Anime Ichiban 49: A Sea of Stars and Water

Star Wars is turning into an anime while One Piece is turning into a live action. What a timeline to be living in as an anime fan.



Star Wars Visions

The gang is back after a short break! We have a rare instance of a Western franchise getting the anime treatment with Star Wars Visions but don’t get comfortable yet, because to balance it out One Piece is now getting a Netflix live-action adaptation and the gang isn’t sure if that’s a net positive or net negative.

Heralding from the rustic, old town of Los Angeles, California; Matthew now resides in Boston where he diligently researches the cure for cancer. In reality, though, he just wants to play games and watch anime, and likes talking about them way too much. A Nintendo/Sony hybrid fan with a soft-spot for RPG’s, he finds little beats sinking hours into an immersive game world.
