There has been a rumour circulating the internet since 2012/2013 where it is alleged that the controversial Feminist Frequency host, Anita Sarkeesian, will be acting as an advisor on the sequel to the bargain-bin priced Mirrors Edge. As far as we could track, the rumour seems to have begun life as a Destructoid posting, stating that she will be acting as a consult to the game. Since then, other sites had picked up on the rumour and it resurfaced majorly in 2013. In the Change.org petition, an account called Electronic Arts with the EA logo has responded. It has responded thus: This petition is based on inaccurate information. EA is not working with Anita Sarkeesian on development of Mirror’s Edge. … Continue reading
As a lot of Bayonetta fans are blatantly aware, there is an Anime adaptation of the Bayonetta storyline as a film called Bayonetta: Bloody Fate. The film adaptation very loosely follows the storyline of the first video game in the Bayonetta series, Bayonetta. The story follows the journey of an Umbran Witch, named Bayonetta, as she travels to the city of Vigrid to unlock her forgotten memories. The adaptation is animated by GONZO and released by Madman Entertainment here in Australia. In Bayonetta: Bloody Fate we follow Bayonetta, a femme fatale Umbran Witch with no memory of her past that has begun to make a living by clearing out Angels during funerals at the request of Enzo, a mafia-esque figure. … Continue reading
Hellsing Ultimate is one of the longest running OVA series that we know of. The series is known as Hellsing in Japan, but has been renamed to Hellsing Ultimate in English to avoid confusion to the 90s anime series by the same name. In the original Hellsing series, the story followed Alucard and the rest of the Hellsing organisation in an original story, whereas, Hellsing Ultimate follows the plot of the manga series much more closely. In these two OVA episodes, the Hellsing organisation concludes its battle against the Nazi “Millenium” regime of 1000 paratrooper soldiers and their supernatural undead abilities. Previously in the Hellsing story, the Hellsing organisation has encountered a few organisations to do with the occult, vampires … Continue reading
Otorimonogatari is the next chapter in the Monogatari Second Season as part of the Bakemonogatari franchise from SHAFT and released in Australia by Hanabee. This particular story in the series focuses on the character Nadeko, the younger friend of Koyomi’s sisters, who also happens to have a crush on him. This is one of the stories that focuses less on Koyomi, and more on the life of a side-character. This particular story is 4 episodes in length, which makes it about average for stories told in the Monogatari Second Season. The storyline in Otorimonogatari follows Nadeko, a shy girl that is friends with Koyomi’s younger sisters and first appeared in the Bakemonogatari story involving a curse with a snake spirit … Continue reading
Madoka Magica is probably one of the biggest anime franchises in the anime industry at the moment. While it isn’t the biggest in length or merchandise, it is certainly one of the biggest due to how it is received by anime fans, casual viewers and how almost everyone has an opinion on Madoka Magica. The series itself is a Magical Girl series, focusing a group of magical girls that hunt down witches to protect people from their harmful effects. However, unlike most Magical Girl series’, the Madoka Magica series is well known for its dark themes and a more realistic look at the effects of a Magical Girl on the world. Madoka Kaname is an ordinary highschool girl that soon … Continue reading
Cardfight!! Vanguard is the Anime series based on the Bushiroad card game of the same name. The series is a collaboration between the president of Bushiroad, the author of Yu-Gi-Oh! R and that one guy that worked on that one card game Anime series that was pretty terrible back in the mid 2000s, Duel Masters. This part of the series, part 4, focuses on the regional tournament of Japan, where our team of Vanguard players face off against some strong opponents and rather risky odds. This part follows directly after the third part of the series and is still following the first arc of the Cardfight!! Vanguard anime. Cardfight!! Vanguard follows the story of Aiichi Sendou and his team of … Continue reading
As we have previously written, we’ve been attending the Sydney Manga and Anime SHow!, or SMASH!, convention this weekend which was held at Rosehill Gardens. The convention itself is dedicated to the culture of Anime, Manga and other things Japanese, as well as the people that partake in that culture within Australia. This year is the first year that the show has been held across two days, and so it had a slightly more prolonged feel to it. Yesterday, The Consultant was in attendance at the event, today, was I! Anime Ninja! Kwacha! One of the first things we did at the show was check out all of the panels that we wanted to cover at the show. Fortunately for … Continue reading
