The Lego Batman Movie Review

The loss of Adam West few weeks ago was a devastating moment for everyone; Adam brought Batman to life in the 60s. I was impacted slightly hard as my grandfather also passed away at the age of 88 earlier this year. On the bright side, I finally watched The Lego Batman Movie. I lost my chance to watch it on the big screen last time as being a college student with no transport and data is hell. I waited approximately 4 months and a few weeks for Kiss Cartoon to have the HD version of the movie.  *sigh* I know… I know…

The overall story plot for the movie was enjoyable and fun, I did briefly watch Batman the brave and the bold to know his rouges gallery villains and as a Batman fan, I recognize all of them. I enjoy all the jokes implemented in the movie itself about the whole Batman history from the darks days until the current DCEU era, like super homage to the history of the cape crusader! Woo~

My favorite part of the whole movie would be the infiltration of the fortress of solitude, which turns out that Batman, was not invited to the 75th anniversary of the Justice League party by superman. The whole movie was a typical Joker VS Batman story with a bunch of jokes and references thrown into the movie. I genuinely sympathizes Joker when Batman said he was not his biggest enemy. That is just ouch to the heart. I also enjoy all the nerdy references thrown in the movie from other big fandoms.

I highly recommend this movie to all the Batman fans out there to enjoy this movie. For all the geeks out there and have not watch the movie, you are wasting time. Go watch it ~

It was pure coincidence when I chose to watch the movie ON THE 20th Anniversary of Harry Potter. I was also stoked that the villains that joker recruited are all the villains from other popular fandoms, like LOTR, HP, Doctor Who etc. I was fangirling non stop when I heard the iconic voice of the daleks. Although most of the dialogues are cheesy, the best one liner would be the password scene, it’s throwing shade to iron man. hahahahahaha

 

全职高手 Review

Last week, one of the most unique non Japanese anime had ended, and I managed to watch the last episode yesterday.  全职高手(Pin Yin: Quan Zhi Gao Shou) also known as The King’s Avatar for Western fans is a novel from China by the author ‘蝴蝶蓝‘ took the anime world by surprise as the 1st anime that had been developed and made in China. Some weebs are salty about this I know…. Being multilingual, I really enjoyed this series; the RAW for this series is an advantage since I am pure Chinese and speaks fluent Chinese, their jokes that only Chinese speakers understand is really unavoidable.

Moving on, the story of Quan Zhi Gao Shou is about E-Sports which in reality is slowly getting recognition *cough* Dota 2 *cough* Overwatch *cough* Ye Xiu is a pro gamer for the game ‘Glory’, he was forced to terminate his contract with his E-sports team for unknown reasons. He camped at the nearby Cyber Café and worked there as the supervisor for the café, as Glory launched a new server the 10th server; he went back to the game and all thins excited start from there.

Quan zhi Gao Shou has the official sponsor of McDonald’s China to do some product placement in the series, they even made the limited edition ice-cream a reality. Anywho, Quan Zhi Gao Shou had one of the most eye catching animation style; the standard was indeed Japanese animation standard. I was a bit turned off with the 3D animation sequence for some scenes. It was not really necessary to use 3D. As for the opening and ending, I am very impressed. The opening was awesome, the opening song ‘信仰’ fits it well, the song was really powerful. As for the ending, I really loved it. Unlike the usual Japanese kind, with MV style sequnce. Quan Zhi Gao Shou featured fanarts of the series by various artists that loved the series. That is a top notch level of fan appericiation. giphy

Do support the actually work which is the novel, although it is in Chinese. There is a website provides the translated chapters. http://gravitytales.com/novel/the-kings-avatar bear in mind the updates are slow, as there are 1000+ Chapters to be translated. I personally recommend this series for you all to have a change of pace.

    As I mentioned there would be some salty weebs be like ‘ Ewwe, anime characters is speaking Chinese. That’s disgusting’ ‘Anime is supposed to be Japanese NOT Chinese’. Doesn’t really understand that animation has no limitation to what country produces it. I spent 2 years in West Malaysia due to college, I was surprised to see cosplayers that cosplayed as the Characters BEFORE the anime even aired! If you haven’t give this a try, go watch it. Don’t worry about the subbing, your normal streaming website had already got it covered. Not sure about Crunchyroll though… Now, I need to finish StarMyu~ ❤

Stay Awesome potatots!

Souryo to Majiwaru no Yoru Ni Review

Hey Potatots! Spring season is almost ending, I just finished Souryo to Majiwaru. THE ONLY anime I spent time watch from my hectic working time. I guess I am turning into THAT demographic of women. /deep sigh

My life has lost its meaning in the hentai spectrum of anime. Souryo to Majiwaru no Yoru Ni (SouMaji) that is a long ass name and I REFUSE TO CALL IT BY THE ENGLISH name has ended today, I really loved this series as it is tailor made for us thirsty single girls with a sexually frustrated sex life. And, yes I just said it with no regrets.  I will now wait for the full hentai one.

