As the years' pass and the anime market globalizes their distribution, productions have had to adapt in the best way so that their impact and sales exceed initial expectations. In the mission to generate content to keep sales at the top, many production companies have put aside authentic jewels of Japanese animation that have traveled the world, positioned themselves as the favorites of millions of people.
Blast is a very mysterious character, who’s identity has plagued fans since the character was first introduced. We’ve seen snippets of him in both the anime and manga, but the mentions of him are shrouded in mystery. His face is always hidden, or he is shown entirely from the back. In this article, we will go over a few theories out there in the One Punch Man fandom of who Blast is and why fans are so excited for his reveal, which we all hope will come very soon.
In the world of Japanese animation, there are all kinds of series. Each genre has special characteristics that appeal to a certain type of audience, and classifying an anime is sometimes easy, due to the trend of its creators. This makes it possible for lovers to know in advance if they will like a series and won’t consider many others that don’t fit their liking or opinions.
But many animes and mangas cannot be segmented within a genre because they mix a bit of all, becoming a series that is more real than any other story and usually cannot be understood by a simple mind that only wants to see people slamming each other for no reason. These kinds of animation pieces are undervalued by many; when in reality, they keep within themselves great ideals that cause a total change in the lives of those who understand them.
And this is the case of the anime Wolf’s Rain; created by the author of Cowboy Bebop, Keiko Nobumoto and broadcast in early 2003. An anime that didn’t reach much popularity in its time and that, today, has been almost forgotten by the audience; with a complexity difficult to find in current productions and which is far from being a favorite of the masses.
Boruto: Naruto Next Generation is great for anyone who wants to start the Japanese animation Shonen genre; including those who have zero knowledge of the previous Naruto’s sagas. The authors have managed to capture the past of each character in the anime to link their audience and introduce them to an ancient war world, contrasted with a modern society where the main concern of the minor ninjas is to take care of the citizens.
There is no doubt that we expected to savor that peace that the antagonists of the past never believed existed and that is now fully shown in this plot. And while it's a shame it won't last long, hopefully, we'll be there when it will be over.
I can’t even begin to express my sadness of knowing that Shingeki no Kyojin ended so soon. I would have liked the story to go on a little longer, but what makes it so special is how well-paced it is. Neither in the anime and much less in the manga the content that is unnecessary of mere filler; this is due to the fact its producers have been wise enough to create a product that stands out in history for its excellence and not for its duration.
We have been waiting for a while and filled with uncertainty to see the end. The most recent developments published in the manga promise a story that I had never seen in any anime and that millions of fans are waiting to see.
Shingeki no Kyojin is a production full of hidden details and interesting human ideologies. This makes it worth seeing not just once, but several times.
All of us were waiting for better animation and a better adaptation as a whole and while it has a solid storyline, I would argue that the anime is fairly enjoyable, but considering the type of material they had to work with, it could have been so much better and I think that’s where the problem lies: the knowledge and certainty that was just good or decent could have been excellent.
Witchblade is an anime that people like me would only see once and I recommend it to those faithful followers of the Top Cow universe because they are going to have a much more complete understanding of the franchise’s mythos and they can enjoy the story of a new bearer, with her own personality and dreams, just like Sara Pezzini captivated us, to begin with.
It’s not an anime for all people. If you like to think, devise strategies and inquire about things that may never succeed in the end, you have to see The Promised Neverland. The suspense of the plot, the cruelty of its reality and the sweetness of a lot of children will make you connect completely and will watch all the chapters in a few days.
Saint Seya: Episode G is a very fun spin-off with a lot of fanservice and quality storytelling for longtime Saint Seiya fans. It’s done in such a way that it connects very well with the rest of the main storyline and it can also serve as its one unique story, so if you’re not familiar with the franchise, you can still read this manga.
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is a phenomenal anime that you should take into consideration if you want to watch something new and be amazed. It’s a very solid and respectful representation of the source material and a great example of what you can achieve when you decide to make the best possible adaption with the material that you have at your disposal.
And it’s just fun. That’s the biggest goal of an action-based anime, especially the Gundam franchise, and does it very well while commenting on very important issues that have become even more prominent these days, such as loyalty, the sometimes necessary virtue of conflict, the human capacity of going the distance and the brotherhood that can be developed during a war.
The Legend of Crimson Youth is one of the best moments in Saint Seiya’s long history and definitely the best movie that they have made about them. It’s fun, it’s epic and it truly captures that moment in time where the series was at the height of their powers and was delivering some of the stories that anime has ever enjoyed.
If this is the first time that you have heard about this film, I don’t think there is an English dub, so I advise you to check the Japanese version. But if you need this in Spanish, the original Latin dub is really solid and I can safely say it is some of the best dub in the anime industry.
After a long agonizing wait for 4 years, the most anticipated second season for One Punch Man has finally finished airing after 12 episodes. While fans don’t exactly know what to feel about the anime in its different aspects and controversies before it first aired, its ending left us all weirdly satisfied and already hyped for the next one!
