Frieza has mad drumming skills?!!!!
Every DBZ fanatik knows Frieza right? He is one of the super villains of the anime that has been a pain in the Z fighters collective umh… backsides, one of their deadliest foes! But when he is not planning to kill and main it seems he likes to play the drums. In our video proof, you will see this fearless fiend playing the drums to the theme song of Attack on Titan. Now we wonder, is he on the side of the Titans or maybe there is some good in him and he is rooting for Eren Yeager and his crew.
A second promotional video for the upcoming anime Gabriel Dropout was released by the anime’s official website. The anime is an adaptation based on Ukami’s Gabriel Dropout comedy fantasy manga. The Promotional video features its opening song ‘Gabriel Drop Kick’ performed by four of the cast members: Miyu Tomita (Gabriel White Tenma), Saori Onishi (Vignette April Tsukinose), Naomi Ozora (Satanichia McDowell Kurumizawa), and Kana Hanazawa (Raphiel Ainsworth Shiraha). They also sing the anime’s ending song.
This anime unites the main staff from summer 2015’s Himōto! Umaru-chan anime. In the director’s seat, we have Masahiko Ohta, joined by Katsuhiro Kumagai as character designer and Takashi Aoshma working on series composition. The anime will premiere on January 9th, 2017
Gabriel Dropout is a comedy anime that follows Gabriel White, top graduate at the angel school that went to down earth to attend a human school in the pursuit of knowledge, but then gets addicted to a web game, and becomes reluctant to leave her apartment. She becomes a good for nothing angel (datenshi).
Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress
Remember Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress that premiered in 2016? The series aired between April and July this year. This anime, coined as a ‘steampunk survival action’ series played off in an alternate world on an island country named Hinomoto. In that world, humans are hiding on fortresses called Stations since reanimated dead with hearts of iron called kabana overrun the outside. People can, however, move from Station to Station thanks to steam-powered trains.
During the week Fuji TV announced that there will be a Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress second season scheduled for sometime in 2018. Not much detail has been revealed as of yet but until then fanatiks can look forward to the compilation films as well as a drama CD. Tetsuro Araki just confirmed that it would be an anime. A Promo video about the second season announcement has been released.
Kuzu no Honkai
A second promotional video for Kuzu no Honkai (Scum’s Wish) started streaming in the week. In the video it preview’s “Uso no Hanabi’ (Lying Fireworks), the opening theme by 96Neko and ‘Heikōsen” (Parallel Line), the ending theme song by Sayuri.
The anime is to premiere on January 12th and is based off the manga by Mengo Yokoyari. The manga launched the manga in Square Enix’s Big Gagan magazine in 2012 and its seventh volume is due to be released in December. The anime stars: Chika Anzai, Nobunaga Shimazaki, Haruka Tomatsu, Shiori Izawa, Kenji Nojima and Aki Toyosaki.
The staff included Masaomi Ando (Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle) as director, Makoto Uezu (Akame ga KILL!) on Series Composition and Keiko Kurosawa (Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle) on character design. The anime will tell the tale of Hanabi and Mugi, a seemingly perfect couple but they actually share a secret know one knows about. What it is and how dark or diabolical that secret is we will all have to discover in January.
Fuji TV also opened a website in the week to announce a live-action Kuzu no Honkai television series which is set to premiere on January 18th. The live-action series will star Miyu Yoshimoto and Dōri Sakurada.
On Monday the official website for the Pokémon Go smartphone game announced that several Pokémon like Pichu and Togepi have been added to the game. The best way to find these Pokémon is to get eggs at PokéStops and hatch them. These new Pokémon all hail from the Johto region and are part of the second generation Pokémon (from the Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver games). In the beginning of the game 145 of the Kanto region, Pokémon was released in the game with the exception of Ditto, Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Mew, and Mewtwo. Ditto was added in the game in November. The Pokémon Go crew promised that there are new Pokémon more to be added in the next few months.
Another treat they revealed in that from Monday to December 29th a limited edition Pikachu can be caught all over the world. These Pikachu all will be wearing festive Christmas hats to celebrate the season. SO time to put on the backpack, ready the Pokéballs, we go special Pokémon waiting for us!
Onigiri is a much-loved dish in Japan and we have seen Onigiri served to anime characters in anime like Pokémon, Digimon Adventures and Bleach. Did you know that Onigiri can go to the next level? Yaki Onigiri is grilled rice balls and we have a video to teach you how it is made.
As with making normal Onigiri you will need a bowl of rice, bowl of water and ingredients like plums or sesame seed. You will also need some soy sauce and oil. In the video tutorial, our chefs will show us how to grill the Onigiri and give us tips on how to make round or triangular Onigiri.
