Neon Genesis Evangelion

At my local Bestbuy I learned Neon Genesis Evangelion 3.33 had been released on blu ray and I had to obtain the next chapter in the enhanced anime series. First though  I thought I share with you a memory flash back.

I was going thru my local flea market in Charlton MA back in 2004 and on a table were the first 6 vol of an anime show I had only seen commercials for and heard very little about. I decided to take a chance after several conversations with other anime fans who told me I was missing out.
I snatched up all 6 after making a deal with the vendor, and it exposed me to the most adult giant robot show of all time. I hunted down the other remaining vol to finish the show. I never got into the manga in which its based on.

3 young pilots living in post apocalyptic  Japan pilot  giant robots called Eva to defend their country against  demonic looking creatures with so much mystery  and intriguing  plot points you can see why it’s such a beloved show. The main character Shinji  lives in this harem style plot line in his apartment where he is the only male living with three gorgeous woman two teenage girls snd his handler. All the while his father is the head of the Eva program and is as much a  father figure as Darth Vader was.

The reason I bring it up on Radio of Horror is its the darkest anime sci fi show I have ever watched. Yes there is horror shows and Demon rape shows like hentai. But look at the over all flowing stpry narative of this one snd really get a sence of a foreboding snd Sinister plot.

Now recently the show has been released in these movie formats sets called 1.11 2.22 and 3.33. They condense the shows bigger plot points into movies that might be easier for the average viewer to handel.
This is enhanced by superior  animation and graphic touch up with CGI  being used to enhance the special effects.

3.33 You can not redo Is the newest Editon out now and if you never watched the show or were very confused by it’s story telling I recommend this set.

Hey everyone  who reads the blog and follows the show on WCUW 91.3 FM. I will be at the Hartford  Comic  Con this weekend. If your from CT come on down buy a ticket. As I have at previous  conventions we will be raising money for a charity. The Boston Children’s Hospital in Boston Massachusetts  saved my son’s life 8 years  ago and he continues  being a patient  there doing yearly check ups. We will be giving away prizes such as posters, t shirts, books, comics, DVDs and blu rays, and other assorted items from the horror industry. I will have my lovely assistant Elena Ferrari with me to help at the convention.

I may or may not have a show this weekend……live. Radio of Horror will still be on the air with past interviews and more.
Don’t forget to check us out on Facebook  and our youtube channel for past interviews.

Chappiy Wong Cosplayer

Posted in Anime/Manga, Cosplay, Horror Babes, Horror Survival News, Monsters, Video Games on April 7, 2015 by chrisdsav

I spotlight today one of the sickest Cosplays I have seen for a video game Chappiy Wong does a great rendition of the creature from The Evil Within video game. If you have not played the game yet this may confuse you. Its been out since last September and is worth checking out. The game is from the creator of Resident Evil.
Here are is a picture below and you can check out their Tumbler Page for more.

Bayonetta

Posted in Adult, Anime/Manga, Demons, Horror Babes, Monsters, Video Games, witches on April 4, 2015 by chrisdsav

Sega in 2010 launched what would become the female equivalent of Devil May Cry. A Gothic action adventure beat em up with horror roots and insane over the top game play.

image

Bayonetta was a huge success on the Xbox 360 and PS 3 and has returned for Bayonetta 2 on the Nintendo WiiU. As of this writing B2 has garnered more positive reviews than a lot of the games on the WiiU. Surprising as its a Sega game on a Nintendo console. Please understand that joke. Bayonetta goes to hell and heaven to resurrect a friend who falls in battle. No longer on a quest to find her forgotten memories she and her friends from the previous game like the photographer Luca and the bartender at the Gates of Hell forge forward with weird powers and a more story driven narrative. She once again has a kid sidekick this time a young boy named Loki….a trickster….hmmmm.

Packed with it is the original game on a separate disk.
Bayonetta is as adult and wickedly funny as she was before, the game is a hard core M rating with semi nudity in every scene and Bayonetta yelling FUCK YOU when she hits an enemy, Princess Zelda, Peach and Toadstool would never be written so charming. Samus is the closet thing I would say to match Bayonetta attitude but that’s still not on the same level of mature content.
The game play is so insane its more fun to die and let yo replay the level so you can capture what is going on in the game. Button mashing has become a video game staples thanks to the God of War series. You go too the Gates of Hell bar to level up and get new over the top combos.

Sega is unapologetic in the way she handles her sexuality.  (To promote the game they teamed up with Playboy Playmate Pamela Horton to cosplay as the character both clothed and nude.)
She has many crotch shots and twists her body in ways that would make a porn star proud. Its funny the first game came out right after a certain presidential candidate from Alaska was running for VP. Also the porno of Sarah Palin mixed with Tina Feys portrayal of her on Saturday Night Live, I think had some influence on her design …..but I may be wrong. This game series may offend some people but this is not for every one. Many critics praise the game for being fun and do point out the over the top sexual nature if it.
Anita Sarkeesian as usual hated the series
She said and I quote “Everything about Bayonetta design is for the pleasure of straight male games, I’m disappointed no one has covered her outrages over sexualized attitude.” Anita GAY WOMAN love this series too, I was happy to meet them at Pax East this year. She really attacked the series and once again finds nothing positive to say about it. Japanese based game company made a game like an anime character is no surprise. I enjoyed the game more than Lollypop Chainsaw which I didn’t like and thought was a terrible game.

Leigh Alexander of Gamasutra said “I really like Bayonetta personally feminism doesn’t mean woman’s bodies are bad. It upsets me when I’m told covering my body is what I should be live in.”

Those are two female industry experts on the series. For me its fun and a great game series to play.

Recently there was a Bayonetta Anime movie from Funimation released.

http://www.funimation.com/shows/bayonetta-bloody-fate/home

Bloody Fire it’s the story from the first game animated from the developers of Afro Samurai. The movie is available on blu-ray only but comes with a DVD.  If your in the Boston Area this weekend the company that makes this movie Funimation will be set up at the annual Anime Boston Event.
Helena Taylor voices Bayonetta in both games and the anime movie. Her sharp tongue, mixed with her British accent give the personality needed for this type of character.
We waited almost five years between games, I hope we don’t have to wait another five for the sequel.
