Anime Thoughts... Wonder Egg Priority Episode 4: Colorful Girls

Wonder Egg Priority

Hey there. This is the first post of a new series that you'll find on Metallman's Reverie... Anime Thoughts... You see, I watch a lot of anime. As a matter of fact, I named a few days of the week by the anime that is scheduled to come out that day. Like... Tuesday is Wonder Egg Priority day. Wednesday? Re: Zero day. Sunday? Attack on Titan day. And there are a lot more. But anyways, I figure that writing a post on what I just watched would be a good idea. Now... because I am writing about about the latest episode, there will be spoilers. If you haven't watched the episode that I am about to write about, go watch it and then come back here because I am going to write as if my audience has already watched the episode. I'll mention a topic and then I"ll give me thoughts. So first up, the anime series Wonder Egg Priority Episode 4. Let's dig right in.

Here are a few of the 90's animated shows that have really persisted.

Thoughts On... Talentless Nana

Talentless Nana Anime
Hey there. I'm a huge anime fan. Some might even say I'm an otaku type person (like the posts on my Otaku Box don't give it away. lol) so I watch a lot of anime. I'm been thinking of continuing my Thoughts On... series based on anime series that I recently watched. I originally thought of doing per episode but that's just going to be too much and because the Fall anime season just ended, I figured that this would be the best time to give thoughts on an anime series where the season just ended. So for the revival of Thoughts On... series, let's talk about the Talentless Nana. But before I do, let's get some technicalities out of the way. This post will contain spoilers for the Talentless Nana anime series (Fall anime season 2020) so I suggest you catch the series before you read the rest of this post. You have been warned, friends! Here are my thoughts on... Talentless Nana.

The Otaku Box - May 2020 Items

May 2020 The Otaku Box Items
The May 2020 Otaku Box is here!

Hey there. I received my May Otaku Box a little on the late side. We are now in August and I just received it yesterday!  YIKES! It's ok, though. This box was caught in the middle of shipping during a COVID issue so it's understandable that some shipments will be getting here a bit late. Good thing that our good friends at The Otaku Box have jumped on the shipping issues and have done their best to fix it. So much so that I should be getting my July box either today or tomorrow. A mere 2 weeks after shipping. YES! So without any more delay, let's dig in The Otaku Box - May 2020 Edition and let's see what we got!

Resurrecting the Thoughts On... Series

Anime to watch
Must see anime!

Hey there. I do quite a bit of TV watching and reading. Err... I mean, I watch a lot of anime and read a lot of manga. lol There is just so much good stuff in the anime world right now that it has been pretty hard to keep up with it all. But there are a few series that I just cannot miss. Shows like Re: Zero, Rent-A-Girlfriend, and Sword Art Online: War of the Underworld are must watch for me. And let's not forget the manga that I'm currently following as well. We're talking Tower of God, Kaguya-Sama: Love is War, My Hero Academia to name a few. Because I'm always checking something out, I figure that this is the perfect opportunity to bring back my Thoughts On... series.

The Otaku Box - June 2020

The Otaku Box - June 2020
The June Otaku Box is here!
Hey there. I love me some anime! I've been keeping up with most of the latest shows (yes, they are shows to me) and have been a big fan of anime since my high school years. Some of my favorite stuff from recent years is Overlord (Albedo... my favorite), Re: Zero, and Tower of God, to name only a few. So when I found out there is a subscription service that would send me anime stuffs every month, I just had to jump on board. Welcome, The Otaku Box. Liz and her team at The Otaku Box have done an amazing job in getting these cool boxes with anime stuffs out to fans.

Now, I've been a subscriber for some time and I've posted a few of my favorite items that I received on Instagram, but now, I feel it's time to let you in on what comes in a box. Items received could be anything from stickers, acrylic figures, PVC figures, T-shirts, banners, buttons, cards, plushies, and all things otaku!!!  The box is customizable so you can choose whether you want to receive a PVC figure and/or a T shirt.  You can even choose whether or not you receive ecchi stuffs.  I got kids in the house so I opted for the non-ecchi box but if that's your thing, The Otaku Box has you covered! Another thing that I really love about The Otaku Box is that they have exclusive items featuring fan artwork. How cool is that? The artwork is generally featured on T shirts, buttons, and banners and I love the fact that this is stuff that you won'r be able to find anywhere else. So let's dig in The Otaku Box - June 2020 Edition and let's see what we got!

