Deadly Class hmmm Dayum!!

So where do we start Deadly class is a series on the Syfy network, the series is also based on a comic of the same name. It seems alot of comics are being turned into live action series, sadly I have not read the comics which I believe is a good thing as I am super critical when a book or comic is adapted and key things that made the book shine are omitted for the sake of creating a more cohesive story for a viewer.

The series seem to jump right in and bring you into the fold of this mishap of characters who from the onset seem atypical, there are members from a cartel family,they have white supremacist, some black street thugs, the Yakuzas, the Triads and other various crime syndicates which I won’t get into. The group is headed up by Benedict Wong that you have seen in countless movies.

The series does seem as though it will have a solid start but I am unsure how it will survive as there are countless shows out there but I am extremely hopeful. Not much to really say until they wrap season one but so far I am intrigued and would like to see where they go.

DAYUM!!! M.O.B PSYCHO 100 Live Action review

So I was able to see the live action version of M.O.B Psycho which was released back in January of 2018. Upon hearing that they were making a live action version of an anime show I adored I was unsure how to take it in, not that I could do anything about that more than to either watch it or not watch it. We are all very familiar with how they handle converting an anime show to live action or even a game. Some directors are able to work some amazing magic an example would be Kenshin’s live action movies Which were frelling amazing might I add. On the flip side some production end up as complete and utter turds, two dishonorable mentions are Dragonball’s live action and the Avatar the last air bender. Yes I do know Avatar was not an anime. I could only hope that it worked like kenshin. Unlike Kenshin this series had more humor so that was alot they could fan-dangle.

I can clearly say I was actually quite surprised by the live action. There were one or two new characters which, how can I put it was way out there and really carried some elements of the show. There were also parts where they struggled to keep me entertained. I do have to give it to them for trying to stay true to the source with a minor deviations. I high recommendation is to what the anime first so that you are not driven away from a rather excellent piece of animation and story. Aside from all of my slights check out the live action as it was a decent production that with some fine tuning can become greater.
