MyAnimeList Rating: 8,81/10
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Drama, Sci-Fi, Space
Studios: Sunrise
Author: Shinichiro Watanabe (Story) Yutaka Nanten (Art) Hajime Yatate (Story)
Seiyuu: Kouichi Yamadera, Aoi Tada, Megumi Hayashibara


Cowboy Bebop is one of the anime that can be regarded as the best science fiction anime in the 90s era. I’ve also been watching this anime for a long time and this anime is very different from many aspects when compared to anime nowadays. We know that nowadays, fans are more interesting in an idol, moe, waifu, harem, and so on that the story in the anime is forgotten. I also really like the things like that but this is one that causes why the anime is best compared to the anime of the 90s. If watching at the present time, Cowboy Bebop loses the sensation of the terms I mentioned earlier but if glanced from various aspects ranging from artwork to storyline, Cowboy Bebop is said to be the best sci-fi anime of 1998.

Spike

“Cowboy Bebop,” tells about Spike Spiegel (Kouchi Yamadera) is a bounty hunter who has an easy going nature but is very reliable in the world of martial arts. Taking a back spot away from the future, Spike Siegel teamed up with Jet Black (Unshou Ishizuka), Faye Valentine (Megumi Hayashibara), and Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivrusky IV (Aoi Tada) crossed a galaxy to search for high-priced fugitives every day.

Cowboy Bebop is a masterpiece of Sunrise Studio that tries to produce something different from others series. It might be rather difficult to explain why this anime is so great for reviewers and critics. In fact, even in the international world is always glorified by this masterpiece. First of all, let’s try to think that this is not an anime. Cowboy Bebop is like a series made by a successful American from its novel adaptation. This series is made as if it were watched by adults only, who love the action movie and science fiction. Cowboy Bebop like a Trigun or Black Lagoon that can only be watched by adults only, although for the present is also very difficult to find anime of this kind. If it’s made, it may fail greatly because of the market demand that is off the mark.

Knockin' On Heavens Door

Cowboy Bebop is an image that successfully raised the anime to the international world. That is why outsider more prefer this anime over other anime. As Orson Scott Card says, an American novelist, critic, and public speaker: Cowboy Bebop has turned a perception of what people always say badly about anime. Cowboy Bebop managed to make the anime better than its stereotype as a story that made it a big achievement in the sci-fi genre. Cowboy Bebop is more aimed at the episodic system and focuses more on becoming itself like an American Serial TV that always has a continuous plot from time to time like one of the anime that I have reviewed also titled Monster. Both series have a continuous plot so that many people who are very interested to watch both the series even those who don’t like anime will also like it.

For the size of the Cowboy Bebop series, it can be said to be like the Samurai Champloo series which I have also reviewed. Both series are more focused on a genre of action even though the author seems not to focus on that genre. Both series also sometimes have an unpredictable story ranging from characters to existing stories. Each episode feels random because sometimes we will be made laughing, sometimes we will be made touched, and sometimes we will be amazed of his action. In essence, both series are very difficult to guess. Just like the Monster series, sometimes we are always surprised to be plot-twisty in every episode. Cowboy Bebop has an impressing story that neatly and sensibly enough to be surprised because of this series.

Spike Siegel

One more thing about this series is that although this series is titled “Cowboy” in its title, this series doesn’t focus on the theme of the cowboy. We will be amazed by a very cool space-shaped cowboy. Sounds weird, right? For some people, it may sound strange. Why you have to create a nonsense story like this? Hold on, dude. Cowboy Bebop takes on the feel of exoticism and the culture of outsiders like the Indians living in a desert on Mars, a Red Dragon syndicate who always believes in mystical things, Vicious who relies more on katana in some of his battles, and Spike Siegel who owns Jeet Kune Do. Of course, the sci-fi elements aren’t lost out like a western movie with sophisticated technologies.


Overall, Cowboy Bebop is a masterpiece that everyone should be obliged to watch it. Although this series has been long enough, this series still remains to watch but for you who like it. I was also a bit lazy to watch it when the beginning of the first episode started, but I forced myself to watch it to the end and managed to understand what this series is trying to explain us.