The story of SouMaji tells the story of Fukatani Mio and her crush, Kujo Takahide. Mio met Takahide at their high school reunion; she was turned off by the harsh reality of him being a monk and got wasted. The story does not end there, as she walked home completely wasted Takahide helped her and shit got down from there. I am not spoiling any hentai moments go watch it yourself, IF you need sauce for the uncut one Just ask from me. ;D

The manga for SouMaji is still on going and I am dying to find the sauces both RAW and Translated. (Bilingual advantages) The manga is saucer than the anime like oh my gawd, there are more hentai scenes there. ^ q ^ I’ll leave the link to the manga here, https://nhentai.net/artist/maomi-leon/ (RAW) http://www.dm5.com/manhua-yusenglvjiaohedeseyuzhiye/ (Translated, Chinese), I can’t spoil much for this series because it will ruin the story by 80%.

JUST GO WATCH IT!

Wonder Woman Review

Warning: Mild spoilers, but not too many. 😉

Picture this, a female superhero as strong as Superman; promotes female empowerment; being the role model for countless girls all around the world. Just like Superman for boys, who do you have in mind? No doubt, Wonder Woman is on your mind right?

For quite sometimes, DC had been questionable with the Live Action adaptions for the awesome superheroes. *cough* Dark Days of Batman *cough* however, during 2016 they tried to redeem themselves with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, and… that had some mix reviews. The only best part of the whole movie would be, Wonder Woman. She kick ass in the movie. Now, 2017 she has her own movie; it was awesome AF.

The movie for Wonder Woman was on par with DC’s animated movies, it had a fair share of action and witty jokes. How Wonder Woman was depicted on the big screen, it was well did and amazing. What stood out the most from the movie would be The Lasso of Truth scene, to some people they would beg to differ on the best scene would be the fight between Ares. Everyone has different taste and opinion.

The reason for Lasso of Truth being a one of a kind scene, this weapon was not really known to surface fans of Wonder Woman. In DC’s animated universe, the Lasso was not really used by Wonder Woman. *Wink* Justice League Animated Series *Wonk* the times the Lasso was used would be in Justice League VS Teen Titans movie and the 2009 animated movie for Wonder Woman. Lasso of Truth, a weaponry from Wonder Woman’s arsenal of weapons. The Lasso had the ability for the person bounded by it to tell the whole truth about themselves. Which in the real world, our world would be a pain in the ass.

I’ll just stop here, wouldn’t want to spoil the whole movie for y’all, I’m not that kind of person.

On the scale of 1 to 10, how would I rate Wonder Woman to convince you all to watch the movie? I’d say, 100000000000000000. Just go watch the movie. It’s AWESOME!

I had a blast watching Wonder Woman, Gal is just so fabulous. I can’t wait for her in Justice League this November. The Harry Potter Alumni all went to DC, the first was Sirius, he became Commissioner Gordon for The Dark Knight trilogy from Christopher Nolan. Next is Draco, he stop being a pure blood and decided to be a muggle for The Flash TV series from CW. Lastly, Lupin had joined the party. I was able to recognize him immediately, I guess my Harry Potter fandom genes are not dead yet.  I wonder who would be be the next in line to hop over to the muggle world? I might be going to watch Wonder Woman a second time. I am demanding a Black Canary appearance for the next Justice League Movie.

Young Justice Review

It’s JUNE! Which means WONDER WOMAN movie is out! I am so excited! And, I am still recovering from the Guardians of The Galaxy Vol.2 aftershock. The movie came out during my birthday, April 27th. And, I only watched it A MONTH AFTER IT Lel, back to topic. I had two days off from May 30th – 31st thanks to the Harvest Festival in my hometown, SUCK ON THAT WEST MALAYSIANS! That’s immature of me I spent my two days off binge watching Young Justice. Yes, it took me 8 years to watch this awesome series.

Young Justice is part of the DC comics universe for TV shows on Cartoon Network and has no cannon relations with any shows like Teen Titans, Justice League or any other DC shows on CN, maybe except Teen Titans Go! who knows. The story line for Young Justice is good and interesting it could be more if they did not rush on character development.  It really bugs me that Miss Martian and Superboy’s relationship went too fast and went down hill faster, it’s really confusing for me. In addition, Wally  aka Kid Flash is also a character that was a bit disappointing, his development did not bring up his full potential. Can’t really blame the production team for doing that to him.  The only character that has good and decent character development is Miss Martian, season 1 she was a bit awkward and new to human lifestyle. It’s just a bit unfair to other characters to be treated like rag dolls with their character traits.

