Weekend Japanatainment - Final Fantasy Anime Edition

Dec 04 // Red Veron
[embed]35422:5973:0[/embed] "Over the fantasy" Anime: Final Fantasy Unlimited I remember first discovering this one in 2005 on the internet, I was so excited about learning about an anime with the Final Fantasy name and checked it out. I was disappointed, it had none of the elements that I loved from the series, or at least it wasn't up to the quality that I expected from such a renowned series that was known for great storytelling. I don't remember this opening but it totally reeks of late 90's/early 2000's visual graphics with the abstract shapes and filters. This opening is a good preview (or warning) for what's up ahead.   [embed]35422:5974:0[/embed] Final Fantasy Legend of the Crystals Review by Austin Eruption from Arcadea Anime: Final Fantasy Legend of the Crystals Here is a review of a Final Fantasy OVA from one of my favorite Youtubers, Austin Eruption, taking a look at an OVA sequel to Final Fantasy V, a game which not available at the time of the OVA release in the US. Check out the video for a better look at the OVA (Original Video Animation).   [embed]35422:5975:0[/embed] Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within I was super hyped when I first heard about this movie, it was around the time I first got on the internet and I must have gone on to the official site so many times just to check out the cool clips and website visuals. Then I saw the movie. I had mixed emotions about what I saw, let's just say it looked amazing at the time but the story was unimpressive. Yes, this is an anime: from the setting, the characters, and the story. They were all anime cliches as hell. I own this movie on DVD which I picked up for a dollar a few years ago and I would say it was worth the dollar just to look back at how graphical technology has advanced since the movie's release.   [embed]35422:5976:0[/embed] Episode 1 - Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV Here is a five episode spinoff anime from Final Fantasy XV that focuses on some of the road trip that lead character Noctis takes with his best friends in the game. I haven't seen the entire thing yet but I have heard of good things. If you're interested in the game's story, check this one out and all the episodes are available on the link below (or watch it all on the video above on one playlist). [Watch the entire series of Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV HERE]   Which one is your favorite Final Fantasy and adaptation? Is there a Final Fantasy I missed on here? SHARE IN COMMENTS BELOW!

Weekend Japanatainment - Japanese English Dubs Edition

Nov 20 // Red Veron
[embed]35406:5957:0[/embed] Batman: Mask of the Phantasm The wonderfully made animated Batman show from the 90's set the bar when it comes to western animation. Be advised that the subs are a joke.   [embed]35406:5958:0[/embed] Rick and Morty Of all the things we export to Japan, the very "unique" Rick and Morty made it across the pacific and probably further made Americans look weirder to Japanese people with all the "American Jokes" contained within. This dub is pretty decent and keeps with the spirit.   [embed]35406:5959:0[/embed] South Park the Movie: Bigger, Longer, Uncut A dub of the movie from 1999, I would totally rewatch the entire thing multiple times (like I did with the original) just to see how they did the translation and dub. The songs are pretty good too in Japanese.   [embed]35406:5960:0[/embed] The Dark Knight Rises If you've been around the "questionable" part of the internet (or twitter), you may be aware of the meme with the movie and the character Bane. I've seen other dubs of this scene and I just associate them all with the ridiculous jokes.   [embed]35406:5961:0[/embed] Big Hero 6 This one is all kinds of meta. This movie is a mashup of east and west where we get a western animated movie with a very strong Japanese inspiration. Now we get to see it in Japanese, what a trip yo.   Is there a western made entertainment product you want to see in Japanese or have seen in Japanese? SHARE IN THE COMMENTS BELOW! We wanna know!

Weekend Japanatainment: Cooking with Dog Edition

Nov 13 // Red Veron
[embed]35384:5942:0[/embed] Steak with Garlic Sauce Here is the latest and possibly final video with Francis. An easy steak dish with a garlic sauce made with some really good looking garlic. Just look at the garlic that Chef got, they're so pretty.   [embed]35384:5946:0[/embed] Hamburg Steak If you've never heard of Salisbury steak, it's basically a beef patty not unlike a burger patty with gravy and mushroom bits. It's an easy recipe that beginners might find not hard to make since there aren't much ingredients.   [embed]35384:5947:0[/embed] Omurice - Omelette Rice This is a recipe for "omurice", which is a omelette and rice put together with some chicken and tomato sauce. A simple and staple dish that we see in many anime and manga because mangaka are simple people with simple tastes. Also, Omurice is super delicious too.   [embed]35384:5948:0[/embed] Gyudon - Beef Bowl Beef bowl is an easy dish that is basically thin strips of beef that melt in your mouth cooked in a sweet and salty sauce with onions topped on rice. It's so good and simple.   [embed]35384:5949:0[/embed] Sukiyaki - Japanese Hot Pot The first ever video from Cooking with Dog and it shows how the show has come a long way since 9 years ago. Sukiyaki is a Japanese dish where meats and veg are cooked in a large and wide pot, similar to that of "hot pots",often at a dinner table for people to enjoy immediately after the food inside finishes cooking. Best eaten during wintertime for providing that warm deliciousness.

