Anime! It’s a little crazy, it’s a little zany and usually it’s usually full of action! We love action here, so this week I got with Kevin Kutlesa from The Mental Attic, where we decided to have a sit down chat about anime – and more importantly, anime that we would have loved as a teenager. Some of these have been around for ages; whereas some of them came and went. Either way, these are our Top 10 Shonen Anime!
After the initial disappointment I experienced from the start of Dragon Ball Super, I slowly got into it. I felt like, as a fan of Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z, that I should stick it out and try out more of the series. Heck, I even liked GT (which some readers may find disturbing)! Having said this, the Tournament of Power, the current Dragon Ball Super arc, has been gripping with some excellent moments… But has it gone on for too long?
The fight is fought and won, there is no more glory to be had here, so why are you lingering? Why it’s to finish the job in style of course; because no epic fight is finished with one guy just bleeding from his wounds, or simply limping away to feel sorry for himself. You have to let them know who’s won, you have to do it in style!
This is a subject which has gotten me going quite a few times. A lot of people seem to dispute me, but I’ve seen in several sources that I’m correct with this one… so I’m opening this up as a discussion for all fans of Dragon Ball.
With the release of Dragon Ball Xenoverse (which I fully intend to get), I figured it’d be fun to debate the lesser cared about people of the Dragon Ball universe: The humans.
I truly believe that Dragon Ball is one of those franchises that has helped to change the scene. Think about it for a moment; you’ve got the original Dragon Ball which, although popular, was really just the way the franchise begun. Then you had the immensely popular Dragon Ball Z, which if you were a 90s baby, you’d likely have grown up watching Dragon Ball as a teenager. At least this is what I did… Hmm.
In 2015 however, Dragon Ball seems to be making another one of its strong come backs. Every couple of years, it seems like the Dragon Ball team get back together and get on with producing something truly noteworthy. The last brilliant Dragon Ball film was aired only back in 2013, which was known as Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods. Next on our list of films is: Dragon Ball Z: Revival of F. Honestly, I am looking forward to this so much and it should bring back a wave of nostalgic fans from the times I was watching the series of Dragon Ball Z. Does anyone remember the Frieza Saga? If you enjoyed said saga, then you’ll enjoy Revival of F. This film is set to come out in Japan in April 2015, so let’s watch out for when we can get a subbed version!
