Jump Force news: More Yugi pics and HxH characters join the fray!

Hello anime fans! I bring you good news in the world of anime and video games! Remember the old news when I mention Yugi from Yu-Gi-Oh! was going to be in the upcoming game Jump Force? I got an update revealing that Yugi will have the ability to summon his iconic monsters to assist him battle. Based on the pictures online, he will be using Dark Magician, Dark Magician Girl and one of the Egyptian God Monsters Slifer the Sky Dragon. Bandai Namco hasn’t reveal any information on the gameplay, but I would use you could swap out monsters and each one has their own fight style and Slifer might be an ultimate attack.

Another important news is that we are getting more new characters in the game and they are from Hunter x Hunter. Revealed online, Gon’s friends Killua and Kurapika are joining the fight. Either you want to play as an assassin or a fighter seeking to avenge the Kurta Clan, these kids mean business.

Last but not least, it’s confirmed that Goku’s transformation SSGSS (Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan) or Super Saiyan Blue will be used. If you think Super Saiyan isn’t enough, use this form. Super Saiyan Blue made it’s first appearance in the movie Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ and it made more appearances in the TV series Dragon Ball Super.

What do you think about the news?

Dragon Ball Super Broly movie discussion: Predictions, Theories and Possibilities!

Hello everyone! I hope everyone is having a nice day today in the internet world. As we are in September, get ready to enter the fall season. Coming in fall, we have the remastered movie of the classic fan favorite Dragon Ball Z movie Dragon Ball Z: The Legendary Super Saiyan Broly in select theaters. The movie will be playing in September 15th and 17th. More Dragon Ball Z movies and specials are coming this fall in November and they are called, Fusion Reborn (12th movie) and Bardock: The Father of Goku (TV special). You might be wondering why are these movies chosen and are premiering in theaters. Before I tell, let me what’s the special occasion with these DB movies. It’s been announced that there is going to be a Dragon Ball Super movie this late 2018 and early 2019 (Japan will have it on December and North America is on January). The movie is titled Dragon Ball Super: Broly and according to resources, Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama will be involved with the movie and that also means that the fan favorite antagonist Broly will finally be canon to the series.

Masako Nozawa in Doragon bôru chô: Burorî - Dragon Ball Super: Broly (2018)

With this said, this is what I want to talk about. I want to talk about the things I noticed with the Dragon Ball Super movie and what I think what we should expect from the things happening around us. First off, let’s talk about what is this movie about. According to the trailer, the story takes place after the last episode of Dragon Ball Super where the Tournament of Powers is over and Goku and his friends are living in peace. The peace is suddenly over when Goku and Vegeta meets a mysterious group led by Paragus and his son Broly. Broly is sent to fight both Goku and Vegeta and surprisingly overwhelms them with his power. It’s also hinted that Frieza gets involved too fighting the monster Saiyan. We do see some glimpse  of the Saiyan Race when we see some babies and other Saiyans.

A movie like this sure gets any Dragon Ball fan excited. For me, I am hyped for 2019 with this movie and I have all the time to wait. While I wait, I took the time to watch this trailer and also research the past Dragon Ball Z movies. After going over stuff, I feel like the new Dragon Ball Super film is going to borrow key elements from these past movies and specials. Here is the breakdown from my information gathering skills:

Dragon Ball Z: Broly the Legendary Super Saiyan – Broly and Paragus is back!

Obviously shown on the title, Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie will have the characters Broly and Paragus and they will officially be canon. Instead of using the same designs from the DBZ movie, Toriyama decides to update and modify the designs of both Broly and Paragus. Seen in the video and pictures, Broly appears with a”barbarian” appearance by donning the Saiyan armor with a fur pel belt. Paragus stll has the scar, damage eye like in the old movie, but appears very old with gray hair and a long beard. It is also shown in the video that he tells Broly to go and attack without any mind device suppressing his rage. It could be possible that Paragus can control Broly. Overall with this point, DBS: Broly and DBZ Broly will still retain the same characters but with updated appearances.

Bardock: The Father of Goku – Possible history on the Super Saiyan God?

Bardock: The Father of Goku is a TV special which tells the back story about Goku’s father Bardock and he saw a vision about the fate the Saiyan race and how Frieza was going to rise and then fall by the hands of Goku.

I feel like this is another thing to point because I feel Dragon Ball Super: Broly is probably give in depth about the Saiyans past and might even mention about Friez’a hate towards the Sayians. Going back to an old post I wrote about the movie announcement, it is hinted that the Dragon Ball movie will be discussing about the Saiyan’s true power. According to Toei Animation site, the new movie theme will be about “the origin of the Saiyan’s power and what it means to be a Saiyan.” It got me thinking, what if we get to learn about the Super Saiyan God as well. It was mentioned in the Battle of Gods movie that a group of Saiyans work together and channeled their energy into one Saiyan that warrior became a Super Saiyan God. The Super Saiyan God was very powerful, but the warrior lost its power and disappeared. Here’s another what if scenario. What if Paragus tried to turn Broly into a Super Saiyan God?We know that Broly is a powerful warrior born with a high power level and was able to transform into a Super Saiyan really early. In the DBZ movie, Paragus used his son’s powers to bring fear other planets and even tried to kill Vegeta in acts of revenge against his father, King Vegeta. What if in DBS Broly, Paragus tried to experiment and use his own son to gain the Super Saiyan God powers? As usual with Frieza, he destroyed the Saiyan race and the planet because he saw how powerful Saiyans get and was afraid they would overthrow him.

Fusion Reborn – Possible new SSB Gogeta?

