2020 Holiday Gift Guide

Not sure of what to get your loved ones for the holidays? Perhaps I can help! Here are some things we got recently that we really like and think would make excellent gifts for others.
  • Earth Defense Force 5 - My wife and I played through this game a few months ago and had an absolute blast! With split-screen local co-op, over 100 stages, 5 difficulty levels, and online play, you'll never have so much fun killing giant insects and space aliens.
  • Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered - If you're looking for a single player game and are even a casual fan of Ghostbusters, this game is worth picking up, especially with the new Ghostbusters Afterlife movie just over the horizon.
  • Cowboy Bebop Blu-ray Set - Since you're here, you're probably an anime fan which means you're probably already familiar with this excellent bounty hunting sci-fi anime. The Blu-ray transfer looks fantastic, way better the cable TV broadcast I watched all those years ago.
  • Anime Loot Crate - If you're looking for a little anime variety pack you can't go wrong here. My box included a My Hero Academia t-shirt, RWBY Crescent Rose Prop Replica, Final Fantasy manga, Kabaneri air freshener, and Fruits Basket button pin set.
  • The Mandalorian 6" Black Series - We love The Mandalorian show so we had to add this to our collection of over 50 6" Star Wars Black Series figures. They also have him with his silver armor but we prefer this weathered look, and it pairs great with the Baby Yoda figure.

What is Anime?

Anime (アニメ) is, in the simplest term, animation from Japan. As you can imagine, this covers a whole heck of a lot of varying artistic styles, many of which differ quite drastically, yet the common thread through it all is exaggeration. Characters having large eyes or exuberant unnaturally colored hair are often the first features to stand out for a person new to anime, but there are also techniques such as colored lines or icons drawn over faces to indicate specific emotions or temporary physical deformations such as flattening a face when a character is struck hard or turning them into a "chibi", which is a short, super-cute version of the character with a really large head and small body.

Example Example Example

Anime is produced in three basic forms, on television, as Original Video Animations (OVA), and as full length feature films. Of these three mediums, movies typically have the best art and animation, as they have more development time and a larger budget, whereas television anime has more time to delve deep into a story and develop the characters. Unlike a lot of Western cartoon where plots are created and concluded in a single episode, television anime tends to have stories that span across the entire season, making it important to watch the show in order and hopefully not miss any episodes!

Anime isn't just for kids or sci-fi and fantasy geeks either, as it spans every type of genre imaginable. Some are made for young children, where others are strictly for adults only. No matter who you are, there is sure to be anime out there that melds with your desires, so please don't be turned off to anime as a whole if you happen to come across one or two series that you didn't care for. Try a different genre, or a different animation studio, because once you find that one show that emotionally touches you like no other before it, you will be hooked! So go find that anime, and experience the wonder of Japanese Animation!

toco toco documentary series

For everyone out there that is already a huge fan of anime and manga (link is to an Android manga app) there is a short-documentary series on YouTube called “toco toco” that follows Japanese creators and artists which I would recommend checking out. New episodes are released the first of every month.
