I Want To Take an Anime and Manga Tour in Japan

OMG... I want to do this. (Maybe Next Year - I don't have Vacation Time left this year since I will be going to Peru this summer) Their next tour is in just a few weeks, and seems to only happen once a year, in March coinciding with the International Anime Festival AnimeJapan. https://japandeluxetours.com/japan/group/anime-japan-tours#anime3 Visiting Japan is my life long dream. (sadly, mostly just so I can go shopping for anime, game, and doll stuff lol. Although I do want to do the museums and cherry blossoms and hot springs and other cultural things too - though mostly, I'm just a big geeky nerd who loves anime and wants to go shopping - which is what this whole tour is designed for <3) It's not that much money (well OK it is, but it's cheaper than I expected honestly).

Pop in Q Anime Movie Review

Title: Pop in Q Length: (approx) 1.5 hours, feature length film. I hear there is a 2nd film in production as well that will finish telling the story. *hint: Keep watching after the credits of the first movie* Genre: Shoujo, Magical Girl, Fantasy, Idol, Musical, Slice of Life, Drama Studio: Toei Annimation Release Date: December, 2016 Score Card: Geeky 1/5 - There is a bit of action later in the film, also some nostalgia to anyone who grew up watching shows like Digimon. But largely, this is pure shoujo aimed at very young girls. Afterall the girls themselves are middleschool students in this film. Sweetie: 5/5 - This anime is utterly adorable!!! The Popin look like Sanrio characters. The girls are young and have round faces and big eyes. The music is catchy. Idol culture

How to get Gen 2 Eevee Evolutions Umbreon and Espeon in Pokemon Go

Many players may already know this trick, but in order to get an Umbreon, name any male Eevee Tamao; or to get Espeon name any female Eevee Sakura, then completely exit the game, make sure it's not running in the background, and relaunch the game. I have photographic proof that this trick works. Got both Umbreon and Espeon on our first attempt. To see the pics or read more about the trick, please refer to my guide at https://mediacraft.rockuapps.com/articles/how-to-get-gen-2-evee-evolutions-umbreon-and-espeon-in-pokemon-go

5 Best Anime Games of 2016

5 Best Anime Games of 2016 Continuing the long standing tradition of converting shows and comics into video games (or vice versa), 2016 has delivered us a slew of very decent games. Compared to their predecessors, these games have come a long way from the old days when Bandai meant a relatively short and generic gameplay experience. But enough stalling; you came here for a list of great games, and here it is! Just be sure you’ve got the right console to play on. Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 If you’re into fighting games and follow the Naruto universe, this one is definitely for you. Continuing the visually flamboyant style of the previous Ninja Storm games (as well as the absurdly long title conventions), Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 offers a vast se...

The Benefits of Playing Pokemon Go Outweigh the Risks

I was not into Pokemon Go when it first launched. It wasn't until my mom began playing that I took interest. For a few reasons, first, when the game first came out, there were numerous game crippling bugs which made it almost impossible to play. It's also a rather difficult game to learn at first, it gives absolutely no guidance, direction, tutorial, etc. This combined with the bugs in early days made the game frustrating and a lot less fun than it is now. Second, I'm not one to enjoy exercise. It's not that I'm "Lazy", but well... exercise is "painful" and "tiring" and "annoying".  When I started playing Pokemon Go, I thought how annoying or stupid it was to have to go outside. This was when I was playing it alone in the first few days of the launch. This began to change when I found s...

Monster Rancher EVO | Monster Rancher 5 | PS 2 | Monster Taming | Retro RPG | Review

Monster Rancher is a series of games (there's also an anime) in which you (at certain prompts) insert another cd, dvd, or game disc into your machine to generate a monster which you then take back to your ranch to train for battle. I'm reviewing Monster Rancher EVO today because it stands out the most for its story and characters, although its gameplay deviates significantly from any of the other games in the Monster Rancher world. I recommend this game, but I also would recommend any of the other Monster Rancher games as well. I've played them all (with the exception of the hand held ones). It is truly a great monster taming series. Also, although no new games have been released in over half a decade, there are 2 different mobile games which come close to capturing the spirit and fu...

Koe – a JRPG to learn Japanese Vocabulary Kickstarter

Koe is an upcoming JRPG styled game by an indie UK developer that is intended to teach players Japanese Vocabulary in a game that draws inspiration from Pokemon and Final Fantasy. The game has already reached the funding goals and there is already progress being made. The dev team has run into some delays but hope to soon release a demo to those who have backed the game via kickstarter or paypal. The developers also note that all of the artwork is placeholder at this time and will be replaced in the final version. It looks like quite the interesting, and perhaps educational, little game. Check out the trailer below: Visit the kickstarter page for more info here: http://kck.st/1c8NbwL The developer of Koe Stresses that this is first, and foremost, an entertaining game, more so than a...

Azure Dreams – RogueLike Dungeon Crawler with Dating Sim, City Building, and Pokemon Style Gameplay | Retro Game Review | Playstation | 90s | Cute Anime RPG

Title: Azure Dreams Publisher: Konami Release Date: 1997 Platforms: Playstation 1, and Gameboy Color. Note that the Gameboy Color version is widely different and not as good as the PS1 version, for example the Gameboy version removed all of the dating sim elements from the game. I really recommend playing the original PS1 version. Where to Buy: Unfortunately it's very old and hard to find, at time of this review there is one copy left on amazon, being sold for $150+ Keep your eyes on this page here: http://www.amazon.com/Azure-Dreams-Pc/dp/B00000DMAP  You can also check out the reviews there and see for yourself that this is a great game. I wish Konami would release this game on the Playstation Store. I'd buy it in an instant even though I still have my PS1 disc. (darn lack of backwa
