Inside the Game of Thrones – Three to go: Hardhome

After seven relatively quiet weeks the fifth season of Game of Thrones finally picked up steam with the first two of its final three episodes: “Hardhome” and a “Dance of Dragons”. The anticipation surrounding what had come to be known as the turning point of each Game of Thrones season, the ninth episode, had cooled somewhat following the unexpectedly bombastic eighth entry. Whereas the books kept the events at Hardhome neatly tucked away at the edge of the world, with no Point-Of-View characters to bear witness to it, the series decided to unleash the wrath of the White Walker army and its Night King in earnest. The ninth episode took an even more daring sidestep away from the books, resulting in another stomach-twisting, tear-jerking moment that will have fans talking for weeks to come. Without further ado, let’s get to it.

In de Game of Thrones – Drie te gaan: Hardhome

Na zeven relatief rustige weken pakte het vijfde seizoen dik uit voor haar achtste aflevering, namelijk “Hardhome” en de negende aflevering: “Dance of Dragons.” The torenhoge verwachtingen die de negende aflevering normaliter omringen, denk maar eens terug aan de Red Wedding en het noodlot van Eddard Stark, zijn dit jaar wellicht iets minder hooggespannen gezien de knal die de achtste aflevering maakte. Waar de boeken de gebeurtenissen in Hardhome voornamelijk buiten het bereik van de lezer hield, gooide de serie Jon Snow en wij met hem vol in de actie. De Night King en zijn White Walker leger maakte hun waarachtige terugkeer op schokkende wijs bekend, en de negende aflevering liet nog maar eens zien dat Game of Thrones geen grenzen kent als het op sterfgevallen aankomt.

Otaku Thursday – Dragon Ball Super

IT TOOK 18 YEARS, BUT LOOK AT WHAT WE GOT!

It’s been a good few years for Dragonball (Z), for some reason. There was the ‘Battle of Gods’ movie in 2013, now there’s Revival of F of course and we’re even getting a new anime named Dragon Ball Super.

That’s not even all though, because just yesterday it was announced that the upcoming anime will also get a manga adaption to go with it! We’re not sure why everyone felt like making major Dragon Ball projects again, but we’re certainly not complaining.

What do we really know about the upcoming anime and manga, though?

Otaku Thursday – Attack on Titan

THE BIGGER THEY ARE, THE HARDER THEY KICK YOUR ASS

It’s never immediately clear if a new manga will make it or not. So many never get their breakthrough and even when they do it’s not always easy to point at one thing that caused it. Of course there’s always a few like Attack on Titan, where popularity snowballs so quickly and it gains such wide international reach that you can barely surf the web for more than 5 minutes without running into an Attack on Titan meme.

Why, though? While it has an intriguing story, Attack on Titan is hardly the first manga/anime with this formula. Let’s take a look, shall we?
