    Elseworlds

    Hmm. I loved the Crisis. I remember, the first time I ever read it. I had bought the deluxe edition, hardcover, slipcase, dust cover illustrated by Alex Ross. Twelve issues, over 350 pages. I had only ever caught snippets. That night, in bed, I read all of it. And it was amazing. The Crisis was the capping stone to the Silver (and Bronze) age. For the longest time, capecomics were chronologically divided 'Pre-Crisis' and 'Post-Crisis'. It was written to celebrate 50 years of DC, and also served to streamline their superhero titles, bring all the heroes and villains into one universe and get rid of some worn-out concepts. There has, in truth, never been anything like it, nor could there ever be, because it did what had never been done; everything that came after could merely be imitation. The villain was the purest evil, the stakes, absolute. Heroes and villains died. Reality was changed for good. They will never be able to do it justice.

    Godzilla - King of the Monsters (2019)

    Have to admit, I am really liking the way this is looking. I did like the last American Godzilla movie well enough, so I wasn't sure if i would see this in theaters. But oh boy, definitely now.

    Been Playing Final Fantasy Brave EXVIus these past few years. Great game to reminisce about the past FF. Can't wait for Tifa to be released in the Global version.
  10. One really can't help but notice how similar the design is to Mazinger. It can't be help this is Go Nagai after all. Beside, Melia looks hot.

    Avengers: Endgame

    After every somber scene, you just gotta love Scott Lang lightening the mood at the end. Just how did he ever get out of the quantum realm?

    Captain Marvel

    I hope that is the case... I would have hoped they would learned their lesson from The Inhumans fiasco's. Some comic traits don't transfer well to film... Things can be edited in the lore to make them more fitting for the medium. Fans might care for it, but the general audiences will likely feel like it is just bad acting.

    ...That didn't even occur to me. That would be very cool.

    Captain Marvel

    In the comics, Kree are not supposed to show emotion. Naturally, they are belligerent savages, but their culture harnesses this in enforced rationality. Like Klingons living like Vulcans. Especially in their early appearances, they viewed human emotions as the detrimental signs of an inferior species. Captain Mar-Vell even said "Our children never smile". So maybe that's why, and as Carol rediscovers her humanity, she will show more and more emotion.

    I was lucky, I found both at the same time and dodged that miss hap. There's nothing worse then watching stuff out of context, ironic because thats how I first started watching Guyver. My parents got me OVA 3 first of all... a very, very confusing place to jump in.

    Just had a jaw dropping event... For those who don't know this is Majuu Sensen Apocalipse, a sequel to the original manga and ova series Majuu Sensen. "A secret society of scientists seek to create advanced humanoid lifeforms through the hybrid of man and beast for their almighty Lord Yeshu and the new world that is nigh. When young Shin'ichi Kuruma is pulled into this inhuman pursuit and loses everything, his path of bloody vengence leads him into the depths of a conspiracy greater than he could ever imagine." You can find the manga online and the ova's had a laserdisc release way back when or so I hear, although I've seen some releases online over the years. Pretty intreasting series all in all, the jaw dropping part is that I never thought I'd see the day when Majuu Sensen got any kind of new release. This is from Discotek Media, who've also put out new release of the original Devilman ova's, Testujin 28-go and Godmars. I was looking them up because their who I got Goshogun from. But my jaw nearly dislocated when I saw what they have coming up! Psycho Armor Govarian This is an 80's series created by Go Nagai, one of a small few he did after leaving Toei. There was little info on this series until recently, likely due to this this up coming release. By little I mean even Groizer X, the blandest of all Nagai's robot shows, had a bigger wiki page then Govarian. So seeing this series get an offical release of any kind was borderline impossible... but here it is! So plot wise, well there still little to go one but it's described as a blend of Mazinger Z and Gundam with psychic powers thrown in. It was basically Nagai's stab at a more real robot style work in the wave of Gundam and Ideon. T"he Garadain Empire has exhausted the primary resources of their native planet, so they send different space expeditions to find a new world where to live. One of their main objectives is planet Earth. However, Zeku Alba, an alien scientist, decides to rebel against the imperial rule and flees towards the Earth, where he gathers a group of youngs gifted with the power of "psychogenesis", an ability that consists in creating solid matter from mental energy. The most gifted of the squadron is Isamu, a young orphan whose family was killed in the first attack of the Garadain Empire. He is able to generate the powerful robot Govarian, an armor with which he can battle the alien monsters and is able to regenerate thanks to the psychic energy of the pilot. Helped by two other robots created by his teammates, Isamu, aboard the robot Govarian, defends the Earth in the long war against the alien invaders" Govarian from what little I know uses a combination of psychic attacks and conventional weapons, which sets it apart from most of it's sibling series. Also it's the second smallest of all the Nagai Mechs at 13 meters tall, with only Steel Jeeg being smaller, at about 10 - 11 metes tall. Edit: Just found this while hunting for info...

    Avengers: Endgame

    Yep. It's all what I expected and I am still totally hyped for it. Love that Cap is in his SHIELD suit again. But man, you can clearly tell what happened to Clint/Hawkeye/Ronin. His family must have been part of the other 50%. He looks broken. And having Stark lost in space makes me think Captain Marvel will find and save him. Can't wait.