Last but not least, we have the Dragon Ball Z movie Fusion Reborn. Fusion Reborn is the 12th movie in the series which tells the story about Goku, Vegeta and Pikkon fighting against an evil dimensional warrior named Janemba who is wrecking havoc in the Other World where the dead is among the living. Janemba get so strong that not even Goku and Vegeta could take him on by themselves. The ace in the card is where Goku and Vegeta performs the Fusion dance and become Gogeta and defeats Janemba.

As far we know, Goku and Vegeta are going to be the known Z-Fighters to fight against Broly. I have my specualtions after reading a fellow blogger’s post named bookishnerdygirl who found some interesting information about upcoming updates to Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. According to her blog, she found out some information stating that Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 will be adding some more DLC for the game. It’s hinted that DBS version of Broly will be in the game, but it sounds like a “new form” of Gogeta appear in the game. It could be possible that Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie will include Gogeta or for the most part Super Saiyan Blue Gogeta. Gogeta is a powerful warrior because it’s the fused form of Goku and Vegeta who known as the strongest Saiyans on Earth. Besides the DBZ movie, Gogeta doesn’t get much attention unless you play the video games. If Gogeta does appear in this new movie, he will be canon to the series and we might see some new powers like obtaining SSB. In a sidenote, Goku and Vegeta has fused before but with the Potara earings fusion and became Vegito due to circumstances. They became Super Vegito when fighting against Majin Buu (or known as Super Buu) in DBZ. They brought back Vegito and gave him the Super Saiyan Blue in Dragon Ball Super when they fought against the fused villain Zamasu (fused by Zamasu and Goku Black).

Conclusion: Long Story Short

With this extensive information, here is my possible prediction to Dragon Ball Super: Broly. The new movie will be borrowing elements from past movies and will incorporate something entirely new to fans. We will be getting Broly and Paragus in Toriyama’s involvement. We might get more information about the Saiyans, Super Saiyan God and maybe about Frieza’s involvement with the Saiyans. We could see a possible chance of having Gogeta on the big screen and being part of the main story. Maybe the reason why these two movies and special is being brought back to theaters to help refresh the memories of fans and give us hints of possiblities in the new DBS movie.

Escape to the Great World of Anime!

You might be wondering the title and the purpose of this post, there’s a funny story behind this. I am good friends with my anime and colleague friend Allie from Visionaries and we whenever we text each other, we have a really long conversation on anything. Whether it is anime, cartoons and just life, we can go on for hours; however, one day, we had an interesting topic in which also inspired me to write this post. As usual we were talking about anime and how much it would be cool to leave reality and jump into our favorite anime. He texted me this comment but she called it a “rant”:

Go on some sort of adventure become our own heroes. Live in a world where we can be us and that’s good enough. Where words only positivity and people look on the bright side instead of dwelling on the negative. To face their problems instead of keeping them bottles up until they explode :). Oh the naive mind is back to reality now.

This got me thinking, if it’s possible to leave reality for a day and enter any world in the anime I seen is, I would do it. Some people might agree with me in this comment especially if you like anime. Most of us had this deep wish where we can have the ability to go our favorite anime. After hearing her say this, I added my own comment to hers and I told her why I want do it if I could jump into anime:

I would love to visit that world. Take me to Sword Art Online and let me go on quests or Yu-Gi-Oh! and let me duel with my monsters. Take me to a world where my average “me” can be greater. 😀

This may sound silly the way I said it but wouldn’t it be awesome? Imagine leaving your average or boring life for a day, months or whatever time you desire and escape to somewhere where you are the hero or at least feel important. Basically, what I am saying is this: if there was a way to enter a world where you leave your dull life and enter a new world where you can live your favorite anime world or worlds, would you do it?

Personally, I would. In my daily life, I usually live just an average routine where I watch anime or just do my daily chores. Whenever I see anime characters in action or doing something exciting, I get envious. Like a kid who wants to be their favorite superhero, I like to dream and wanting to be something great like my favorite characters. If I can jump into worlds of anime, I would be hero in Dragon Ball Z, travel  and enjoy solitude in Sword Art Online, or even obtain some powerful beings in Yu-Gi-Oh!.

The anime world is more bizarre than JoJo’s Bizarre Aventure but that’s okay, it just means the norm is the oddities itself like the anime Durarara!! Can it be dangerous? Yes! Will you survive? Of course if you have the right skills and ideal anime.

If somehow or someone came to you and asked if you could jump into any anime world you desire, where would you go?

If there was a rabbit hole like Alice in Wonderland where anime logic exist and all reality doesn’t, would you dig deeper?

Or better yet, if there was a door and it says “door way to anime”, would you open that door and not look back?

What would you do and where do you want to go?

This is not one of the news, but just as a reminder, I got a job at Amazon last week on Wednesday (10/12). This means I will be really busy but I will still be here to respond to Tweets and WP comments.

You might be wondering what’s the deal with the title. I got this title from the classic movie “Back to the Future: Part II“. Saturday is Back to the Future Day and the reason why it is a big deal is because in the movie, the characters Marty McFly and Doc Brown time travel to the future of 2015 in California. Last year, people tweeted and talked about Back to the Future.

Now onward to the news! Saturday is the online web-series premiere of volume 4, RWBY. The anime series returns and all your favorite characters return after the dramatic events of volume 3. Ruby and her friends are back to kill the Grimm and restore the world from a evil. Most fans remember going through the suffering in volume 3, but now with volume 4, fans are anxiously ready for more adventures. Remember to stay tune to the first episode on October 22.

In the next and final news, October 25 is the official release of the video game Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. In this sequel, fans can relieve the Dragon Ball moments and fight to save the future by helping the heroes in the past. The new game will include new characters like villains from the movies and Dragon Ball Super characters, like Goku Black. Even more players will be able to work together in missions and tackle enemies. Based on people’s gameplay, if you have the save file to the first game, your information will be transferred to this game.

Final, final news is that I reached 500 posts on October 17!
