DC Rebirth [Impressions]

As I’ve mentioned before, I said that I would take the time to write about the comic side of geek-dom, and what better way to start with one of the biggest comic events of the year: DC Rebirth?

It’s been about 5 years since DC rebooted their universe with the New 52. The histories of many of the characters and series were altered to give easier access to new readers. However, with DC Rebirth, the company intends to touch upon their roots and bring back old fans that may have left from the New 52. This doesn’t just mean bringing back old characters and series, but it’s how they will incorporate the past to create something new with their current material. On May 25, DC released an 80 page issue previewing what changes are in store for the entire DC Universe.

Re:Zero Starting Life In Another World [First Impressions]

So tell me if you’ve heard this: “Boy gets summoned to a different world. Boy gains a special power. Boy goes on a journey to save the world.” It’s a premise that’s used as much as there are stars in the skies and it doesn’t seem that it’ll start getting old anytime soon. The question that I really have to ask in this article is that is Re:Zero any different than its past predecessors? Well you’ll be in for a treat once you realize that it’s more than it seems.

Re:Zero’s story starts off with its protagonist stuck in a life or death situation choosing which brand of cup ramen he should have for dinner. After making the final decision he would ever make in that world, Subaru Natsuki is then summoned by a mysterious force into a world of fantasy. While having a hard time adjusting to the change in location, Subaru is assisted by a mesmerizing girl with silver hair. In return for her actions, Subaru insists on helping her find an object she lost, an endeavor which eventually leads them to an untimely ending. From there, the story begins yet again.

Yet Another Return and What It Means

It’s nearly been a year since I’ve returned to the writing front and I honestly couldn’t tell if I’d actually return. Who knows when I’ll go on hiatus again and who knows how many people are actually reading this? Although the website’s statistical analysis will show me in due time for the latter question, but my point is that I might as well start from scratch and go at it for as long as I can.

Things That I’ve Been Doing:

1) Watching Kamen Rider
