D&A’s Crunchyroll Spotlight: New Game!

Happy Friday everyone! We’re pretty sure that it’s been a hard week for many of us, but we’re soooo glad that it’s finally Friday! Tonight we’ve got another Crunchyroll anime title for you guys to check out (if you haven’t already done so that is). If you’re a fan of games; PC and video games themselves, then I believe that we just might have an anime title that may suit your needs.

If you liked the anime title known as Gamers, then we’ve got another title that’s similar to it! New Game! is an anime series about a high school graduate named Aoda Suzukaze, who has become inspired by the character designs of a certain video game, and begins working as a character designer for the game’s developer; Eagle Jump. While designing characters for the games, Aoda comes to know her colleagues as well as the other staff members of the company. The series pretty much follows Aoda and her colleagues as they develop and work on various characters for various types of games.

You can watch the first and second seasons of New Game! on Crunchyroll and of course FunimationNow! We’ve got more awesome filler posts coming up next week, and also next week, we’re back on the road with a one-day anime convention; CHS Otaku Fest!

Keep making D&A a part of you, and we’ll keep making you a part of us! 🙂

Filler Post: 7 Things You Didn’t Know About Vegeta!

This character needs no introduction. If you’re a 90’s kid then you’ve already seen his face, heard his voice, and saw his battle with his greatest rival. Wait, you didn’t think we were talking about Goku, did you? Sorry, not this time guys n’ gals. We’re talking about the Saiyan Prince, the undisputed ‘King of all Saiyans’, the one and only…Prince Vegeta!

Vegeta-1

From the manga to the anime, Dragon Ball Z is a historic part of anime history, as being one of the best pioneering action-packed titles straight outta Japan. From King Piccolo to Beerus the Destroyer fans both old and new have watched Goku and Co. battle powerful villains in order to keep the earth safe. There are a lot of memorable fighters among the Z-ranks, but one of the most iconic has to be Bulma’s heel-turned-hero husband. Although he’s a favorite among the fanbase, there are a few things about him that some fans don’t know about. Some.

Not to worry though, because we’ve been combing through the web and found some interesting things about our favorite ruthless saiyan prince. So from us to you here are seven things you didn’t know about Vegeta, the Prince of all Saiyans!

7. He Was Supposed to be “Killed” in the First Arc!

Yeah, even we didn’t believe it, but it’s true! According to Toriyama, Vegeta was deemed one of his least favorite characters at the time he was working on the Saiyan Invasion Arc. At first he was supposed to be a one-and-done villain for the first arc, but then a couple “things” happened that involved fan letters and story development, and here we are in 2018 with Vegeta a part of the Z-Fighter’s Crew! (He was killed by Frieza though, but was brought back by the Namekian dragon balls.)

6. He “Had” a Brother!

Yes Trunks, you “had” an uncle. In fact Vegeta’s brother is a part of the DBZ canon, but never in the entire series is he seen. Although he’s completely unlike his older sibling (in terms of being a warrior or even sharing his aggression), Tarble is in fact Trunks’ uncle, even though he’s never seen him nor even knows where he currently is; only because Vegeta himself doesn’t know.

5. He Has a Super Saiyan 3 Transformation!

Okay, we all know how bad he wants to surpass Goku in terms of power (and he’s done so on a few occasions in his own way), but what many of us may not know, is the fact that he has a SSJ3 transformation. Although it would have been appropriate to have used it during the Majin Buu Saga, Vegeta knew how much power it would drain from user’s body, plus it would be rendered useless after SSJ3 Gotenks was defeated by Copy Vegeta in Dragon Ball Super.

4. He Can Survive in Space!

Long enough to blow up a planet, yes. It was made clear to us that during the Frieza Saga as well as the rest of the series, saiyans really can’t breathe in space the same way we can’t. However thanks to Vegeta disproving this theory, saiyans can ‘survive’ in space for a while thanks to their strong lung capacity.

3. He Retains his Majin Power!

While Babidi’s spell unleashes the evil in a person’s heart, it also unlocks their hidden potential (much like Gohan and Krillin did when they paid a visit to the Namekian elder). As Majin Vegeta, the ‘Demon Prince’ was powerful enough to go toe-to-toe with SSJ2 Goku, and proved to be more than a match. Even after blowing himself up Vegeta retained the power from his Majin state through training, much like Goku did with his Godly power during his battle with Beerus.

2. He Defeats/Kills the Ginyu Force!

Sometimes being a saiyan really does pay off. In Vegeta’s case he actually kills the entire Ginyu Force because of sneak attacks and power level (Zenkai) boost while on Namek. Ginyu himself wasn’t killed until Resurrection ‘F’ when Ginyu changed from being a frog to one of Frieza’s soldier’s Tagoma. Gohan defeated him, but the Saiyan Prince kills him.

1. He’s The Oldest Z-Fighter!

At this point in the franchise Vegeta is older than the recurring main cast (with a few exceptions). He was five when Goku was born, so that makes him four years older than Krillin. (With Yamcha, Tien, and Bulma coming just a year younger than the Saiyan Prince.) By the time the Buu Sage swung around, it was confirmed that Vegeta is indeed older than the rest of the main cast; physically and mentally.

So there you have it! The seven things about everyone’s favorite saiyan prince you never knew. Although his heart has mellowed out, one thing that will never change about Vegeta, is his pride. And that’s a fact!

D&A Crunchyroll Spotlight: Overlord!!

Happy post-Easter to all of you guys and gals who avoided getting pranked on April Fools Day; commonly known as ‘dipping-my-kid-sister’s-hand-into-a-bucket-of-spiders’ day! This filler post got a little delayed today, but don’t worry cuz’ we’ve got another anime title from the great guys and staff from Crunchyroll, to share with you. For all of you MMORPG players out there who happen to like anime, we’ve got just the title for you! 🙂

Overlord-Season-2-English-Dub-Announced-For-Anime-By-Funimation-Number-Of-Episodes-Confirmed-In-2018

Our Crunchyroll Spotlight title we’ve got for you is none other than a fantasy anime called Overlord! Basically the plot goes like this; a DMMORPG (Dive Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game) called Yggdrasil was released in the year 2126. It is the most advanced DMMORPG of its kind due to the fact that it has heightened the interactive factor between the player, and the game. After a 12-year run the game servers are about to be shut down, as one of the members of the game’s strongest guilds; Ainz Ooal Gown, known by the character Momonga, continues to stay logged in until the day the game servers shut down for good. (Sadden by the fact that all of his friends have real lives and decided to quit the game.)

Upon the day of the shut-down Momonga discovers that the world of Yggdrasil, has been recreated as a reality of its own. All of its NPC’s have been brought to life as Momonga finds himself trapped in his character avatar. Since he can’t log out or do any other functions as a human being, Momonga sets off to find out if other players are trapped in this world along with him; taking on his former guild name.

So far there are currently two seasons of this anime title on Crunchyroll as well as FunimationNow. Although its under the fantasy genre, there’s a little bit of everything; except the ‘child-safety switch’. Should you get the chance you should check this anime title out if you’re a fan of MMORPG’s and fantasy. That’s all we’ve got for now but stick around, cuz’ there’s more posts coming up! 😉
