Sailor Moon Volume 8 Review!

Published February 4, 2014 by Shay Taree

So like many others I was so excited to find out that the Sailor Moon manga was being re released so I of course have been buying each volume. So here is my review about Volume 8.

Volume 8 was well really good. Reading it brought back memories of me watching it happen in the anime but this was so much better. You have Pharaoh 90 taking over Hotaru’s body but Hotaru is trying to fight back as well as keep safe the soul of Chibi Usa and also the legendary silver crystal.

Then the souls of the sailor scouts are then taken as well but Hotaru is about the keep them safe as well and keep them from being absorbed.

There was only one thing I didn’t like about the manga and it’s just that the attack names can definitely sometimes be very ridiculous. I mean one of Jupitar’s attacks has the word coconut in it. Just plain weird!

But the manga also had it’s sad and sweet moment when Sailor Uranus, Sailor Neptune, and Sailor Pluto leave and say goodbye and with them is a baby Sailor Saturn who help them to of course save the planet. It was a really sweet moment when they said they would all raise and definitely had me saying awwww since baby Sailor Saturn looked so cute!

But anyway definitely check out the manga if you haven’t already and now I’m reading volume 9 so look for that review soon.

Goku’s Mother Revealed!

Published February 3, 2014 by Shay Taree

Like many others I watched Dragon Ball Z as a kid and while his father has been introduced his mother has not. It even left me wondering if Goku even had a mother.

Well he does and Dragon Ball creator revealed who she was in the March 2024 issue of Saikyo Jump. Now from what I read this is ahead of schedule since she is set to appear in the release of his volume one collection of works which is set to be released in April.

Goku’s mother name is Gine and she was on Bardock’s squad. They end up having an unconventional relationship when Bardock’s protects her on the battle field. Gine’s personality is said to actually be gentle which is weird considering that she is a Saiyan. But I can’t wait to see what she looks like and I’m hoping that since she is now revealed that there will be some sort on anime made from it. I’m thinking maybe something about how her and Bardock met. That would be awesome! Also if you want to read about this yourself go on and go to their news section.

Aiura Anime Review

Published February 2, 2014 by Shay Taree

I watched this anime quote a bit ago but it still one anime that I think about maybe re watching from time to time. The reason because I did see how great a gem this anime really is and it makes me wish that it was actually even longer or possibly had a second season.

The best way to explain Aiura is that it’s seems like the combination of Hetalia and Lucky Star. Similar to Hetalia Aiura is only 5 minutes long per episodes and like Lucky Star it’s around a group of girls and the day to day mayhem they encounter while in high school. This show is beyond funny and had me laughing from the first episode and even from time to time wondering why I was even watching this. But anyway I loved it all the same.

This is great anime to watch is you just want to watch something that’s funny and you can watch really quickly. I finished this series in one day which was great since I happened to watch it on my day off. But still I’m begging the creators to make another season of this since it was so damn funny!!!!
