count Zero, Kamen Rider Agito...

Goodbye Drive, Hello Ghost...


Yeah, we'll get to the Kamen Rider stuff, but I want to quickly touch on the Juohger reveal, which can be summed up in one 6 word sentence, "So yeah, That was a thing" Be honest, the helmets look alright, but what kills the suit for me is the rest of it. The torso looks like something you can get at the Hot Topic or Rainforest Cafe. I don't want these douches to save the world for an entire year and based on the mech designs, it looks like we're getting another Comedy Sentai. Ninninger was the right idea, but not quite there. The mech looks like a freaking Lego robot, and I don't just mean those cool space sets, I mean it looks like a robot you could built with Legos you can buy in a tub from a big box store.  The folding robots worked for Shinkenger, but they look like crap here. As of now the role play weapons haven't been revealed, but if they look as ass as the mechs and suits do, I almost wish we got Space Bugs for the 2016-2017 season. I wrote a blog for how a space bugs season would go. Who knows maybe the season will rock my socks off, but so far I'm not impressed...

A. Yoshi Opinion Piece: NOT ANOTHER DOAX3 POST!!!!!!

ATATATATA!!!!!! 2-HIT COMBO!!!!!!
Viewer Discretion is Advised.


Koei Tecmo announced that they're not releasing Dead Or Alive Xtreme 3 to America or PAL Regions (AKA Asia only), since then, there's been debate, Condescending Clickbait videos and articles from self important journalists who are trying to cash in to the story (DO I EVEN HAVE TO NAME NAMES!!!!!), and feminist backlash to Play Asia. I'm here to tell everyone to STFU because we lose either way!!!!!



Gaming Bits: Sony Playstation 1 (56k Warning)



The PS1. The most successful console of it's time, with 102 MILLION UNITS Sold worldwide, Not a failure by any means. It's not my favorite console of the era, but it is the most interesting, with a history going as far as the 1980s, a full decade before the console was released. It popularized CDs as a legit form of storage for games. It started with a deal gone bad with Nintendo, and evolved to one of the biggest names in gaming. This is the story of the Sony Playstation...

Gaming Bits: Game Boy Color, A handheld blinded in nostalgia or a gemof our childhoods? (56k Warning)


They say a lot of people are too tied to nostalgia, what I mean by that a lot of the stuff we like as kids aren't as good as adults, sure there's exceptions, but think about it Beast Wars > G1 Transformers, A lot of post 1987 TMNT Cartoons > The 1987 Original, 2011 Thundercats >1985 Thundercats, 2002 He-Man > 1983 He-Man, Future Power Rangers Seasons > MMPR, and and the most controversial one, Sailor Moon Crystal > Sailor Moon Classic. The Game Boy was the portable NES, it was in Black and Spinach Green, but It lived a good long life. The Game Boy Color didn't nearly live as long of a life, mainly due to the Game Boy Advance, But was it any good? Kind of...

Too Infinity and Beyond!!!!! Part Deux... Toy Story 2 Tribute



HAPPY 20th ANNIVERSARY TOY STORY!!!!!! The First one was a childhood classic, and The second one, while not quite to the level of personal preference as the original had some enjoyable qualities. It is objectively better than the original, but it isn't the game changer that the original was. what makes me say all that about this, am I s**ttalking the movie, while giving Psuedo Praises to it? Nah, This really has downgrades and upgrades to the original... I'll get more into it as I go into it...

Kinnikuman Retrospective: American Tour Arc: Part 1

ATATATATA!!!!!! 2-HIT COMBO!!!!!!
56k Beware and Spoilers Ahead


So Kinnikuman Completed a year of serialization in Weekly Shonen Jump, It had a tournament, a goofy beginning arc, and sense of adventure in areas, I bet Yudetamago was asking themselves a simple question...


Now What?

I feel like that Kinnikuman wasn't supposed to go on past the Kaiju arc, then the chojin olympics, but it became a sensation all over japan, inspiring Akira Toriyama to put aspects of it in series like Dr. Slump and Dragon Ball. Kinnikuman could've gone just about anywhere under the weight of it's own wrestling nature, for that it went to the then rising in popularity american wrestling scene. It won't be as unique as the zany characters of the Chojin Olympics, but it gives it a sense of realism that we won't see in future arcs. This is the Kinnikuman American Tour Arc...


Gaming Bits: Nintendo 64 (56k Warning)


Earlier this Year, I talked Nintendo in the 5th generation of video game consoles, Which talked among other things the N64. It was my first game console, it's games were arguably just as, if not more influential than the PS1's, it created some of the things we take for granted in games today. The analog stick, the popularization of FPS games on consoles, 4 players right out of the box, rumble, targeting, enhanced resolution, all this and more in the fun machine, this segment in gaming bits, we'll be talking it's ups, downs, lefts, rights, and my personal experiences with it...

