Hello internet, and welcome, to the fandom review, with your host the fandommancan.
So I’ve left this series kind of to rot around for a bit but I’d like to get back to my original intended purpose of reviewing and reccomending fandoms for my followers, or anyone who stumbles across my stuff so I will be giving an in depth description and analysis of each fandom and giving my own personal opinion on its merit, as well as a basic rating from one to ten.
Anyway I’m starting with a fandom that most every american citizen has participated in at some point, or at the very least knows about, POKEMON.
Pokemon is a fandom I myself entered in the later stages of my seventh year of life with the game Pokemon Emerald, the third generation of the series and I have nothing but positive things to say for it. The series occurs to me as a massive inspirational endeavor with original story and mechanics to provide a fully in depth experience. However, as you know it divides into three parts, the manga, the anime, and the games, so I will rate each of these individually.
First, anime, if you can call it that I suppose. While arguably not even an anime at all the show provides a three dimensional idea of exactly what happens on a pokemon adventure and battle, supplementing the games where usually the imagination would have to prevail on its own. Ash, however, occurs to me as something of a weak protagonist toward the beginning of the series with more faults than learning has thus far supplemented. His character evolved into something far more interesting, and so have his companions. So, I’ll give it a seven, for a shaky start that became a genuinely intriguing ideal.
Second, the manga. This is easily the second most stimulating and invigorating story I’ve ever seen in a manga EVER. The characters are compelling and the story is darker and emotional than anything I could’ve expected going into it. The characters are realistic, the settings thrilling, and the story makes you believe that you’re seeing something greater than the casual game we all experienced as children. I won’t spoil anything because I want people to read it for themselves, but I will say this, you’ll have more clever shipping names than you know what to do with. Nine point five, for a nearly perfect story.
Third, the games. This may not be quite as iconic as the anime but still everyone knows it. And call me a geek if you will, i probably am, but I have played every game in the series, from original blue to sixth generation Y, from ranger to conquest, seen it, played it, loved it. While some games are better than others (Emerald weighs in far over the third installment of the ranger series) but over all no game series has been able to consistently follow a singular theme and make it heavily original. Conquest was the darkest, and maybe nostalgia carries over, but I believe Emerald was the best, with epic battles while still maintaining childish curiosity in the secret bases. Eight point five, for a thriling saga.
Too long didn’t read? A quick summary…
Pokemon provides an exciting ideal, in all of its forms, for those joining the series you can pick up pokemon emerald on coolrom and live the greatest experience and the indigo league is on netflix, the manga can be read on lots of websites. I reccomend all three very heavily.
Thank you for your time, and I’ll see you next time.
