Remember when I made this post a few weeks ago? Well the new schedule begins next week and I’ve finally got all the shows I want to review ready to go and everything is scheduled out all the way to mid December. Whew! Like I said, I like reviewing shows because I like writing and getting my thoughts out there – and it really helps a ton when I need a study break or two. It’s a bit of a rigid schedule and I’m not entirely convinced it won’t lead to my doom, but finding out should be tons of fun! Of all the shows I’m reviewing, I only picked one show that I actually haven’t seen yet because…it’s hard for me to find shows I haven’t seen yet. My criteria for these shows was basically anything that I thought would make people want to see new episode after new episode because the shows is just that addictive…and the show I’ve never seen before. They’re all older shows, yeah, I think they need much more exposure than they get and this is my way of hopefully getting at least a handful of fans into the shows as well.
Thanks to DC, we once again have a fairly straightforward reading guide for the upcoming crossover story arc featuring the four Green Lantern titles. Supposedly this series sees the introduction of a new main character in the main Green Lantern title. The story arc has been building since Green Lantern Corps 3, when the Corps discover a new threat and murmurings of a third army are heard.

It’s been announced that Kamen Rider GIRLS, the band formed in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the franchise, will be adding a new member soon. The band is currently made up of six members, each representing a various Kamen Rider from the Heisei era – though the Ryuki girl has been absent for the last year due to health issues. When Kamen Rider Fourze began, the sixth member was added to the band, based on the then current Kamen Rider, Fourze. That pattern will continue and the band will see a seventh member added shortly after the start of the new series Kamen Rider Wizard based on…you guessed it, Wizard. The member will be announced on September 5th during a celebration of Kamen Rider music.
Cartoon Network has released a few shorts online that have been a part of their DC Nation programming block. The shorts, called “Bat Man of Shanghai” is a three-part series with each segment focusing on a different character. Set in what seems to be China circa 1930, we follow a chase scene involving Catwoman, Bane, and of course, Batman himself. The art style is rather striking with sharp yet sketchy lines and fluid motion. There have been different attempts at “anime-fying” the Dark Knight (that’s a word, you can friggin’ look it up!), but this one seems the most eye-popping and yet the most natural. It’s not generic like most anime and the fight scenes are so stylized that it draws you in immediately.
But, you gotta check it out yourself to see what I mean. Honestly, I hope we see more animation in this style from DC Nation. It may fit the most with Batman’s style, but it would be awesome to see other DC heroes brought on screen with this art style. Maybe the Justice League? Green Lantern? Ohh! Green Arrow!!! Okay, maybe Batman is the one that makes the most sense with this. But still! It would be cool to see more of anything animated like this. It’s pretty awesome.

Here we are, 26 episodes into Zyuranger and it’s time once again for another quarterly review. This quarter of the show has given us Burai, a new Guardian Beast, and a new villain in the form of Lami. In the last 13 episodes, we’ve seen serious episodes, silly episodes, downright bizarre episodes, and a few other cool things. How have they fared compared to the first 13 and on their own? Let’s find out! Continue reading
