Healing on his home planet of Vegeta, Bardock discovers he has been blessed with the ability to see into the future.
But the blessing soon becomes a curse, as the Saiyan finds himself haunted by visions: the tragic extermination of his own race and the destruction of their beloved planet, all at the hands of Frieza. Bardock sets off on nightmarish race with fate to avert the impending disaster. But as his strength fails and despair sets in, hope will be found in one last vision.

Ratchet is the last of his kind, a foolhardy “Lombax” who has grown up alone on a backwater planet with no family of his own. Clank is a pint-sized robot with more brains than brawn. When the two stumble upon a dangerous weapon capable of destroying entire planets they must join forces with a team of colorful heroes called the Galactic Rangers in order to save the galaxy. Along the way, they will learn about heroism, friendship, and the importance of discovering one’s own identity in this thrilling and funny adventure featuring the voices of Paul Giamatti, John Goodman, Rosario Dawson and Sylvester Stallone.

We join movements, organizations, and systems that align with our own personal values and beliefs. Sometimes we join these groups because they believe in doing good and making positive changes in society. However, these movements can turn sour when a dictator arises or behind the good intentions, there’s a hidden agenda of oppression. It is in these groups that individuals start to shape their identities by questioning their values and beliefs or conforming to the system. This month, we will be examining “real and/or fictitious” movements, organizations, or systems in anime and other pop culture mediums, and the positive and negative effects they have on individuals and society.
*Will have spoilers to the prequel films to Star Wars (Episode I: Phantom Menace, Episode II: Attack of the Clones, Episode III: Revenge of the Sith).

But wait, there’s more!
According to the subtext of the headlines, fans of Yu-Gi-Oh! will be treated with an added bonus of seeing a preview of the English of Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS. VRAINS is the sixth generation of the Yu-Gi-Oh! series.

The main character, Yusaku Fujiki is a quiet high school student with a great insight.

As usual, I am starting to develop a bad habit of writing news a little bit late, but not right now! Thanks to a blogger friend of mine, Anime Girls NYC, I found out there’s another new movie coming out in 2018 and it’s Pokemon! According to her blog, the same team who did the movie “I Choose You!” will be part of this movie and creating the story.
I had to do some research as well and based on the trailer, another team changed Ash’s appearance as oppose to his Sun and Moon version. From the looks of the trailer and trailer, the movie will probably be taking place in Sun and Moon but Ash doesn’t look like his anime version from the TV series. According to Polygon, Attack on Titan studio WIT Studios took over the design of Ash. If you like the designs of Attack on Titan, I hope you like their style for this Pokemon movie. The movie will be released in theaters in Japan on July 13, 2018.
