It’s the Eye of the Tiger, it’s the thrill of the fight. Risin’ up to the challenge of our rival!
Now that I’ve got that classic tune stuck in your head, let’s turn our attention to Megalo Box. One of the latest sport anime to be released, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the manga Ashita no Joe, Megalo Box is a stunning re-imagining of the boxing anime classic. In a bleak dystopian future, a city, filled with the wealthiest in the centre and slums all around the outskirts, houses the gear-based boxing tournament, Megalonia. Will the protagonist, Junk Dog, manage to rise through the ranks, gain his entry to Megolonia and face off against the undefeated Yuri, the king of kings himself who works for Shirato Corporation, the hosts of Megalonia? You do not want to miss this one!
Over-designing a weapon is something that I thought would go more to anime, but no. It turns out that over-designed weapons are all over. Video games, films, books – You name it, they’re everywhere. But what is it we mean exactly by an Over-Designed Weapon?
The weapon must be aesthetically overly thought-out; it can’t be something that just looks the usual part. It must be visually over-the-top to some capacity. However, a weapon doesn’t necessarily have to be a conventional sword, axe or so on – But it certainly helps with categorisation! Let’s check out this week’s list – It’s our Top 10 Over-Designed Weapons!
A world ravaged by vampires and ancient men of power, powerful Hamon energy must be harnessed to defeat the evil undead. When Hamon isn’t enough, the powerful mental companions known as Stands take centrestage. The world of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is everything its namesake would have you believe – It’s an adventure and hoo boy, is it bizarre. From beautifully manly men, to the most dangerous of manipulators, JoJo, or whichever variant of JoJo we’re talking about, has to rid the world of an evil that plagues the Earth.
But enough about that, is the anime actually any good?
Take to the streets you mad geeks! It’s a time of public celebration, wild revelry and dancing in the streets. Make your obeisance to Dionysus, Bibulous, and Xenagos, rattle your beads and show us your… sick dance moves. Here is our procession of festivals from fiction, parades and holidays that drive people out of their houses to join together and rejoice.
Recently, if you were a friend of mine on either Steam or on our Discord channel, I may have mentioned to you that I’ve been watching JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure recently. At long last, might I add? It’s a series which has always been on my list to watch, but something I just hadn’t gotten around to until recently. I intend to do a full review, but at the moment, I’m only up to the ‘second part’, Joseph’s adventure, but here are my raw feelings of the anime so far.
The Gambler – These are a hard to predict, an often unreasonable group of people – Especially when they’re against you. When they’re on your side, you’d best consider what their actions are carefully, as one moment you could be riding around with a thousand gold, but then the next only have one piece left! Nevertheless, the gambler likes the payout – So if you’ve ever wanted to get a gambler on your side, consider who you’re hiring into your team and appreciate our Top 10 Gamblers in media.
