League of Legends Puzzle and Dragons style!

Two popular games on two completely different platforms.
League of Legends; a hugely popular Massive Online Battle Arena (MOBA) played via your computer. Puzzles and Dragons; an incredibly popular puzzle based role-playing game (RPG) played via your iOS or Android smart phone. With games as popular as these it’s hard to imagine there wouldn’t be anyone who plays both, right?  Artist Soul Tour gives us a small look into what five popular League of Legends ladies might look like if they were thrown into the Puzzle and Dragons world!

Sona

Akali

Ahri

Lulu

Ashe

For fans of both games, this is probably as good as it’s going to get… but it’s better than nothing, right? You can check out more work by Soul Tour here!

The Ultimate Marvel & DC Mash-up!

There have been a lot of arguments since the dawn of comic about which super heroes or villains would win in a fight against other super heroes or villains  in the Marvel and DC fandoms. Artist Eric Guzman has created the perfect mash-up of the two in a series he calls “Amalgams”. Take a look at his creations here and be sure to find more of his work HERE!

Senshi Trainers

Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon are coming out soon! 
But not soon enough. Fans are finding creative ways to patiently pass the time until release; some play the older games, some dive into the fan fiction world, some indulge in the newly released Pokemon Go!, and some create some pretty impressive fan art!

Artist EarthGuardianMamoru came up with these completely adorable mash ups of the Sailor Moon and Pokemon series. Pokemon trainer cards for the heroines (and heros) of Sailor Moon!

Manga Recommendation: Majo no Shinzou


Title: Majo no Shinzou (aka Witch’s Heart)
By: Matoba
Genre: Fantasy, Supernatural

About: An immortal witch; a talking lantern; a heart; a miserable girl. What do they have in common? A tale that is 400 years old. The tale of the Heartless Boundary Witch is well known throughout the land. Sometimes the tale warns against staying out late at night while other times it warns against going to certain places. No matter how time has warped the story one thing remains constant: it is the story of a young immortal witch stuck on the boundary of life and death in search of a heart. Then there is Mika. Mika searches desperately for her sister with the hope that she will reunite her with what was stolen from her long ago.

Those of you who have read my previous recommendations (like Kasane and Plus Alpha no Tachiichi) already know that I have a soft spot for magical girl series and dark themes. Although I can’t quiet call anyone in this series a true magical girl since they don’t transform. They do, however, use magic. And of course no story of a magic wielding girl would be complete without some form of magical companion! Insert Lumiel- a rather gorgeous looking talking lantern with an origin that is both a bit funny and sad. What makes Lumiel different from other magical companions is that he teamed up with our magical heorine AFTER she already had her powers. For once, a magical companion who doesn’t have to explain the heroine’s powers at every turn!

So why should you read this manga? If you enjoy series like Puella Mahou Magica Madoka then this series is going to be high on your read list. Moe girls, magic, and dark themes are extremely prevalent in Witch’s Heart. The characters and the art style are also super adorable. I knew I was going to get hooked on this series in the first chapter when I got to see Mika do her thing…which I’ve purposely left out of these preview pictures because it would ruin the impact if you saw it out of context.