A. Yoshi Theory: How will the Pokemon anime end?



The Pokemon anime is one of the most successful cartoons aired anywhere. It even has more episodes than any animated show in America, but let's face it, it's jogging in place, you're allowed to do that when you're a landmark series in any region's pop culture as this series. However, like it or not, it's (probably) going to end, they're going to lose a irreplaceable cast or crew member and it'll end. Even then, some anime has a ridiculously long shelf life, with some lasting since the 60s (take that Simpsons). Action/shonen shows aren't supposed to last this long, and they're done when they're done, but here's a list of possible endings for this long running anime...

Everything you need to know about Yo-Kai Watch...


You know those funny blogs with lots of thought, meat on the bones, and occasional story I do a lot?This is not one of those, This is a segment for parents, and questioning gamers and toy collectors whether you should or shouldn't buy this game and it's various media and merchandise. So Yo-Kai Watch, The franchise that envy's Pokemon and has a lot of fans in Japan. It's got the backing of Nintendo, Viz, and Hasbro in America, You've no doubt seen the commercials all over Cartoon Network, Nick, Disney, and maybe whatever the Hub's called this week. So it's going to be a children's fad not quite the size of Pokemon, but it'll have it's 7-11 year old fans who'll look at this franchise with the same type of fondness 90s kids have for Pokemon and Power Rangers, and buy the more expensive merchandise 10 years from now if/when it goes to the adult collectors market... So here's everything you need to know about Yo-Kai Watch...

Gaming Bits: The Mystery of the M2... (56k Warning)


The year is 1998, a true 64 bit CD Based console was supposed to be released. It was supposed to be made by Panasonic and it was built up since the early to mid 90s, but in the previous year, it was canceled. However later in the decade and the years onward it was repurposed to be in stuff like Coffee vending machines in Japan, ATMs, and Interactive Kiosks. What happened? What caused this Cancellation? What caused what could've been the most powerful console of its time to turn into a laughing stock amongst games journalists? Find out today...

A. Yoshi Opinion Piece: Should Nintendo Go After the Cemu Wii U Emulator?

ATATATATA!!!!!! 2-HIT COMBO!!!!!!


Over The past 2 decades, the Internet's been filled with Pirates and people making derivative works out of copyrighted works, but really some companies are so paranoid that they abuse their power and go on a witch hunt for people who infringe on copyright. Heck governments are STILL trying to pass SOPA like legislature even though 1) It's just going to backfire when Tumblr, Reddit, 4chan, Mozilla, and other related companies and organizations say"NO, This is NOT Okay", and 2) It wouldn't get that much backlash if they didn't make it so draconian. Enough about that let's talk about what you want to hear so you can S**tpost me on 8chan, and go back to fapping to your Lolicon (look it up, but you're going to regret it), Nintendo's been on a witch hunt for the better part of 2 years, maybe more, for let's players, streamers, and reviewers, but they very seldom go after people who post actual copyright infringing people like ROM Sites (We'll come back to that), torrent sites, and people who actually use their characters or names for products or services (something I'm just as guilty of as anyone else), heck it's one of the big reasons they fell from the top 100 recognized brands in the world. But with a up and coming Wii U emulator on the horizon, Let's play devil's advocate and look at the problem and how they can fix it...

Gaming Bits Quickie: Hyper Neogeo 64


Let's take a break from the storylines for a nit to talk about the Nintendo 64... The N64 was a 64 bit arcade board by SN... Wait, that's not right... 7 games, only 12 reference cards...

Naimitsu Sentai Chameleman (released in the US as Power RangersChameleon Force). Kamen Rider Black Movie 1 Mini Review


This year for Toku Month, I'm not doing any skits, any storylines, or anything like that... Instead, I'm doing 2 movies of Kamen Rider Black, the series, and that's the basic jist of Toku Month 2015, a little smaller this year, but all for a big payoff on the 31st.

AY: But why are the Yoshiettes Ramenman and Brocken Jr.?

Gaming Bits: Neo Geo Pocket Color


In 1999, SNK (creators of the Neo Geo) was struggling, Their Neo Geo MVS and AES Systems was declining due to the decline of arcades, and they're system not being up to par with its competition. Heck, the successor to said system the Hyper Neo Geo 64 pretty much failed. They tried to compete with Nintendo's ever dominant Game Boy line, the original Neo Geo Pocket, It failed due to the just released Game Boy Color (which actually had color, obviously) and the ever growing Pokemon Franchise, and it wasn't released outside of Asia. A year later in 1999, SNK released a new portable worldwide...

Ginga Tensei, Ole! Seijuu Sentai Gingaman + Choriki Sentai Ohranger Review


Timeline 1:

I'll be honest, I like Super Sentai better than Kamen Rider, at least before Gaoranger came about. Is it because the pre-2000 Sentais were Darker and Edgier? Was it because they dealt with heavier themes? Whatever it is, sentai series in the mid 80s up until 2000, showed how good toku storytelling can be. MillionFold Curiosity finished subbing 2 series, Since I have only time to review one of them, and whatever I review will Impact how the events and how I feel today, Let's talk about StarBeast Task Force Gingaman...

