So, it has been revealed officially now, and guess what... Meowstic is the cat Pokémon with gender differences. That means the Pokébeach leaker has been correct about everything. Now all we need is to see the starter's final evolutions.

The English names are cool. Love Tyrunt for the T-Rex!

In case the name didn't ring a bell, Mamoru Oshii directed some of the most unforgettable anime we've available at our disposal, to date. From Patlabor to Avalon to Ghost in the Shell, Oshii's left behind a legacy not to be forgotten; and set a standard, we can only hope inspires up and coming anime directors. In a recent interview with Oricon, the 64-year-old Oshii explained a bit about why he's no longer interested in directing anime:

“Making anime is also the world of the artisan,” Oshii explained. “I’m the kind who wants do my own part 120 percent with perfection, but because if I’m allowed to do that, the whole work will head towards ruin, so I think 90 percent is okay.”

“However,” Oshii went on to say, “the number of people within this country able to work with such high precision is less than 5 percent. The younger generation is more individualistic, and while the world appreciates how good their art has become, they’re unable to do exhausting work like their older predecessors. The biggest reason why I’ve stopped making anime is because the people who I can do [anime] with are disappearing.”

Melissa Harris Perry has a lot of feelings about Star Wars, primarily that it's racist, because Darth Vader was voiced by a black guy but played by a white guy.

The part where he was totally a black guy whose name was basically James Earl Jones...but while he was black he was terrible and bad and awful and used to cut off white men's hands, and didn't, you know, actually claim his son, but as soon as he claims his son and goes over to the good he takes off his mask and he's white.


Maybe she doesn't acknowledge the prequels as being real, and who can blame her for that, but Anakin/Vader is a white guy in those and he kills so many younglings. He also first "claims his son" while he's still "a black guy" (a whole movie before he takes off his mask) and, well, if you've ever heard Darth Vader's on-set voice, you'd understand why they dubbed over it with James Earl Jones:
