The 21st film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has dropped and Carol Danvers makes her on screen debut in Disney’s Captain Marvel. How does it stack up in a supremely crowded franchise with almost two dozen films?
Alita is that rarest of movies; a western adaptation of a Japanese manga/anime classic. I can count all of those that I know of on one hand: Speed Racer. Ghost in the Shell. Edge of Tomorrow. Dragonball Evolution. All these movies have made the leap from art to film, east to west. Most of them have been abysmal failures. Does Alita then fare any better?
7 years since the last mainline Kingdom Hearts game (3D) and a whopping 13 since the 2nd iteration in the series, Kingdom Hearts 3 released on January 25th in Japan and the 29th for all other regions.

So Nintendo finally gave us more details on their new console after first showing it with that video last year, and what a showing it was.
It all sounded good at first. They showed a price, release date and revealed that the Switch, unlike their other consoles would FINALLY be region free! No longer do you have to buy another version of the same console just to play a game that they weren’t willing to release in the west. The price of $299 USD was a bit high but most people were expecting them to price it at that range. March 3rd as the release day was a shocker as well.I along with most people probably expected middle or late March, not 6 weeks out from the announcement date. All in all though, things were going smoothly.

The closest to idol culture you get are vocaloid, anisongs, and the occasional idol anime.
