HunterXHunter, an anime series that ended in 2004 (Well that’s what I got from Wikipedia); currently has a new anime with new animation, music, and other bells and whistles. And while watching the new series, I couldn’t help but notice that they toned down the violence. Brutal death scenes; that I am now being re-introduced to by reading the manga, is now being censored with a mass reduction of blood being shown. It’s not blatantly censored, they cleverly hide the gore and death scenes in a way that if you never seen the show before, you wouldn’t notice. But it will be obvious if you’re like me and looking forward to those scenes.

At first I thought this was being done to speed the anime along so they can get to the good parts. Kinda like what happened in the beginning of Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood (Another good show. If you haven’t already, get on that!). And once they reach a good point of the show, a switch is flipped, and all the gore in it’s entirety will start to be shown. But so far, that does not look to be the case. On a past episode, a character reveals a trait about himself by… Let’s just say he pulls a Kano. A scene that I was looking forward to seeing, but what was actually shown left me with a “WTF!” As you can tell, I’m trying really hard not to be spoilery, because this is a really good show and I don’t won’t to ruin it for you. But for me, that last scene was my breaking point, and I’m currently only reading the managa of the series.

Right now, can’t really reccommend the new series of HunterXHunter, I suggest watching the older series that came out before 2004, or just reading the manga. But who knows, there maybe is a switch planned for the new series, that they don’t plan on flipping until way later in the show. But I plan on relying on The Unofficial Hunter x Hunter Podcast for letting me know when and if that ever happens, and until then, I will be just reading the manga. And if you are interested in HunterXHunter or just a big fan or the show, I also reccommend you listening to their podcast.

Once again, it’s time for a Weckyboy Moment. Where I talk about what’s on the top of my mind at the moment.

Zoe Saldana

Zoe Saldana, she is a terrific actress. And she’s hot too, I might add. But people, why do you pronounce her name as “Zoey,” when it clearly should be pronounced “Zoh.” I mean, when you read the name Joe, you don’t pronounce it as “Joey” do you? So please people, when you are pronouncing her name, say “Zoh.”

This has been a Weckyboy Moment.

Currently, there is buzz, rumors, reports, and whatever else you can call it, on that the folks at Nintendo are going to announce the successor to the Nintendo Wii soon. And to that, I say BULLSHIT!

I’m sorry, but its not like I (or anybody else, for that matter) haven’t heard this before. There was Michael Pachter with his claims about Wii HD (More about Pachter: Click here ), and there was that time when the head of Square Enix, Yoichi Wada predicting that Wii HD was coming soon. And there were tons of other non-creditable news and blog sites telling that “Wii 2 is coming,” or “be prepared for the Wii HD.” And it’s not like Nintendo was egging this on, they have on countless times shot down these claims that a new console was in the works. Iwata, the president of Nintendo himself, even came out and said in his own words “Shut the fuck up, and stop with all these damn rumors!” Well he didn’t say it like that, but I know how to read between the lines.

It’s not like I’m not excited for a new Nintendo console. It’s just like that old say,”Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me eight or more times, shame on me.” And some of news on the system just sounds like its fake. The “Wii 2” is said to be more powerful than both the PS3 and the X-Box, have  a tablet like controller that features a touch screen and have the capability to be used as an sensor bar for the Wii remote.  Do I need Admiral Ackbar to come explain to you that this is a trap?

If this so called new Nintendo console is real, then I’m all for it. But until Reggie or Iwata come out and confirm it themselves, I’m saying that it’s BULLSHIT. And so, I leave you with links to multiple news sites about this.
