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. 

Henry Cavill to play Geralt in Netflix Witcher series

It’s official! Henry Cavill has been cast in the lead role as Geralt of Rivia in the up coming Witcher Netflix series. So personally I thought it was crazy when Superman himself Henry Cavill said that he wanted to play Geralt last month. Honestly I wasn’t sure if that would be a good fit for him but it doesn’t matter what I think because the producers of the series seem to think it’s a great idea. As far as his look goes he just seems a bit too bulky to play Geralt. Sure Geralt is pretty cut in the games but he’s a bit more slim than Henry Cavill. Of course he could always lose a bit of his mass but still, there is just something about his face that doesn’t seem to quite match up. 

Poster and Release Date for Castlevania Season 2

Old school Nintendo fans and anime lovers alike were united in their praise of the Netflix original anime series, Castlevania. If you haven’t watched the first season yet I highly recommend that you do. The series itself was really well done. The animation was great, the characters were well fleshed out, the story was mysterious but also exciting. Overall it was just really entertaining and left us wanting more. I think the biggest complaint was that it was really short. Season 1 consisted of only 4 episodes and worst of all fans were left believing that it would be a solid couple of years before we got more episodes. However, Netflix has made sure that is not the case and dropped an awesome new poster and release date for Castlevania’s second season.

One Punch Man Season 2 Announcement Trailer

Sometimes I can’t believe how long it takes to get a second season of an anime series. One Punch Man was one of the biggest anime series of 2015, and by the time season 2 comes out it will have been 4 years since the first episode premiered. Still they say all good things come to those who wait and I hope that stands true for season 2 of One Punch Man. That’s right Nerd Nation, we are finally getting a second season and I can’t wait to see what new super powered enemies Saitama, Genos, and all the other heroes will face this time around. Unfortunately for us we still have to wait about 7 more months as One Punch Man Season 2 won’t officially premier until April of 2019…

Halo TV Series Starts Production in 2019

It’s been a long time since the plan for a live-action Halo TV series was first announced. 5 years is a long time to wait. In all honesty there was a point where I didn’t think that it was actually going to happen, but here we are with some exciting news. Showtime has officially ordered 10 hour long episodes for the first season, with production set to begin sometime in 2019. The series comes from director Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), Kyle Killen (Awake), and Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment. There are so many exciting things that could be explored with this series, and I just hope that the people in charge have as much passion for this project as the fans have for the games. 

WTF Have they done to The ThunderCats???

So apparently there is a reboot of the ThunderCats coming to Cartoon Network and I’m gonna be honest here, it looks just terrible. Obviously this new cartoon series is not meant for fans of the original but rather a newer, younger generation of viewers. However, what they have turned this series into just looks plain insulting. I’m usually not the guy to just write things off completely until I’ve seen them, but Thunder Cats Roar is definitely a show that I will be avoiding like the plague. I think the worst part about it is that the creator of this series claims to be a fan of the original ThunderCats series and some how believes that he is paying homage to it with this new show. 

Bandai Mini Classic Voltron Figure

If you were a kid who grew up in the 80s or just a fan of the popular animated series Voltron then you have to check this out. Bandai has released a new mini-figure for pre-order that actually comes with 5 lions to combine into the defender of the universe Voltron or Beast King GoLion as he is known in Japan. Fully combined this figure stands at only approx. 7.1″ tall, but is still highly pose-able and very detailed. The paint scheme on this figure is nice and bright, and very reminiscent of the original animation. This new Voltron figure is going to be part of Bandai’s Shokugan Mini Pla series which means that the figures will have some die-cast in them.

Goodbye Moonmen – Rick and Morty

This is a little bit of a random post but it’s mainly because I told my wife that I want this song played at my funeral while being slowly lowered into the ground…No joke. For those of you that are fans (lets be honest who isn’t) of the animated, science fiction series Rick and Morty then this song will definitely sound familiar to you. However, if you have not seen this episode or for some reason haven’t watched the series, then let this little number wet your pallet. The song is titled Goodbye Moonmen and is featured in the 2nd episode of season 2, titled Mortynight Run. The song is sung by a gaseous being who assumes the name of Fart after meeting Rick and Morty. It’s absolute ridiculousness but it’s easily one of my favorite songs ever.