A. Yoshi Opinion Piece: Is the Superhero genre going to die in the near future?


So Steven Spielberg says that the Superhero genre is going to go the way of the western sometime in the future. by that he means the superhero movie. This has caused a lot of debate, speculation, and sensationalist clickbait articles. But is there some merit to that statement? The answer may shock some of you...

Gaming Bits: Sega Saturn (56k WARNING)



If I had to pick my favorite Game Companies of all time (regardless of any past or current Drama), Sega would be in the Top 3, along with Konami (#REDANDORANGEBACONSTRIPSFOREVER), even if they've been involved in some major BS in the past couple of years, and the Big N themselves, Nintendo, in which you can expect a mega sized, Nintendo Double Diamond Retrospective Daizenshu (or Complete Works), but as of right now, Sega's in critical condition, with them making sub par games based off of recent movies, and 3rd rate Sonic Games. But once upon a time sega made good s**t, they made memorable consoles, and they enjoyed every last second of it. In this 2 parter, we'll see just what went wrong, the positives amongst the negatives, and if their consoles of that time were really that bad...

The heart attack advisory episode... Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers: Rita's Pita Episode mini-review (Power Rangers Day 2015 Special)


OK since I did this thing for 2 years in a row, It's becoming tradition, I reviewed a MMPR Episode once for the franchise's 20th anniversary and again a year later when it became old enough to drink, Now in honor of Power Rangers' 22nd anniversary, we take a look at a weird one, from season 3. I admit season 3 for the second 2/3 of it was pretty normal for the most part, with epic 3 parters, and the alien rangers saga didn't divulge into the weird really either, sure there are exceptions like the episode showing of Bulk and Skull's musical skill, but honestly it was pretty much not as weird as previous seasons, which is perfectly OK, because Power Rangers tells 3 types of stories, epic storyline driven stories, Normal life made abnormal by monsters stories, and WTF Type stories. This  episode falls into the 3rd type, so indulge yourselves into the Diabetes driven episode of Rita's Pita...

I DISCUSS A LOT OF TECHNICAL TERMS FOR THE FIRST HALF OF THIS AND DO SHOW M RATED GAMES DURING THE SECOND HALF!


The time is mid-1995, the Sony Playstation is about to wow any and all gamers as it did in Japan the previous year, Developers were still learning the Sega Saturn, Nintendo's 64 was almost ready to come out, and The oldest surviving gaming platform was about to show what it was really made of. an easy to use Universal Operating System for IBM PC and Compatibles (which were in of themselves becoming cheaper and more accessible to to the home user) has came out appealing to businessmen, power users, gamers, and your typical Average Joe who wanted a simple non-clunky OS for IBM PC and Compatibles. That OS came to be known as...

My quick thoughts on Ultraman Ginga S...



Today we're going to talk about Gingama... Wait there's a smudge from the A&W I was drinking last night. I'm actually reviewing Ultraman Ginga S...

Get the hate mail ready, I mean go to your email account/client to send Death Threats to me. I'm not a big fan of Ultraman... Do I hate it? NO!!!! I rather kind of like it. but once you've seen Ultraman, you've kind of seen Ultraman. This Especially goes for the Showa/Early Heisei era Ultra shows. There's its strong points, like the creative monsters (a la Power Rangers/Super Sentai (special mention goes to that totem pole monster from Mebius), and the designs of the Ultras themselves, especially the later Heisei Ultras. I believe I talked about Ginga Orignial a year ago, and needless to say, IT SUCKED!!!!! Bland characters, religious undertones, and an abuse of filler. Ginga S is longer, but is it better than The Original?

Gaming Bits: Custom Robo Series



February 27, 1996, a worldwide phenomenon was born. A dream project of a little company known as Game Freak we all know as Pokemon was created. At first it wasn't that popular, but with huge deals with Media Factory, TV Tokyo, Tomy, and Corocoro Comic lead to a craze all over japan, with card games, anime, manga, toys, controversial headlines in the news, events, and yes, even imitators, everyone from Bandai, to Tecmo, to Imagineer, to Konami, to even Nintendo themselves tried to challenge the almighty Pokemon with various degrees of success. Nintendo released two games that never made it out of Japan. One was Card Hero, which was intended for an american release, but was canceled for unknown reasons, Though I do have a theory on it, I'll wait until later into the retrospective to explain. The other game was...

My quick thoughts on Madoka Magika: The Rebellion

ATATATATA!!!!!! 2-HIT COMBO!!!!!!
SPOILERS AHEAD!!!!

