Kaldath’s Corner: Teaching Myself Japanese!

japanese-hiragana-chart

Hello my name is Kaldath and I am here to let everyone know that I am an Otaku! Now like every good Otaku out there I have been interested in learning Japanese for a long time now and I have made some very small headway in that direction however my efforts have all been half hearted at best to be honest.  Japanese is a very hard language for a native English speaker to learn especially without the aid of an instructor or a native Japanese speaking individual to help you out!

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.

Kaldath’s Corner: DAREDEVIL on Netflix!

Daredevil-televison

I signed up for Neflix 2 days ago and binge watched the first season Of Daredevil! Well all I have to say is ..... This is ONE HELL of a GOOD series! This is not a review post, though I may do one of those later if I can figure out how to write it without spoilers! What this post is however is a recommendation! If any of you in the Heromachine community are contemplating signing up for a Netflix account but are unsure if it is worth it or not, well I am here to say in My own personal option DAREDEVIL alone is worth the price of admission!

 

I am Glad that I have waited as long as I have however to sign up for it. Watching the first season has left me wanting more and the second season is only a few short weeks away. If I had to wait months to watch season 2 I think I would be climbing the walls by now, that's how good I think this series is!

 

Well that's all I have to say so let me leave you a taste of whats to come if you decided to watch this show with the season one and season two trailer!

Kaldath’s Corner: Anticipated JRock Albums of 2016 and Suggestions wanted.

JRock

Welcome to another edition of Kaldath's Corner where I talk about things that interest me! This time around I want to let you all know about two Jrock Albums I am eagerly awaiting. That first is Scandals 7th Studio album titled "Yellow" which is due for release March 3rd 2016. That second would be Babymetals second album "Metal Resistance" which is due out April 1st 2016 ( the day of the fox )! I am eager awaiting these album especially since I have already heard a couple songs from each album . The songs "Stamp" and "Sisters" from Scandal and the songs "Road of Resistance" and "Adawama Fever" From Babymetal.

In these albums although I love the lead singers ( Haruna and Su-Metal ) I hope we get some more Black Babymetal ( Yui-metal and Moa-Metal) songs from Babymetal and cosidering Scandal gave us one song each from Rina, Mami, and Tomomi on their last album Hello World I want more from those 3 also!! But if they do or they don't I still intend to purchase them!

(Below you will find a few of the songs from these albums for your listening pleasure.)

My second reason for this post is to ask for suggestion for other Jrock groups to listen to as I wish to expand my Jrock collection. No JPop and Kpop please. My music tastes run towards Rock, Hard Rock and Metal so those are the type of bands I am looking for. I have tried One Ok Rock and I find their music a but hit or miss. I have listen to about 5 or six of their songs and liked only two of them. Anyway I appreciate any suggestions and I hope you enjoy the videos below