The FandomVerse Expo Sept. 4 - 6, 2015 in Lancaster, CA

Hey there.  It's been awhile since I last attended an expo.  I think the last one I went to was the AM2 Expo in Anaheim a few years back.  Well... I went to LA Fitness Expo as well but I don't think I covered that.  Anyways, when I read online that there was an anime/gaming/cosplay/just about everything else Expo going on in Lancaster, CA, I just had to get inside scoop!  Welcome the FandomVerse Expo! It's a relatively new expo that is still feeling its way and this is their second year holding an event.  Last year, they had a one day expo while this year, they are making it a 3 day affair!  And guess what?!  I have a press badge!  After reaching out to the awesome people behind FandomVerse Expo, I was able to secure a press badge for some primo seating and interview time with some of the guests of honor!  How awesome is that?!

Jessica Nigri - The Queen of Cosplay

The best of Jessica Nigri!
Photo taken from Jessica Nigri Fan Page
Hey there.  Cosplay is a tricky thing.  With so many fans wanting to display their love of their favorite characters, it's no surprise that sometimes you come across a cosplay outfit that simply doesn't work.  Either because the costume was quickly or poorly made.  I'm not saying not to do it, though.  If it's what you love to do, by all means do it.  Display your love however you see fit!  But when cosplay is done right, man can it be breath taking.  That's why I believe that Jessica Nigri is the queen of cosplay!  Just take a look at collage of characters that she has displayed.  The only thing that's missing is my all time favorite female character, Harley Quinn!

The Secret World of Arrietty (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo) Giveaway

Hey there.  Who here loves all things Miyazaki?  I have always been a fan and I got the kids into Miyazaki films with Spirited Away and Ponyo.  Even though there are other great films before that (Howl's Moving Castle, Princess Mononoke, etc.) Spirited Away will always have a special place in my heart because the kids just loved it.  While thinking in that vein, I decided that I will give away the latest masterpiece of Studio Ghibli away!  Enter to win a 2 disc Blu Ray/DVD Combo of The Secret World of Arrietty! Here's a recap of the film from Amazon:

Thoughts on... High School of the Dead

Hey there.  Recently, it's been tough getting my horror film fix on.  Young eyes are everywhere recently and I don't want to expose the kids to anything that they shouldn't see.  I mentioned to kids the other day how I used to watch "scary movies" with my dad when I was a young boy.  Great films such as The Fly and cult classics such as Phantasm.  lol  I remember being 6 or 7 and lying in bed late at night watching those kind of films with him.  I understand the sentiment behind his actions.  He very well just wanted to share a hobby of his with his young son.  However, being a father myself, I'm not so sure that was the best idea you had, Dad!  lol  Nevertheless, my love for horror started right then and there and though I would love for my kids to catch that bug, I wouldn't make them sit through some of the stuff I see.  Especially something like High School of the Dead.  Here are my thoughts on...  High School of the Dead.

AM2 Convention: My Day with the Ani.me Guys

Hey there.  So I was fortunate enough to spend last Saturday at the AM2 Convention in Anaheim and got a chance to hang out with the guys running Ani.me!  How freakin' awesome is that?  I got to stand behind the booth and set up their photo booth and helped out with their much inquired scavenger hunt.  Mike, Chris, and Evan are an awesome group of guys and I definitely wouldn't mind working with them again.

AM2Con is This Weekend, July 1st - July 3rd

Hey there.  The Anime, Music, and Manga Convention is being hosted at the Anaheim Convention Center this weekend!  3 full days of nothing but put pre awesomeness.  If you guys are in the Los Angeles area this weekend, you should consider making the trip to Anaheim to check this out.  The convention is free to everyone but there are certain activities and shows that you will have to pay for.  Many of the exhibits, workshops, and events are free so there really isn't a reason why you wouldn't want to stop by.
