It’s finally happening: Sony has announced they are ceasing production of the Vita with no plans of a successor. It’s an ending that managed to be put off for longer than many of us thought. So, were Vita’s struggles inevitable, or did Sony set themselves up for failure right from the start?
Views & Analyses
Today, the third edition of the Sailor Moon manga is available in America. But as fans once again dive into the Dark Kingdom storyline, which has been covered several times before, what would be the best animated version? Even fans of Sailor Moon Crystal admit the story stumbles in several key areas, and the debate over whether it should have stuck to the Act-for-Act format will probably continue for the rest of the franchise’s history.
I’ve covered this before, but I decided to put up or shut up. No one will ever convince me that Crystal was the right way to do a reboot, and to explain why, I present to you Krystallina’s version of Sailor Moon Crystal — Sailor Moon Krystal perhaps?
Before I begin, my outline has two versions. The parts in * * are parts that would be in Version B, which includes the Senshi x Shintennou route like in Crystal.

Yes, I got on the hype train. But do these flashback retro consoles live up to the demand? Should you go stalking the stores to find one — or both — for yourself?
Ed and Al return, but is the Fullmetal Edition of Fullmetal Alchemist the ultimate version?

Who are meaner, boys or girls? While middle and high school females are seen as particularly vicious, studies suggest it’s the opposite. However, other studies hint that the long-held belief that women hold grudges longer than men is, in fact, true.
Well, from my personal observations and experience as a female… we women do not forget, and we are incredibly hard on our gender. I could go into the reasons why, from heavily gendered insults to media portrayals to psychological defense mechanisms, but that’s a topic for another day.
In fact, many of you are probably wondering why I brought it up in the first place. It’s quite simple: I hate Hojo from the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII, but I hate Lucrecia.

It’s time to play
everyone’s no one’s favorite game show: Takeuchi, Toei, or Turnout?
Don’t worry; you don’t need to be Ami to play.
Don’t listen to her by the way. Read more manga!
And now, a brief comic break.
Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds is not a disaster on the level of Norn9: Var Commons, but it is interesting to compare the PS3 vs Vita script vs the Japanese text.
So, anybody remember this announcement?
Yes, one of the features Kodansha Comics USA touted when they rescued the Sailor Moon manga was “an entirely new, incredibly accurate translation”. Awesome, right?