Dear M****B*b,

How's home life doing?  You ahve been mustering up a lot of controversy as of late... With the whole Gamergate thing (Which I don't give 2 Fraks about anymore), adding a storyline which some believe is as adventurous and epic as 60s Hanna Barbera Action Show to your oldd main show (which doesn't exist anymore), and Your Book (which I haven't read since I'm Broke and have no interest in buying it if I wasn't, or even the will to Pirate it). The internet taught us a valueable lesson last week, Never, ever make a slanderous review of an adam sandler movie where you attack and borderline threaten him, I wonder who taught us that lesson? I admit the review felt justified (since the movie looks stupid), if a little childish (ask me about how being angry for views worked out for me sometime). I'll still follow you until you do something EXCEPTIONALLY Stupid to me. I still have an intern (2 in fact), do you still have an intern? Is it old or new? Are you a MarzFan by any chance (even though I'm struggling to return to the fandom)? Keep In Touch...

Sincerly,
Your Pupil

A. Yoshi: Yoshiette 1, Come and mail this to Boston...

Yoshiette 1: God damn you're annoying...

The Premature end of A. Yoshi News Desk...

People are so going to hate me for this, but I'm canceling Anonymous Yoshi News Desk 2 months in. The basic version is that a lot of this blogs whether they'd be history pieces, news stories, reviews, or even updates take a lot of energy out of me, and having 20 different blog series on a regular basis only takes more of that energy from me, Kind of the reason I made my quick thoughts "series" if you want to call it that. It's also the reason I have to pause my Kinnikuman Retrospective every few arcs, another thing this energy draining caused me to do is taking away the epic storyline for my blogs. I've been doing this blogging thing for almost 4 years, and various changes have occured. Another big reason I had to quit is that I wait until the last minute to find stories, and I miss some, I need energy for this gig. So the moral of this story is I want to keep this gig as fun as possible, even if I have to make drastic changes. Does that mean R.Cubed will return? Maybe... But right now I need to catch a breath after such a big July... But keep in mind this isn't the end of Geek news in the world of Anonymous Yoshi Blogs. :)

Sailor Moon S Report Card

The S Stands for Super, Forgetting the confusion with Sailor Moon SuperS, Which I'll get into next part. This was a season of transition for the series, higher stakes, more sci-fi elements, darker tone, It had the apocalyptic nature of the finales of the previous arcs in manga and crystal form, not to mention the character list was expanded vastly. How is this arc compared to the original and R Arc? Find out today because where halfway to finishing the original anime...

Gaming Bits: Conker: A Story of a Deconstruction of the Mascot Platformer

Before we begin, we are talking about Mature Rated games, while I'll be trying to keep this segment family friendly, reader discretion is still advised...


I don't know about you, But I love the 3D Platformer, It was the #1 genre of the N64, My favorite console of all time. It had games like Super Mario 64, Crash Bandicoot 1-3, Sonic Adventure 1 & 2, Spyro 1-3, Croc 1 & 2, Ape Escape Series, Banjo-Kazooie series, Jak and Daxter, Ratchet and Clank series, Sly Cooper Series, Donkey Kong 64, heck I have fond memories of That Toy Story 2 game that always was a tad bit hard at times for me (then again I was 6 at the time and the pinnacle of my gamer life was Kirby 64), I even have nostalgia for games you wouldn't exacly consider Traditional Platformers like the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series (think about it for more than a rash reaction with Picard from Star Trek: Next generation facepalming with a cutesy poo "I'll just leave this here...") and Super Monkey Ball. But one game satnds out as one of the most interesting and one of my favorite Rareware games of all time, That was the deconstruction of the genre known as Conker's Bad Fur Day.

Blip's going to be gone soon, Why am I not Surprised?

Well this was bound to happen, a few days after Superman beat Goku again (which I completely expected because simply put Goku can get upgrades until the end of time, he'll just be to flawed to compete with godlike Superman), Disney/Maker is closing blip.tv on the 20th of next month. Why am I not Surprised?

Anonymous Yoshi News Desk: June 2015



Welcome to the June edition of Anonymous Yoshi News Desk... For the benefit most of my international readers, in case you weren't aware, we've had a bit of rough time in the good ol' US of A this month. We've had yet another mass shooting, There's plans for another draconian copyright regulation system, The economy still isn't perfect, We're still having racism fueled white cops beating non Caucasian citizens with impunity, We've had a close vote for progressivism for civil rights in terms of gay marriage, yet not everyone's happy with it, we're going through another ellection in just over a year, yet non of the canidates wowed me, and Nintendo had their first real crappy press conference since at least 2008. In light of how heavy current events have become thanks to our country slowly becoming a S**thole, how about we talk about all the other things that happened this month...

Gaming Bits: E3 2015 Special

Well, here it is, the gaming event to end all gaming events. A place where big boobies and even bigger games meet. A place where you could see all the big games before they even get released. Trailers, Gameplay, Celebrities, Booth Babes in Square Enix Crop Tops, and I wasn't there, I'm broke, and not a big name internet personality. I tried as much as I could to follow the big news, but, I got some of it better than others, So in this VERY SPECIAL Gaming Bits Segment, We tackle E3, What I liked, and what I didn't like...

