Why I love All-Might

All-Might, the symbol of peace and number one hero in My Hero Academia. He is the 7th user of the quirk One-For-All and mentor to Izuku Midoriya (aka best boy). I feel like the old over powered mentor trope has been used a lot throughout shonen anime especially with people like Master Roshi and Jiraya in Dragon Ball and Naruto respectively. Even though the idea of All-Might isn't exactly original because he's basically a more interesting Superman, but All-Might as a character is definitely very original. There's just something about him that puts a smile on the faces of not just the people in the show but also the viewers everywhere watching. Whenever he is on screen and you hear that hearty triumphant laugh and his signature theme song, you know things are gonna be all right. Toshinori Yagi better known as All Might may be the symbol of peace in the eyes of many citizens in the My Hero Academia world but he does have a secret that the world must never know about.

Cells at Work: The new and possibly better Ozzy and Drix

Do you guys remember the movie Osmosis Jones. It was a fairly decent movie about the inside of a very disgusting guy played by Bill Murray. It was about a white blood cell named Osmosis Jones aka Ozzy and his new partner, a pill named Drix ( I'm not sure how long the effects of a pill are supposed to last in the human body but I'm pretty sure Drix is an immortal pill). It followed Ozzy and Drix while they investigate a virus that has entered Bill Murray. Now imagine 13+ years later a manga artist named Akane Shimizu decided to make a manga about the day to day adventures of a stoic white blood cell and a ditzy and adorable red blood cell who is terrible at her job. Thus we have cells at work, one of the most popular anime of summer 2018.   Now before I begin talking about what I like about Cells at work, I'm going to do a little comparison between the two.  Much like Ozzy and Drix, Cells at Work has a monster of the week type plot with each monster being a different

My Top 10 favorite anime of all time

My Top 10 favorite anime of all time I began watching anime at a pretty young age when my dad showed me Dragonball Z on Toonami when I was 6. Ever since then it has helped shaped me into the nerd that I am today so this list will be counting down my 10 favorite anime of all time. This list is in no particular order, its mainly just a list of shows that I've seen and that have really stuck out to me.   #10  Guilty Crown   This show is probably the first show to ever make me cry (well not actually cry but dang it I was about to). I watched this back in 2015 and I haven't really re watched it ever since but it's still etched into my memory. There were plenty of moments that made me want to throw my laptop across my room in sheer anger but none the less I really enjoyed this show . #9  My Hero Academia   Now before you get upset in the comments section, this list is not in any particular order. My Hero Academia is currently my favorite anime this season wh

Anchorman: The greatest movie of all time.

Anchorman: The greatest movie of all time Now I know what you may be thinking; "Anchorman got a 66% on rotten tomatoes, it's not even that good." While objectively Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy is in no way a masterpiece but subjectively, I love it. I've seen my fair share of comedies over the years with some being good ( Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spaceballs, and Hot Fuzz) and others being terrible ( Master of Disguise, Jack and Jill, and Soul Plane) and from that large mass of comedies, one movie has stood out to me and has solidified itself as my favorite movie of all time; Anchorman. There's just something about this movie that makes me want to watch it over and over and over again and not get tired of it. I've bought Blu-Ray copies of both Anchorman 1 and the sequel which I will talk about at a later time, and I've watched it enough times that I've been able to naturally use quotes from the movie in everyday conversations ( a f

Scott Pilgrim Fights in ten words or less

Scott Pilgrim vs The World is without a doubt one of my favorite movies of all time. After watching it for the 15th time last night and reading the comics for the first time, I decided to review each fight in the movie in 10 words or less. Matthew Patel: a Brilliant fight that helps kick off the plot. Lucas Lee: Captain America cascades down a cold rail to climactic demise. Todd Ingram: Scott pulls the 'ole switcheroo on vegan, plus bass battle Roxanne Richter: Ramona whips out giant hammer for an epic duel Katayanagi Twins: Twin dragons vs giant yeti proves to be very underwhelming Gideon round 1: amazing fight choreography but not that amazing Gideon round 2: friggin amazing with a beautiful tag team fight at the end Now its time to figure out which fight exactly is the best fight in the entire movie on a scale from one to ten. Katayanagi Twins: 6/10 not a bad fight but it felt rushed and the musical kaiju fight could've been better Roxanne Richter: 7/10 h