Weekend Japanatainment - Monarchy Edition

Nov 06 // Red Veron
[embed]35371:5927:0[/embed] Anime: No Game, No Life A pair of siblings who happen to be really good at all kinds of games are bored of their daily lives and want something more--- challenging. They get transported to a magical land by a deity where war has been replaced by games to decide things between nations. The siblings become the rulers of a nation on the brink falling to another nations using their mad gaming skills. A fun show where characters compete in different games with some very clever and entertaining solutions. A bit of ecchi fanservice in there too.   [embed]35371:5928:0[/embed] Anime: Aldnoah.Zero In the far future where humans in Mars has its own royalty, war breaks out between Earth and Mars due to some human nonsense. Plenty of political intrigue and giant robots too. Written by the same guy who wrote Madoka Magica and Kamen Rider Gaim.   [embed]35371:5929:0[/embed] Anime: K A cool premise where Japan is ruled by different kings that supercede the Japanese government despite having a similar political structure to the real world. How? Because superpowers and fashionable' street wear because most of them look like street gangs. This show's animation style is pretty unique and a lot of people love it.   [embed]35371:5930:0[/embed] Anime: Code Geass In an alternate timline where the British royal family is ousted from Britain and flees to what is now the United States to establish the country of Britannia. Britannia is ruled by a monarchy and they have a military giant robots and some super powers so they take over most of the world. This show is about Japan trying to liberate itself from Britannia with the help of Guy Faulkes-type of character who happens to have a super power that lets him get revenge on Britannia.   Who is your favorite anime royalty or anime featuring royalty?

Weekend Japanatainment - Scary Anime Edition

Oct 29 // Red Veron
[embed]35358:5911:0[/embed] Anime: School Live! Here is an interesting show, take a cute-girl-doing-cute-things kind of show and set it in a zombie apocalypse. Do I have your attention? Yeah, this one is a definite must watch especially with that kind of setting that is actually pretty unique.   [embed]35358:5912:0[/embed] Anime: Ghost Stories This is a show that has been brought over to the US and received an English dub. It was a fairly generic anime horror with kids in actual peril but when it was brought over, the US company that dubbed it, the late ADV films, changed the entire script into a comedy. So what we get is a raunchy and funny show full of jokes and ad-libs by the voice actors turning this horror anime into something quite different.   [embed]35358:5913:0[/embed] Anime: Paranoia Agent This is a show that freaked me out a little bit when I first saw it on late nights on Adult Swim more than a decade ago. The show had atmosphere and mystery with different and separate characters all experiencing odd or weird phenomena that were just plain unsettling at times. It was all thanks to the late anime director  Satoshi Kon, who's made some amazing mind bending anime that just really makes your imagination go wild.   [embed]35358:5914:0[/embed] Anime: Sword Art Online RIP Character development. This show killed it the second it began.   Are there any scary anime or anime with scary elements that you love? SHARE IN THE COMMENTS BELOW! I wanna know!

Weekend Japanatainment - Nintendo Anime Edition

Oct 23 // Red Veron
[embed]35352:5905:0[/embed] Anime: Super Mario Brothers: Great Mission to Rescue Princess Peach (1986) Here is an early anime OVA featuring the Super Mario Bros on an adventure that isn't really based off any game. The original games, Super Mario Bros only came out the year before this one so it does take liberties with the interpretation of the original game and characters. If this anime looks like something that would air in the United States at the time, that is because a lot of the cartoons that aired in the US were either made in Japan or South Korea (and many still are made in South Korea today), so a lot of those cartoon shows back then were technically anime. Crazy, huh?   [embed]35352:5906:0[/embed] Anime: Pokemon Origins - Episode 1: Red This miniseries is not like the ongoing anime/cartoon series that features the forever young Ash Ketchum, Pokemon Origins takes more after the original Red and Blue/Green versions  from the Gameboy, even naming the main character "Red" and his rival "Blue". This show is a bit more violent than the cartoon and is the source of that horrifiying clip where a Charmander screams in terror as it gets its neck chomped on by a Squirtle.   [embed]35352:5907:0[/embed] Anime: Star Fox Zero - The Battle Begins This promotional tie-in anime with Star Fox Zero was made in collaboration with Shigeru Miyamoto and anime studios Production IG (Ghost in the Shell) and WIT Studio (Attack on Titan). It's got some great production value and I wouldn't mind seeing more in the future.   [embed]35352:5908:0[/embed] Anime: F-Zero Falcon Densetsu Now this is from a time where Nintendo tried to make some anime of their existing properties but it didn't really pan out. I just wished they made more games in this series on modern consoles.   [embed]35352:5909:0[/embed] Game: Super Smash Bros for WiiU/3DS This was quite a surprise, this announcement of a character in the then upcoming Super Smash Bros games was done in anime form featuring Link from The Legend of Zelda games and Pit form Kid Icarus games fighting it out in cool anime action. This excited a lot of people and want more. Hopefully we actually get some cool Nintendo animu. Please, my body is ready.   Is there a Nintendo-based anime that you love or want to see?

