Drop Out

Only a month remains before Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance is slated for release, but there's still no signs of what this seventh world immersed in sleep is. I hope we fans are not kept in the dark for too long; otherwise we would end up having to wait until the game was released before eventually finding out. But there should be nothing to hide, seeing as these seven worlds are not gonna be the only worlds in the game. So what's keeping things?

Leap Year

Nothing special, just my first blog post on a leap year date, seeing as I joined back in 2009 and the last leap year date was in 2008. Nothing special.

Pokémon 2

While previous generations of Pokémon games had third games, Pokémon Black and Pokémon White are doing the same, but with something completely different. We are being presented with two new games, Pokémon Black 2 and Pokémon White 2! And it seems that Kyurem is set to be the featured cover legendary Pokémon. Actually, this makes sense, seeing that should the storyline remain the same, the eventual showdown with N would have to still include your legendary Pokémon against his. This could also be why Black Kyurem and White Kyurem are currently identified as separate Pokémon. Previous generations gave you opportunities to catch both legendary Pokémon from the first and second games in the third games. Although this time around, this may not arise...

...I still want Pokémon Black...

The Unicycle!

Looks like a unicycle has been brought into Phineas and Ferb. The word has been used in the full version of the television series' theme song and now we see Phineas himself riding one. And it looks like in the same episode, the boys have brought Perry along for the ride!

The Land Before Time Appreciation Committee

It's time to take a moment to look back, reflect, and appreciate our veterans from The Land Before Time franchise and series who helped bring this epic series to life, having spanned for two decades before closing its books. So let's look at our best and long-time crew members, shall we?

Charles Grosvenor
He has taken part in producing and directing the films and the television series since the fifth film.

Anndi McAfee
She has been the voice of Cera from the fifth film onward and has essentially brought this character to life each time she changed in personality and adjusted to her family changes. Not to mention, Anndi McAfee provided, in my opinion, the best singing voice for Cera ever, hands down.

Aria Noelle Curzon
She was the voice of Ducky ever since the fifth film. Add on that it was she and Anndi McAfee who sang a duet cover of "If We Hold on Together", the main theme of the series and we've got two wonderful people who played their parts magnificently.

Jeff Bennett
He provided the voice of Petrie in all the sequels and the television series as well as a slew of other characters as well. Quite the talent!

John Ingle
He has voiced Cera's grumpy father, Topps, in all the sequels and the television series as well as narrated many of the sequel films. Similar to Cera, Topps' character has considerably lessened in his prejudice and bad attitude as the films progressed. Good thing too, because prejudice is always a bad thing to live by.

Miriam Flynn
She provided the voice of Grandma Longneck from the fifth film onward, as well as the voice of the mother Diplodocus from the ninth film, to which she provided a wonderful singing voice in the song "No One Has to Be Alone".

Rob Paulsen
He was the voice of Spike for many of the films and the television series as well as other characters.

So while The Land Before Time series may not live on forever, let's give thanks and appreciation to these veterans as well as everyone from Universal Animation Studios who gave their efforts to bring forth this awesome children's series and introduce lessons in life and friendship, as the series always had. We may not see a fourteenth film or any more episodes, so let's appreciate what has been done for us already.

Thank you, everyone! Anyone wanna join the committee?

Rangers Together, Samurai Forever!

For 2012, the Power Rangers Samurai season is getting a new makeover. Now, the second season is known as Power Rangers Super Samurai, in which the Rangers have been upgraded to continue battling Xandred and his forces of evil. What will be the final outcome? Will good or evil triumph? And will there be a seventh Power Ranger as seen in its Japanese counterpart? Only time will tell.

Rangers together, Samurai forever!

Play the Game Within the Game

In Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, recently the name of the world based off Tron: Legacy was been revealed as "The Grid". Apparently, this was to be expected and some say it's the world name that "Space Paranoids" from Kingdom Hearts II should have been called. But enough about that. What about that blasted seventh world locked in sleep?

The Plot Deepens

And while we Americans acknowledge Valentine's Day, the latest Japanese trailer of Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance has been released to the public on YouTube. And in it, we are treated to a more in-depth look at the worlds immersed in sleep, but we still have no knowledge of the seventh world yet. The one thing that's strange is that Ursula from Disney's The Little Mermaid seems to return as a boss battle, but the Disney worlds introduced were supposed to be brand new! Once again, this unreleased game continues to immerse itself in mystery. And as usual, Japan will be able to know all and reveal all first, as that's the way these games made in Japan work. They know before we see an overseas release. We have to wait months, but Japan only has to wait till the end of March. But we're still capable of spoiling ourselves when the time comes, are we not? Get that memorized.

Seven Sleeps

With Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance looming closer to its eventual Japanese release date, currently set for March 29, 2012, it has now been said by Tetsuya Nomura himself that because most of the game takes place in the World of Sleep, seven playable worlds must be awakened from the Realm of Sleep by Sora and Riku. As we know now, six of them have been revealed - Traverse Town, La Cité des Cloches, Prankster's Paradise, Country of the Musketeers, Symphony of Sorcery, a currently unnamed world based off of Tron: Legacy, and an unrevealed seventh world. Ah, seven does seem to be that most magical or lucky number, but... who's to say these are all the game's worlds? These are just the worlds locked away in sleep, waiting to be awakened. And what of this seventh world? What in the world could it be?

To Infinity and Beyond!

Here is my final improvement to my own fan-made Yu-Gi-Oh! series - an eighth Attribute known as Space! It matches the concept of the new age of Duel Monsters, which I had brought upon with my Epoch Monsters from earlier. But it should be noted that this is not my original idea to bring a new Attribute into all of this. Other users from the Yu-Gi-Oh! Card Maker site have come up with numerous custom Attributes, but I can definitely say that Space gets my vote on being an ideal new kind of Attribute. Back when Synchro Monsters first debuted, we were also introduced to the Psychic-Type monsters as well. Same deal here. When I introduce Epoch Monsters, I will also introduce new Space Attribute monsters. Get ready to venture where no duelist has gone before!
