Favorite Anime Openings of 2016 : Week One

Heyos Everyones!!

Amazingly, 2016 really flew by, and it’s safe to say that the year is upon its final weeks! As I’d like to do every year, I want to end the year off by recalling some of our favorite openings these past few seasons, and showing off these openings and explain just why we love them so. Unfortunately, Danny won’t be joining us this year, but this is a perfect time for our newest member Mickey to show off his questionable taste in anime!! On that note, let’s begin! Please note, these are not in any order.

Lasting Impressions : Tales of Phantasia (1995)

Tales of Phantasia (1995)

(This review may contain spoilers for the following games. If you have not played the game before, please exercise caution before viewing this post. You have been warned.)

The Tales series has always been one of my favorite RPG franchises, even with the lackluster titles as of late. That’s not to say of the newer titles are bad, but the series recently begun traversing a wildly different path which deviates from what made the series great to begin with. I’m greatly looking forward to playing Tales of Berseria, but in the mean time, let us look at a what started the franchise, a fantasy adventure which travels across centuries, Tales of Phantasia

I’ve always been a giant SEGA fan, as my youth involved playing many games on the Sega Genesis, Game Gear, and DreamCast. Of course, after the DreamCast I switched to Nintendo console, and today I attempt to relive my gaming life by playing games of all consoles and generations. However, one RPG game that continues to resonate with me is Skies of Arcadia for the DreamCast. I never got the chance to fully beat the game until recently, and upon completion, I feel the game remains under-praised and deserving of a re-release.

Still Moving On!

I actually didn't care for this show after the ending. Adorable show, though.

Heyos Everyones!!

Let me tell ya, it’s been one hell of a ride these past few months. I like to keep updates more consistent with our musings if we have no content, but my personal life has gotten the best of me and I still have a tons more work to be doing. However, this includes work that will be done for panels this year, so I’m really looking forward to debuting some awesome programs and panels this year!

First off, I’ve not been able to watch a lot of anime these past few months. My living situation has been shuffled about, but now I’m in an area I can complete work, but of course, I still have other work to do with school and what not. However, this doesn’t mean I haven’t been coming up with panel ideas and working on new programs. In fact, Name that Tune will debut it’s new program at Sabaku Con 2016 (upon approval) and Phoenix Comicon 2016! That’s just the start of new programs, but we also have a few panels we’re adding to our PCC lineup and we hope it’ll be even more spectacular than ever!

There’s also bigger plans my team and I are planning that will hopefully come to fruition. We’ve noticed a lot of details we would like to iron out in this community, and we want to start an initiative in the future. Plans are vague at the moment, because we’ve not had much time to plan nor have we talked with as many people as we need to, but I’m sure as time goes on more details will be on the way!

In addition, it’s March, and that means Aselia Con 2016 is right around the corner! If you happen to be in the Dallas / Ft. Worth area, and you enjoy the Tales series, you should definitely hop on over to the convention! We’ll be there and having an awesome time!

Lastly, I want to say I’ve not given up on writing impressions! This month I’ve got at least two new impression posts, including one video game related post and one anime related one. My goal remains at least one a week, but I will not be going months without posting. I’m still incredibly frustrated that this is our first post of the year, but the blame falls entirely on me! Regardless, I look forward to the future months, and I hope everyone can find time to attend one of our panels or use our program(s) for your own panels! Until next time,
-Ace
