So it’s lunch time. What are you eating? Would you like some human? Yum, delicious human meat. Tastes like chicken, right? Well now you can be the judge. Hold on. Don’t freak out. No where, and no business, is serving actual human meat because if nothing else it would attract a lot of attention from the city’s health and safety office, not to mention the police department. But in the spirit of cannibalism (if that’s a thing), a pair of chefs from the United Kingdom are giving fans of the series The Walking Dead a chance to enjoy an opportunity for virtual cannibalism, all in the name of promoting the fifth season of the zombie apocalypse drama.

As well all know, unauthorized pictures from the set of Star Wars Episode VII has been a problem from the word “Go.” Sometimes though, we do get some legit stuff, legit peaks behind the curtain at Pinewood, like J.J. Abramsresponse to the leaks. In another legit peak from the set, this one’s all business. Because if there’s one thing that can get a director and a producer of a mega-franchise out of a media hidey-hole, it’s the guy that controls the purse strings in the U.K. (more…)

If you are an Anime fan, you’ll know that the three longest running Anime/Manga so far are Once Piece, Naruto and Bleach. I remember these particular Anime/Manga appearing around the end of my freshman and the beginning of my sophomore year of high school. I’m currently a Senior in COLLEGE. So yeah, these three Titans of the Anime/Manga world have been around longer than many other Anime or Manga in ciruculation since Inuyasha, Dragonball Z, and my favorite Sailor Moon, which is making a comeback with bi-monthly reprints that started earlier this year.

In February, a Japanese Magazine made a small announcement that the Bleach anime series would be ending March 27th, and it set the Internet on fire. People began making theories of what would become of Bleach. Some said it would make a comeback with a slightly different name, like Naruto did when it became Naruto: Shippuden and went forward in time from the events of the  former series. Others though, began to slowly accept the reality that the show was really over and instead began the contemplation of how long the manga would last.

(original article from Japan announcing the last episode of Bleach)

Seeing as Tite Kubo, the creator of Bleach, has been saying that the current arc of Bleach in manga format will be the “last arc” there has been no definite date or year that this arc will finish. This is what is leading many to speculate that there will be a small break of non-filler/no air time, before they just pop back up with the LAST season.  As of today, two days after the set ending of the show, there have been no reports of the show coming back on air just reminders that the manga is still being released.

The U.S & United Kingdom will probably not begin to see the last arc until about a year or so from now, after it is dubbed. Voice actors Johnny Young Bosch, Stephanie Sheh, Michelle Ruff, Jamieson Price, and  the other members of the American cast will assuredly be missed for their roles in such a monumental piece of otaku/anime culture that has made a large impact on the current generation of Anime/Manga lovers everywhere.

While I’m sure some Otaku’s may be reading this, my friends included,wondering whether I’ll give spoilers or my opinion on the last episode I’ll just let you know now that I’m not planning on it unless there is a ‘desperate’ need for my opinion. If you’d like to know what happened in the last episode “google it” and you’ll find many blogs that have posted up a play by play with comments on the last episode.

The last episode of the series Ep. 366  entitled Changing History, Unchanging Hearts is part of the 16th Season, also known as the Lost Substitute Shinigami arc. The arc takes place seventeen months after the teenager Ichigo Kurosaki lost his Soul Reaper powers and meets a man known as Kugō Ginjō who proposes him to recover them.
What are your favorite memories involving Bleach? Whether its meeting with friends in High School or College, what was your favorite arc, or if it helped you through a difficult time go ahead and share with us we want to hear your story?

You know what your parents used to say about playing videogames, that “they could kill you” if you played them for too long? Hell, you may have seen this on a certain television show about numerous ways to die, but this is all too real.

20-year-old Chris Staniforth of the United Kingdom died last May from a condition called deep vein thrombosis, which is caused by sitting in the same spot for an extremely long period of time. After staying in the same place long enough he sadly died due to unfortunate circumstances he could have controlled. Big deal right? Wrong.

Prior to his death, Staniforth spent up to 12 hours at a time playing Halo on his Xbox. 12 hours a day tossing sticky grenades and tea bagging n00bs, his Spartan probably got more exercise in those 12 hours then Chris did all month and that’s just sad. According to the coroner, “There was a blood clot that formed in Staniforth’s leg that moved up to his lungs to cause a fatal pulmonary embolism.” Even though his gaming habits sound like the main cause of death, Staniforth’s dad David, doesn’t blame Microsoft for what has already occurred.

Mr. Staniforth said, “After my research I saw there was no difference to Chris sitting at a desk on his Xbox and someone on a long-haul flight.” Microsoft, the company that produces the Xbox, claims that they always encourage gamers to take breaks from playing throughout the day. And you very well should, take at the very least a recommended 15 minute break for every hour of game play people. Even if it’s just to get up, take a piss, grab another cold one or even to see what daylight looks like for a second, just get up and move that’s all that’s asked of you.

Playing to be the number one gamer in anything sounds like fun, but you shouldn’t get all caught up in it. It’s only a game and that game allows you to re-spawn if you die in it, you however will not.
