Detective Pikachu movie experience

I love this gif.

It’s not going to be a review, but more like an experience I want to share. It’s going to be a short post.

Going to the movies is my favorite hobby especially since I live near my local theaters. On Wednesday last week, I went to see the movie Detective Pikachu by myself. The movie theaters gave an exclusive Pokemon trading card pack which has two cards. Surprisingly, when I went to find a seat, there was nobody here. In a weird way, I thought it was cool. I felt like I owned this entire place to myself. I truly felt like I was a king like T’challa in Black Panther. All hail the king. The cards I got was a Pikachu card and a Jigglypuff card. The movie itself was actually pretty good. I like Ryan Reynolds voice of Pikachu and seeing Pikachu in live action is so cute. I wish I could hug him but then I might end up getting electrocuted. I would recommend this movie to anyone who still loves Pokemon. This movie gave me vibes and flashbacks from Pokemon: The First Movie.

Having the whole room to myself was an awesome experience in my opinion. Have you ever had the whole place to yourself?

Watch out Allison, you are not the only one who can give me a Pop figure as a gift. Even though it was passed my birthday, my friend Ezra got me a gift two weeks ago. He knows I collect these Pops and got me a character from a series I really love. I got Frieza (Final Form). This is the 31st figure of my collection. Thank you Ezra and God bless you brother. This is the third Dragon Ball character I have in my collection and they are from different series. I have Kid Goku from the classic Dragon Ball, Frieza from Dragon Ball Z and I have Super Saiyan Trunks from Dragon Ball Super.

31. Frieza (Final Form) from Dragon Ball Z.

Happy 30th Anniversary Dragon Ball Z – My top 5 characters I wish to see canon in Dragon Ball

See the source image

Remember the news that Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama was involve with making the movie Dragon Ball Super: Broly? Because of his involvement, fans rejoiced and saw that after all these years, the antagonist Broly was going to be canon and be part of the Dragon Ball universe. Not only him, but we also get see characters like Bardock, Gogeta and even Goku’s mother Gine as canon; Gine first made her appearance in the manga Jaco: The Galactic Patrolman manga in a special chapter called Dragon Ball Minus. This is could be good or bad news since this means that Toriyama retconned the story. Meaning, we don’t see Bardock’s old friends from the movie Bardock: The Father of Goku or we don’t see his Super Saiyan transformation Episode of Bardock. Regardless of the changes, fans was still happy to see these characters canon and part of the main story. Just like I mentioned before with Bardock, this also means that Toriyama changed Broly. In the DBZ movies, Toriyama did designed Broly but he wasn’t part of the past movies and Broly was just another noncanon villain in the DBZ movies like Cooler or Lord Slug. Broly made more appearances in three movies due to popularity and seeing him come back as canon, he is involved with the main story. Now here is the main topic of this post: What if Toriyama said today that he wanted to do another Dragon Ball movie and bring back and character that was originally noncanon? What if Dragon Ball Super comes back and he wants to reintroduce a character he designed and be in the Dragon Ball Super? I have five characters in my mind that I would love to see return. These characters are from the past DBZ movies and filler arcs of Z. This is also a tribute to the 30 years of the Dragon Ball Z anime! Happy Anniversary Dragon Ball Z and thank you for the characters and story!

*Warning: Spoilers!

5. Pikkon (Dragon Ball Z)

See the source image

Remember that epic fight with Goku and Hit in Dragon Ball Super where Goku used Kaioken and Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan together? Before that happened, Dragon Ball veterans saw something similar in the classic Dragon Ball Z anime. In Dragon Ball Z, this anime did have filler that was not part of the original manga. Taking place after the events of the Cell Games, Goku is dead and rather than training with King Kai, he decides to part in tournament where all the Kais come together and pit their strongest warriors and see who is the strongest, in thus this leads to the Other World Tournament episodes.  In this filler, Goku and Pikkon are faced against each other and both are equally matched. Despite Pikkon being stronger than Frieza and even Cell, Goku has an ace up his sleeve. He transform into Super Saiyan and mixed his attacks with Kaioken for a boost.

