The Rising of the Shield Hero: A New Roar

Hey there. The first episode of the new season of Shield Hero quickly introduced a new threat, showcased Naofumi’s strength, gave us insight into the new party member, and gave us mystique with that ending. So let’s not waste any time and discuss some of the more noteworthy aspects of the episode, A New Roar.

It was cool to see that Lurolona Villiage, Raphtalia’s home town, is starting to look lively again. Some familiar faces are there to help the rebuilding process and it was a great way to reintroduce some characters. After getting suddenly attacked, Raphtalia and Filo quickly take out the threat. It’s noteworthy here that the bats that came to attack had a turtle shell type thing on their back. It’s a clear nod to the big bad of this season and it was pretty awesome to have that detail into the enemies. It was at this time that a loud roar is heard and the team is left wondering what that was.

After being summoned to the castle to meet with the Queen, we learn that the roar may be coming from the Spirit Tortoise and the Queen is asking the legendary heroes to take it … Read More

AEW Dynamite results from 04-06-2022

AEW is invading Beantown tonight as we’re LIVE from the Agganis Arena in Boston, Massachusetts! As expected, we’re getting right to the action!

MATCH #1: One-On-One Match:
Adam Cole vs. Christian Cage

The two men lock up early and it is Christian Cage who takes control to start, but Adam Cole quickly reverses it by taking the veteran into the corner, abusing the full five count. Cole then rolls to the outside and then spits at Christian. However, as he tries to run around, Cage goes under the ropes and then drops him with a clothesline.

Cage then unloads a series of chops, but Cole reverses when being put on the top turnbuckle. He escapes out and hits a kick to the legs, which sees Cage drop and hang, allowing Adam to get a free superkick shot to the face. Outside the ring, Cage is then sent into the guard rail and the steel steps.

Cole continues putting pressure on inside the ring, standing down on his neck while Christian’s head is stuck on the bottom rope. The veteran once again turns things around with a dive to the outside, and then they go back and forth with punches inside … Read More

The Blue Blur is Back: Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Movie Review

Video game movies have always had a tendency of either being downright awful (here’s looking at you Uwe Boll) to being good yet insanely cheesy such as movies like the 1995 movie based on the video game hit, Mortal Kombat. Because of this, many gamers and moviegoers alike have come to brace themselves whenever a movie based on a video game is announced and then released hoping that this movie might be the one that ends up doing the source material some justice with many failing and some just missing the mark.

Until 2020 when Sega decided to bring the blue blur himself, Sonic the Hedgehog, to movie theaters nationwide, and it absolutely dominated as one of if not the best video game movie ever made. Now, Sonic is back and he has brought some very familiar friends along to take on a returning Jim Carey as Dr. Eggman after being isolated on the Mushroom Planet since the end of the first movie. We find Sonic making his home in the lush town of Green Hills just outside of Seattle where Sonic hopes to be the hero that he believes is his destiny.

While trying to maintain a normal life … Read More

He’s Back, Baby! My Thoughts on the WWE Return of Cody Rhodes

The date: April 2nd 2022. I’m in my living room,  marking out in a way I haven’t since I was a little kid. Why, because I suddenly have faith in the WWE again. I will be brutally honest, when I first started wrestling, it was unanimous that the WWE was the goal and top aspiration for all indie wrestlers and as time drove on, it suddenly wasn’t. The last few years have been hard on everyone, but especially for Vince McMahon’s employees. Apparently, it was so bad that The Elite, who up to this point was a wrestling faction and also a podcast group, decided to make their own t-shirt… uh, I mean wrestling company. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love AEW and what they have accomplished, but when it becomes too much? Well, apparently for Cody Rhodes “too much” was reached on Feburary 15th 2022.

Two days beforehand, I had just placed an order on the AEW site for the very limited edition Bryan Danielson  vs Sagat AEW X Capcom t-shirt when I also decided to go ahead and throw down on the Nightmare Family shirt that mirrors the FoxHound logo. I could not wait to rep my … Read More

What I’m Watching During the Spring 2022 Anime Season

Hey there. The Domain’s resident otaku is ready for a new season of anime! Last season had some GREAT shows such as Ranking of Kings (such an amazing story), Attack on Titan: The Final Season Part 2 (action-packed), My Dress Up Darling (guilty pleasure), Love of Kill (intriguing) and 86 (LENA!!!) … just to name a few. I love a great story and there is no shortage of great ones when it comes to anime. Also, I plan on writing up episode reviews as the shows progress so make sure to come back for some deep dive anime content!

So let’s take a look at some of the stories that have caught my attention and will be releasing this Spring 2022 anime season.

The Rising of the Shield Hero 2

I’ll be honest, everyone, I was a bit late to this party. I binged watched the whole first season to get ready for the second and, wow… what a ride! I absolutely love the idea of 4 heroes coming together to take out the big bad (Final Fantasy, anyone?)… but what if you are one of the 4 heroes and cannot choose your weapon/skills? What if you were forced to … Read More

My most anticipated movies of 2022

I am not a big moviegoer or tv person; never have been, even as a kid. Before I met my husband, I had ONE tv show that I watched religiously; and even then, it took me four years after the show ended to finish the series. However, my husband and a good friend of his goes to the theater once or twice a month to see a featured new release, and I have found myself tagging along occasionally in the past months. Candyman (meh), Halloween Kills (awful), Scream (loved it), and The Batman (amazing!) to name a few. I always love watching the previews, and there were definitely a few that stood out. I have no overall genre that I am a diehard for, I just like what I like. In no particular order, these are the handful of theater releases I am actually looking forward to seeing in 2022 (apologies in advance to my hubby for crashing guys night):

The Black Phone (Blumhouse Productions, June 2022)– Based on a short story from Joe Hill’s anthology 20th Century Ghosts, this supernatural thriller follows a 13-year-old boy (Mason Thames) after being abducted and held captive by a child killer … Read More
