On this episode, Ichirou goes on a date with Zena. Later, the city gets under attacked.

I have been following this series from the start because I’ve read the novel (which is currently volumes 1 to 4) in preparation for the announced anime back then. So far, the adaption has been pretty accurate to the original novel story. But, they skipped some minor details I thought were important and especially on this episode.

Anyway, it was nice to see our male lead and Zena go on a date. Also, it was just plain adorable to see Pochi and Tama do their tasks. Now, I can’t wait to see the next plot coming. Overall, cool date and some action.

Conclusion: Cool date and some action. …continue reading

    

Dragon Ball’s Androids - The Alluring Synergy Between Man and Machine

Android 17 and Android 18, Dragon Ball Super

If you were to ask many Dragon Ball Z fans about iconic villains in the series, the first one to come to mind would be Frieza. After all, he was the egotistical and high-class leader-type that made him a one-of-a-kind villain. Despite the treatment Frieza’s getting in Dragon Ball Super, another set of “villains” turned heroes have gotten even more spotlight. The Androids (notably Android 17 and Android 18) are loved by a good number of fans today. With Dragon Ball FighterZ’ focus on a new Android, I am fascinated with the fascination of humans whose bodies are infused with technology.

Here’s a brief background on the Androids, they first appeared in the original Dragon Ball manga as servants of the Red Ribbon Army, whose goal was to kill Son Goku. Most of them were defects and their creator, Dr. Gero, plotted over the years on how to create better Androids. Dr. Gero would continue to test while also turning himself into an Android. Dragon Ball Z introduced the Androids that fans know and loved today in a Terminator-style story.

The story showed a future where Androids would kill almost all of humanity and its heroes; one that the heroes in the current timelines were trying to prevent. 4 Androids stood out in the story. They were Android 17, Android 18, Android 16, and Cell. 17 and 18 were modified human brother-sister siblings, 16 was 100% mechanical, and Cell was a bio-engineered Android that was made of the cells of other warriors and became the main villain of the overall arc. What makes the Androids frightening is that their scientific enhancements can surpass human limits in most cases.

With all the technological innovations in full force, there always comes the questions about how much of them are going …continue reading