Game – Day Of Infamy [REVIEW] – Experience Close-quarters Battles In Iconic WWII Settings

Steam Rating: 9/10
Genre: First-person Shooter, Action, Strategy
Developer: New World Interactive
Publisher: New World Interactive
Engine: Source
Platforms: Microsoft Windows, OS X, Linux


A game that takes the theme of World War 2 with a shooter theme called Day of Infamy yesterday has announced in steam for a free weekend starting from October 12-16 yesterday. For the Developers, New World Interactive may take a little theme from Call of Duty: WWII which will come in November this year. Day of Infamy is a game for a savior of gamers for those who like realistic shooter game because this game is a game of world war 2 themes best like Call of Duty.

“Day of Infamy,” takes us to the closest experience from a second world war situation. Players will be aimed at protecting the line, attacking by the shore, burning all existing enemies, or using the radio in order to call the attacking support from the air. Day of Infamy is a multiplayer game of cooperation that will make the players feel a game that never existed.

Insurgency

To become the attraction of the players, Day of Infamy developed a war game with a new update in Brittany, France. The game developer has also added a feature to an area in a forest, Black Panther Africa battalion tank, and Australian soldiers. A big notice has also emerged that Day of Infamy released a map for a greatest war movie made by Christopher Nolan named Dunkirk that every player can play.

A shooter game enthusiasts WWII themes like this may be slightly different from other war theme games because this game has a rather difficult to control. Some players say this is a game where the realistic level really feels. But, some say that the weakness in this game is located on the radar that sometimes always cause misunderstandings, jumpscare because of sudden attack players don’t know where the shots appear and bugs that sometimes occur. Day of Infamy is like the Red Orchestra and Rising Storm which has the same theme with the same control.

DOI

Players who just want to find a realistic graphic will be very unsuited for this game. Day of Infamy is not concerned with how good a graphic it is but Day of Infamy has a very admirable gameplay. The gamers say that this game is the most difficult FPS game they have ever played. As I said before, this game does have a difficult control. Experience the sensation of Day of Infamy is how you can manage skill and class that will be useful to play later. There is nothing wrong with this game but this game isn’t a failed game if it’s equated with Call of Duty or Battlefield.


Overall, Day of Infamy is a great game to play with a medium setting PC. Day of Infamy is not a game that amazes us very much about its graphics but Day of Infamy is concerned with a theme of its WWII and a more focused gameplay so players can enjoy this realistic shooter game.

Anime – Gintama Movie 2: Kanketsu-hen, Yorozuya Yo Eien Nare [REVIEW] – He Doesn’t Have To Fight Alone

MyAnimeList Rating: 9,06/10
Genre: Action, Sci-Fi, Comedy, Historical, Parody, Samurai, Shounen
Studios: Sunrise
Author: Hideaki Sorachi
Seiyuu: Tomokazu Sugita, Rie Kugimiya, Daisuke Sakaguchi


Gintama Movie 2: Kanketsu-hen – Yorozuya yo Eien Nare or Gintama: The Movie: The Final Chapter: Be Forever Yorozuya is the 2nd movie of the Gintama series produced by Studio Sunrise. This movie is also a bit more interesting than the first movie before just for this movie is slightly different from what are Gintama show to us. For this second movie, we will be made laugh out loud, sad, confused, and amazed simultaneously because for Gintama Movie 2 presents a variety action that is very epic but doesn’t forget the usual comedy that Gintama always present.

Gintama 2

“Gintama Movie 2: Kanketsu-hen” will tell about Sakata Gintoki (Tomokazu Sugita) who is thrown into the future. Beginning of the story, Gintoki got a man who pirates a movie in a theater. Then, he somehow suddenly transported into a world where the city of Edo was stricken with an epidemic called “White Plague.” Thrown into 5 years of the future, Shinpachi Shimura (Daisuke Sakaguchi) and Kagura (Rie Kugimiya) work independently because Gintoki in the future has died. By disguise into an unknown person, Gintoki must reunite Yorozuya in order to investigate White Plague and find the key to the gloomy lie of the future.

