Besides the obvious news that Ryuko and Satsuki is playable and the game is going to be a fighting game and a gameplay video, we got some news from Crunchyroll! Revealed in the Japanese magazine Famitsu, it’s confirmed that the two characters from the student council will be added to the game. The characters Ira Gamagori and Uzu Sanageyama will be playable. The picture scanned is pretty small, but you can clearly see them. The game will be released for PS4 and PC in 2019.

Well, you might have heard the news about the One Piece game, but if you didn’t know, here’s the update.

Announced recently, Bandai Namco revealed the news that the anticipated video game One Piece: World Seekers will be delayed and instead of being released in 2018, it will be on 2019. The reason why this game got delayed is because the developers wants to please the fans and give them something to enjoy. This could mean that they want to patch any bugs and give fans the experience to enjoy the world of One Piece.

The game will be playable for PS4, X1 and PC. However, according to a question from Dual Shockers, they asked if it’s possible to port the game for Switch. Their response is that they are currently focused on the three mentioned and this was before the Switch came out, but they did say that if fans are really asking for a Switch version, it could happen.

My Top 5 Anime’s of 2017 I seen: Inspired post by Shay Taree

2017 has been one hectic year for all of us. As we approach the end of 2017 and begin anew for 2018, get ready for new anime series and movies. After watching my blogger friend Shay Taree’s recent video “My Top 5 Anime’s of 2017“, I felt compelled to do a list of anime I enjoyed this year. In this list, I will be sharing you guys what anime I seen this year and what I enjoyed the most. Some of the these anime may not be 2017 but it’s something I personally enjoyed. After you get done reading, go check out Shay’s channel and blog!

5. My Hero Academia season 1

https://i0.wp.com/img1.ak.crunchyroll.com/i/spire4/04c70cc61cd207417a322cad0e01e7fc1490298711_full.jpg

I got into this anime after hearing so much positive reviews from fans. If you like action anime and superheroes like DC comics and Marvel, you will like this anime. In this anime, the story is about people having these special powers called quirks. These quirks are special traits that give people powers and some people use them to become superheroes. The story is about a young boy named Izuku Midoriya who was born without a quirk but he wishes to become a hero like his idol, All Might. After a recent event and encounter with All Might, Midoriya is trained by his hero and signs up with other students at U.A. High School.

This anime has amazing music for the opening and ending songs and I enjoyed the combat. Watching these characters use their powers and face challenges was so good that I was on the edge of my chair.

4. Pokemon the Movie: I Choose You!

https://fesapusewebsite.blob.core.windows.net/fathom/5a4cae858d5d9088c3d071ed86a34317.jpg

As a way to celebrate 20 years of Pokemon the anime and video game, Japan decided to revamp the first journey of the protagonist Ash and Pikachu. From their first encounter and to test their friendship, Ash and Pikachu start their adventure in Kanto and in search for Ho-oh!

This is movie me and my friend Allie enjoyed seeing. Even though we both agreed that the movie was different compared to the first season of the anime, it was good to see Ash start from the beginning of the series. There was stuff I didn’t really like such as fast pacing moments and they replaced Ash’s key friends Misty and Brock with other characters supposedly playing their roles (one uses water Pokemon and the other is a medic). Still, we both enjoyed the main Pokemon song!

3. One Piece: Film Gold

https://www.rightstufanime.com/images/productImages/704400097027_anime-one-piece-film-gold-movie-dvd-primary.jpg

Being the third film series, Eiichiro Oda takes the helm again and creates an original story for the Straw Hats. After defeating Doflamingo, Luffy and his friends arrive to the city of gold called Gran Tesoro. In this Las Vegas like island ship, Luffy and his friends discover a dark secret behind the owner, Gild Tesoro, of the island and must find a way to save Zoro from being a golden prisoner. GIld Tesoro is the owner and he has the power to turn anything gold! It’s Rubber vs Gold!

This is actually my first ever One Piece Film I seen. I missed out on watching Film Strong World and Z. Aside from that, I really enjoyed the English from Funimation. It has been a long time since I heard the cast in English and the last time I saw English Dub One Piece was in Toonami; however, the anime was removed from Toonami and replaced with other series. This film was beautiful and epic and seeing Luffy fight was an eye catcher. I did enjoy the music in the beginning of the movie.

2. Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Darkside of Dimensions

https://de1imrko8s7v6.cloudfront.net/movies/posters/ygo_darkside_of_dimensions_poster_v2_us_full_1481146634.jpg

Taking place after the events of the story, Yugi and his friends prepare to graduate high school. Meanwhile, Seto Kaiba tries to find ways to bring back the Pharaoh Atem from the spirit world. However, this attracts the antagonist Aigami (real name Diva) and once again, Yugi must return to dueling to stop both Kaiba and Diva. Diva goal is to rid the world of evil and corruption but Yugi must stop him before he takes over the world. This movie was done by the creator of the manga Kazuki Takashi.

Just like Pokemon, this movie is another thing Allison and I enjoyed the most. What was amazing this movie was the English Dub. If you don’t know what I mean, the cast of the English Dub is from 4Kids and even the anime was done, the original cast came back after all these years played the role of the characters. In a funny way, it is like a reunion of our childhood. Allie and I saw the characters grow up and act like the usual habits like the Saturday morning shows.

1. Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale

https://i1.wp.com/www.otakutale.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Sword-Art-Online-Ordinal-Scale-Blu-ray-DVD-Case-Front.jpg

Taking place after Season 2 and Mother Rosario, a new gaming experience called Ordinal Scale shows up and players with the Augma can play games in AR! Kirito and his friends play in the real word in a virtual reality simulation. Even though Kirito doesn’t enjoy it, Asuna takes the spotlight of the movie and shows off her skills. However, the movie takes a turn to the worse when someone is attacking survivors from the SAO incident. It’s up to Kirito to find out what is the true purpose of Ordinal Scale and why recreate the monsters from Sword Art Online. The movis was done by the light novel auther Reki Kawahara.

If you knew me, I love Sword Art Online. When I first heard about this movie, I was hyped. When Shay did a video giveaway for tickets to Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale, I immediately entered. I didn’t win but thanks to God, I got picked and I won.

I went to see the movie it was released and I only saw it in English Subbed. I also got to watch it with my friend Allie. We enjoyed every moment of the movie. This movie had tons of Asuna action and it had an amazing LiSA song. More importantly, this was my first time watching an anime movie on the big screen and being surrounded by SAO fans. I didn’t experience this alone. It was the best time of my life.

These are my top 5 anime I enjoyed in  2017. Please go and check out Allie’s blog at her site. Allie, you are reading this post, I want to say that after everything we been through in 2017 and whenever talked about anime, let’s do it again for 2018. As a knight of my word, let me stay with you my queen! God bless you Allison.
