With halls decked and bells jingled, it’s time to move on from holiday cheer into the stressful world of what it actually means to be a Hero in the world of MHA. Sort of.
I feel like Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance is like a cake masterpiece where some ingredients had to be substituted and the cake was taken out of the oven a bit too early. It looks brilliant, the cake is solid and moist—sweet even—but it has an odd aftertaste…and someone keeps taking the piece of cake away for me just as I’m starting to enjoy it.
In case the premise of an near-omnipotent group of intergalactic overlords overseeing and manipulating time to their whim and will didn’t remind you of Doctor Who already, Loki‘s third episode is about as classic a Who-esque episode of television as you’ll find. Loki and his new companion Sylvie, the female Loki variant, are marooned in the year 2077 on a distant planet’s moon that is soon to be destroyed. So, how was Loki‘s take on a Doctor Who episode? Well it was pretty good actually; but, much like most Doctor Who episodes, it ended in a somewhat frustrating fashion. The episode primarily focuses on Loki and Sylvie getting to know one another and examining the differences in their individual variant lives. As it turns out, the two seem to have lead rather different lives. We get glimpses of Syvlie’s backstory, but the show doesn’t reveal its hand fully just yet. What it does do is make it clear that Sylvie isn’t the big bad here. In fact, she seems to be rather noble in her …
After the shocking time skip that closed out last week’s episode of To Your Eternity, I was surprised to see that the episode that followed it spent most of its run time catching up with the characters and having them finally connect the dots of their shared histories.
It’s Christmas! Well, not really, not here in the real world, but it is in the not-exactly-real-but-we-wish-it-was world.
We didn’t have to wait long to find out exactly who was beneath the hood on Loki. As it turns out, it isn’t Loki as we know it.
This is what you call a turning point episode. Last week left us hanging, as Fushi and Gugu were in a perilous situation as they were confronted by an “unknowable enemy” in the forest.
The matches are over and it’s time to roll on into our next story arc…soon. Not this week. This week is a bit of a wind down, with characters mulling over the important moments of the 1-A–1-B clash.
Loki’s character arc had always been defined by his quest for one thing above all else: glorious purpose. This first episode of Disney Plus’ Loki makes it clear what that glorious purpose ultimately was: that being to help unite The Avengers and set them on their path to eventually save the universe from Thanos. As Loki watches his entire life play out in the final moments of the episode, the reality sets in that that glorious purpose was achieved, but this version of Loki now stands purposeless. The series picks up where we last saw Loki in Avengers: Endgame as he teleported away from the Battle of New York using the Tesseract. He is quickly picked up by Minutemen of the TVA (a.k.a. The Time Variance Authority). The TVA is an organisation that exist outside of time and space and monitor and maintain the “Sacred Timeline” as determined by the three great Time Keepers. Loki has become a variant and, as such, the TVA have now put him to trial for his crime against the …
If you’ve ever wanted to experience what it’s like to be a legendary assassin who commits legendary amounts of carnage, then have I got a collection of games for you. More specifically speaking: Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection.
After what has been a period of relative downtime for the series, it looks like we are well and truly about to see things kick into gear once again.
And so, the battle continues. Confident that that the students’ determination will carry them past the hurdle of Midoriya seemingly exploding with darkness, Aizawa allows the fifth match of the 1-A–1-B struggle to continue. Is that the most responsible choice?
What makes us human and what makes us monsters? Perhaps both are intrinsically linked as if two sides of the same coin, only a flip away from one becoming the other.
Delving once more into the much-explored Sengoku (Warring States) period of Japan’s history, this latest instalment in the Samurai Warriors spin-off franchise is set to explore the rise of a fairly prominent figure: one Oda Nobunaga.
And so, we now return you to your regularly scheduled Midoriya drama. Yep, not five minutes back in focus and Midoriya is already busting up the 1-A–1-B matches with some new, decidedly interesting lore. Remember how Midoriya is the ninth wielder of One For All? Well, turns out the previous eight weren’t all Quikless…who’da thunk?
