This is supposed to be what?



Exploring Youtube and watching mecha videos, somehow I found this thing that is supposed to be some sort of upcoming Mexican Facebook game. 

Anyway, this shit I found was so full of crack I decided to write a quick and short post about it. 
 
A little research told me it was a Mexican game. Further research told me about other Mexican games like Taco Master and Sky Hero. I installed those and found them to be good, imaginative examples on how to make a nice game with a simple concept; they are fun mobile games for everybody.

The demo below, however, looks to be the opposite of fun.


Just by looking at the character move, or try to move, it is clear the gameplay will be horrendous. Graphics wise it seems decent, even if the character animations are choppy as hell. I honestly hope they change the music because the one they have here is monotonous and doesn’t match what we see on screen. Not to mention the menus get in the way and the sound effects are annoying, you can tell it's made in some sort of workshop or something so I hope they don't try to sell this crap.

So just what are we looking at, you ask? 

Well, that’s a Karmatron game. 

Oh, now you want to know what a Karmatron is?

I wanted to know too, because I never heard of that shit before. Well, thanks to St. Google, I learned it’s basically a Mexican Super Robot comic book that has not been relevant or popular in over thirty years. 

The interesting aspect of this garbage Karmatron thing is that it is defined by how much plagiarism is on it. A quick Google search proves the author of that comic book stole a Dr Strange cover and the full issue taking advantage that Dr. Strange has never been published in Mexico; it steals concepts and designs from Star Wars and Star Trek and other movies like Conan, Excalibur, The Dark Crystal and many more. The creator also lifted designs from Transformers, Mazinger Z, Getter Robo, Gundam and Robotech/Macross and also snatched designs from other Mexican properties, too.

You could say Karmatron's author took homages a little too far...
So… plagiarism aside, that game thing seems it will only be for Facebook but even so, there are good Facebook games.
 
What surprises me is that this lame shit has fans that created a fanmade intro, which sucks as much as the game and apparently copies from Star Wars, Gundam and Robotech/Macross as much as the comic seems to have done.

Plagiarism in the comic births plagiarism in the fanmade cartoon.

I guess this shows plagiarism happens all over the world, and that there are always people who think lame crap full of stolen ideas fun.

What to do...

I've been thinking about the whole reviewing manga thing and yeah, I'm now sure on how to do it.

One of the main reasons I can read manga or watch anime online are the fansub and scanlation groups that work hard so we can all enjoy our hobby, therefore I decided to contact the group doing the subs or the translations, if they are active, before I review something and ask them to share a few thoughts, that way I give them credit for their hard work.

Now I can get do that Dragon Ball Super review for chapters 1 and 2... and maybe 3 if I take too long. Oh well, it's not like the first two episodes have a lot of stuff to cover in a review anyway.

And here's a pic of a cute anime girl for you all:


Share your thoughts if you want.

So this is my first post...

Ok I'm going to review anime and manga I've read or watched here.

I'm planning on reviewing some anime per episode, mainly Dragon Ball Super, as I have high hopes for that.
And I'll review or recommend some manga and stuff based on it.

Anyway, here's an AMV with some Full Metal Panic goodness:


Most of the video is badass action from Full Metal Panic, mixed with some hamster shit anime here and there.

Still a cool video.
I can't make out what some parts of the song say, however.
I think half of it is like in Spanish or something, but my Spanish is pretty lame but I am trying to improve.
Oh well.