Kinnikuman Retrospective: 20th Chojin Olympics Arc: Part 1

56k Beware and Spoilers Ahead


I think it was safe to say before (and for a lot of) 70s, The tournament arc in shonen fight manga was relatively non existent, but it was extremely prevalent in Sports manga like Hoshi no Kyojin. Sure there was fighting in manga like Ashita no Joe and Tiger Mask, but those were more sports than fighting. You could say the same for Kinnikuman, but as the series goes on, it gets more and more surreal. It becomes less and less about normal Pro Wrestling. But where did the Wrestling angle come from? Short answer the Author's (Yudetamago) passion for Wrestling. Long answer, no one, at least outside of japan, knows for sure... If anyone has any translations of the author's interview pages (you know the ones that come with every manga or even american comic book ever made), please tell me so I can confirm any info. Back to the trournament arc, Shonen fight anime like the obsure but influencial Otoko Ippiki Gaki Daisho were largely episodic, heck Tiger Mask, despite being about an overarching tournament, was largely a fight of the week series. But things would later change when japan and many other western nations decided to boycott the Moscow Olympics...

Gaming Bits: What if Metroid 64 was made?

Metroid, a video game franchise that broke all limits on each Nintendo System it was on, for a while, it was one of Nintendo's Big 3, with Mario and Zelda, however, as the years went on, it slowly became less and less relevant, with Pokemon taking it's spot on the Big 3, and was more known for being a Smash Bros fighter. Heck it even skipped the early 3D days of the N64 for the Gamecube in Prime (which is arguably one of the best Metroid games of all time, if not the best Gamecube game of all time), but in 2010, Yoshio Sakamoto revealed that if he could, he and his team would've developed a game for the N64 with the Metroid name on it... But they didn't have ideas on how it'd work, so today on Gaming Bits, we'll discuss possible ideas for Metroid 64 if it came to be...

Geek Grub #1: Mountain Dew Dewshine

I wasn't planning to make this a series, but I've got 2 geek food related post up this year and am out of ideas for other blogs (not to mention I've got a busy week ahead, so I don't know how closely I'll follow E3), so here's a filler post to keep me and you occupied...

Mighty Morphin' Saint Seiya Turtle Rangers! Mutant Turtles: Superman Legend review

Last week, I talked about Beast Wars, My favorite interpretation of transformers. this week I'll be talking about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, A franchise I never particularly cared for...



Growing up, I was never a big TMNT fan, I watched the show and movies from time to time in my 20 years of existence, but I was never what you'd call a fan. Never watched the show religiously, Never collected the merchandise or toys, I personally feel like the Power Rangers and Pokemon made a bigger to me. There is one legendarily WTF piece of Turtles history that always intrigued me, No not the concert, any of the movies, or even the Next Mutation (which I have to talk about sometime), I'm talking about the Legendary presumed to be lost for years anime, Mutant Turtles: Superman Legend...

Beast Wars: A More Mature Take of Transformers

One of the big problems of the transformers movies is that they're pandering, 1 dimensional schlock. Sure the 80s show was just as much so, but it was a product of it's time, and it was decent pulp sci-fi at the time. Still, all boys franchises from the 80s had to evolve to feed a new generation of kids, and not every franchise had a successful transition to the 90s, Thundercats was abandoned only to be remembered by 90s kids as one of the Founding Toonami Shows, He-Man had an unsuccessful sequel leaving the franchise to never to return again until the new millenium, GI Joe (the granddaddy of all action figures) was always on and off as far as popularity since the 1960s, and most boys toylines (old or new) from the 90s were overshadowed thanks to Power Rangers and Pokemon eclipsing their stars. Transformers was not one of those franchises, in fact, it made a CGI TV show that was just as good, if not better than most of the best G1 had to offer...

Kinnikuman Retrospective: The Kaiju Fighting Days

56k Beware and Spoilers Ahead


There isn't that much info on how Kinnikumnan came to be, but I think one day at a Japanese school, school, Yoshinori Nakai showed his best friend a sketch of a goofy looking Ultraseven and Takashi Shiamda was impressed, They were interested in becoming a mangaka duo, they were looking for a name and noticed one of their farts at a picnic smelled like a boiled egg. They decided to call themselves Yudetamago, after the Japanese word for said food. They submitted manga like Gong no Desu, a wrestling manga which would later for shadow what the series would become, and Mammoth to their favorite Magazine, Weekly Shonen Jump. While never being picked up for full series, Kinnikuman was picked up for 2 one shots, and later a full manga. This would later become a goofy Ultraman parody called Kinnikuman.

Anonymous Yoshi News Desk: Random Rubbish Roundup All Grown Up...

ATATATATA!!!!!! 2-HIT COMBO!!!!!!





So I'm trying to make this a monthly thing, or in other words, trying to make R.Cubed a regular thing with a different format. This episode will be on all the geek news that happened between January and April of this year, with updated info for this month, and next episode will be on this month as a whole. This segment will cover all things from Movies, TV, Video Games, Anime, Manga, Tokusatsu, Comic Books maybe, Technology sometimes, and of course, events on the internet. I won't delve into politics or social issues that much, but I may have to... So let's start with...



