Saturday Morning Update #49


This week saw the release of the English dub of Digimon Adventure tri. Chapter 3 "Confession." I've only ever seen this chapter once and I'll probably not watch this version again. I think it's boring. It's so freakin long and has so many scenes that just drag on and just when they're over it cuts to something even less interesting (read: Meiko.) There are some gold nuggets here and there but something is off. The last two dubs have punched up the jokes and with this being the Tentomon movie I was kinda disappointed in Tentomon's dialogue. Usually he has the best lines, regardless of whether or not he's the focus or his voice actor is also the writer. I'm really still upset there wasn't a fight until the until 4/5th of the way through it. That being said the fight we do get is awesome and Jeff Nimoy is 1000% perfect as HerculesKabuterimon. 

Get your copy here. It's a great way to support the franchise and it sits nice on a collection shelf. Man this series feels like it's never gonna end.

PROFESSIONAL GEEK: Nivetha Kannan


Professional Geeks is a series of interviews with some of the coolest people I know; people who pay their bills being geeks. Nivetha Kannan is a freelance artist and graphic designer. I first met her in Artist Alley at Tekko 2014 where she and her sister were selling high quality Digimon plushies (I still have my Tanemon almost four years later.) Nivetha has also worked on indie games and zines. Recently, she has been working at Cartoon Network.

REVIEW: Warcross + Giveaway


Ever since I started getting into the book side of geek blogging, I’ve known about Warcross by Marie Lu. I had just finished Ready Player One and Warcross sounded so similar, I was ready for another adventure into a virtual reality game world. After leaving New York Comic Con, where I discovered a bunch of new books, Warcross was still at the top of my list of books I wanted to read as soon as possible. Once I got my hands on a copy, I couldn’t put it down.

After the jump, check out my full review of Marie Lu’s Warcross and stick around to find out how to win your own copy!

Satuday Morning Update #48


Well NaNoWriMo is over and as you can see from my stats above I didn't even make it halfway to the 50k word goal. BUT! I did finish my story technically. There are at least 2 chapters I'd like to add and the entire second half is a rushed mess, but there is a satisfying ending and a full character arc. It's also a novelization of a script I wrote so now comes the fun part: I'm gonna make a movie!

REVIEW: Astra Lost in Space

manga review for astra lost in space viz media shonen jump anime

I was first drawn to this new manga series from Viz Media by of its cover. Two teenagers floating in space. At first glance, it looked like Valerian to me. But the description of nine kids going to camp and getting lost in space reminded me of my other love: Digimon. A new manga that’s basically Digimon in space minus the actual Digimon? Alright, sign me up. Check out my full review after the jump.

Saturday Morning Update #47

This was a busy week for us. Last Saturday we went to a Yule Ball event and then we traveled to my parent's house for Thanksgiving. I'm pretty behind on NaNoWriMo, way past the point of finishing on time. But finishing on time wasn't so much my goal anyway. Otherwise, I've spent my week watching Naruto movies and reading DC Comics. I have a literal stack of stuff to review for the blog, so my goal is going to be getting through that stuff!
