Sword Art Online will be “Political Correct” in the future

To all Sword Art Online fans, get ready for major changes for the story of SAO. From the source of ANN, Sword Art Online creator Reki Kawahara is planning to “correct” the roles of the characters in Sword Art Online. During a interview with Dengeki Online with some other creators, he made a comment that the girls he created in the series should have an active role. In his interview, he says he wants to make Sword Art Online “political correct” by making the girls more than just side characters and making them part of the story. He also agrees that gender neutral words should be more used. For example, instead of saying hero or heroine, he wants thinks protagonist and antagonist is better. Also according ComicBook.com, Kawahara mentioned that will most likely won’t be using women as “trophies” in the story. Meaning, he won’t be using explicit moments like attempted rape or other sexual assaults for the story in the future. So moments like Asuna’s attempted rape in the first season of SAO (second to last episode) and SAO: Alicization episode 10 won’t be acceptable for plot device.  In regards to the protagonist topic, he noticed how yuri manga has both girls as protagonists and helping each other; in a way, he wants the idea of motivation for SAO. He also added that this means it won’t downgrade Kirito.

[January 2019 OWLS Blog Tour] One Piece – Luffy’s Painful Metaphosis Journey

Metamorphosis

We will analyze these characters’ transformations and how these transformations benefited or minimized these characters’ potential in becoming “great people/beings.” We will also use these characters as a way for us to reflect on our own lives and who we want to become. Lastly, we would like to say “Happy New Year, everyone!”

Real Neat Blog Award by Rocco

I want to thank Rocco from Secluded Observation for nominating me for the Real Neat Blog Award. Let’s get started on this award!

The rules of the award

  • Display the logo
  • Thank the blogger for the award
  • Answer the questions the one who has nominated you
  • Nominate 7-10 bloggers
  • Ask them 7 questions

7 Questions:

  • What helps you remain passionate about blogging?

The reason why I still like blogging is because it helps me share my voice and be expressive. If you met me in person, I am mostly collective and not very good at speaking what’s on my mind. However, whenever I get the chance to voice my opinions and show off my fun side, I want to write and show people that I am here and please listen. I like sharing my interests with others.

  • What is something you know now about blogging that you wished you knew when you began?

I wish I knew a bit earlier when started blogging the importance of writing and how can blogging can be a career. Back then, I treated this just a hobby and not having any goals. I was pretty hesitant on making this like a business.

  • If you could meet your favourite voice actor/actress who would it be?

I would like to meet two voice actors. I would love to meet Erika Harlacher. Erika does the voice for Kurapika in Hunter x Hunter and Violet from Violet Evergarden. I would love to geek out with her and talk about Kingdom Hearts. Another voice actor I would want to meet is Vic Mignogna. Vic is the voice of Broly in Dragon Ball, Edward Elric in Fullmetal Alchemist and Qrow in RWBY. This guy’s voice is legendary.

  • Would you like to get in to the animation/entertainment/videogame industry?. If so, is Shirobako or new game an inspiration for you to do so?. If not, then why did you decide to go in to said industry?

If possible, I would join one and be part of the blogging community. I would love to handle the blogs and keeping up with social media for the anime industry. I want to be able to respond and give fans information.

  • If you weren’t blogging, would you try something like a podcast or youtube?

I would probably do some YouTube on gaming. I probably won’t be livestreaming, but I would love to show off random video game gameplay of myself playing games.

  • If your favourite videogame/anime character came to life, how would you spend your time with them?

I would want Shinichi from the anime Outbreak Company to come to life. We would spend the day watching the anime and having debates on who is the best girl on any series.

  • What two anime/videogame world would you live in?

In video games, I want to go to the Chao Garden in the Sonic Adventure games. I want to go to a special place where chaos live peacefully and I can raise them.

Another world I want to go is Twilight Town from Kingdom Hearts. I want to eat sea-salt ice-cream on top of the clock tower.

As an added bonus, I want to live in the world of Dragon Ball, but I to experience Dragon Ball like the manga Dragon Ball: That Time I Reincarnated as Yamcha. Without spoiling the story, the story is about a student who accidentally dies and gets resurrected as Dragon Ball’s joke character Yamcha. Using his knowledge about Dragon Ball, the student decides to make Yamcha the strongest warrior in the series. If I was in Dragon Ball, I would like to become a character and make them stronger than a Saiyan.

Choose your starter! Kingdom Hearts III showcases pre-order keyblades

Kingdom Hearts III is getting close and we are less than 2 weeks away from the official release. With the game coming out, get ready to determine where to pre-order the game. Depending where you pre-order, players will be given some exclusive DLC weapons to help players start off the adventure.

If you pre-order any of Kingdom Hearts III for PS4 or Xbox One from Amazon, players will be given the Dawn to Dusk keyblade. The Dawn to Dusk keyblade is a keyblade that increase the fire magic powers and will instantly give players the Firagan situation command.

If you own a PS4 and you plan to pre-order through the Playstation Store, you can get your hands on this blue keyblade called the Midnight Blue. Almost like Dawn to Dusk, this has some powerful magic attacks that is specifically made for blizzard attacks and even triggers the command attack Blizzagan.

Xbox users who pre-orders this game through their store will be given the Phantom Green keyblade. Just like the previous two, this one is focused on thunder based attacks and can perform the Thundagan.

Friday Funny 195: Saiyan Reborn

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome to this meme-filled Friday. I hope everyone is healthy and not sick from this winter cold. You might be wondering, why am I doing an episode based on the upcoming movie Dragon Ball Super: Broly. Reason being is because the movie is coming out this Wednesday on January 16th only. As a way to bring hype this movie, I decided to celebrate early and fill this post with Dragon Ball memes. Dragon Ball Super: Broly is a movie that takes after the events of Super and the movie reintroduce the fan favorite antagonist Broly. Akira Toriyama is involved with this movie and that means, Broly is finally canon and part of the Dragon Ball world. Also becoming canon is the fusion warrior Gogeta; Gogeta is a fusion name when Goku and Vegeta perform the fusion dance. In this version of Gogeta, the Saiyan can transform into Super Saiyan Blue just like Vegito. Broly first made an appearance in a non-canon movie called Dragon Ball Z: Broly – The Legendary Super Saiyan in which made it’s debut in Japan in 1993 but Funimation dubbed it on 2003. Gogeta made his appearance in the movie Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn and it’s debut was in 1995 and later dubbed in 2006. Overall, these characters started off as non-canon, but thanks to Toriyama being involved with them now, these characters are legit part of the universe. Are you going to see this movie? Are you going to binge watch the three Broly movies before you see this one? Besides this Dragon Ball movie, we got some exciting anime news. The comedic anime KonoSuba is finally getting an English Dub and it will have multiple languages for viewers who uses Crunchyroll. The anime Mob Psycho 100 is back for a season 2 and once again, fans are happy to see this funny series.

Also as a side note, last week on January 4th, it was the anniversary to the Cartoon Network cartoon Ed, Edd’n Eddy. When is this series ever going to get a Blu-Ray release?! I love this cartoon!

ow that I shared some anime news, let’s kick start this weekend together!

 

Hear are some Broly videos to help you get ready for Humpday/Wednesday!

Here are some movie clips and music from the DBZ movies you might like:

Here is for grins and giggles:

Have an awesome weekend!