    Captain Marvel

    Still looks very "meh" to me. I don't know if it is Brie Larson herself, or just the way she is playing the character... but she seems so bland and/or bored. She seems to lack that kind of personality to is required to drive a movie. Especially a Marvel film. Black Widow in Iron Man 2 was kind of like this, but was only a side character and thankfully got fleshed out more in Avengers and Winter Soldier. So now, she is a much better character and deserving of a movie of her own. So I am hoping that will change when I see it, cause I will still see it opening weekend.

    It's funny, my only experience with Goshogun was its sequel movie The Time Etranger... Which was at my local video store. It's a "terrible movie" simply because there was no context to the characters or mecha, since an entire series existed before it that. And it really required seeing the series beforehand. I only rented it because the mecha was on the cover, and even then it doesn't even appear in the movie.

    Not giving much away just yet. I can't imagine in what direction the film is going. I've no doubt that it will be a great film through.

    Currently watching Goshogun Got this by chance, although it's name was on my list. Unlike a lot of the other shows I've got, I know practically nothing about Goshogun as I didn't do any research on it befor hand. This came out the year after Ideon and despite only being one episode in the show feels odd. While it's clearly styled after 70's Super Robot shows, it's story telling is a bit more advanced. For example, our human villains actually get involved in conflicts and politics to further their agenda and make money, such as assisting in wars, assassinating government leaders to be replaced with agents and brutal takeovers of resources such as a dimond industry in Africa. It's not gone into great detail but it's pretty refreshing to see were the bad guys get the resources to support their production of lightsabre wielding, robot foot soldiers and giant mechs. Hell even their reason to go after the heroes is actually more logical, they are after experimental teleportation technology which would be a hug boon to their operations. The show currently feels a bit odd as it blends light comedy moments, such as a over bearing robot teacher and villains reacting comically when a grenade is throne in his hand, with some very dark scenes involving assassination, terrorism, mass-murder and self sacrifice vie an exploding briefcase. While older shows did have this blend of the comedic and the dark, because this series has a more developed story, the contrast stands out more, at least to me. Goshogun is a pretty cool looking robot with its whole design haveing a very super sentai/power rangers feel. So far it's weapons include eye lasers, missiles and a halberd like weapon. However the way it works is convoluted even by Super Robot standards. It's powered by Beamler Energy, a super, do anything, energy in same vain as Photo Energy, Getter Rays etc. However unlike it's predecessors were are not given an explanation as to what Beamler Energy is, given the shows impressive start I'm hoping this is a plot thread that will be developed rather then just"it's a thing and it just works". Were the convoluted part comes from is that this Goshogun clearly takes inspiration from Getter Robo and Gaiking... but utilises aspects of those robots in an odd way. Ok so Getter is formed by three jets that fuse into a robot, Gaiking is a created from parts stored inside a mobile carrier (it's torso being the carriers head), now Goshogun is a fully built robot stored inside a carrier along with three jets. The jets, maned by the robots pilots, then dock inside this fully constructed robots legs and chest. Now I get why this was done, it's to make Goshogun different while also playing on the nostalgia of those older shows, but it really is nonsensical. Character wise we haven't had much time to get to know everyone so I cannot comment to much although the whole team seems competent. So it's off to a very intreasting start.

    Guyver Novel pictures for translating

    Page 28 [I'm so sorry. We wanted to tell you sooner...please don't be discouraged, okay.] Even with Auntie's gentle words, she can't help but lower her head silently. When lying on the bed, the tiredness of the whole day suddenly came out. However she didn't feel like sleeping, her nerves were strangely awake. There is a window on the foot of the wall that is as tall as the ceiling. The one seen from the door is this one. A window that doesn't open - or rather it was fixed. I wonder if it was by chance that I entered this room, such doubtful thoughts lingered. However, what Noriko felt was not despair. It was anger towards herself. (I should have come here earlier) It was because Noriko now knew here brother was dead. -Last Thursday, there was the death anniversary service of father. With mother being hospitalized, the only ones left in the household was only Noriko and her younger brother in the second grade. Relatives living nearby and neighbors came and help out, but after the service has been completed, everyone became so busy suddenly. She finally slept in the deep of the night, her brother's fall shook Noriko up. [What? Didn't you promise that you will go to the toilet alone?] Being tired, Noriko's tone was ill-tempered. Page 29 [I already did] Takeshi replied sharply. [Then that's good. Good night.] [Brother came] Takeshi whispered silently. [what?] [The altar, it was open] Brother was employed in a pharmaceutical company. He would definitely come back on the day of the funeral service, but without knowing the reason, was absent this year, it made them worry. But coming back at this late at night.... [Did you open the front door?] [No] [Then he won't be able to come in] [but he was here. the sliding door to the altar room was open] [Did you hear anything?] [But....] Rarely meeting him, the younger brother was a bit afraid of his older brother. [This is troublesome. Anyway, why don't you come here.]

    Elseworlds

    Funny. If anything, Apocalypse looks like Mobius, who, according to the New 52 reading of the story, is the identity of the Anti-Monitor before he was mutated by the Anti-Life Equation.
