Hey, I Remember That! Rewatching Digimon: Digital Monsters

We all remember the TV shows we watched and loved as kids. As adults we grumble about the ‘quality of kids’ shows these days’, but what about the ones we remember so fondly?  They may hold a place in our hearts and in our nostalgias, but what happens when you re-watch some of those shows now? Well, thanks to DVD release and streaming options like Netflix, this task is simpler than ever. So, with that in mind, I thought I would go back and look at some of these and give my thoughts on how they’ve aged, or at least how they fare through adult eyes. So first up is the one that we’ve actually been watching a lot of lately, Digimon: Digital Monsters (or Digimon Adventure). I’m talking only about Season/Series 1 here, because that’s the one I remember watching. To be fair, it’s a season of 54 episodes, so there’s plenty to talk about.

Anime Talk: Live Action Ghost In The Shell clips!


A live action version of the Anime Movie Ghost In The Shell is in fact a real thing, and in the past I have written two posts about this subject, the first one when I first found out about this project ( Read it HERE ) and the second a look into the controversy and accusation of "white washing" by Hollywood because Scarlet Johansson was cast as the Major ( Read that one HERE ). Well now I am writing to share with you all some clips I just saw on ChrunchRoll's news section from the movie which are on youtube. You can see those clips HERE. 

Now there isn't a lot we can learn from the clips as they are so short, however there is one thing we certainly can learn from them. One of the fears surrounding this film by the fans of the source material is that the setting would be changed. It was feared that the story would be removed from Japan and placed in a futuristic version of New York, or LA but from what we can see in these clips that fear can be put to rest or so I hope anyway. These clips make me more hopeful for this movie and now we just have to sit and wait too see weather Ms Johansson can do the role of Motoko Kusanagi.

Anime Talk: Top 5 – 2 for 1 Double Take!

Anyway lets get rolling with our first list.

JReviews/ Anime Talk: Digimon

Hi guys, JR here again and once again I'm hijacking the Anime Talk title from Kaldath (you guys get 2 Anime Talks in one week, what a novelty). This is because next week is the release of the second part of Digimon Adventure Tri. Now, I'm sure people might remember that I did an Anime Talk on the first part of A3 last year and I, for want of a better phrase, lost my absolute mind over it. Of course I will be reviewing (read fanspazzing all over) the second part next week, but first I thought I'd do something I've wanted to do for a while and go over the previous Digimon series. All of them.