Gaming Bits: The MSX

In the early 1980s, Microsoft Japan was working on a universal standard for Japanese computers. You see Japan for the longest time had proprietary PC Standards, Like the NEC's PC-88/PC-98 series, Sharp's X68000, and Fujitsu's FM Towns, but that's an post or two on it's own. Kazuhiku Nishi commissioned the MSX standard to Microsoft, But what came of it? What's the rest of it's history? What made it a liable gaming platform? What impact did it have today? Well...

The Most Bishounen Mecha EVER!!!!!! Ambassador Magma 1993 OVA Review

Before we begin, let's start with a Japanese lesson...


  • Bishounen: A pretty or ladylike male in an anime.
  • Mecha: Giant Robots.
  • OVA: Original Video Animation: Essentially a Direct to Video anime.



And we continue with a history lesson:

In the 1980s and a part of the 90s, The anime industry hit a gold mine of cheap, rentable anime known as OVA's. They were for the most part unbelievable pieces of crap. Most of these are nostalgic curiosities at best. However, some of these were in the so bad it's good range, Like my favorite example from that era, The 12 episode Guyver OVA, but this ain't a Guyver blog, this is another example from that same era. Keep in mind, if it was an OVA from the 80s/90s, it was an automatic death sentence, so this is going to be a good one, and it was a series that US Renditions (AKA a purveyor of badly dubbed anime in the 90s along with Manga and Early US Manga Corps) dubbed back the day. Today's subject is Ambassador Magma...

The Age of Shonen Weeklies...


Manga is one of Japan's oldest art forms, it goes back as early as the 18th century, at least... But one genre attracts young boys, teenagers, and salarymen alike. That is the Shonen anime. It has elements like Martial Arts, Mecha, sports, horror, Sci-fi, and epic overly drawn out stories and arcs that go on for years on end. but It's beginnings are interesting, so let's go to the Age of Shonen Weeklies...

Gaming Bits: What is it about Princess Peach? (SERIES PREMIERE)



For almost 45 years, gaming has played a pivotal role in our lives, it helped people, it hurt people, it made people feel all kinds of things, This series will be talking about gaming history, gaming nostalgia, gaming series, gaming systems, Gaming Companies, games in general, and everything in between. I'l be talking about some of the systems of the late 90s/very early 2000s (Windows 9x and it's games, the Dreamcast, The N64 (REVISITED), Playstation 1, and maybe the handhelds of that era (Game Boy Color (REVISITED), Neo Geo Pocket Color, and the Japan only Wonderswan (Color))), I'll be talking some systems not many people know about (PC Engine/TurboGrafx, MSX/MSX2 Computer Systems, and the Japanese computers that birthed many franchises, ports, and little known companies like Nihon Falcom and Game Arts), I'll be talking about games from all eras and systems (like Pokemon for it's 20th anniversary in a year), I'll be talking about Companies that are interesting in one way or another, and most of all I'll be talking about anything and everything gaming.


BUT WHEN DOES IT COME OUT?

I'm looking to a release sometime in May or June, if nothing else september, remember, Summer has lot's of movies coming out and the kinnikuman retrospective. but Look for ward to this series, on my blog, and Screwattack...

My quick thoughts on Avengers: Age of Ultron...

The Avengers was probably the best super hero film of the decade so far and also one of the best movies in recent memory. It left some pretty big shoes to fill, the closest any superhero film came, let alone any Marvel movie came for me was Captain America: The Winter Soldier, However does the most recent Avengers movie even come close or even surpass Captain America 2? Short answer, it kind of leaves a big gap in those shoes in the front. You know, where the toes should be...

My quick thoughts on GARO: The Animation...

This is the time where I should be reviewing GARO: The One Who Shines in the Darkness, But I'm still stuck at the end of Makai Senki as far as GARO Chronology. But I needed an anime to watch and this one looked particularly good. What did I think of it? Find out today...

Geek Grub #0.2: My views on the Taco Bell Exclusive Mountain DewFlavors...

ATATATATA!!!!!! 2-HIT COMBO!!!!!!

It's no secret that I love Mountain Dew, love it to death. I tried nearly every flavor that was available in America from late 2011 to now, except for the game fuel lemonade, 2 of the Kickstart flavors, and other premium varieties. I tried Baja Blast for the first time at Taco Bell at a time I don't really remember, I don't remember if I was in MarzGurl's Fandom at the time of first taste or not, but it is one if her favorite flavors., So when I heard that they were going to release Baja Blast in bottles and cans (both times), I got excited!!!! I had Sangrita Blast for the first time the other day, And my thoughts on both flavors are...



Nintendo Double Diamond Anniversary Retrospective Part 8: Nintendo, Now and Forever (Strong Opinions Ahead + 56k Warning) (SERIES FINALE)

Well here it is, The Big Finale to this fairly ambitious project, And it may not be as fun as the last 7...