For the 2nd movie from Gintama, I would say that this movie isn’t wrong that rated high on the internet. In closing of this anime Gintama, this film presents us all the elements that can be spelled out for the size of a movie like this. Sometimes has a funny comedy, a very touching drama, a somewhat elusive story and a very epic action that is very neat and very unusual. Of course, Gintama still presents something a bit original in it.

Silver Gintama

The soundtrack that was performed in this movie is fairly spelled out for anime movie like this. Genjou Destruction by SPYAIR is one of the craziest and epic soundtracks, perfect for this original movie and the battle presented with a bit of humor is perfect. Anime type Shounen is always present a soundtrack that will pump his audience. However, for this anime has very impressive in presenting a soundtrack.

If we compared by his TV series may be lost in animation because we can’t imagine how the movie from Gintama is a bit different from the anime series. The artwork of an action is illustrated in detail, filled colorful when viewed in good quality. The problem that is here only one if for myself that there is no difference from the artwork of characters from the movie to anime series. All look the same when compared. But that’s just my word. The result is very fantastic when viewed whole.


Overall, this movie can be watched by anyone even for those who don’t watch Gintama can also watch it. Gintama always makes us laugh, touched, even amazed at the same time. However, this movie changes our minds if this becomes more epic compared to its anime.

 

Anime – Gintama Movie 1: Shinyaku Benizakura-hen [REVIEW] – Yorozuya Crew Find Themselves In The Midst Of A Major Conspiracy

MyAnimeList Rating: 8,58/10
Genre: Action, Sci-Fi, Comedy, Historical, Parody, Samurai, Shounen
Studios: Sunrise
Author: Hideaki Sorachi
Seiyuu: Tomokazu Sugita, Rie Kugimiya, Akira Ishida


Gintama: The Movie or known it by the name of Gintama: Shin’yaku Benizakura-Hen is a summary of the episode Gintama 58-61, which here tells about the Benizakura Arc. Gintama was produced by Studio Sunrise since 2006 and for this movie will retell how Kotarou Katsura was attacked by the aliens of Kihetai. In this movie too, Warner Bros participated in the making of this movie even though they didn’t confirm about this movie. However, Gintama movie was a great success in 2010 and successfully aired in all theaters from various countries.

Gintoki

“Gintama: Movie 1,” tells about Sakata Gintoki (Tomokazu Sugita) and his idiot friends, Kagura (Rie Kugimiya) and Shinpachi Shimura (Daisuke Sakaguchi) will venture into a futuristic where the aliens still haunt the city of Edo. Kotarou Katsura (Akira Ishida) is disappeared after being attacked by an unknown group of assassins. Shinpachi and Kagura begin their investigation to find Katsura. On the other hand, Gintoki gets a sword named Benizakura who isn’t know who the owner is. This Yorozuya will break a conspiracy from Benizakura’s side and Gintoki will join into a battlefield to enter the enemy headquarters. Together, an epic adventure as well as a comedy that will make us laugh at the beginning.

I will not write much about this movie because this movie is just a summary of this Gintama series. Indeed for Benizakura Arc in the TV Series is not epic like this movie, but the dialogues that exist and action scenario is very fascinating. The portrayal that had initially failed a bit in his TV Series began to improve in this movie. Some background music that supports animation and some altered angel cameras make this movie much different from its series.

Benizakura Arc

But what’s make different about Gintama movie and series? The answer has many differences. Because helped by Warner Bros, Gintama for this movie version has something original of his own. For Gintama fans will feel it much different from the series, because they will realize that this is just a remake of some popular arc. If you just watch this movie but never watch the anime, maybe a bit disappointing for anyone new to Gintama because this anime presents an unusual adventure comedy action.


Overall, this movie can be enjoyed by anyone who wants to watch it especially for fans who really like Naruto, One Piece or other mainstream anime. However, Gintama is not a mainstream anime in my opinion. The story is very easy to understand and presents a very mesmerizing action. The movie is good, but for someone who is unfamiliar with Gintama, it may seem strange to them.

