Channel Surfing: Valkyria Chronicles (TV Anime)

The following post was originally written in April 2009 as a First Impression post. However, it has been republished as a Channel Surfing post that fits into the brand of the blog series. Enjoy!

I recently finished watching the first episode of another series that is on the Spring 2009 Anime Lineup. This anime is based on a video game of the same name from good old Sega for the Playstation 3, Valkyria Chronicles. Just like Fullmetal Alchemist, this series takes place at the turn of the century. And just like FMA, there’s a war involved–without the Alchemy. Here, it’s just old fashioned strategic fighting.

Channel Surfing: Pokémon: Twilight Wings Miniseries

This entry is part 1 of 8 in the series Commentary - Pokémon: Twilight Wings

Today’s Channel Surfing entry is of a new webseries called Pokémon: Twilight Wings. It is based on the eighth and current generation of the franchise’s Sword and Shield series, set in the Galar region. When I first found out about it, I thought it was the plot of the recently announced expansions for Gen 8, and I hesitated as I saw that it involved Leon and Chairman Rose: the reason being is that at the time I didn’t participate in the championships yet, and didn’t want to be spoiled of the “results”, hahaha! Then I saw “anime series”, and had to drop everything I was doing at the moment to check it out.