Weekend Japanatainment - Fall 2016 OP Edition

Oct 15 // Red Veron
[embed]35337:5893:0[/embed] "Ike! Tiger Mask" Anime: Tiger Mask W Let's start off with a show about two wrestlers who wear tiger masks who fight an evil wrestling organization in their own way; one by the path of light, the other by the path of dark. Just from the opening, it looks over-the-top as hell and just feels like a lot of fun. Read more about it from our First Impressions by my fellow Japanator writer Soul Tsukino.   [embed]35337:5894:0[/embed] "Soundscape (サウンドスケープ)" Anime: Hibike Euphonium 2 The first season of this show was loved (and even hated) by many anime viewers so this new one should excite many. The opening looks very fun and well done despite being simple, just what I would expect from Kyoto Animation.   [embed]35337:5895:0[/embed] "Boku wa Boku de Atte" Anime: AJIN 2nd Season The new season for this dark show is now here I really need to catch up. The animation looks vastly improved and the little glimpses of everything in the opening just makes me regret not catching up sooner. Check out our fellow Japanator writer Karishma Roy's Five Best moments from season 1 as well as what to look forward to in this new 2nd season!   [embed]35337:5896:0[/embed] "HISTORY MAKER" Anime: Yuri!!! on Ice No, this show isn't about girls' love on ice but the opposite: it's about boys' love on ice. If you've been around anime watchers on social media, you may have seen a screen cap of the gratuitous male booty from this show. I know this isn't for me (and I am glad that others that love this stuff will enjoy it) but I really dig the opening and song.   [embed]35337:5897:0[/embed] "Seisuu 3 no Nijou" Anime: Occultice;Nine This anime is based off the work from the author of Steins;Gate, hence that familiar naming scheme. Though this one is from the same author and named similarly in style, it has nothing to do with the Steins;Gate universe (or timelimes) but it does exist as video games in said universe. Love the OP.   [embed]35337:5898:0[/embed] "DREAM×SCRAMBLE!" Anime: Keijo!!!!!!!! Here we are. We have reached peak anime craziness. Just when I thought escalation of fanservice and over-the-topness has reached the ceiling, this new anime just broke that ceiling with a butt smash. That firm yet soft buttocks smashing that ceiling with great force by an anime girl (aged over 18) wearing a bathing suit, is exactly what happened.

Though the songs are so good that you can forgive it.   [embed]35321:5882:0[/embed] Anime: Itazura na Kiss Here are two Japanese voice actors trying their best at English but the grammar just makes it worse. Hilarious though.   [embed]35321:5883:0[/embed] Anime: Steins;Gate This one is an intentional bad attempt at English played for laughs with a character who is just the same way when he speaks Japanese.   [embed]35321:5884:0[/embed] Anime: Hello!!

Sunshine More school girl idol action with this new season and you've got some of the girl's love goodness that many fans just love about this franchise.   [embed]35304:5870:0[/embed] "Lotus Pain" Anime: D.GRAY-MAN HALLOW It's been ages since the last time this manga had an anime, many fans who loved the manga got pretty excited after almost a decade since the last anime adaptation was on television.   [embed]35304:5871:0[/embed] "Snow Drop" Anime: Shokugeki No Souma Ni No Sara A rockin' ending that has some nice production value as always and it's not just the food that looks good in this show.   [embed]35304:5872:0[/embed] "Recall THE END" Anime: Danganronpa 3 - Future Arc Here is an interesting setup they have with the Danganronpa series where they have to concurrent series running at the same time. This Future arc takes place in the future and is a sequel to the first Danganronpa anime and game. The events in both series this season are connected from what I hear, I need to play some of Danganronpa 2 to get a better idea of the series.   [embed]35304:5873:0[/embed] "Zettai Kibou Birthday" Anime: Danganronpa 3 - Despair Arc This Arc is a prequel to Danganronpa 2 and takes place before the first game. It's all confusing but they all tie in to the end. Pretty cool concept.   Is there an anime from last season that you love? SHARE IN THE COMMENTS BELOW! I wanna know!
