TL;DR Review

Season six of One Piece marked the end of the screenwriter Junki Takegami contribution to the TV series.

The animation is consistent with the previous season. From episode 169, there is a new intro theme “Bon Voyage” by Bon-Bon Blanco. It is decent, though not one of my favorite. The remaining three new ending themes are “Faith” by Ruppina, “A to Z” by ZZ, and “Tsuki to Taiyō” (月と太陽, lit. The Moon and The Sun) by shela. The stand out songs are “Faith” and “Tsuki to Taiyō”.

This season arc may have been stretched out a bit too thin as it is not one of my favorite arcs. I prefer a shorter arc but this was the beginning of Toei Animation super long arcs and filler strategy.

Since the last season was all filler episodes, this season, surprisingly, contain no filler episodes. This is rather a long season with a long story arc. This season we got introduced to a few major characters like Black Beard, and some minor one like “Bellamy the Hyena”.

If you’re a One Piece fan, I know you are going to be watching this no matter what I say. Most of the sub-plots in the Sky Island are quite forgettable. One Piece contains moderate graphic violence and suggestive themes/dialogs. Intended for young adults.

Spriggan (1998) Movie Review

Spriggan was initially released as Striker in the North American English translation, as it is the English translation of the word “Spriggan” from Cornish.

Many years ago, an ancient civilization known for their advanced technology once ruled Earth, but were destroyed in the end by their misuse. So, they left messages for later generations in the form of indestructible message plates written in ancient Hebrew, informing them that if they could not find a good use for their creations, they should be destroyed. Various paramilitaries, national armies, and armed private forces began to secretly search for these “mysterious artifacts” in order to be used for their own good and against their enemies. The ARCAM Corporation and their military arm, the ARCAM Private Army, can stop these forces from destroying themselves with their elite secret agents known as Spriggans (or Strikers). The film in an adaptation of the Noah’s Ark story.

Code Geass Season 1 Review

On August 10th, 2010 the Holy Empire of Britannia began a campaign of conquest, its sights set on Japan. Deploying a humanoid weapon dubbed Knightmare Frame, Japan was quickly conquered, its rights and identity stripped away, the once proud nation now referred to as Area 11. Its citizens, Elevens, now forced to scratch out a living while the Brits live comfortably within their settlements. Pockets of resistance appear throughout Area 11, working towards independence for Japan, although without much success. However, the world’s destiny changes as Lelouch, an exiled Imperial Prince of Britannia posing as a student, finds himself in the heart of the ongoing conflict. Through a chance meeting with a mysterious girl named C.C., Lelouch gains a mysterious power called Geass. Equipped with the power of the king, Lelouch may finally realize his dream of bringing Britannia down to its knees!