Movie – Baby Driver [REVIEW] – All You Need Is One Killer Track

IMDB Rating: 8,0/10
Genre: Action, Crime, Music
Director: Edgar Wright
Writer: Edgar Wright
Stars: Ansel Elgort, Jon Bernthal, Jon Hamm


Baby Driver is Edgar Wright’s most anticipated movie of this year. Although it has been running in theaters, I just recently watched this movie. Somehow, this movie is good but the rating is just too dramatic. I just don’t know what the other people think but I might just think it’s just because I only watched it once. Edgar Wright also previously made the films we known through Shaun of the Deat, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, The World’s End, and others. This time, Edgar Wright made something new in this year.

“Baby Driver,” tells about a robber driver named Baby who always relies on a tap of music he plays in order to become a reliable driver. Just after she met his first sighting girl, Baby had discovered that his life had to be transformed into someone who had a normal life. Forced by his criminal boss, Baby along with his music must be able to survive in the criminal world he always encounters.

Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx, Flea, Edgar Wright, and Lanny Joon in Baby Driver (2017)

The actor who plays in this movie is also pretty good, especially who plays Baby. Previously, Ansel Elgort who plays Baby had also played in one of the famous films in 2014 titled, The Fault in Our Stars. In addition, he also had a role in the film Divergent series by Veronica Roth. There are Jon Bernthal, Jon Hamm, Eiza González, and Lily James. Lily James also played Cinderella in the movie Cinderella in 2015. Although Kevin Spacey plays a role in this movie as well, he is not too flashy and may only be narrowed by Ansel Elgort so Kevin Spacey isn’t too special here. But, overall for Kevin Spacey is pretty good.

Kevin Spacey and Ansel Elgort in Baby Driver (2017)

Because the film is a musical genre, it is also true that the use of music is chosen carefully from the scenario. The music here is a very important thing in this film. Edgar Wright made something new this year, how an action film is accompanied by an existing music beat. The use of music in this film is very influential, especially the choreography is also very detailed. Starting from very small movements up to the scene of walking or gun pointing, all accompanied by music so suitable for each scene. We can be spelled out if the use of music here is also very carefully selected by the author.


Overall, this movie is good but the rating is too high. Honestly, I really did not see what the specialty of this movie. However, the acting and visual effects that are made here are amazing even though some of his screenplays is still lacking. This movie is very amazing to watch by everyone because this movie feels like new and has a unique idea.

Anime – Sword Art Online Movie: Ordinal Scale [REVIEW] – Following The New Craze

MyAnimeList Rating: 8,23/10
Genre: Action, Game, Adventure, Romance, Fantasy
Studios: A-1 Pictures
Author: Reki Kawahara (Story), IsII (Art)
Seiyuu: Yoshitsugu Matsuoka, Haruka Tomatsu, Sayaka Kanda


After the success of the two-season anime series and some game titles adapted, this time in 2017 will be present an adaptation of animated films. This Reki Kawahara work’s aired in so many various countries, including Indonesia. The story in this film is also directly written by Reki Kawahara and Tomohiko Ito again directed this film which previously also directed 2 seasons of Sword Art Online.

4 years passed after the incident Sword Art Online, the Japanese people loved the presence of a new device called AUGMA that using Augmented Reality. The workings of this device are unique because it can be used anywhere with a function as a medium of communication, entertainment, and play games. In this device, there is also a MMORPG game named Ordinal Scale. Kirito and his friends didn’t want to miss trying the game. But while others get used to the game, Kirito still cannot be fully interested in the Ordinal Scale because it claims to be more comfortable playing VR than AR. One day, Ordinal Scale presents an event featuring boss monsters from Sword Art Online. Amid the presence of various monsters from Aincrad, the presence of a virtual idol named Yuna and also the 2nd ranked Ordinal Scale named Eiji opened a mystery of Ordinal Scale and also the tragedy of Sword Art Online.

Ordinal Scale 1

I just admit it this Sword Art Online movie is better than the previous 2 seasons. In my opinion, there are so many interesting things that we can see in this movie although the core story is still related to the tragedy of Sword Art Online. SAO Movie: Ordinal Scale is an anime that produces a very new story but still has a relationship with SAO in both anime and light novels.

