Dimension W

Dimension W

A new updated promotional video for Dimension W has been released. Dimension W, based on the manga by Yuji Iwahara is set to premiere on January 10th. The promotional video features the opening song ‘Genesis’ by STEREO DIVE FOUNDATION.

Dimension W is directed by Kanta Kamei (Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend, Bunny Drop) at Studio 3Hz and Orange. Tokuyuki Matsutake (Tales of Phantasia) is designing the characters, and Shôtarô Suga (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Darker than Black) is the story editor.

Dimension W’s story goes like this: 2071, the world’s energy problems seems to be solved by a network of cross-dimensional electric-field inductors- “coils” that extract energy from a seemingly infinite source. That source is the W dimension; a fourth plane that exists beyond the X, Y, and Z dimensions.
There are unofficial “illegal” coils harness powers that the police can’t hope to counter. Dealing with these coils is the job of coil-hating repo man Kyoma, whose run-in with the unique coil android Mira leads the two to form a reluctant partnership.

Final Fantasy VI

Final Fantasy VI

Final Fantasy VI

Old school gamers and anime fanatiks might remember Final Fantasy VI. It was the first Final Fantasy in the franchise that was set in a steampunk environment. It had many memorable playable characters like Terra Branford, a reserved half-human, half-esper girl who spent most of her life as a slave to the Empire; Locke Cole, a treasure hunter and rebel sympathizer with a powerful impulse to protect women; Celes Chere, a former general of the Empire; Edgar Figaro, a consummate womanizer and the king of Figaro; Cyan Garamonde, a loyal knight to the kingdom of Doma; Shadow, a ninja mercenary; Relm Arrowny, a young but tough artistic girl with magical powers; Strago Magus, Relm’s elderly grandfather and a Blue Mage; Gau, a feral child surviving since infancy in the harsh wilderness known as the Veldt; Mog, a Moogle from the mines of Narshe; Umaro, a savage but loyal sasquatch also from Narshe; and Gogo, a mysterious, fully shrouded master of the art of mimicry.

If you miss these old friends then we have news for you. Square Enix streamed a trailer confirming that it will be releasing its Final Fantasy VI game on PC via Steam on December 16. Featured in the trailer are some scenes from the game, and some of the game’s graphics. Square released the game in 1994 for the SNES, and on the PlayStation in 1999. The game was originally released with the title Final Fantasy III in North America, but later releases restored the original name.

So far there has been up to fifteen Final Fantasy RPGs. There are also various Final Fantasy media like the Final Fantasy: Legend of the Crystals OVA, a sequel to Final Fantasy V; the 2001 feature film, Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within. 2005, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, a theatrical CGI film, and Last Order: Final Fantasy VII, a non-canon OVA both released as part of the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII. There was also a 25-episode anime television series titled Final Fantasy: Unlimited.

we included a nice preview video in our bento, so for a sneak peek at the Final Fantasy VI for Steam, please follow this link: http://bit.ly/Final-Fantasy-VI-Steam-Announcement

One-Punch Man

One-Punch Man

One-Punch Man

Remember our preview bento two weeks ago where One-Punch Man took on the wasteland of Fallout 4? Well, it seems the yellow hero has been busy! We found footage made by Sensus YT, a fanatik of both World of Warcraft and One-Punch Man. The video features ‘The Hero’ by JAM Project, which is the theme song of the anime.

Here is the video description in Sensus YT’s own words: “A WoW machinima/music video featuring Saitama from the anime One Punch Man. For those who haven’t seen it as the name suggests the main character Saitama can literally kill anything with one punch, hence the name “One Punch Man.” It’s probably the craziest/ridiculous/most fun show I’ve seen in a while which is what lead me to make this video. Spent probably a solid 15 hours on recording/editing, it’s based off of the original opening and I tried to be as accurate as possible. Anyway, thanks for watching. Hope you enjoy.”

Miso Soup

Miso Soup

Miso Soup

If you, like us at AnimeFanatika love Asian dining, you may have had the chance to order Miso Soup at a restaurant. Miso soup is something that most Japanese have for breakfast with their other food, in fact, it is as important to some Japanese as coffee is to some of us. It is a hearty tasty soup with ingredients like dashi, miso and tofu and drinking it you can feel the energy it unleash in you.

Miso soup can include a variety of vegetables, seafood and meat depending on the cook, but the vegetarian version is the best. A great Miso soup is balanced having ingredients that float and ingredients that sink. A study in 2003 by the National Cancer Centre in Japan suggested that if you eat three or more bowls of Miso soup every day it can cut a woman’s risk of developing breast cancer. Add the fact that even if it is high in protein content but low in calories and you have a perfect healthy dish!

Here is a video of a professional chef teaching us how to make Miso Soup: http://bit.ly/How-to-make-Miso-Soup

We also share a video on how to make Miso Soup with Shiitake Mushrooms. Please follow our link: http://bit.ly/Miso-Soup-with-Shiitake-Mushrooms
