Rick and Morty Anime Opening

This is easily one of the most creative and well made fan animations that I have seen for Rick and Morty so far. While most of us are patiently waiting for the fourth season of Rick and Morty to air, the fine folks over at Malec have made an awesome anime style opening for the show. Honestly this is just bad ass. The creators obviously know their anime openings and if I didn’t know any better I would think that this was the real deal. The way the music begins is a great mix of the original show theme and some awesome J-Pop. Honestly this is just a really cool tribute to a really great show. If you are a fan of anime and/or Rick and Morty then you will definitely love this short animation. 

Cowboy Bebop Movie in US Theaters This August

One of the greatest anime series of all time is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and, coming off of Anime Expo 2018 I’m all about anything anime related right now. Funimation has announced that it will be showing Cowboy Bebop The Movie: Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door in the US August 15 – August 16 in select theaters. If you prefer you anime subbed and not dubbed then the August 15th showing is for you. However, if you like the English dubbed version then you should go on August 16th. The film originally opened in Japan all the way back in 2001, and previously screened in the U.S. back in 2002 and 2003. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to see it back then so I’m glad I get a second chance at seeing it on the big screen.

Ghost of Tsushima E3 2018 Gameplay Trailer

I first heard about Ghost of Tsushima back in December of last year when a teaser trailer was released during Paris Games Week. If you haven’t seen it or want to watch it again, then just Click Here to check it out. Since then I have been super excited to see more of this game and Sony finally came through with an awesome 9 minute gameplay trailer at this year’s E3. Personally I have been waiting for a detailed, open world, Samurai game to come to either consoles or PC for a long time. Ghost of Tsushima looks absolutely beautiful and I think Sony and Sucker Punch (developer) have really figured out the keys to making a game like this great. I can’t wait to battle enemies armed with my katana and code of honor.

Attack on Titan Season 3 Trailer

We are only a few short months away from the premiere of the the third season of Attack on Titan. !!!SPOILER ALERT!!! If you haven’t seen all of season 2 then you might want to skip the rest of this article, but I’m gonna assume that everyone has seen it other wise you wouldn’t be here. The last season was crazy! We saw the debut of a new smart titan, we found out that there were Titans in the walls, but worst of all that Reiner and Bertholdt were the traitorous titans that were responsible for the very first attack from season 1.  Still it seems like the more mysteries that get uncovered, the more questions we are left with. Season 3 looks to bring about some more answers but also a lot more questions.

Ghost of Tsushima Game Trailer

One of the most under utilized genres in gaming has to be the samurai era. So many amazing stories have been told throughout history all stemming from feudal Japan. However, it has been forever since we got a decent game that takes place in that era. Back in the day one of my favorite games for the original PlayStation was Tenchu: Stealth Assassin but the sequels were pretty much garbage. For the past few console generations I have hoped that a developer would take the reigns and create an awesome open world samurai game where you could visit different villages and engage in epic sword fights with other samurai. I don’t want to get my hopes too high but Ghost of Tsushima might just be that game we samurai fans have been waiting so long for.

Batman Anime Trailer and First look

So an new Batman anime movie is actually a thing and it looks pretty amazing. Our first taste of a Batman anime was all the way back in 2008 with Batman Arkham Knight, which was a compilation of short animations from different artists. It was released as a promotional project that coincided with the Batman: The Dark Knight movie. Personally I loved this idea and always wondered what it would be like to see batman in his own anime movie. Well wonder no longer Nerd Nation because an official Batman anime is coming and it looks awesome. The movie is titled Batman Ninja and we have the trailer and first look posted for you in a video below.

Blade Runner Black Out 2022 Anime

Blade Runner 2049 is set to hit theaters in just a couple of weeks on October 13. It is the sequel to the 1982 science fiction classic starring Harrison Ford. Some of you may be wondering how a movie from 1982 will connect to a movie being released in 2017. The answer to that question as well as many others is of course…Anime! That’s right an original anime short titled Blade Runner Blackout 2022 has been created to connect the events of the 2 feature films. This is actually one of 3 short films that has been produced for the Blade Runner saga and it is directed by Shinichiro Watanabe, the genius behind Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo.