Sword Art Online Movie: Ordinal Scale also presents a stunning visual that uses a 3D structure with an opening from Aincrad tower building which originally became the background of SAO. It is impossible if the 2D animation isn’t in this movie because it is also something that is its own appeal in terms of visual. The 2D animation in this movie comes with a very riveting. Various kinds of animations are very smooth to flashy and filled with a very tense fighting scene that makes Ordinal Scale can give the impression of exciting in this film. Instead, the character’s design is also improved in such detail such as the characters of both Kirito and his friends.

Ordinal Scale 2

This film also brings a very far different from SAO, ALO, and GGO. Players who use Ordinal Scale are required to move their own bodies, running in reality and swinging weapons. Therefore, Ordinal Scale brings all its players to play natural, following the player’s body movements. For Kirito, he prefers VR-based physical movements determined by player status compared to AR requiring to move his own body.

Sword Art Online Kirito

Like the Sword Art Online anime, it also brings a feeling of drama and romance that makes some development of the characters. But this romance story is not only Kirito and Asuna alone, but the story of Eiji drama with the virtual idol Yuna as a new character in the introduction in this film. Of all the character development, Yuna has interesting points. Although she is an AI program, Yuna is based on deep-learning technology that makes Yuna look like a human with other players. Yuna here is also the main story for this movie.


Overall, this movie is quite suitable to watch by all teenagers either SAO fans, action anime fans, MMORPG, or even for those of you who don’t like anime can also watch it. The animation shown does look quite interesting. By the way, the last ending song performed by LiSA is good enough to be heard. Also, a surprise is prepared in the after-credit section of this film.

Movie – Inception [REVIEW] – The Dream Is Real

IMDB Rating: 8,8/10
Genre: Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
Director: Christopher Nolan
Writer: Christopher Nolan
Stars: Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page


Christopher Nolan is a director who has a very genius idea through his films. Call it like Memento that makes the audience play his mind because of this movie. If Memento is a film that has a very genius idea, then Inception will also say that. Back in 2010, that year was indeed filled with really cool movies like Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Black Swan, Shutter Island, Despicable Me, and Toy Story 3. That year was filled with a lot of really cool movies, especially Inception that brought its audience with a very different experience compared to other films.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, Ellen Page, Ken Watanabe, and Dileep Rao in Inception (2010)

“Inception,” tells about a shrewd thief named Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) who always performs his actions in the subconscious of a dream person. Together with his partner Arthur (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), they enter a state of mind when the person is in a dream. This ability is often referred to as extraction. Because of their action, Saito (Ken Watanabe) is amazed because of Cobb’s ability and provide a more tough task that is to instill an idea in a person’s mind or so-called inception.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Ken Watanabe in Inception (2010)

If by just reading the synopsis may be somewhat difficult to understand because this movie does have the essence of a very important story. In this film is also definitely Leonardo DiCaprio role in this movie let alone he plays here as a dream thief. To watch this movie also required a very high concentration level like watching other thriller films like Memento. Inception is a genius film that is strong evidence to crown Christopher Nolan as the most genius director.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Berenger, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Ellen Page, and Ken Watanabe in Inception (2010)

In addition, Nolan is also very meticulous in choosing the actors. Call it like Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Ken Watanabe, and Tom Hardy. The actors have indeed made the audience amazed by their names. Nothing stands out and nothing is lacking when all the actors play in this movie. All presented so well balanced. Not to mention the special effects that look smooth in it with the soundtrack that makes the audience beat faster.


Overall, although I don’t write much for this movie, you better watch it yourself rather than having to find out what else is in this movie. This is a masterpiece that can be phenomenal, although this movie I also watch twice to be understood. Fans of Christopher Nolan films certainly love this movie, especially for movie fans with a very complicated story in it and the best actors in it.

Anime – Black Lagoon [REVIEW] – A Non-Stop, High-octane Thriller

MyAnimeList Rating: 8,15/10
Genre: Action, Seinen
Studios: Madhouse
Author: Rei Hiroe
Seiyuu: Megumi Toyoguchi, Daisuke Namikawa, Tsutomu Isobe


If you really want an anime that filled with action and shot scenes everywhere, Black Lagoon is perfect for you. Black Lagoon is an anime made by Madhouse’s studio. Only with this anime, Madhouse really creates an anime that can be pretty crazy. This anime aired on April 9, 2006, to June 25, 2016. Although only 12 episodes, this anime reminds us of a slightly American theme in it and a very short action.

