Oh. You weren’t invited to the China’s 19th CPC National Congress? Oh, what ashamed. But I am sure if you are in China, you would have tuned in and watched the monotone speech given by China’s incumbent President Xi Jinping which went on for an excruciating three hours and twenty three minutes. We are not a political website, btw, nor are we pro-China, and therefore, we shall refrain from touching on what was the speech was about. But as you have come to expect from a speech of this nature, it was appropriately interjected by enthusiastic applause from the floor.

Yup. Apparently, the much anticipated world’s first mech robot battle has happened. It was conducted in private, without spectators, due to safety concerns, at an abandoned steel warehouse in Japan. When the challenged was issued by the American’s MegaBots team, the Japanese’s Kurata built by Suidobashi Heavy Industry has all but one condition: the battle will be strictly a melee battle. That’s right. No projectile firing weapons. It is just the good’ol hand-to-hand robot fight. The U.S. team accepted the condition, but their Mk.II at that time wasn’t rigged for an all-out brawl and so, the team set out to build the third generation Mk MegaBot, the Mk.III Eagle Prime, which the team took to Kickstarter to pull in funds for the build.

Ninja was a covert agent (but more like mercenary, really) in feudal Japan who have been depicted in numerous movies and TV series. On screens, ninja are often depicted as skilled, elusive, and stealthy force, who are often loaded with gadgets and does disappearing act. In some way, Batman is very similar to a ninja and therefore, it kind of make sense for Warner Bros. Japan to come up with an animated feature called Batman Ninja. Yep. That’s right. The Bat has gone Japanese. Though we are not sure if the Bat will be played by a Japanese version of Bruce Wayne, or it is just Wayne-san in medieval Japan, as a ninja.

Holy shit. Thirty years? Already? Wow. Time really does fly. I fondly remember listening to Def Leppard, which was arguably one the biggest rock act of the 90s, when I was in my late teens. But that was before I became obsessed with Slayer and Sepultura, that is. Anywho, the British rock band Def Leppard is marking 30 years of the band’s seminal album Hysteria by releasing a 30th Anniversary Multi-Format Anniversary Edition Hysteria (Remastered 2017).

Well, it looks like UK’s obsession with gender quality/diversity has found its way to long-running, popular television series Doctor Who. How so? Well, whether you like it or not, the next 13th Doctor Who is going to be played by a woman. Yes. You heard that right, mate. A female Doctor. While female medication practitioners aren’t new, a woman playing the fictional Time Lord is the first. You could a say it is a milestone, you know, if you are into all the gender equality. Then again, I am not mega fan and so, whoever takes on the character does not bother me a bit, though I cannot say the same for hardcore fans who have been following the Doctor since like forever.

If you have not heard, there’s a new Godzilla movie, but this time round, it will be in animation form – Japanese anime, to be precise. Perhaps the most exciting part for fans of all things sci-fi/robots is, Izmojuki is involved in the production of the movie as the mechanic design assistance. The film, titled Godzilla: Monster Planet, is voiced by Mamoru Miyano, Kana Hanazawa, Tomokazu Sugita, Yuki Kaji, Junchi Suwabe, as well as Takahiro Sakurai – all whom I have no idea who they are. But who cares right? They will be just voice-acting and this being a Godzilla movie, Godzilla is what matters and obviously, those machines they will be turning out to deal with the radioactive monstrosity.