What I am trying to say is that even though Pikkon is not noncanon, I did like him and I really like the friendship with him and Goku. I am also impressed how strong he is. It was mentioned in Bio Broly that when Broly died, King Kai wanted Goku and Pikkon stop Broly rampaging in the Other World. If Pikkon ever comes back, I would love to see him Super where Goku could team up with Goku and fight with dead warriors for training.

4. Tapion (Dragon Ball Z: Wrath of the Dragons)

See the source image

He didn’t show up in the filler episodes but he appeared in the noncanon Z movies. Tapion is a new character introduced in the movie Dragon Ball Z: Wrath of the Dragon,. He is a mysterious hero who is on a quest to prevent the powerful monster Hirudegarn from destroying the world. I pick him because I like friendship between Kid Trunks and him. In the movie, Trunks becomes interested in him and sees that looks like a very cool hero and Tapion soon begins to like him since he reminds him of his younger brother who helped prevented the rampaging monster from rampage years ago. In the end of the movie, the monster slain and as Tapion returns him home, he gives powerful sword to Trunks. In the credits, we see Trunks wielding a sword and slaying Frieza after the events in Namek. I would love to see Toriyama bring back Trunks again and go over the details on how did he get the sword. I could possible see him referred or at least explained in a movie focusing only on Trunks.

3. Bojack (Dragon Ball Z: Bojack Unbound)

See the source image

Remember this muscled green giant? Dragon Ball Z: Bojack Unbound introduced Bojack and his minions and we got see how scary they are. It is mentioned by King Kai that all four Kais sealed Bojack and his servants because they were evil and they had too power to be stopped in the galaxy; however, after King Kai died from Cell because of Goku, the seal is broken Bojack and his crew escapes and decides to have fun by attacking Earth. With Goku out of the picture, it’s up to Gohan and the Z-Warriors to stop him. If Bojack ever comes back, I would love to see him in the sequel/Dragon Ball Super anime. In the manga, DBS is still going and Goku and Vegeta are faced against a powerful energy stealing foe called Moro and the only one who can match against him is Majin Buu. What if while Goku and Vegeta are away, what if there is new threat and Gohan is Earth’s last resort. It was mentioned a while back that Toriyama planned to have Gohan to be the main protagonist in Dragon Ball Z when it first started, but then he became a side character since fans loved Goku more than Gohan. I would love to see Gohan in action and show fans that he still the same kid who once saved the world from Cell. He did come back strong in Dragon Ball Super in the last arc, but I would like to see him fight in a battle of life and death in the same way in Android Saga.

2. Slug (Dragon Ball Z: Lord Slug)

See the source image

Goku can’t catch a break with evil Namekians. In Dragon Ball Z: Lord Slug, Goku and his friends must stop the evil Namekian Lord Slug from freezing the planet. In a similar way like Evil King Piccolo in the Dragon Ball classic anime, Goku is faced against a young Lord Slug in his prime and just like King Piccolo, he is evil to the core and will do what it takes to kill anyone stopping his goals. Goku barely made it out alive when he almost tapped into a Super Saiyan form and Gohan using his whistling skills to weaken Slug. Just like my point with Gohan and Bojack, what if the earth needed Piccolo’s protection. I could see an arc in Dragon Ball Super where Piccolo teams up with Gohan and fight against Slug. Not only Piccolo would get the spotlight, but I would love to see the teacher-student relationship with Gohan and Piccolo.

1. Cooler (Dragon Ball Z: Cooler’s Revenge)

See the source image

Just like Broly, Cooler is another movie character that gets a lot of popularity from Dragon Ball Z fans. Cooler made his appearance in the movie Dragon Ball Z: Cooler’s Revenge and then came back again as a metal version called Metal Cooler in Dragon Ball Z: The Return of Cooler. Cooler is the older brother of Frieza and just like him, he is heartless. He comes to Earth to find the one who killed his brother and he is not doing this to avenge him, he wants to kill to honor the family and his own pride. It’s mentioned in the movie that he was already planning to kill Frieza to shut him up. Cooler will go beyond and even try to kill Goku’s friends in order to see him go mad. Cooler has gotten a lot attention even in the video games that he was added in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3 in the PS2 and he came back in the Dragon Ball Heroes anime spinoff where he learned how to transform into Golden Cooler. He is also a DLC character in FighterZ along with Broly and Bardock. In Dragon Ball Super, he doesn’t show up at all and the only Frieza-like character we got was Frost in Universe 6. I would love to see story focusing on Frieza and his race. We could learn about his relationship with his brother and his father King Cold.

