Hey everyone if you didn’t get a chance yet head over to my youtube page Express Team Wave for some of my Crunchyroll Expo 2017 videos. We had a great time here at Anime Pad at the con. All of the fans and attendees had a great time too. It was a big huge con with a small con feel. They were sooo impressed with the level of the con for the first year. I talked with many fans and many of the staff at Crunchyroll; they really have everyone in mind.


I love the mobile game Fate/Grand Order and I was having an incredible time getting the hang of it. But Aniplex of America let me hangout with them and personally taught me how to play the game lol. I’m talking tips and everything, and guess what I’m dope at the game now. I couldn’t believe how bad I was at the game, and I even gave them some tips on how others felt about the game. I’m now seeing some of those discussions being implemented in the product and promotion of the game. Awesome.


At the end of the con Crunchyroll’s Director of Entertainment held a Q & A for how attendees felt. I attended this meeting too, just to see what concerns there might be. The only concern was to get an updated badge system with names or barcodes on them. That was the only concern for the massively successful convention they put on. I was very thrilled for the time I spent at the con and I’m ready for next year already.



Mid-Season SuperHero Time 2017 Update

What can I say this has been another one of those great seasons of the Super Hero Time television block. The pairing of this season’s Kamen Rider Ex-Aid and Super Sentai’s  Uchuu Sentai KyuuRanger. These shows are going great, great story, great characters, great abilites. This is a grand slam season for Super Hero Time.

It seems we are coming up to the end of Kamen Rider Ex-Aid. A lot has happened, a ton of character development and revelations. We still aren’t done yet, it’s almost like they just restarted the show. That’s how good we’re talking Ex-Aid makes me feel. Emu hits level 99 with the ability to rewrite programs and I’m thinking he’s invincible. Guess again, if you’re not watching start now.

KyuuRanger is surprising me every episode or every two episodes. We’re coming up on the middle or climax of the show I believe. This show isn’t close to unraveling some of the mysteries and I have no idea how this is going to work out. Each member has his own talents, cool abilities, and they really work as a team. They’re really breaking the mold with this one!!





Silver Fang/Rei & Garo Golden Knight/ ‎Kouga Saejima

Hey, don’t forget about Zero Dragon Blood. It was just 13 episodes so it ended a while ago but it was another good one. I love the Silver Fang in Rei, we see he can turn it up another level. I wonder just how strong he really is, he seems to be right under Garo in turns of strength and power. Catch up with me! I get my Tokusatsu from Tv-Nihon.



Digimon Returns to Theatres

Digimon is an anime (Japanese Animation) television show, that came to life in 1999, and resembled Pokemon. The show is about the life of eight pre-teens: Tai, Matt, Izzy, Joe, T.K., Kari, Sora and Mimi that can see digital monsters and fall into the, “Digital World.” In the Digital World are many monsters and problems. The eight children are destined to fix the Digital World with the help of their own digital monster (Digimon). Through working together, going through trials and believing in their own selves; they grow/evolve and so to do their Digimon.

After two seasons and a theatrical movie in 2000 titled: Digimon: The Movie. The show moves on from this group to many more seasons and many more different groups of human helpers of the Digital World. Now, 2016 with the US English Dubbed release of part one of a theatrical trilogy titled: Digimon Adventure Tri. 1: Reunion. The director is Keitaro Motonaga, other notable animes he’s worked on are: Jormungand, Date a Live, and Get Backers. He does very well with many characters and allowing viewers to see the character development. There are a team of writers on this film many of which have a ton of work on various animes and adaptation work to the US market. The studios producing the film are Toei Animation (Japan) and Studiopolis (United States). Fathom Events is responsible for presenting the movie in theatres.

The biggest compliment to this film is the fact that 90% of the original voice acting cast reprised their roles. Even the new comers sound so close to the originals that it didn’t matter. T.K. (Johnny Yong Bosch), who happens to be Adam from Power Rangers Second and Third season. He’s also done the voices of Ichigo Kurosaki (Bleach), Orga Itsuka(Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans) and Artemis (Sailor Moon Crystal). Joe Kido (Robbie Daymond) he’s also voiced Lenka Utsugi (God Eater) and Mumen Rider (One Punch Man). Matt Ishida (Vic Mignogna) he’s voiced rolls as: Edward Elric (Fullmetal Alchemist), Broly (Dragonball Z), and Captain James T. Kirk (Star Trek Continues). Johnny and Robbie happen to both be originally born in Missouri, and Robbie being raised his first 12 years in Chesterfield, MO. Robbie Daymond Interview with my partner Sam Coleman.

The film starts with some foreshadowing, images of some of the digidestined in peril. The film doesn’t let us know which characters or what’s really happening, but something is amiss about the viewings. Then boom we’re introduced to the original eight digidestined and what they are up to now. They’ve all changed and the interactions between them are greatly different. The film is greatly character building driven, a slice of life type atmosphere. My only problem with the film is the lighting in the fight scenes. If you’ve watched a ton of anime, it’s very recognizable and it takes a ton of detail out of the film. In the Japanese version it’s totally different lighting and you see every detail of the fights. So boom an infected digimon appears and the digidestined are back on the mission to save our world. Overall, a great film if you want the nostalgic feelings of Digimon and want to see how the team fares.

Here are some viewers from the event.
