This is going to be an exciting time, I cant wait to learn and grow as the year goes on. 2018 is a start of a new journey, and I would like to officially invite you all to join us!

 

Top Five Fights From the Naruto Series

Over the last 15 years the Naruto series has given us some of the most memorable battles in all of anime to enjoy. As the years went on the scale and scope of these battles increased, and we were given more powerful jutsu and larger stakes. Out of all the battles that have taken place throughout the series what were your favorites? I know its hard to choose, but here our my picks for the top 5 fights in the Naruto series!

#5 Rock Lee vs Gaara

For me, this was the match that set the bar for the rest of the show. Not until this point in the series had we had such a high intensity fight, and what made it so much better was how much of an underdog Rock Lee was entering this match. This not only showcased how dangerous and ruthless Gaara was, but also how bad ass Lee is. The green spandex and bravado are not just for show, Rock Lee is the real deal.

Upcoming Events for Kansas City Area

Is it September already? 2017 is speeding by us, but we still have a couple of cool events for those in the Kansas City area before we bring in the new year. Coming up in October is the KC Japan Festival, held annually at Johnson County Community College. Japan Fest is presented by Kansas City chapter of the Heart of America – Japan America Society. I’ve been going for years and it’s amazing event to experience. It’s a great way to learn about Japanese culture and is something your whole family can enjoy.

Last but definitely not least is the convention I’ve been waiting all year for, the Kansas City Comic Con! It was scheduled a bit later in the year then it normally is, but I cant think of a better way to end wrap up 2017.

KCCC is back for its thirds year, and is set to build upon its reputation as one of Kansas City’s premiere events. We’ve come to expect amazing celebrities guests, as well as some of the most popular and talented creators in the industry. From just the causal fans to the most die-hard, KCCC is always an extremely enjoyable way to spend a weekend, so don’t forget to get your passes! Stop by http://www.kansascity-comiccon.com/ for more information concerning guests and creator  list, and also any special events that will be taking place during the convention. November cant come soon enough! Hope to see you all there!

Netflix Does Castlevania Better Than Konami

When I first heard that Netflix would be adapting Castlevania into one of their original series, I was extremely excited to see one of the most revered gaming franchises finally brought to life, but also hit with a smidge of dread at how absolutely horrible it could turn out to be. With that being said, I’m so glad this show kicks some major ass.

The four episode season was short and sweet. Long enough to establish the characters and their motivations, and short enough to have us thirsty for more. Castlevania appears to be an adaption of the nes classic Dracula’s Curse,  but has offered some cool takes on the story so far.

The animation and action are incredible, but beware this show is not for the faint of heart. Blood and violence is in abundance and is showing no signs of letting up, actually I’m certain it will get much worse. Watching this series, I can’t help but think what if Netflix made an updated Spawn animated series. Damn.

If you are a fan of Castlevania, or just looking for something good to binge watch, this is definitely what you need. The show starts and ends strong, keeping you glued to the screen. I can only hope season two doesn’t take too much time to get here.

New Kids on the Block

I’m in love with My Hero Academia. Not since the early days of Bleach and Naruto has an anime come out with such an amazing and unique cast of characters to watch and enjoy. I can’t help but think about the Chunin Exams as I enjoy this second season, and that’s because the series so far is strongly reminiscent of the first half of Naruto. Academia has a cast of young would be heroes (ninja) being trained by more experienced heroes at a school for heroes.
