Humanity’s Last Hope

Good morning my loyal Painkillers, and welcome to another addition of Anime Wednesday. Today we are going to be talking about, a really short, but really good series. I think that this series is really underrated, but hopefully after this, it will get the recognition that it truly deserves. So without further delay, let’s dive into Blue Submarine No. 6.

On The Isle of Gods

Good morning everyone, and welcome the next installment in our journey of Inuyasha. Today we will be talking about the fourth movie. If you haven’t seen the articles on the first three movies, you can go back into the archive and check them out, and let us know what you think. Well then, now with that said, let’s get into the final movie! Here is Inuyasha Movie 4: Fire On The Mystic Island.

The movie opens up on what we later found out is called Horai Island. We see six half demon children, five seem to be dealing with some kind of spell that is on them, and they are telling the other child named Ai, to flee the island. She flees, and starts to be attacked by the Four War Gods. She is saved by Inuyasha and friends. The group is surprised that Ai knows who Inuyasha is.

He explains how he knows Ai, and the legend of Horai Island. Inuyasha is drawn to the island due to the fact that when he and Kikyo visited the island fifty years ago, he was marked by the Four War Gods. In order to break the spell that is on him, and the other children on the island, they must defeat the War Gods. As they set out to Horai Island, we find out that Sesshomaru is also on his way to the island. Sometime around the death of his father, Sesshomaru had a run in with one of the War Gods, and ended up getting marked as well. Will Sesshomaru, Inuyasha, and the others be able to defeat the Four War Gods? Well, find out by watching the movie yourself.

OK, so let me start off by saying, yes, this is my favorite movie of the four. I enjoyed the story, and the action that this movie brings. This one does feel a little different from the other three movies, and the series, but they were able to pull it off, and it works. Maybe this feels different, because this movie takes place after the original series. So for those of you that are watching the series, and plugging in the movies after the espoides I told you they come in between, this movie comes right after the original 167 episode series. Once again, I found this movie on Netflix, so I’m naming them the unofficial sponsor of Inuyasha month, since they are not giving us a dime, even though I have been telling everyone that reads this that they have all four movies, and the the original series are up there. Well by the time I’m writing this anyway.

Thanks everyone for showing up each week and reading my take on all the Inuyasha movies. I hope that you all enjoyed this, and that you liked and shared these articles. Hopefully if this is successful, I can do another month like this, and hopefully things will go smoother than this month. Here, I would close out Inuyasha month, but I have a surprise for you. Come back on Tuesday, July 31st, and see what the surprise is, and to close out Inuyasha month!

Mobile Fighter Ready…. FIGHT!

Good morning Painkillers, and welcome to another addition of Anime Wednesday. Today I have a good one for you, and it’s another one of my favorites. Many of you may already know what that means, that’s right we are going Gundam once again. This series is much different than the other Gundam series that I have presented in the past. So let’s get into it, here is Mobile Fighter G Gundam.

In this series, it doesn’t take place in the regular Universal Century timeline, but rather a alternate Future Century timeline. In this timeline, most of the human population currently lives on space colonies, that are assigned to the countries on Earth. The Earth is currently in ruins, and there are not many people that live there. They don’t have wars to decide things. Instead, every four years they set up a Gundam Fighting Tournament. Each country sends a fighter down to Earth to have one on one fight against each other. So basically like a robot boxing or MMA matches. The winner of the tournament, their country rules for the next four years.

The show follows Neo Japan’s Gundam fighter, Domon Kasshu. He is preparing himself for the 13th Gundam Fights. Along with his childhood friend and machanic, Rain Mikamura, they travel the Earth challenging other Gundam fighters. They also have another mission. They are looking for Domon’s older brother Kyoji, who apparently stole an experimental Dark Gundam mobile suit from the Neo Japan government.

This 49 espoide series is one of the best Gundam series out there. The style of the Gundams are so different than the other Gundams, with the stand up cockpit system that actually reacts to the pilots movement. Domon’s interactions with Rain and the other Gundam fighters helps with the uniqueness of the show, especially how things end up near the end. I believe that this is currently on Hulu, so if you haven’t seen this show before, or want to watch it again, now is the time. Until next time Painkillers.

