Hunter x Hunter: The Last Mission to be released on Jan. 30th

Hunter x Hunter anime series is no longer producing new episodes, however, Viz Media has released the official trailer for the movie, Hunter x Hunter: The Last Mission. This movie was announced last year and will be released on January 30, 2019. The film will be “screen in various theaters in the United States and Canada. Both the English dub and English subtitled versions of the film will be available, though selection and starting times are varied depending on location.”

The film isn’t actually new. It was released back in 2013, premiering in the USA in 2014 so many anime fans have probably already seen it. Personally, I didn’t like the manga series for Hunter x Hunter but the anime series was wonderful. The film is described as being ” The Battle Olympia tournament at Heaven’s Arena is about to begin, but a terrifying enemy ends the festivities. Gon & Killua must defeat The Shadow before more Hunters fall!” Check put the English dub trailer below:

Dragon Ball Super: Broly Trailer released

Dragon Ball movies are rarely plot heavy, sometimes the story is ever incoherent. However, is that really the most important part of this series? My answer would be no. Fighting is the most important aspect of this series and this latest movie trailer shows that this will be continue to be the hallmark of the series. What surprised me was that it appears to be a remake of the DBZ film “Dragon Ball Z: Broly – The Legendary Super Saiyan.”

This movie focuses on the Broly, a saiyan with immense power. When he was born he had a power level of about 10,000. King Vegeta saw his power as a threat and ordered his execution. King Vegeta was unsuccessful as Broly and his father survived. Broly having matured became rather violent and manic, even for a saiyan. It’s unclear that this story will retell that one, or what changes will be made. One change, Frieza verses Broly, is something I want to see.