The only thing that bug me the most is the HUGE time gap from Season 1 to Season 2. Everything happened so fast and what ever things that had happened in the middle was not really explained. It’s very hard to piece things up with things unexplained, now season 3 is in the making I hope it takes things slower this time.

Young Justice is a undoubtedly way better than Teen Titans Go! For mature and older watchers for CN, I am seriously excited for season 3 with some hope for – Rekindled relationship of Miss Martian and Superboy, PLEASE take it slow this time. The return of Wally West, YOU CAN’T JUST LET HIM DIE LIKE THAT! It’s comic books for fucks sake, everyone dies but not really unless you are friends with Peter Parker. Now, I shall continue Teen Titans as I await Young Justice Season 3 for next year.

Question: Which Speedy is the most handsome? Young Justice or Teen Titans?

Riverdale Review

Riverdale had officially ended and it was one hell of a ride from a murder mystery introduction to a show full of secrets, although Riverdale is based on the ever-popular Archie Comics.  The show itself is dark AF. As a long time Archie fan myself, I instantly click with the series as it brings back memories watching the Archie cartoons on TV. To be honest, I am a bit shocked about the casting for all the characters, since almost everyone in Archie is 100% white and only Pops is a character of color alongside one of Josie’s friend.

It had been a long time since I last read an Archie Comics comic book, the Riverdale storyline is an independent storyline from the canon storyline, since 80% of the plot is uncanny. I got WTF every time new information spewed out of nowhere as what I remembered from the comics never happened. Overall, Riverdale is special in its own way; I absolutely adored the series until the end since the murder mystery game is just like playing Scooby Doo. Honestly, if there was an institute to train people to be sleuths I will not hesitate to sign up.

The characters from Riverdale had gone through puberty like some sort of radiation mutation process, since in the comics they were very different, especially Archie. He had the most change in the series. Since my childhood, my favorite character had always been Jughead Jones. He is just cute in his own way, however I just do not like Reggie from back then to now; he is just an ass to everyone. Between Betty and Veronica, Betty is my best girl. Veronica is just a bitch in both the cartoon and the comics. However, I had no recollection of Cheryl Blossom and her brother Jason; for I never bothered to continue the comics since it is quite expensive to buy at my place due to the exchange rate of USD and MYR.

Moving on, for non-Archie Comics fans I suggest you to read some wiki information about the background of the characters in Riverdale that would give you a 50% legitimate info about this series as a whole. The tone of the series is somewhat melancholy to fit the angsty tone, how the TV series was portrayed contributes to how we prescribe the series. I enjoyed all 13 episodes of the series and kept wanting more each week, now more secrets are revealed; I can’t wait for season 2. The murder of Jason Blossom in the series was really a roller coaster ride for his comic book information was not canny with the TV show.  As this is a spoiler free review, I will not leak out any information of the series except mentioning the murder of Jason.

Riverdale is one of my top recommendations for TV series alongside The Flash, Arrow, Super girl, Supernatural etc. I may sound bias, as I mentioned Archie was part of my childhood; Riverdale is just nostalgia. Do watch Riverdale if you haven’t watch it yet. You will not regret choosing it.

Beauty and The Beast (2017) Review

It’s MAY! And, this is the first review of the month! YAYYYYYYYY!!!!! I haven’t been doing any review lately except for the review for Teen Titans: The Judas Contract, yea….It’s my current favorite at the moment. Anywho, I finally watched the over hyped movie Beauty and The Beast (2017) last weekend. I got free movie tickets from my work place.

I grew up with the original Beauty and The Beast from Disney, it was my 2nd favorite first being Mulan. (HA! Asian priorities. The animated movie from 1991 is already good enough for a girl growing up with Disney. The songs are always my favorite, my no.1 would always be ‘Be Our Guest’ not everyday you would see a talking candle stick singing about hospitality. It’s always amusing to hear that song. The animated version would always be the best in my heart.

Now, 2017 a lot of crazy stuff are happening and it’s not going to be pleasant on my feeling. I lost my grandpa a few weeks ago and I am coping with the loss while I just want to forget about the pain my ‘friends’ gave me from college. My internship actually helped, It’s hard that you have to hold your anger when they are around. Moving on, Beauty and the beast was amazing both cinematography and the story line. Most of the plot holes from 1991 were answered except that they changed the story line a little. I really enjoy the focus on the enchantress herself, she wasn’t really explained in the 1991 version.

There are two generations of girls that knew Emma Watson, the first gen would be the Harry Potter generation me and the current generation, the beauty and the beast generation. To be honest, it is hard for me to unsee Emma as Hermione when she started talking in the movie. She did a great job as Belle although her dress was a bit underwhelmed for me. As for the beast, no words could I describe him; although it’s a turn off for me when I saw his tail. IT. IS. NOT. FLOOFY. ENOUGH!!!!

