  • Listening to: What A Feeling
Let me ask you something; how many crossovers have you seen in your life? Because for me, some of the best examples of crossovers include Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988), Cartoon All Stars to the Rescue (1990), Robocop vs the Terminator (comics made in the early 90s), Marvel vs. Capcom (1998-2011), and most recently the Megaman and Sonic comics "Worlds Collide" and "Worlds Unite". And of course there has even been an animated crossover film between Conan the Detective and Lupin III. Ordinarily, a crossover is a project in which characters from two or more different franchises come together in a single storyline. For example, if the Looney Tunes were to appear in a cartoon or a feature film that also starred Disney characters, that would be an example of a crossover. But for today's subject, I'm going to talk about something that I've fantazied since my childhood. For many years now, I have been a fan of Tetsujin 28, and Mazinger Z. Although Tetsujin predated Mazinger by whole decade, I have known Mazinger for a much longer time than I've known Tetsujin. Because my first exposure to the franchise was in the mid to late 90s when I saw the 80s Tetsujin 28 series, which was called "The New Gigantor" in America. While Mazinger Z on the other hand was brought over to the United States in 1985 as Tranzor Z. But back to the subject at hand. Years ago, I once imagined a crossover between Tetsujin 28 and Mazinger Z. And I always wondered, how would that turn out? Well, I think I already know the answer to that question; depending on how its handled, it could turn out to be the best crossover since Who Framed Roger Rabbit, or it could turn out to be a disaster like the infamous Mega X episode from the Ruby Spears Megaman cartoon. But I'm done talking about that show so I'm just going to move on.

Since Tetsujin 28 and Mazinger Z were two of the robots that gave rise to the giant robot genre that became popular in the 1970s and 1980s, I figured, wouldn't it be fascinating to see the two franchises come together as a feature film or as an OVA? Because if you ask me, I think this project could work out well if done right. Think about it, the two franchises have a lot in common despite being made in two different timelines. And I think the story could go something like this; we could take the 80s version of Tetsujin 28 and have it set sometime in between the events of Mazinger Z and Great Mazinger, but have this set in a completely different continuity altogether. Because remember, both franchises have had a number of reboots throughout the years. The 80s Tetsujin 28 series was a reboot of the original 60s series, and Mazinkaiser and Shin Mazinger Z were reboots of the original Mazinger Z from the 70s. As for the main plot, it could be something like this; Branch has been defeated by Tetsujin 28 once too many times. And after all his robots are destroyed, he turns to Dr. Hell, who is now one of the rulers of the Mikene Empire. Dr. Hell agrees to aid Branch and his henchmen with his technology, so that they can stand a better chance against their enemies. During a fierce battle with the Mikene forces, Tetsujin is nearly destroyed, but is saved by Mazinger Z and his brother Great Mazinger. Realizing that they're at odds with Branch who has joined forces with the Mikene Empire, the cast of Tetsujin 28 and Mazinger Z agree that they have to work together to stand a better chance against this threat. And now, here's which characters could be in this crossover.

Greg Snegoff Legacy by MDTartist83
Greg Snegoff Legacy
Since famous voice actor Greg Snegoff took it upon himself to act in absolutely terrible movies like the animated Titanic trilogy, consisting of Legend of the Titanic (1999), Titanic The Legend Goes On (2001), and Tentacolino (2004), I decided to whip up this info-graph to remind audiences that Greg Snegoff has participated in MUCH better productions in the earlier years of his career. And yes, all the characters listed here were voiced by Greg Snegoff. He should especially be familiar to those of you who grew up with Robotech in the 80s, as he was one of the main characters from the Genesis Climber Mospeada saga. Particularly, Scott Bernard. In fact, Greg Snegoff was one of our first recurring voice actors back in the days when they were first bringing anime to America. Robotech is one of my favorite anime series of all time, and it was one of the first anime shows I watched as a kid way back then. And that's one of the roles I remember Snegoff most fondly for besides his role as Golgo 13 from The Professional. Now, I know that Snegoff has played other anime and non-anime roles. But these are the ones I credit him the most for because these are the titles I grew up with.

Best Anime Roles

1. Duke Togo/Golgo 13 (Golgo 13: The Professional) (1983)
2. Rei (Fist of the North Star) (1986)
3. Taki Renzoburo (Wicked City) (1987)
4. Scott Bernard (Robotech/Genesis Climber Mospeada) (1983)
5. Kyron/Quamzin (Robotech/Macross Saga) (1982-1984)

Dishonorable Mentions

1. Maltravers/Baron Vandertilt (Legend of the Titanic) (1999)
2. Fritz the Rapping Dog (Titanic the Legend Goes On) (2001)
3. Smiley/Smile the Dog (Tentacolino)

Siberian Husky (Finalized)
Does anybody remember the old sketch I posted of a realistic Siberian Husky? Well, I decided to color it in and give it some shading and a background. Whew.

Death Battle Canus vs Nemesis Enforcer by MDTartist83
Death Battle Canus vs Nemesis Enforcer
Here's yet another idea I had for a Death Battle; Canus, the powerhouse of the Wolfpack Freedom Fighters, against Nemesis Enforcer, the silent but bestial powerhouse of the Cobra-La Empire from G.I. Joe. And for those of you who are wondering, I couldn't find any images of Canus since the Wolfpack are so underrated. So I used an image that I made myself.

Description:

I am a man who lives for art, storytelling, and entertainment. Since my childhood, I've been greatly fascinated by fantasy and make believe, and I've been a fan of many different media franchises, be they popular or obscure. And I have dreams of one day making an impact on pop culture through the things I do. I like to entertain people with stories and ideas, and I explore a variety of different ideas, be they original or from existing franchises. And I also do reviews of various pop-culture media ranging from TV series, video games, movies, and the alike. And I like to share my memories and knowledge with others. I'm also quite keen on Japanese culture. Especially with anime, which has been one of my biggest inspirations for engaging in art since my early childhood years, up to the present day.

Rules That I Live By:

1. Love your friends and family equally, no matter how they treat you.
2. Focus on the things you can do, and what you're capable of.
3. Life is as good as it gets.
4. You only live once in this life, so make the best of it while you can.
5. Nothing is guaranteed in this life except death.
6. Everybody and everything has potential to be something they're not.
7. Respect is given to people who deserve it. But not everybody deserves it.
8. Never resort to physical violence unless you absolutely have to.
9. Don't trust anybody unless you're sure you can trust them.
10. There's a difference between living in the past, and learning from it.
11. The future is never certain. But somethings are foreseeable.
12. The less you expect, the less disappointed you will be at an outcome.
13. It doesn't matter how old something is. It's what you do with it that counts.
14. Always be prepared for the worst. And expect the unexpected.
15. Forgive others not because they deserve forgiveness, but because you deserve peace.
16. Everybody has to dedicate themselves to something.

WARNING: If you troll or spam my page with petty insults just for your own personal enjoyment, I will block you without hesitation, and you can go bother someone else. I'm normally a reasonable and tolerant person. But trollish behavior will NOT be tolerated under any circumstances. You've been warned.

It would been nice for the both of us if it works. Wouldn't even play on my phone. What was the point of that page then?
