Finally, Ruby and Sapphire Remakes

Pokémon fans have been waiting for this day. We've seen FireRed and LeafGreen. We were hype about HeartGold and SoulSilver. Now it's time for Omega Ruby and Sapphire. If you haven't already been flooded by news updates, you can check out the information on the game from here. A picture of the box art can be seen below.
While I wasn't necessarily waiting on these games, I can say that I'm pretty excited. I've been an avid Pokémon player since Yellow, and Ruby/Sapphire hold a special place in my heart. I'm curious to see what other news will follow about the game. Will it be similar to X and Y? Will it offer a more fulfilling post game? Hopefully we will find out soon.

Another speculation deals with the aspects of the game. The most unique feature associated with Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire was the Battle Frontier. The Frontier was present in later games with a different cast and facilities, but the area started in these games. With a remake, the creators have a lot of potential to completely redo the Battle Frontier; making it bigger and better than ever. 

Fans can only wait in anticipation; I just hope we get more news soon!

As you may or may not know, Black History Month is a holiday that is present in North America. It's a way to remember, celebrate, and appreciate the history of African-Americans. Instead of doing the normal way of celebrating, I thought I'd combine anime with this holiday as a way to bring awareness, and to share a few of my thoughts as well. I've done a post on diversity in anime  before, and discussed a few of my thoughts on race and physical differences when it comes to characters. Since anime doesn't necessarily list off the races of their characters, it's a little hard to celebrate a certain ethnic group using anime. Although others have found ways to do that, one featuring African-American themed cosplay , I

Learning Japanese Using Anime! Words of Advice

Learning Japanese isn't really an easy feat. The language has a lot of vocab, there's three forms of writing, and not to mention grammar. So while being an otaku, it's easy to turn to anime as a form of education. Since we watch it all the time, why not pick up a few things from it? However, there's a few things you need to watch out for. Watch Out for "Personalized" Forms of Speaking In the Japanese language, there are many ways to address yourself and others. The common word for talking about ourselves is Watashi. However, there are different ways to do this. Another word commonly heard in anime is Boku. We can use this word when we are male speakers. If we are female speakers, we would use the word atashi. While this isn't limited to these set gender roles, saying boku as a female would give a tomboyish image; atashi as a male would seem feminine. We've also experienced other types of this speech.
