Dragonball Z: Fusion Reborn

dbz fusion reborn

All hell basically breaks loose as a new entity emerges in the afterlife, busting the barrier between HELL and the living world. This means many of the familiar Z rogues have returned to Earth including Frieza, Bojack, The Ginyu Force, and Cell ( and a hilarious caricature of Adolf Hitler) and it’s up to Gohan, Videl, Goten, and Trunks to stop them. Meanwhile, in the afterlife, Goku finds a fat, yellow, baby like dimension warping creature called Janemba is the source of the commotion. Using the full power of Super Saiyan 3 he puts Janemba down, or so he thinks. Janemba returns in a sleek, more malevolent form and quickly overpowers Goku’s SS3 form. The only solution is to fuse with Vegeta through the fusion dance, which they’ve never done before. Can our heroes get there shit together and beat this dimension shattering foe?

Fusion Reborn is probably my favorite movie from the DragonBall Z: The Buu Saga era. The fights are badass and Janemba is a strange but fitting fiend I prefer over Buu if I’m going to be honest. Seeing other DBZ villains return was awesome and the Hitler cameo was easily one of the funniest moments I recall from anime. My only real gripe is that once Gogeta shows up,  Janemba is finished in about 3 seconds, feeling way too abrupt for my taste. Fusion Reborn is a cool, pretty badass movie I recommend to any DBZ fan. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

5 Best Written Characters on Television

As always with my list, they aren’t in any real order. They simply get tossed on here in whatever order I feel like putting them on here. For me to get tossed on this list they just have to be characters I enjoyed that seem either realistic or just all together interesting.

Al Bundy of Why Married With Children Wouldn’t Work In 2019 is easily on this list because he comes across as an everyday man. He works at a shoe store, his wife and kids annoy the hell out of him. He more or less reminds you of a lot of older guys you know that are just generally sick of life, except much more exaggerated.

Lucifer Morningstar of Lucifer Season One is possibly my favorite on this list because he represents a side of the bible many people never stop to think of. That may be the devil (who is an angel himself) isn’t so evil as he is simply misunderstood. He is given a personality but it isn’t perfect, he is, for example, egotistical and oblivious much of the time. He is not only well written he is also quite unique.

Norm Peterson from cheers is another character I always loved simply because of how realistic he is. Come on, let us be honest. We all know at least one functional alcoholic that goes to the bar and everyone knows him and probably has a favorite seat. That is actually a good chunk of my family weirdly.

Angel (Season one) is another character I always enjoy because of how well he grows from his time on Buffy until the end of his own show Angel. His character growth is just always fun to watch and while maybe not the best show ever his character itself is worth checking out.

Lorelai Gilmore is possibly my favorite on this list if I am being honest. Her relationship with Luke alone is worth watching the show for, and she is also another great example of an exaggerated figure that we all know. She is a silly and crazy single mother that loves her coffee a little too much that can kind of a be a bitch. She also happens to be pretty hot so that helps.

So what do you guys think? What are some of your favorites? Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Star Wars: The Mandalorian trailer

So D23 was this weekend and we got some big Star Wars news, including two trailers dropped. The Mandalorian on Disney+ is pretty much looking to be a show about the bounty hunters of the Star Wars universe ( for casual fans, Mandalorians are the race and enemies of the Jedi that Jango and Boba Fett belong to, hence the main character’s garb.) While the trailer doesn’t give many plot keys, I do like the western vibe and the main character does look like a badass. It looks like it’s shaping up to be a cool show. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

DragonBall Z: The Buu Saga

dbz 8
The greatest foe the Z fighters have face to this day is revealed at the end of Dragonball Z: Buu Saga (Tournament) and the Supreme Kai and his assistant have enlisted the help of Goku and his friends to save the universe before it’s too late. A dark wizard created a magical being called Buu that was sealed away and is being revived by the creator’s son Babidi. Babidi’s magic and possessed fighters aren’t much of a threat for Goku, Gohan, and Vegeta until Babidi uses Vegeta’s inner evil to take him over. Goku and Vegeta face off again at Super Saiyan 2 level while Supreme Kai and Gohan fail to stop Babidi and Buu is revived. While bulbous, jolly, and child like, Buu shows his true menace leading to the death of Vegeta, and Kai and Gohan beaten within an inch of there lives. Gohan is revived and offered to try for the mythical Z Sword, one of the cosmos greatest weapons. Meanwhile, Goku has no choice but to teach Goten and Trunks the fusion technique,  while unleashing the full might of Super Saiyan 3 on Buu, which wipes out his remaining time on earth, leaving the only hopes in Gohan, Goten and Trunks. Can they beat the odds?

The 8th season of DBZ is a improvement from the 7th but the biggest complaint is it is bloated as hell. While the fights are awesome, the cuts to Hercule’s story as well some of the kids stuff feels like buffer. Vegeta has some great moments and the rematch between him and Goku was truly badass. I do love Super Saiyan 3 Goku and Gotenks ( the fusion of Goten and Trunks) are also awesome. Majin Buu is a mixed bag of a villain; when he’s pissed, he’s pretty cool but he becomes annoying when he starts goofing off and acting like a toddler. In the end, the season is a mixed bag but pretty decent all in all. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

 

Angel Season 4

Angel season 4 is a bit weird for me. We have mostly left the idea of redemption and helping people and moved into the realm of some ancient evil coming into the world when Cordy and Connor have a baby that everyone instantly falls in love with her.

My only real issue is the season feels rushed for me. We go from one bad to another pretty quickly after discovering the first one that is seemingly invincible is just a pawn to an evil that is inhabiting Cordys body. Then a baby is born that is her, so she gave birth to herself, but its hiding its true form, which is also hiding its true form. Don’t get me wrong the story is good, but it just seems really rushed to me. Connor has a great story arc here and it could have been even better I think if they had just given it more time. All in all the season is still a good one, but you could tell they were closing in on the end of the show as they try to tie up loose ends and all with cast members leaving and all. It is still worth a watch, but this is the season you can tell they are finishing up. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Dragonball Z: Broly, Second Coming

dbz broly 2

It’s really hard to live up the epicness of Dragonball Z: Broly, the Legendary Super Saiyan which is still my favorite Dragonball Z movie but it was almost certain the mad Saiyan would return.

Videl, Goten, and Trunks are off on a fun little trip to search for the Dragonballs. When Goten starts crying, something is unearthed. After being defeated by Goku, Broly managed to crawl into an escape pod and find his way to Earth, getting frozen in some mountain ice. The sound of Goten’s crying  wakes up Broly and the rampage begins. Gohan comes to the rescue but he’s no match for the monstrous Saiyan in his Legendary form, it’s going to take everything they have to bring down Broly.

There isn’t much to say, Second Coming is a pretty flat sequel. There isn’t much of a story. Broly just exists to grunt and beat people up; he doesn’t even go full Legendary until the final minutes of the film. It was cool to have Goku’s ghost join Gohan and Goten in a Kamehameha and I did laugh my ass off when Goten pisses on Broly’s face. It’s alright to skip to if you want, there isn’t much you’re missing if you do. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Titans, season 2 trailer

well, I’ll give them this, it looks better than the first but that really wasn’t saying much. I like the bigger cast f characters including Superboy, Aqualad, Wonder-girl, and Krypto the super dog. Fans of the comics knew Deathstroke would pop up as the main villain sooner or later; I can’t tell what I think of his look yet. There are still some cringe worthy moments like Todd yelling ” Titans are back bitches!”. In the end, it looks like a improvement but not too great.
