Thus far, 2016 has been filled with ups and downs, but one thing I know that cannot be a disappointment will be Finding Dory. The movie, a sequel to Finding Nemo, takes place six months later. After Dory spontaneously remembers something, she sets off on a journey with both Nemo and Marlin to find her family.
Recently, I’ve been getting back to my otome game roots. However, I find it difficult to recommend most of them here because they can be very hard to get your hands on legally. Lately, though, indie devs seem to be trying their hand more and more at these visual novels/dating sims. And while we get some truly atrocious ones, sometimes a treasure like Cupid is made and everything in the world seems right again.

These days when an anime catches my eye, it’s typically because everyone and their mother is reblogging gifs of it on my Tumblr dash. Recently, between the last dying breaths of Dangan Ronpa and the never-ending stream of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, I’ve managed to catch wind of another series that seems to be right up my alley: a series full of magic, fairies, and a girl who (hopefully) ends up finding her inner strength.
Orphan Black Season 4 isn’t out yet, but we have a number of things to tide us over until it arrives. Obviously, we have the trailer above, but the Orphan Black folks also kicked off the season with a really cool fanart contest—the fanart of one lucky fan will be used as the actual poster for Season 4 across all of BBC America’s promotional materials (and, of course, the fan will be paid for their work). That’s pretty huge, and I eagerly look forward to the results of the contest. The trailer also seems exciting, even if it took us a while to get to it.
I’m not sure how I feel about this remake. If I had to guess, I’d say cautiously optimistic, but not overly so. Although I take some issues with the original, I love the 1977 version of this movie and thus far the 2016 version looks as if it’ll be similar in name only. I don’t think that’s necessarily a bad thing, per se. After all, remakes need to be different enough to set themselves apart from the original. But if this trailer is anything to go by, the 2016 Pete’s Dragon looks as if it’s going to be much darker and serious, and that’s my biggest problem with it thus far.
