One Piece More: Whatever Happen to Mikey?
Whatever happen to One Piece More?
It was taking a break.
Things have been busy and slow in a way. It has been mostly slow. Still, in an attempt to pick things up, we are going to bring back More. What is More you ask? It just a way to talk about random things that may or may not involve One Piece. After all, sometimes we all want one piece more.
What is Princess Jellyfish?
Comedy is something that I look for when I am watching a series. I love things that can make me laugh and keep my interest. Princess Jellyfish did that to me. It had everything I like from traps to a touching story.
I have heard about the series from different anime podcasts and wanted to give the show a watch. Fortunate for me, my anime club was showing it this semester. After watching three episodes, I had to buy the series and watch it dub. A sick day later and I found myself finishing this eleven episode series.
It is a cute show that has an opening filled with pop culture references. If you have some time then I recommend that you give Princess Jellyfish a shot. If you have heard people say that this kind of anime isn't made anymore then they are right. Not as after as it should be. It has a bit more mature story that doesn't involve a high school boy meets high school girl with boobs everywhere. It features adults and geeks in a realistic setting. So if you want something different to watch then here is your different.
You play the Pokemon TCG?
Another thing that has been taking up my time is the Pokemon Trading Card Game. You would be surprise at how organize it is. Also, how cheap it is to play compare to other TCGs. I use to collect the cards as a kid but got to start playing a year ago. That is a story you will hear from many other current Pokemon TCG players my age recite. I guess with the card game starting afresh and people having money and transportation, it makes it easier to get into the game.
Currently I am looking forward to the Regional tournament that is happening next weekend. The last time I went to one, I didn't do so well and had to leave early. I am hoping that this time I can do better and stay for the whole thing.
How do you feel about Season 5 and Strong World being picked up?
Season 5 has one of my favorite moments in the series. It also happens to be the only arc that I have not watched in it's entirely. So getting the chance to watch it for the first time as the dub will be a real treat for me.
Strong World is just icing on the cake. That is something else that I have not watched. I was simply waiting for that to be picked up and dubbed. It is going to be fun to see who will be cast as Brook. Funimation is going have to pull out their A-list actors to pull off Brook's spirit which was spotlighted in this movie.
Where are the anime reviews?
Fishman Island is bad. It was bad in the manga and that is carrying over into the anime. The one-chapter-per-episode format isn't working for an arc that dragged it's feet. It even has lackluster villains. If the anime had sped up the pace then maybe it would have been better.
Hopefully this will change for the next arc. I know that Sora and I are excited about it.
I hope you enjoy this little fun format for this More segment. It is something and easy to read. I hope it address some of the things that have been going on site side and hopefully we can have more of these. We do have some good things planned for the future so keep an eye out and keep reading.
