Accel World is a series of ongoing Light Novels by the writer of Sword Art Online himself,Reki Kawahara. It has a manga adaptation and two spinoff manga, but that's not what I'm here to talk about tonight. (You can talk about them here too though, as this is another general topic of the series.) The story takes place in the year 2046. Haruyuki "Haru" Arita is a short fat boy who has low self esteem, due to the fact that he gets bullied day in and day out. Similar to how Kirito played games at first to escape the torment of the real world, Haru retreats to the Local Network of his school to play games by himself. This swiftly changes as his exceptional gaming skills catch the eye of the most popular girl in the school, Kuroyukihime (or Princess Snow Black). She invites him to participate in Brain Burst: a virtual reality fighting game where the stakes are high, the battles intense, and the rewards unimaginable. The plot centers around his adventures in the Accelerated World, along with his Kuroyukihime and his childhood friends Takumu and Chiyuri. There's a lot more to this world than meets the eye, and its connection to the futuristic real world provide the real dynamic of Brain Burst. I saw it when it first premiered, both the sub and dub. Personally, I have it as one of my favs. As a fan of the mecha genre, fighting games and futuristic settings, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The characters are quite interesting, and have some pretty good development. The animation is top notch with a ridiculously rich color palette, and the music is pretty sweet stuff. The world building in the show is surprisingly complex, with a pretty smart use of its futuristic technology. I highly recommend this show to anyone looking for a good time. ...So why am I making such a big deal about this show now? On April 6th, 2012, a good three months and a day before SAO first aired the series got an anime adaptation by Studio Sunrise. They've made a lot of fantastic stuff, such as Cowboy Bebop, Code Geass, and pretty much everything Gundam related. It was given a pretty good dub by Viz Media through Neon Alley in April of last year. And compared to the juggernaut that is Sword Art Online, it has been heavily overshadowed in terms of attention. It's almost like most people have already forgotten about it. I just want to give it justice, and I sincerely hope I have. Now discuss, and by MEGA LUCKY like Ash Roller here.
Yoshi's Woolly World (Available now on the Wii U, 3DS and in my veins! My bloodstream is woolly soft!)
YoshiUnity posted a topic in Video Gameshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wSJMjQAJjio YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! A new Yoshi game? Why thank you, Nintendo! Yes, if you have watched the recent Nintendo Direct, Iwatatatataaaaaaaaaaaa.... has just confirmed that Good Feel, the makers of Kirby Epic Yarn, is working on a new Yoshi title for the WiiU... Yoshi's Yarn Island! ...? Yoshi Land? Yoshi's Epic -- Oh whatever! A name wasn't really confirmed yet. But it's a new Yoshi title, and for that alone, it immediately grabbed my attention. I mean, I am a Yoshi fan after all. And I really hope that Good Feel does this game justice. This is my favorite character of all time they're dealing with here! Failure is NOT an option! ...Fucking Yoshi's Touch and go. (Yeah, I bought it full price! Leave me alone!) So what can be said about the game now? The yarn artstyle looks wonderful in HD, and unlike Kirby Epic Yarn, the backgrounds seem to expand to a 3D plane, instead of always looking like it's on a sheet of yarn or other fabric. I wonder what the deal is with Yoshi changing from just yarn strands to completely woven. I hope that indicates health and possible death. Despite enjoying Kirby's Epic Yarn, that was one thing I didn't care too much about it. Anyway, not much was really confirmed on the title at the moment, but we are bound to hear more later in the year! I know I'll be following closely until the game is released. You hear me Good Feel?! I'm watching you! I'm aaaaaaaalways watching... So don't do a bad job on this, okay? =D ...OKAY?! =D *Pauses to let subtle creepiness sink in. Grab a snack while it takes its time.* Anyway, discu-- WAIT! First, I must know! ...Do you give a fuck? Do you NOT give a fuck...? Quick! Click the spoiler tag! Okay. Now discuss!