All in all, Beauty and The Beast is perfection! I would rewatch it again and again. 😀

 

Teen Titans: The Judas Contract Review

Hey guys! It’s Superhero month! April is loaded with awesome Superhero movies, from GoTG Vol.2 coming out in a few weeks. Last two days, the long awaited latest Teen Titans movie – Teen Titans: The Judas Contract was out. I managed to watch it today. How do I describe it? Two words, SUPER AWESOME! Fans of the Teen Titans cartoon or comic in general would love it. I love it as well, as both TT fan and reviewer.

Judas contract took place post VS Justice League and was the introduction to Terra, who was first introduced in the post credit scene in VS Justice League. Judas Contract follows the story line of the comic arc with the same name. The whole movie was just perfect and amazing that, I personally suggests that this would be your no.1 choice at the moment. Since this is a spoiler free review and most of you all have yet to watch Judas Contract, all I can say the ship for Dick and Kory is so strong, I almost lost it every time they interact with each other.

So for those that wanted to watch this movie, GO DO IT! YOU WON’T REGRET A CENT!

Bungou Stray Dogs Review

       2016 gave us lots of surprises both good and bad. Before Baked Potatoes end 2016, this is the last Fall 2016 anime review. See you all in 2017.*\(^o^)/*

 Bungou Stray Dogs tells the story of humans with special abilities and their day to day antics. It is a mix of both comedy and action. The series centralizes on Nakajima Atsushi, an orphan who had to fend for himself after his orphanage disowned him. Atsushi had pretty much a shitty life until he met the Armed Detective Agency members. He had the ability to transform himself into a tiger without himself knowing. He is stuck with the ADA for the rest of his life and had to deal with thier semi retarded antics thanks to Dazai Osamu. He also have to fend for himself from the dangerous Port Mafia who are also after his head for the 7 million bounty he had. And, that is just season 1.

Moving on to season 2, Yokohama City is in danger from the North American group, The Guild as they have plans to harm the city and its innocent residents. The guild is also responsible for putting the 7 million bounty on Atsushi. As for the 2nd season, we got a lot of surprises. For new BSD fans like myself, we get to learn more about Dazai and his past of being an Ex-Port Mafia ranked member. We also get to see our beloved characters grow. Just like Yuri on Ice, BSD is a good anime for motivation and inspiration. I do believe that we all have been in Atsushi’s shoes.

Overall, Bungou is an awesome anime and it had my full support for a must have  Season 3.

 How I got to love BSD is a funny story,  I had known the series since January and I had been a HUGE fan of Kishow Taniyama and I was excited that he was voice for a character and that character became my husband instantly, I waited 9 episode straight for him in season 1, 5-7 episode for him in season 2. And, that character is Nakahara Chuuya. I really hope season 3 will happen.

Yuri!!! on Ice Review

As 2016 will be ending in a few days, we all know that it had been a shitty year for almost everyone. Including myself, although 2016 is a fucked up year; but there is a sliver lining to save us from eternal remorse. And, that is the existence of Yuri!!! on Ice.

The whole concept of YoI is figure skating and promoting it through the most popular medium amongst youngsters – ACG (Anime, Comics & Games). YoI talks about a rookie skater, Katsuki Yuuri and his experience as a figure skater. He had depression after losing at the Sochi winter sports,  he rage quitted and went back to Japan an sulk. While he was back in Japan, he visited the old skating rink back there and miraculously skated his idol, Viktor Nikiforov’s regiment and it went viral on the net. After that whole viral video incident, he got a surprise visit from Viktor and he is determined to be his coach. Through Viktor; Yuuri got to explore himself more as a skater, he also met a lot of new friends along the way. YoI is a good anime for people to be encouraged and needed moral support.

In addition, the musical scores for all the skaters are AMAZING! I loved it very much especially Eros & Agape. And Emile’s techno theme. the songs are really relaxing and enjoyable.

    YoI had a really out of control fandom, which made me want to leave the fandom. I know it had A LOT OF FAN SERVICE, PLEASE LEAVE REAL LIFE SKATERS OUT OF IT! Especially Yuzuru Hanyu. I don’t get why those fans can’t differentiate FICTION and REALITY. It really pissed me off. I personally don’t like to watch figure skating, but through YoI; I decided to give IRL figure skating a try. And, boy… Those skaters trained hard to achieved what they wanted, and asking someone to lose weight for a particular sports IS NOT FAT SHAMING! I have friends who do sports and they MUST be in tip top shape to do so. MY GOD, PEOPLE STOP BEING SO PARANOID! I honestly wish those fans could be more mature in seeing the sports world, I myself don’t do sports but I know how athletes must train their asses off. Immature fans, please grow up.