Let me finish whydoncha... It won't be as fun as the last 7 for the second half, but the first half will be all info. It probably won't be as exciting as the last 7 with a downward slope as history gets more and more recent, but I'll be discussing The Build up to this generation, a few of the games (considering that's the whole worthwhile library of the Wii U... oops. What? A long time Nintendo fan can't pick fun at The Wii U struggling), and what caused them to fall on their face. No turning back, It's the big end...

My Quick Second Thoughts on Power Rangers: Dino Charge (so far)...

Why have a good cable package to watch your favorite show when you can Stream it for free or download a torrent? Dino Charge is aware of this and tries to be nothing more than what it is, and what it is is a vast improvement over series like Super Megaforce, basically it's relatively simple and non gimmicky. The only gimmicks are the toys it markets, at least until they announce the Dino Charge VS MMPR special.

Geek Grub #0.1: BK #ChickenFries thoughts...

Were you expecting a blog on something else? Perhaps something related to the biggest ripoff $90,000 can buy? Well here's a food review...



So I had Burger King's chicken fries today, and they're pretty damn good. Let me explain my history with BK... Once upon a time, I really liked Burger King. Mainly for their Pokemon toys, and their food was pretty good too. Chicken tenders that change to fit certain promotions, the best fries in the business, and it was all flushed down the stinker in 2011. They keep changing the recipe to their fries, their chicken tenders in fact I was just visiting their grave for the old Burger King just the other day.


Then just earlier this year I found out about their chicken strips, which were gone a month after I found about them. Just a month later (I think), I learned that they brought back the chicken fries. I had them today and here's my thoughts...


They remind me of the old chicken tenders they used to have. That can be a good or bad thing depending on how you look at it, but it feels kind of nostalgic for me, even if I didn't eat them when they were new, back in 2005. These also are quite spicy, which gives it more of a kick. These are nowhere as addictive as KFC's popcorn nuggets (please don't get rid of them), but it's more like their old chicken tenders mixed with their chicken strips. One last thing I want to comment on is their shape. I can see girls trying to eat it like the Yoshiette does...

*scene missing, but you kind of get the idea*

Overall, while it probably won't make me a Burger King regular again, I give this a thumbs up.

Indulge yourselves...

Nintendo Double Diamond Anniversary Retrospective Part 7: The Motion of Resurrection (56k Warning)

I think right now it's safe to say the 7th generation of Video game consoles is pretty much over, with ports of 8th generation games tanking , lack of exclusives anymore, and more and more developers jumping ship to the new consoles. Nintendo knew they had to be done asap since the big three (including them) were up to bigger and better things, and the last thing hey needed was a console that was barely more graphically capable than the original XBOX. But even with a huge burden on their back, they struck back with the powerhouse of the first few years of the seventh generation...

Sailor Moon R Report Card

Did we all enjoy that lost hour of sleep a few nights ago? Neither did I... Considering that the 3 biggest holidays on March 2015 are happening in the same 5 day span and I can't dedicate blogs to everything, Let's consider today Happy St. Patick's Ultimate Pi Friday the 13th Day. 3 Guesses why It's the Ultimate Pi Day? So onto the topic of today... Sailor Moon Classic was definitely flawed, but it was by no means bad. Many people don't like the R season due to introducing Chibiusa, Yeah we'll be getting to her, and having a weird plot. What do I think of this season? Find out today...

Cool Crap You Should See Right Now Go! #2: Power/Rangers

You know, there's been a boom of Power Rangers fan films these past couple of years, so much so that Saban Brands thinks they an outdo them with their MMPR Reboot film coming out next year. Some of the results are pretty darn good. This is no exception, yes I'll be talking about the takedowns...

Nintendo Double Diamond Anniversary Retrospective Part 6: The Dark Age (Again, and 56k Warning)

Before we begin, let's talk about some Nintendo News that happened lately...


First off, Nintnedo's Creator Program or whatever it is is essentially a joke... Basically put, if you still want to make a living off of Nintendo games, you either A) have to give 30% of your paycheck to the big N, only produce videos on games on the list (and no, that doesn't include Pokemon, Smash, or others...), and not include other copyrighted clips, or B) Put some of your videos on review (which could take a damn long time because Nintendo), give 40% of your money to your employer, and it's the same basic details. If other companies follow suit, it'll lead to a snowball effect leading to creator programs that screw over their employers and we'll probably have a de facto SOPA for online videos unless you get permission from your employer, and lets plays and reviews will never be the same again.

On a more positive note, we'll be getting a live action Netflix Exclusive Zelda series, which'll be a more family friendly Game of Thrones. I'm really cautious, I'd like to see how this turns out. That's all i got considering they just announced this at the time of me writing this.


Now back to your regularly scheduled programming...

Movie Bowl I: Ghostbusters Reboot VS Power Rangers Reboot feat. Nintendo New 3DS

The Nintendo New 3DS XL comes out in the US in just a couple weeks, and it couldn't be any more FUBAR if it tried. I was going to get it when there was more reason to buy it (more Games that use the systems capabilities, Maybe a price drop, the works), but Nintendo has turned the system into a broken system where everything that could have went wrong with it has. But what exactly went wrong with it?

