Yamcha Finally Becomes a Hero?

For those of us that are Dragon Ball fans there are two usual reactions when we hear the name Yamcha. We either cringe or just start laughing. He isn’t known for being much of a force in the Dragon Ball series. In fact, he has been made into more of a joke thanks to some pretty hilarious internet memes. Well, all that might be about to change with the release of a new Dragon Ball manga mini-series. It’s titled Dragon Ball Gaiden: Tensei-shitara Yamcha Datta Ken or just Dragon Ball Gaiden for short and Yamcha finally gets to be the powerful hero that he has always wanted to be.

Ghost in the Shell Extended Clip (Video)

The live action Ghost in the Shell movie staring Scareltt Johansson is almost here and the more I see of it the more I like it. The famous rooftop jump scene that we have been seeing so much of lately has been released online and runs about 5 minutes long. Obviously this scene is a lot different than the original anime movie mainly because the Major is trying to save the target rather than kill him, but there are a lot of call backs to the original anime in it, right down to the awesome briefcase guns!

One Punch Man on Netflix

Female Broly Coming to Dragon Ball Super (Video)

Dragon Ball fans have been in love with the latest TV series in the long running anime and manga titled Dragon Ball Super. The 75th episode just recently aired bringing a close to the Future Trunks saga. As good and exciting as that was, what really blew fan’s minds was what aired after the episode and has now gone viral online. A promotion video for the Universal Survival Arc was released and we caught a glimpse of a character that looked very familiar to us long time Dragon Ball fans. It looks like the Legendary Super Saiyan, Broly is returning but not the way we remember him.

Ghost In the Shell Official Trailer (Video)

The first official trailer for the live action Ghost in The Shell movie is here! Ghost in the Shell stars Scarlett Johansson as Major Motoko Kusanagi. There is no doubt that this live action adaptation of the popular anime/manga has come with some controversy over it’s casting choice. However, both the cast and director has assured fans that this movie was intended to be as accurate as possible. I guess that remains to be seen but I have to admit that it is looking pretty damn good.