That’s my top 5 characters I want to see canon in Toriyama’s movies and Dragon Ball Super. What about you guys? Do you have any characters that you want to be canon? Comment down below.

Pirate Crew Tag Episode 2

my pirate crew tag

Talk about getting nominated for the same tag post again. I want to thank Keiko from Keiko’s Anime Blog for nominating me for this Pirate Crew Tag post. This is the second tag post I got nominated, but I really like these tagged posts. If you have time, check out my first Pirate Crew post. Here is the rules:

  • Display the My Pirate Crew logo and add ‘My Pirate Crew’ as a tag.
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and post a link to their blog.
  • Link back to the original post here (so I can compare your crews to mine).
  • Select seven anime characters and give them a position on the crew. These are the positions you can to fill. Warrior, sniper, chef, doctor, scientist, navigator, strategist, mechanic, entertainer.
  • Nominate 5-10 bloggers.
  • Set sail and rule the seas!

Chef: Brock

See the source image

I need someone can make jelly filled donuts. Brock from Pokemon is an excellent character who has experience on taking of Pokemon and even his siblings. He is almost like Sanji from One Piece because he is easily attracted to women except for Jessie of Team Rocket.

Sniper: Vash

See the source image

I am barely getting into this series, but I pick Vash the Stampede from Trigun. For a goofball, Vash is able to use a gun and never miss his target. Looks can be deceiving.

Strategist: L

See the source image

He’s a kind of guy to take risks, but he usually wins. L will be the crew’s strategist. He able to pinpoint every clue and navigate through a tough situation. He can play the enemy as if it’s a big chess game.

Mechanic: Kisuke Urahara

See the source image

He may look like a charmer, but don’t let the hat and cane fool you. Kisuke was a former Soul Reaper Captain who has an incredible Bankai and blade attacks. He is well known in the anime for selling Soul Reaper gadets he made for Ichigo when he wanted to focus on slaying Hollows and have a normal life at school. He even made a gadget for Kon so he can be the superhero Karakurizer!

Scientist: Orochimaru

See the source image

He’s creepy, but his experiments can be useful. He is infamous for trying to do forbidden acts for power. He is able to give power to his servants by giving them the curse marks and he can steal the first Hokage’s genes and plant it on someone so they can use wood jutsu. In addition, he was able to make Danzo an arm filled with Sharingan eyes. If his science doesn’t scare you, I am sure his snake like face will.

Doctor: Krillin

See the source image

You know I had to do it to em. Krillin from Dragon Ball would make an excellent doctor because he always there to carry Senzu Beans. Senzu Beans are special magical beans that can heal any remedy. If you get serious hurt and need a pain reliever, just ask for a Senzu Bean.

Navigator: Joseph Joestar

See the source image

As long we’re not flying any airplanes, I trust Joseph with my life and journey. Joseph is a guy who knows how to travel regardless of conditions. As long he knows someone from the Speedwagon Foundation, he can provide service for our travels. He even knows how to ride camels in the desert even though he said he fell asleep many times watching Lawrence of Arabia and it’s not easy taming a camel.

These are my seven crew members. These are the people I nominate:

Merlin

Lynn

Karandi

Solitaire

Moyatori

Have a nice day!

Pirate Crew Blog Tag

I want to thank Melinanimeland for tagging me for this Pirate Crew Blog Tag. This is a tag post I find pretty interesting. I like pirates as much as I like ninjas and knights. Before I begin, let me share you the rules of this tag post. It’s pretty self-explanatory. I choose seven anime characters and give them their roles for my crew. Once I am satisfied, I can set sail. After that, I get to choose

Rules:

  • Display the My Pirate Crew logo and add ‘My Pirate Crew’ as a tag.
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and post a link to their blog.
  • Link back to the original post here(so I can compare your crews to mine).
  • Select seven anime characters and give them a position on the crew. These are the positions you can to fill. Warrior, sniper, chef, doctor, scientist, navigator, strategist, mechanic, entertainer.
  • Nominate 5-10 bloggers.
  • Set sail and rule the seas!