TO INFINITY AND BEYOND!!!!!!!!! Toy Story Tribute (AKA My 200th Blog Spectacular!!!!!)

Well, here it is, the blog I've been building up to since at least November... Blog two-zero-zero!!!!! I'm not going to do the who would've thought thing since knowing your luck, a little magic, and under the right amount of sunlight, you could have made it to such a milestone too. My topic Today needs no introduction, but what you may not know is how it came to be, How good it really is, and what it meant to me (then and now), so this review/tribute will be separated into 3 parts. so let's begin with...

Nintendo Double Diamond Anniversary Retrospective... Part 5: The Slow DISC-truction of the Mighty Castle... (56k WARNING)

Here it is... the big one, My favorite era of video games and Nintendo. The PS1-N64-Saturn era. What is it about this era that makes it so memorable? Is it the introduction of video games for a lot of people to Video Games (including myself)? Is it the high quality Games that were released in that era (Mario 64, Zelda: Ocarina, Final Fantasy VII, Metal Gear Solid, etc.)? Is it the introduction to 3D graphics? Or is it Possibly the introduction of more complex, more intelectually challenging, more mature games? A lot of 90s babies remember the N64 pretty well, but there's more to this era than meets the eye...

Sailor Moon Classic VS Sailor Moon Crystal Arc 1

Before we begin, let's talk about some things that happened within the last month (since I don't ahve the energy to do another R.Cubed)...


First off (most relevant things first), WHAT HAS CHANNEL AWESOME/THAT GUY WITH THE GLASSES BECOME?!?! I knew the site was on life support since 2012, maybe 2011, but the site is truly dying right now. I don't have the energy to talk about this in great detail, but let me put it this way, Channel awesome has no respect for their "employees", they let 5 producers and counting off the site, and it's just a matter of time before guys like Lewis and Kaylyn leave, by then the final death nail of Channel Awesome will be set (for me, anyway). This drama is worse than any other TGWTG/CA/Reviewverse Drama that has happened before. This is so fascinating, but It kind of destroyed my morale (even though I seem to be doing better)... Can we all just go back to 2010/2011/Early 2012? Bottom line, In within the next couple of years, Channel Awesome is going seize to Exist...


Secondly, New 3DS, only coming out in XL in America, yeah, I guess we don't need options in this modern age... OH WAIT, WE DO!!!!!! I need to recharge my batteries before I even talk about the New 3DS in greater Detail.


Lastly in this R.Cubed mini, Spidermania, First Spiderman's going to be Infinity War!!!!! Or maybe not, I've been hearing conflicting sources, only time will tell. Next Japanese Spiderman's in a US comic and we might get to watch the Whole Toei TV series again soon, So yeah... MY REVIEW OF JAPANESE SPIDERMAN IS  BACK IN PRODUCTION BABY!!!!!!!!


Saturday, January 17, 2015

My quick thoughts on the Space Sheriff NEXT GENERATION Movies...

Welp, here it is, yet another attempt to revive the Metal Hero series. I'll admit, The Space Sheiff Gavan movie wasn't great, but it was a good hour and a half distraction, and I haven't seen Kikaider REBOOT, but I've kind of heard mixed feelings about it. This is a sequel to the Gavan movie, so how does this hold up? Does it have a future?

My top 5 favorite Shonen Mangas/Animes...

Shonen is arguably the most popular genre of Anime/Manga in Japan (and possibly of all the world), There's many different genres that go with Shonen Manga, From fighting, to sports, to gag animes/mangas. It's my favorite Genre, at least from the 1980s-ish? to the 1990s, and maybe part of the 2000s. I decided to do this little list to show you some of my favorites. What counts as a Shonen manga? That's hard to describe, because There's so much Genres, levels of violence, and types of humor (which is also part of the genre), the way I see it is two requirements:

  1. Too simple to be aimed at older audiences (Seinen), yet too complex for young children (Kodomo). It's generally aimed at Older Kids, Tweens, and high school aged kids.
  2. And a Person (age, gender, and race don't usually matter) completing a certain goal (whether it'd be be the best in a certain field of their life (fighting in tournaments, sports, etc)), or to get through day to day life with hilarious and surreal scenarios.

With that out of the way, (In order to 5th favorite to Most Favorite) Here are some of my favorites...

Debate and discussion are welcome, just keep it civil, in fact, I'd love to hear your favorites...

I QUIT!!!!!! (The future of this blog)

Can we all talk, man to man? I've been doing this gig for over 3 years now, with almost 200 posts, and just a few months ago, I came to the realization that I need to go outside, play, get a real hobby, get laid, and stop fawning lusting over Kaylyn since she's married, and my relationship with her and me trying to repair it really 1) brought out my worst instincts and 2) caused me to hurt people in the process. I also really got to stop the blog thing because It grew my ego for such a nobody, and caused me to hurt people as well (maybe even Kay-chan). So goodbye my friends...