Beastmode Activate!

Good morning my loyal Painkillers, and welcome to another addition of Grab A Buddy Monday. Some of you may have noticed the title and the picture, and if you were at the HBCL from the beginning, you may be asking yourself, didn’t The Chairman do this game already? The answer is, yes he did. He did it for his games that scared the shit out of him series, or whatever he called it. (By the way, the article is called Remolded Varmint, check it out in his archive, it’s a good read.) So hears the deal, I’m looking at it as a two player game, so this is going to be much different than his. There might be some similarities, due to the fact that I have to describe the story, since I don’t know who has played this game, or who has read The Chairman’s article. Anyway, let’s get down to it, you know what time it is. Grab your buddy, hook up your Genesis/Master System, and it’s time to play some Altered Beast.

So the story goes as follows, the Demon God from the Underworld name Neff has kidnapped Zeus’s daughter Athena. (How powerful is Neff to be able to kidnap her?) In order to save his daughter, Zeus resurrects a fallen Greek warrior to go and rescue Athena. That’s where you come in, and in this case your buddy, cause Zeus will resurrect two warriors.

In this side scrolling beat’em up, you and your buddy fight your way through five levels of undead creatures. Along the way, you have to collect these powers orbs, that makes you bigger and stronger. Once you collect three orbs, you transform into a wear beast. Level one is a wearwolf, two is a weardragon, three is a wearbear, four is a weartiger, and the final stage you turn into a golden werewolf. Once you transform, you are now able to take on the stage boss. Careful, because if you take too long collecting the orbs, and clearing the stage, the boss will show up regardless.

This game is alot of fun. It can be a bit difficult, since it did come from an arcade game that was designed to take all your money. Once you get the understanding of the game, you can beat it in about 10 minutes or so. It made be short, but it is worth sitting down playing this game. Until next time Painkillers.

Ninjas Everywhere!!!

Good morning Painkillers new and old, and welcome to another addition of Saturday Morning Cinema. Today’s feature will contain something that most of us always wanted to be, ninjas! Woo-hoo! Feudal Japan, secrets, lies, and ninjas, what more can you ask for. So let’s get into it. Stay in your pajamas, grab the biggest bowl in the house, pour yourself some cereal, and plop down on the couch, and watch Ninja Scrolls.

The movie opens up with the introduction of the main character Jubei Kibagami. He is a mercenary that just completed a job, that other ninjas were originally hired to do, and Jubei did it for less money. Those ninjas confront him, and Jubei quickly handles them with ease.

After the deaths of a nearby village, a ninja team is set out to investigate, unfortunately the team is completely wiped out, except for one named Kagero. She is captured by Tessai, a member of the Eight Devils, a ninja team that has supernatural powers. As Tessai begins to molest Kagero, Jubei is nearby to break it up, and he kills Tessai.

Kagero returns home to report what happens, and is told to find out more information about Tessai, and the rest of his ninja team. Jubei runs into a government spy named Dakuna. He has heard about Jubei killing one of the Eight Devils, and wants his help to kill off the other seven. When Jubei refuses, Dakuna stabs him with a poisonous shuriken, and tells him that he will get the antidote once the remaining Devils are dead.

Will Jubei kill the other devils in time to receive the antidote? Will Kagero get revenge for her fallen comrades? Does Dakuna actually have an antidote for that poison, and if so will he actually give it to Jubei? Will all three of them survive? There is only one way to find out.

This movie came out in Japan in 1993, and the English version came out in 1995. The drawing style is really good, and is what you were used to during that period of time. The story is great, and easy to follow, and Jubei character is loosely based on a legendary samurai warrior. Normally this is where I would tell you what site or streaming service you could find this at, so you guys can watch it for yourself. Unfortunately, since I have this on DVD, I honestly forgot to look for it. Sorry, if I happen to see it somewhere, I will post where I found it at in the comment section. Until next time Painkillers.
