Time To Watch: Naruto (Season 2 complete)

Okay, I’m not going to lie, I set out to watch maybe half the episodes. I ended up binge watching this whole season in under two weeks. Again, I’m a slow watcher, take it easy on me, would you? Nevertheless, this has been an excellent season which shows a lot about the characters. Most of this season revolves around two parts of the exam, one part being a survival experience and the second part being a sort of tournament. The Chunin exam section is pretty much complete and yes, as I mentioned, I’m going to watch this whole damn series, no matter how big it is. So, here are my thoughts of season 2 of Naruto.

Top 10 90’s Geek Films

GeekOut Top 10s

Before we delve into this list, we’re defining a 90’s Geek Film as one that was set out to entertain geeks. Therefore we’re going to include the likes of the 90’s Batman films, but not things like Home Alone which went on to become a cult classic. Some films toe the line between geeky and simply a good movie, so some of these may be contentious. Without further adieu, these are our Top 10 90’s Geek Films.

Time To Watch: Naruto (Episodes 12-26 (Season One Finished))

Just shy of two weeks ago, I did a summary post of my thoughts and feelings of Naruto as a first time sitting down to just watch it all. I am pleased to say that in less than a month, I’ve finished one season – Yeah, yeah, I know, some of you are laughing at that child’s play, I struggle to binge watch. Anyway, now that I’ve completed season 1, here are my thoughts of the series so far.

Time To Watch: Naruto (Episodes 1-11)

Just over a week ago, I mentioned that I had never sat down and watched Naruto the whole way through. It’s strange to call myself an anime fan without actually having watched much of the orange ninja, so I thought it’d be kind of fun to watch it all, share my thoughts on the show and get your thoughts in response. I have to thank the people who spoke to me after that article, as ultimately I learned a lot more about the show than I expected. Also, thanks to those of you who offered encouragement for my sanity, which may be just as important. Here are my thoughts of the first 11 episodes. As the series is so old, these articles may have some spoilers.

Top 10 Angels

So elegant, so beautiful, so… angelic! Angels are a prominent part of both fiction and religious works. The two go hand-in-hand sometimes, when religion is blended seamlessly with fictional works. Other times, an angel is just a holy being, usually with some form of holy powers. Whatever your take on the word, there is no doubt that this week, we’re going to admire the divine with our Top 10 Angels list.

Time To Watch: Naruto

Right, hold on, don’t jump the gun on this article today folks. Have you ever enjoyed something, say video games or even anime, where a large section of fans talk about a particular series? Perhaps you’re a gamer who has never played a Call of Duty, or a Final Fantasy? What if you’re a comic fan who has never read X-Men? I’m a guy who really enjoys anime, however I’ve never really given Naruto a proper try. There’s also no reason for it, as I thoroughly enjoyed the first couple of episodes that I did see way back when. So, I’m about to start a new venture – To watch all of Naruto… We’ll talk about Boruto another time.

Anime Review: Hinomaru Sumo

Whilst not the first anime based on the traditions of sumo, this one is fairly in-depth. The last sumo anime I watched was Rowdy Sumo Wrestler Matsutaro, where a local bully gets humbled and wants to be a strong sumo wrestler, to impress his teacher who he loves. This anime is a huge step away from that, talking about the desire to be a Yokozuna. Mix traditional sumo with shounen elements and you get Hinomaru Sumo. Sounds good? Read on!

We’re looking for the best frogs in all of pop culture, in this week’s Top 10 Frogs.

Anime Review: The Promised Neverland

Psychological horror that will chill you to the core, The Promised Neverland is simply a tale that will have you both captivated and horrified. With a likable cast, an excellent OST and a dark premise behind it, this will be one of 2019’s best anime, but it will likely go along relatively unheard of due to the genre. Nevertheless, I decided to check out The Promised Neverland, as the idea behind it caught my attention at the start of the year.