“Black Lagoon,” tells about Rokurou Okajima (Daisuke Namikawa), an employee who was kidnapped by a group of criminals named Black Lagoon Company. Black Lagoon is a freight forwarding service that focuses more on illegal goods such as weapons and human services. When kidnapped, Rokurou thinks that in fact he has been disposed of by his own company. Dumped by his own boss, Rokurou decides to join the Black Lagoon Company. Black Lagoon consists of 3 members, Dutch (Tsutomu Isobe) who leads this group as African descendants, Revy (Megumi Toyoguchi) who is good at using the weapon as a descendant of Chinese-American, and Benny (Hiroaki Hirata) a hacker of Jewish descent.

Black Lagoon (2006)

I ever said in First Impression beforehand that this anime does have its own uniqueness. One of them is the opening song. I very rarely find anime with an opening song that uses the English language. Therefore, this anime gives the impression that looks a little American. In addition, this anime is actually not too leave an interesting impression if only by reading the synopsis. Although quite simple, this anime actually uses a story that focuses more on its action. This anime gives us non-stop action such as shooting, explosion, fighting, to chase without stopping and never bored.

Black Lagoon, Ring-Ding Ship Chase

This anime uses a mini-arc which means the problems in this anime will be solved in 2-3 episodes. No plot is exaggerated in this anime. Character development in the anime is also probably arguably quite interesting though always focus on Rock, Revy, and Balalaika. Dutch who as lead Black Lagoon not too prominent in this anime while Benny also didn’t experience the deepening of any character. This anime also uses characters that have an impression that is too made dominant especially on female characters. This is what makes the audience also a bit disappointed. Despite that, Revy is very different from the others. The point is arguable, Badass.

Black Lagoon, Mangrove Heaven

Although this anime was made in 2006, the quality of the art is arguably good in its years. Its portrayal supports the dark theme atmosphere built by the story in this anime. This uniqueness actually makes the graphics more focused on the genre. If for anime nowadays, very many dark anime that always focus gore than the theme it. However, this anime does have the impression of dark to gore but more focused on the action that makes us cause feelings of tension.


Overall, you need anime that has non-stop action in it? Black Lagoon is a perfect answer. Action presented this anime makes the audience trigger adrenaline. I highly recommend watching this anime, especially for those who like the action genre anime. This is a masterpiece that can’t be missed.

 

Movie – Fury [REVIEW] – War Never Ends Quietly

IMDB Rating: 7,6/10
Genre: Action, Drama, War
Director: David Ayer
Writer: David Ayer
Stars: Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman


Warning, this review contain spoiler!!!

It’s so rare to watch some war movies in 2014, especially if the movie doesn’t satisfy the audience. Some of the best of them are American Sniper, Unbroken, and The Imitation Game. Maybe I don’t really know but this is all I know including this movie. It’s so rarely also some film focus on the story of a “tank” facing difficulties and facing a missile or tank destroyer.

Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Peña, Jon Bernthal, and Scott Eastwood in Fury

“Fury,” tells about a tank named ‘Fury’ led by Don ‘Wardaddy’ Collier (Brad Pitt) and its members Boyd ‘Bible’ Swan (Shia LaBeouf), Trini ‘Gordo’ Garcia (Michael Peña), and Grady ‘ Coon-Ass’ Travis (Jon Bernthal) after they lost one of their members and became the only tank that survived the war. Norman Ellison (Logan Lerman) was forced to join their team even though he had never plunged into the battlefield before and just took part in a typewriter. Wardaddy had to educate the initially innocent Norman into knowing what the harshness of the world war was. In their mission, they must move from one city to another in Germany in order to penetrate the enemy’s defenses. However, their mission isn’t as easy as it is thought because their tanks are defeated sophisticated from Nazi tanks.

One of the main stars in this film is unquestionably Brad Pitt who is able to show the figure of a leader who holds to his own principles. Shia LaBeouf is also not less than Brad Pitt who able to bring the audience feel sad just by looking at his expression. Logan Lerman also previously played in the film Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief is able to make all the audience amazed. Two other actors, Michael Peña and Jon Bernthal also managed to make this movie better.