To make things more fun, I won’t be using any One Piece characters for this challenge. If you don’t know, One Piece is an anime about pirates. There are nine roles in this tag post, but the rules says I can choose seven out of it. I am going to try and fill all nine. I am a pirate and I am here to break the rules, because I am Captain Matt-in-the-hat!

Warrior:

Jotaro Kujo (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventures)

Out of all the warriors or tough characters in anime, I think Jotaro will fit in my crew. Jotaro is a tough guy who never loses his cool. With his stand, Star Platinum, he can unleash super fast flurry of punches on his enemies. Star Platinum has super fast reflexes that he can even defend from gun shots. Even without a stand, Jotaro can still beat up people and solve his problems with his fist. I need someone who can stay calm and fight his way in a situation.

Sniper:

https://img1.ak.crunchyroll.com/i/spire3-tmb/cf30bcd7704f20705ed8e44c00e036321452125469_full.jpg

Jigen (Lupin III)

In my crew, I am going to need someone who can shoot fast and accurate. I pick Jigen from the Lupin series. Jigen is Lupin’s friend and partner when stealing valuable items and he is kick on his revolver. He is pretty serious in his mission and doesn’t play around like Lupin.

Chef:

Ignis Scientia (Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV)

Technically he is from a video game, but he is also in the anime spinoff! I pick Ignis to be my cook. Besides him saying “I come up with a new  recipeh” every time he finds an ingredient, Ignis has no problem cooking any dish. He is not far from his kitchen especially when camping. When he is not cooking, he is equipped with some magical daggers that can pinpoint any enemies weakness and even pierce down on anyone with his lance. Ignis is one man who can fight and stay sharp and well-mannered in the kitchen. Give this guy an Ebony drink.

Doctor:

Orihime Inoue (Bleach)

I choose Orhime for this position. Orihime not only has the ability to heal, but also reject the phenomena of matter. Simply put, she can reverse things to the point it never happened. She did this on Grimmjow’s arm whenit got cut off. She can also create barriers as shields to protect her friends and even heal at the same time. She is worthy for my crew.

Scientist:

Bulma Briefs (Dragon Ball)

What’s better than a scientist? A scientist who is rich. Bulma will make an excellent crew member. With her owning the Capsule Corporation, she can use her vast amount of money to help our gear. She can use her capsules and contain big objects. She can even make a radar to find the dragon balls. I need someone who can make something in flash.

Navigator:

Kirito (Sword Art Online)

I choose Kirito to be the navigator. I pick him since I feel like he would be a guy who got more experience traveling. As a solo player in the anime, he doesn’t have to worry to about exploring in his leisure and he knows about a dungeon having traps. With his sensory skills, he could help us detect hidden areas and explore uncharted areas.

Strategist:

Kakashi (Naruto)

I was going to pick Shikamaru because he’s intelligent, but I feel like Kakashi is smart like him, but with more fire power. Kakashi is a very smart ninja and with the Sharingan, he can copy moves from his enemies and use it against them.

Mechanic:

Edward Elric (Fullmetal Alchemist)

He may be small, but don’t let size deceive you. With the power of alchemy, Edward can transform objects into anything without needing a transmutation circle. He can even use his mechanical arm as a blade. I need a crew member to fix and update our ship in a instant.

Entertainer:

Yugi Muto (Yu-Gi-Oh!)

Sometimes we just need to play a game to ease away the tension. I pick Yugi as my entertainer. I am always entertained when watching duel in the anime. If my crew wants to play a card game and battle each other in duel monsters, we should see if we can take down the king of games. Playing a card game will also help us think ahead and improve our fighting skills when fighting.


Here are the people I tag:

  1. Ya Boy Jack
  2. dreager1
  3. Krystallina
  4. Rocco
  5. Shaddowcat99
  6. Chizure
  7. Naja B.
  8. Lita
  9. Shay Taree
  10. Scorpzgca

Are you sea dogs ready to set sail and share your crew post to the world. Are willing to challenge me? Come at me, I will be ready for a duel. Please be sure to visit Melinanimeland’s blog and check out her post.