Logan Lerman

The beginning of this movie is also boring initially until finally, this film is the best war movie in 2014. Lots of scenes that aren’t important actually, but the detail of this film is very beautiful to look. Although David Ayer made a not-so-good movie in 2016, this film looks very good, especially on the cinematography so that scenes that look boring can be enjoyed.

Logan Lerman and Alicia von Rittberg

One of the most memorable scenes in the film is none other than the final battle that requires them to fight a battalion. In addition, the scene of conversation at the dinner table is also somewhat even though it is normal but their acting makes the audience tense when watching it. Some messages are also included in this movie one of them is, Karma. A good person will surely have the kindness that will reward him and vice versa. In addition, this film also greatly shows how cruel man and war. The reality of a war makes all human beings become blood-thirsty psychopaths. Hence it is called, History is crueler to remember.


Overall, although this film also has a shortage that there is little in this movie but David Ayer able to cover the shortage with some acting of famous actors. Therefore, this film is touted as the best war movie in 2014. Recommended for people who really like the war movie or that must be a fan of Brad Pitt.

Anime – Tiger & Bunny [REVIEW] – Hate Become Best Friends

MyAnimeList Rating: 8,09/10
Genre: Action, Mystery, Comedy, Super Power
Studios: Sunrise
Author: Masakazu Katsura, Masafumi Nishida
Seiyuu: Hiroaki Hirata, Masakazu Morita, Nobuhiko Okamoto


Previously, I made the first impression of this anime. Indeed this anime is good but why Japan should make this anime to be ranked first in Japan? This anime is a good start from the side of the story, character, action, and etc. But, I just don’t accept the fact that this anime is ranked first.

Tiger Bunny

“Tiger & Bunny,” tells about a futuristic city in New York called Sternbild City. An incident that afflicts a person becomes a force different from a normal human being. These people are known as “NEXT.” They are known for being superheroes who work under a company that starred in several advertisements. Their action will be aired to the public in the city’s popular channel”Hero TV” that accumulates each hero to collect some points. This point comes from fighting crime, helping civilians, catching criminals and so on. Hero with the highest value will become a “King of Heroes” in a season.

One of the veteran heroes named Kotetsu T. Kaburagi (Hiroaki Hirata) a.k.a. Wild Tiger just got a new partner named Barnaby Brooks Jr. (Masakazu Morita) a.k.a. Bunny. They both originally hated each other because often get into trouble. While doing the activity of the superhero, they tried to find out about the murder of Barnaby’s parents. This hating each person transforms them into friends and partners who trust each other.

Tiger & Bunny is a Japanese TV series produced by Sunrise Studio in 2011. Sunrise Studio is known for its popular anime such as Code Geass, Cowboy Bebop, Gintama, and Accel World. The anime was originally adapted into a one-shot manga by Masakazu Katsura. The manga published in Weekly Young Jump on August 4, 2011, and made 2 sequel films.

I just wanted to say this anime is good to watch. But, what the fuck are you thinking, Japanese? I’m just surprised to see this anime could be ranked first. This anime is good but not as good as being ranked first. One thing is certain why this anime is ranked Japan one because many are sponsoring it. This anime clearly sponsored world-renowned companies such as SoftBank, PEPSI, BANDAI, Amazon, and others. This company is what makes this anime why is ranked first. I’m so sorry for offending you but this is my own opinion only.

In addition, seiyuu of this anime also looks cool as for example Hiroaki Hirata who also cast the voice of Sanji characters from One Piece. In addition to Hiroaki, Masakazu Morita who filled the voice of Ichigo Kurosaki character from the anime Bleach also looks cool. So, they both can be spelled out the professional seiyuu in this anime. There’s also Nobuhiko Okamoto known by cast some various famous anime such as My Hero Academia, Blue Exorcist, Maid Sama!, and others.


Overall, this anime can be a complete package because with the element of action, mecha, drama, humor, bromance and some overpower is perfect for you to watch. Merging between 2D and 3D art is an original artwork of this anime.
